Fixing Xbox 360 Charge and Play Cable!! Simple!




About: I just dig taking things apart and putting them back together, and modding anything. Repurposing things and newly getting into woodworking :)

hey everyone been a long time! well im back! WooT! this is a quick simple fix for your cable mine was broken where just about everyone's is broken at. i basiclly just felt for the break and cut a little ahead of it. spliced the cables and just connected the red and black and the shield that covers all the wire. didnt connect the white and green because i have no reason to, i just keeping the cable plugged in. be careful when stripping the wires because you may only get on shot at it. good luck to everyone. just let me know if your have any question or need more info.

    I'm not understanding exactly what you did and as a fix for what. Where exactly does everyone elses cable break at? Mine seems to just be loose somewhere because I bend a certain point and it flickers the light. What was the reason you didn't connect the green and white? What are they for? The shielding also serves as some sort of power transfer, because a bit of it is wound up and goes into the pcb. I'm hoping this discussion will help me to fix my cable. It's not about not charging the battery, it's about the cable connecting to the controller at all. Here's a picture of what the inside looks like and what actually connects to what. In case anybody want a good look at what's inside the housing.

    the green and white are the "data" part of the cable. i only required the power part since mine is a wireless paddle and i just wanna charge my batteries
