today while i was reorganizing my recording area i pulled out the xlr input on my countryman type 85 di box when i pulled out my mix cable. There are 3 wires (in order: orange, red, dark orange/brown). I dont know anything really about soldering but how is it supposed to be resoldered as far as the mic pins.

Also, when i turned on my interface today both mic inputs are clipping from hum even when the input level knob is all the way down. The first input has always done that, but now the second one is doing the same but its 2 db louder. It was working 2 days ago so wtf? When i plug my guitar cable into the second input the hum stops and the guitar cable works. But i cant run my (broken) DI box through is cause it is through XLR.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
