    Hi guys, one of the speakers on my kids headphones stopped working, so in my wisdom, i decided to take it apart to see if there was a loose wire. [​IMG]

    there was one, but as i was fiddling with it, another came loose very easily.
    so now i need help to rewire it, if possible.

    they are Philips SHL8800

    here is a diagram i drew.
    could someone help me where i need to solder the gold and red wires?

    I just fixed a pair of these I got off ebay a few weeks OK.

    The Blue/red is the positive to the right speaker.

    The gold is the negative and the red is the positve on the left speaker. I don't think it maters which of the two points you solder to
