Hey so I have a Samson CO1U condenser microphone
that I bought used so i don't know if it has warranty. Well it was working fine until suddenly as i was singing into it, it just died. After opening the microphone up and pushing and pulling on some of the wires, it started to work again. However, the second time I used it the next day it suddenly stopped working again, so I opened it up and this time after (softly) pushing and gently tugging on one of the wires (the yellow one), I accidentally pulled it out of the connector board. How should I go about it in fixing it??

I'm not certain if just using electrical tape to connect the yellow wire back to the board will solve the problem, since it didn't really work before i pulled out the yellow wire without messing with the wires.

I'm not an expert on microphone repairs, but I do sing with a band, so I use a mic a lot. My best adice is to give you two options. First option, and the best, IMO, is to buy a new mic. If you can't afford one, then either you or someone you know who has decent soldering skills will need to re-solder the wire to the board.
