Okay, let us face the truth here. Every single thing in this world has its own limitations. Even big things get broken—let alone your tiny USB cables. However, this does not necessarily mean that you should just throw your USB cable only because you have found out this morning that it is no longer working (though it just worked perfectly the last time you used it). Maybe the only reason that your cable is not working is that the tiny wires inside it loosen up a bitor something. The idea is that although they are not working right now, there might still be some chances that these USB cables can still be fixed.
Here are some USB cables quick fixes that should always come in handy. And yes, you do not even need someone professional or have to be an expert yourself.
Step 1. First off, you will need something that you can use to cut your USB cable open right so that you can work on its internal parts. You have to identify which part of your cable causes the problem so that you can directly open your cable right in that part. Be careful when cutting the cable, though, because you would not want to cut the internal parts of it and just make your problem even worse. Make sure that you are only cutting the rubber or plastic covering of the cable so that you will be able to extract the inside part.
Step 2.Keep in mind as well that USB cables are made up of tiny, delicate wires, which if messed up, can make your USB cable malfunction. Now, what you have to do is to get these tiny wires out and then cut these away from the white piece inside.
Step 3. Once you have already extracted the wire out, you now have to solder it to the plug. The first thing that you have to do is to tin all the wires so that they will be a lot easier for you to work with. And then you have to strip out the mess that is currently on the connector using a de-soldering wick. Once you have already done these things, you can now start the actual soldering process. Just remember which wires actually go where, or else this will not work! Just keep on soldering the wires until they are already connected properly. You can now check if your cable is already working by connecting your device to your computer. If your computer can now recognize your device, then congratulation! You have done a great job.
Step 4. Although the cable is now working, your job is still not exactly done. You still have to put all of the parts together again. All you have to do is to just repeat the all of the steps, only in reverse. Re-assemble all the white parts inside and then insert them back into the cable’s metal container. After putting it back inside the metal container, you now have to close the container up and then tighten the grip of the cable in the end (you may opt to use a pair of pliers for this). And to avoid the cable from getting ripped right after you have just put it back together, you may want to secure it with the glue gun so that the parts will stick together.
Step 5. Once you have already assembled the metal part of the cable, you can now put back the rubber or plastic covering of the cable. You can wrap it around the metal using the glue gun so that they will stick together.
After following these steps, voila, you now have a working USB cable again!
