Internal wire pulled out, 1 channel dead.
My headphone's left channel was dead so i opened up the lead end (the one which goes to the iPod) of the headphone and found a misplaced green wire. the wire seems to be a bundle of thin, laminated filaments and silk. Please see the image:
The wire should be at the encircled area (according to me). But it doesnt seem that it was soldered there. Rather it looks like it was pressed and held there by the string. So my questions:
1) Should it be soldered over there(i mean can the wire be soldered)
2) exactly what part of the wire is a conductor? i tried brushing and pressing it against the lead but i wasn't able to get any sound.
