ok i have one 20ft guitar cable and for some reason it no longer works.....i dont know why because i have unscrewed the metal things at either end and checked the connections and they are fine.....but it stil doesnt work and ther is no visible damage to any of the cable......the only other thing i can see on it is the near one end of the cable it looks like the wires inside of the black insulation on the outside have maybe twisted.....but nothing to cause damage has happened to it from when it last worked until now.

any ideas what this could be?......and im skint at the minute lol so i dont really want to have to go and buy new cables

the wires just have broken inside your cable Don't buy the cheapest cables the guitarstore near your town has, they're probably shit

have you tried using a different cable to check its not the guitar or amp?

That always seems to be the problem if you didnt do something to the cable.

Check it with an ohm meter to see if you have continuity on the wires from one end to the other. Also, check that you don't have a shot circuit ( which means one wire is touching
the other). If you don't have an ohm meter check with someone thats into electronics, they
will check it for you.

and watch how you pack your cables. very important.
