I don't know a lot about electronics repairs, but I've got a relatively expensive laser mouse that got a frayed connection on the wire:
I'm wanting to repair it as it's out of warranty. I've cut the cable on either side of the "stopper", isolated each of the individual wires, and stripped the ends off in preparation for splicing.
I've read some instructions that indicate I should do an inline wrap and then apply some solder.
Is there a better way for wires this small?
Is there a particular type of heat shrink wrap I should put on this after it's spliced? Or will electrical tape suffice?
Inside the mouse, the cable is connected to a little plug. To me, it looks a lot like the fan plugs inside a PC. It's got 5 pins each 1mm apart. If there were a replacement plug I could buy and crimp the wires into, that'd be great!
