broken cord on x12
how can I replace the cable on my x12. it is broken about a foot below the control box
Is this a good question?
Headphones released in 2011 for use with XBOX 360. They are identified by the model number X12.
mark, open the control box, remove the foot of broken wires and resolder the longer part back onto the control box PCB. When you unsolder the cable from the control box, mark down the color code to each solder connection. That way you get the cables right. Take pictures and make a guide for the rest of us:-) Hope this helps, good luck
I figured I should chime in on this topic. I had a handful of customers bring me these and most of them are the same song and dance.
Here are the colors of the wires on the control module. Please keep in mind that all the stray ground wires, including the USB - are all tied together. If you miss any of the other grounds the audio and/or mic will not work.
In case you are curious, the strain relief is reusable if you are careful. A pair of pliers and 1/8” drill bit will be helpful. I will literally use my hand to manually “hand drill” the remainder bit of the cable jacket out until it is free enough to pull with pliers. Never use any sort of power drill or actual hand drills as the torque will literally tear these apart at the slightest snag. To get the wire back in, a bit of isopropyl or a very small dab of cooking oil will work, other lubricants may contain solvents that can eat away the jacket over time.
