I need to bridge two pairs of pins together on an Xbox 360 AV adapter, and the most common method is to solder them together (to fix a rebooting issue). I don't mind doing this, but I'd like to create a video tutorial for other 360 owners that have the same problem, and not every 360 owner knows how to solder.

With that said, is there a way to bridge a connection without soldering (in a way that's easy enough for everyday folks).

Here's a picture of the AV Adapter (minus the casing so you can see the wires and pins)

If there are holes in pins - you can put piece of uninsulated copper wire inside and jam it hard with aluminium foil ball/balls.

Hmm, maybe some sort of silver paint, conductive epoxy, some other conductive goop. It depends on how much current. How good a connection do you need. You'll have to do some tests. (Personally I like solder, 60/40 with rosin flux core.)
