An HDMI cable provides a single solution for sending high-definition video and audio from one device to another. Those who have installed HDMI cables in their walls are ill-equipped to removing them if a connector becomes broken. You can repair the broken connector by replacing it with a new connector. You will need a few tools found in most homes as well as supplies acquired from an electronics store.

Step 1

Cut off the connector from one end of an HDMI cable with the blade of a utility knife. Dispose of the connector in the trash.

Step 2

Slit 15 inches in from the cut end on the outer insulation with the blade of a utility knife. Peel back the outer insulation and cut it off the cable with the knife.

Step 3

Push the wire mesh back from the cut end until you come to where the outer insulation is still on the cable. Peel open the foil insulation with your fingers to reveal a twisted pair of wires lying above four other pairs of twisted wires. Untwist these two wires from each other. Strip a half inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires with the wire strippers.

Step 4

Cut the broken connector end of the HDMI cable off with the blade of a utility knife. Dispose of the broken cut connector end in the trash.

Step 5

Slit eight inches in from the cut end on the outer insulation with the blade of a utility knife. Peel back the outer insulation and cut it off the cable with the knife. Push the wire mesh back from the cut end until you come to where the outer insulation is still on the cable. Peel open the foil insulation that is now revealed with your fingers.

Step 6

Untwist the pair of wires lying above the four other twisted pairs. Strip a half inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires with the wire strippers. Attach each of the exposed ends of the wires to one of the slots on the end of a UR splice connector. Attach the exposed ends of the two wires from the HDMI cable to the slots on the ends of the UR splice connectors.

Step 7

Untwist the four pairs of wires from the broken HDMI cable and from the HDMI cable. Strip a half inch of insulation from the ends of the wires with the wire strippers. Repeat the procedure with the UR splice connectors to connect the four pairs of wires that were twisted on the HDMI cable with the four pairs of wires that were twisted on the broken HDMI cable.

Step 8

Close the foil back over the HDMI cables and slide the wire mesh back so the wires and UR splice connectors are covered. Wrap strips of electrical tape around the wire mesh on both HDMI cables.
