Hi I have a hori RAP ex for the xbox 360
There was a section of the cable (the part that came right out the back of the stick) that was faulty (only worked went bent a certain way) I read up on the forums about how to fix it. I tried to re-splice the cable and take the bad section out. Unfortunately my wire strippers kept on cutting a couple of strands of wire every time i tried to strip the cable. Let’s just say I made a little too many mistakes… I’m very near the part where the usb cable goes into a 5-pin harness connector that goes into the board.
I’m quite an amateur at this stuff and I have a few questions…
- Is it okay to cut a couple of strands of wire when stripping?
- Can I just buy a new USB cable (without the xbox breakaway cable)? and can install it onto the harness (the harness has 5 wires coming out of it but I only see 4 inside usb cables) and is this difficult to do?
- Is there an easier fix? (as far as I know I cannot buy another usb cable that has the same harness)
Thank you in advance
