Good day

I did not get any help from the forum, but I did phone Minelab and their reply is that the RED goes to the tip-end of the plug, WHITE to the "next ring" and BLACK is the earth!

Hope that this may be of some help for others that might experience the same problem.

Koss earphone plug Empty Soldering the headphone cable

Post  krazycaptain Tue May 28, 2013 10:29 pm

I have damaged the cable so cut the wires and then tried resoldering.
The wire has copper cable and a nylon core combined.
Could anyone give correct procedure to resoldering cable to new plug?
Cheers

Not sure what you're asking there krazycaptain. If it helps, when I encounter a wire that has nylon with the copper, I first hit it with a cigarette lighter to burn back the nylon and then solder the wire with my soldering gun like normal.
