Z-5500 control pod wire damaged

Recommended Posts

the big dill    5

Hello Neowin!

My sisters Hamster got away a few days ago and chewed through a hard to replace cable... :(

I was wondering if anyone could assist me in which direction to go in terms of replacing this cable?

They don't do spare control pods..

I'd recommend sourcing a replacement or splicing the cable and attaching new wire then heat shrink it

Yep, they said they don't repair them... told me to get in contact with a local audio shop for repairs :\

The first response i get charges $45 for an estimate :no:

Similar problem here...  Trusty faithful Z500 unit playing up and isolated to control cable.  It's like $500 or so to upgrade to a unit that is as good or better.  What a waste of money.

 

So I am wondering if I can just repair this control cable.

 

Any ideas please.  The images above don't work (cannot be found).  So I am hoping I can just splice the cable on to a new connector.
