Epiphone Sg wiring repair help

Hi guys, I'm sorry to make my first post me asking for help, but I'm pretty desperate.

Basically, about a while ago I borrowed my friend's guitar, an Epiphone SG. Well I was standing on the guitar lead by accident as I picked it up, and broke off the pickup. So I open the back of the guitar to try and fix it (thats what the bits of plastic are) and managed to do so, so I can put in the guitar lead with no problem.

But, while doing this some guitar wires came lose. I looked up wiring diagrams, and reattached the wires with electric solder. However, when I finished, the guitar would still give no sound out of the amp. None at all, it gives a low hum like the amp normally does when no guitar is plugged in. I have double checked the wiring diagrams and I can't see where I have gone wrong.

So, can anyone let me know whats wrong? I've attached some pictures to show the guitar wires to help and see if I attached a wire wrong. Any help would help loads. Thanks in advance

All the pictures are on my Flickr stream, just click on the link, and flick through the pictures. Thanks again
