I got a plasma ball recently, but it is not working. The electric wires (there are two) had been detached when I lifted the globe, and now I havent any idea how ro re-assemble it. No instructions given. Please tell me which wirs to put in the central black ball. There are two, a thick white one and a golden one. Are both sent into the inner ball? Please give detailed explanation. Thankyou.

It is actually frustratingly common for store-bought plasma balls
to have defects. They are often made very cheaply. Without knowing
anything about your specific plasma ball and how it was constructed, it
is completely impossible to tell you how to repair it. I would
recommend that you take it back to the store that you bought it at and
ask for a replacement.
