    On the first picture, is that wire on the left bottom not connected to anything? If so that came disconnected from that circuit board over to the right.

    Those connections need to be soldered back on, at the very least. Perhaps the cables even replaced. Perhaps the driver units are damaged? Who knows. It doesn't matter.

    As you don't know stitch all about electronics, I'm afraid that you haven't a hope in hell of repairing them, no matter what advice you get here. In particular, soldering irons are hot, dangerous devices. Used incorrectly and clumsily, they can give you terrible burns and can start fires in your house. Not worth it, huh?

    If you've never used one before, then you need to be supervised and trained in their safe use and proper use first.

    Either give them to a knowledgeable friend to fix, or throw them away and get new ones. Take care not to rip the cable out this time...

    Sorry to put a downer on it, but I'd rather put you out of your misery than keep you hanging on with false hope, dude.

    Well dude unless I have them in my hands I can not fix them . I mean I could but I need to have them here ! So what you should do is put them back together get the receipt out and take them back or you can go to wall mart and get a new pair or send them to me here in New Mexico ( YES it is part of the USA ! ) and I can fix them up for you . Other than that , I do not know what you can do . The wires have come off and you need to get them back ONTO were ever they go ( As I do not have them here I can not tell were they go ) .
