    Is this fixable?

    Today I noticed my video all of a sudden getting worse. Then I discovered one of the wires has come loose from the stem. Can I just push the wire back in the little hole and hot glue it in?

    You need to remove the plastidip and re-solder. I have no idea if that's even possible

    The plastidip seems to be a bit too hard to peel away. I guess there's a chance the connection can still be there if I just plug it in and glue it.

    Difficult to fix. I know an user who drilled the epoxy, making the hole left by the detached steel wire bigger until he clearly saw the shiny tin, and resoldered it, but it is a bit difficult to do, and not sure it is worthy.
