Broken C9 Socket. String doesn’t light.
I have a string of C9 LED Christmas lights that are not working.
I used a light pro device to test the electrical current going to each bulb and I believe I found the culprit. The electrical contracts were coming out of the socket! I tried putting them back in but that did not solve the problem. I touched the exposed contacts to the bulb wires (tried both sides) and that did not work either. I can plug another string into the end of the malfunctioning one and the second string works just fine. I also checked the fuse and that is fine. Checked the bulb and that is fine too. I am thinking I just should bypass this particular socket. Is that possible? If what wires do I cut and splice together? See image. Thanks for the help!!
