When diagnosing electrical issues with your equipment, it is sometimes necessary to “probe” wiring. The preferred method of probing is to back probe at the closest connector. Back probing is inserting a probe into the back of the connector, without harming the integrity of the rubber seal. This can be accomplished with a “T pin”, available at most office product and discount stores. If it is necessary to, probe through the shielding, or cut the shielding in any way. You need to repair the damaged shielding or risk long term corrosion issues from moisture to the conductor or pin. To repair the shielding electrical tape is usually not the answer, as it will not create a water tight seal. I know of 2 products available that will seal the damaged shielding, Liquid Electrical Tape, or clear lacquer spray. Both work well, with the clear lacquer leaving the wire colors visible in case future diagnosis is needed.
Remember: Always repair any damaged wire shielding, to avoid more problems down the road.
