Talking '92 29' Excella - monitor wiring

I sure hope you can justify my purchase of a Benzomatic soldering tool yesterday at Home Depot! So, I was checking my monitor closely after draining black and gray tanks because it always shows them more full than they are. If you can tell me of an adjustment to the monitor for that (I know they are totally empty and they still show 1/4 full on monitor) that would be great BUT....

What I really am writing about is a blue wire that has come unattached from the back of the panel. I've just tried to add two photos - not sure if that worked. The wire is light blue and seems to have come unattached from a spot about one inch to the right of a Phillips-head screw located at the bottom center of the green panel-board. If you can verify that that is the right spot I will use that Benzo-solderer to reattach...hopefully with no bad results. By the way...that wire doesn't seem to make any change to the reading I get so if you can tell me what it does that would be appreciated. Tim L

Can you get a clearer picture of the spot where you expect to 'reattach' that wire.

BTW, too much heat can damage the board... so, it is helpful to 'tin' the wire you plan to solder to the board FIRST. Then you will be able to place the wire onto the spot and place the 'heat' of the soldering iron on the heat transfers through the 'tinned' wire, it will easily transfer the heat to the spot you have chosen. Once you see the solder begin to 'flow', remove the heat while holding the wire in place... using some needle nose pliers keeps your flesh from cooking.
Peace and Blessings..
