HELP! I Failed Sleeving

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
So I was sleeving my PSU and one of the wires was impossible to take out. Here's what ended up happening:



The pin is still in there and I have no idea how to remove it in its current condition



What should I do now? I don't have tools of any sort (other than that ATX Pin remover)

Push the pin out with a jeweler's screwdriver. You'll need a crimping tool and some pins. to make a new connection.

that sucks. pretty simple now though, like mentioned you just need to dig it out now. I sleeved every wire in my case but that cable, could not get the wires to release to the point of almost destroying the 24-pin. Then i bought a sleeved extention and its all good

a tool that looks like this one

http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-crimping/m...mping-tool.htm

it's pretty straightfoward.. put new connector in crimper, insert wire, crimp, voila!

another look, not the same connector, but same process..

you can crimp with a par of pliers, i do it all the time. basically your just pushing the metal tabs over the wires to make the connection

It may, but this is the correct one.

well, I guess it would do the job for the crimper you posted Winrahr.. plus you get a wire stripper with it.. that's kinda helpful..

so you got your options from best to cheapest lol

a crimper like the one in my link and in SmasherBasher's link, or the one in your link or simply a pair of pliers lol

The correct tools make all the difference in the world. I can properly crimp a pin to a wire the first time every time and it only takes about 10 seconds.
