rgb wiring help

hi ive had an issue with my rgb cable going a bit iffy when moved and then lost a colour completely when ive opened it up ive found this green wire has come away and i dont know which pin its from, there's a couple of pins that look like something has been soldered there at 1 point

i know this aint the fixed rgb as i can only find the diagram for those but at the moment i aint too fussed as the picture on my lcd is spot on, well was untill this snapped now im using composite and its appalling lol

any idea where this green wire goes so i can resolder it, thanks

Seems like the green wire is actually the red signal and belongs next the the blue wire (which has the green signal).

Pins 22 and 23 has +12V and +5V supplies, so you should try to a void those, otherwise I don't think it would cause harm to connect it in the wrong place. 12V to the RGB signal inputs might do something bad.
If you look at the bend on the green wire, it also looks like it used to be on pin 3 on the empty pin with solder.

demolition is correct,
3, 4, and 5: Red, Green & Blue.

You should currently have colour that is just missing the red component.
Straight back where it came from, next to the blue wire.

Edit,, this existing thing is also a pretty slack job.
if you want to get fancy, strip a little insulation from a much thicker wire,
and slide it down the green wire, then solder it, then slide the insulation
over the pin you soldered.

Or just don't strip the wires back far enough to let them touch each other.
If there's any other display problem, that might be what's going on.
