    IT still works but it is a little bit scratch up.

    Is it dangerous if its scratch up?

    What part of it is scratched? The white box thingy, cable or connector? Send pic if you can

    The pics turned out unclear.

    The thin wire. So I am guessing that is the cable?

    By the way.... is it safe to put tape on it?

    Yes, it's fine. The tape will work as an insulator, just like the plastic around the real wire

    alright thank you

    Duct tape or plastic tape are both fine right?

    Use duct tape, it's stronger and thicker thus safer

    I have to disagree with Hellhammer. If you are using the tape as an insulator use electrical tape. Duct tapes is meant to meant to be used as an adhesive not an insulator. Electrical tape on the other hand is intended to be used for electrical insulation.

    And besides you can get some white electrical tape and it will blend right in with your white cable.

    Can't plastic scotch tape be use as a adhesive and a insulator?

    The scratch is only minor I think.

    It was between duct and plastic tape, electrical tape wasn't included :p

    I agree with you though. Duct tape works fine but it's not it's main purpose thus electrical tape would be even safer

    @OP: Just put something. Any plastic will work as an insulator anyway
