Guitar cable repair didn't work, did I solder it wrong?
Hi! So this was my first ever time soldering yesterday, I wanted to repair a guitar cable which was already faulty when I got it. I changed one jack, soldered the inner wire to the tip terminal, the outer shield wires to the sleeve, but since I didn’t practice soldering before, I just jumped into it, there is a large chance I did something wrong. Is it bad if the solder on the sleeve touches the ring terminal? Also, I melted some of the black parts of the jack. When I touched the two sleeves or the two tips using the multimeter, numbers were just jumping like crazy..158, 1, 811… (It was on 2000 Ohm setting) And If the problem was with the other (angled) jack..that one I couldn’t even take apart, I couldn’t see anything, so I don’t know if there’s anything wrong with it. At first sight I thought the soldering on the other jack (which I changed) was broken. Sorry, these may be very basic things to a lot of you, but I just got into trying to fix my own things. Any ideas for this?
