I tried to solder a new jack on my hands free since the old one was destroyed.
After I stripped the wires on the jack and the hands-free, I burned the wire tips red hot with a torch to expose them of their insulation.
After making the connections and "knitting" the wires together I tried adding solder to them but they all seemed to repel it. What gives?
Even though the connections are solder-less now, the headphones seem to work just fine.
