Hey guys, I am not too sure if this has already been discussed and if so I appologize but recently I have been having some connectivity issues with my TE stick for Xbox 360. It seems like some part of the USB cord is damaged or shorting out. If I jiggle the wire a bit it will work but any sudden movement will disconnect it again. I was thinking about going down to the local computer store and getting a 15 foot USB cable and replacing it (IE, soldering it to the main board in the TE and so forth). I am by no means an expert at soldering so was wondering if anyone could offer help if they have experienced this issue. When opening the TE case and looking at the board with the USB i notice 5 wires (white,black,green,red and another fatter black one).
I decided to open a spare USB cable and strip it to expose the wires and found only 4 wires coated in a bunch of silver wire which I am assuming is some sort of ground. I just wanted to know if this coating is indeed the 5th black wire? Sorry if my explanation is confusing. I would just like to fix my TE instead of buying a new one. Thanks a lot guys.
