How to fix loose wire
 
2 Attachment(s)
I have a PSU CX500 and one of the wires is loose. My pc won't turn on because of that. I tried to remove the metal thingy with no luck. So i inserted the wire into the metal and it was fine. But the wire got loose again.

I want to know if that can be fixed

Thanks in adv

Sure can, get "wire glue", you can find that on amazon. Follow the instructions and it could do the trick.

OR! You can take that metal clip out of the connector, buy a measly foot of wire at your local home depot and some electrical tape and cut and add as you need.

if you have some soldering tools you can fix it permanently

Vegan is suggesting to pull the metal socket from inside the plastic connector housing, then solder the wire to it. This is the proper way to permanently repair it, as you don't want loose electrical connections. However, I would suggest RMA'ing the PSU at corsair.com/support, especially if you're not familiar with, or comfortable using, a soldering iron.
