We're going to have to break out the soldering iron - either to replace the connector in the PCB or splice the cable.

Alternatively one could theoretically get the individual cable crimps out of the connector soldered to the PCB. I think that path would lead to madness.

On the majority of these that we fixed it was the connector that broke and the fix was directly connecting the puck. If that is your problam, replacing the puck is unlikely to fix the problem (no i don't have the connection info)

black chassis earth
brown 9V in
red audio earth
orange from amp 1
yellow from amp 2
green bass out
blue to amp 1
white to amp 2
black mute out (high=on)

The little IC appears to be a dual power opamp to drive the headphones, which is also what most of the electrolitic caps are for.

L+R -> bass mixing happens here but low pass/high pass filtering appears not to happen here.

Ring - chassis earth

It looks like wire colour code matches pin number for the remaining signals. My probes are too large and my fingers not steady enough to be sure - I need to find a dead apple to get a female socket to test properly.

Sorry - completely back to front. Pin 1 appears to be attached to black-next-to-white down to pin 8 on brown.
