    So, I recently picked up a PS3/PS4 fighting board with Paradise Arcade breakouts, and after I loosened the screw for the "left" slot on the input header, I couldn't tighten it properly. Even if I turn the screw clockwise, the thing that's supposed to hold the wire in place won't raise, and eventually it hits a point where it won't turn any further, but the thing that holds the wire in place is still lowered.

    Is there anything that I can do about this, or will I have to return the board and get a new one?

    Edit: Never mind. I somehow managed to fix it by just turning the screw counterclockwise until it was as loose as possible then sticking my screwdriver into the slot for the wire and moving it about for a bit.

    Recently started getting 8 minute timeouts on ps4. I downloaded the latest update for my fightboard, but I can't get it recognized by the updater. I am holding the PS and Select buttons while plugging it in. Any suggestions please?

    There is a really weird problem going on for me. I've been using the board on PC just fine, but when I connect it to ps4, stuff starts to happen.

    Usually it's just giving random inputs all over the place, like I'm facerolling on a stick, despite that I don't even press any button or touch the lever. After that, it starts doing the same thing on my laptop, and barely even connects to PC. That thing wears off in some days, after which I can use it fine on laptop or PC. But with ps4 it starts going nuts again.

    Today I was playing on ps4 just fine... for ten minutes. Then it disconnected and didn't connect to anything until I dismantled the fightstick and put it back. Then it started to give random inputs again, even on my laptop, and it didn't connect to PC at all. Just wtf is happening?

    Before this I also had problems after 4.70 PSN update as some guys above, with random disconnects. This thing with random inputs started to happen right after 4.72 update.

    how're the random inputs? are they regular like you can see it's all directional inputs or something?
    you've change other good wires?

    They're pretty much constant. When I plug the stick into a ps4, it immediately starts mashing the home button, barely even letting me to choose a profile. When I plug it into my laptop right after that, when it's still doing this, I can see the inputs being pressed constantly - it's mostly Share and Start buttons, and an "up" direction, these ones are flashing like crazy. Others show up sometimes too. I've tried another, newer USB wire, that didn't help at all. I didn't try using the alternative usb output or changing other wires - because I'm bad at soldering and I don't have other spare wires.

    I've plugged it into my PC today, and it worked just fine, nothing like this happened. It's working fine on my laptop now too, and I'm too spooked to plug it in my ps4 ._.

    It seems that my problem has to do with USB ports on my PS4, and not the fightstick at all. That is hella weird. Just plugged my DS4 to charge up while playing, and it started mashing R2 and L2, and when I plugged it out, it stopped.

    The 4.73 update dropped recently on the ps4, so i installed it and my stick is working fine... for now. It also started disconnecting from time to time, which it already did before it started going dumb. Now it disconnects, like, every 8-15 minutes. New board firmware incoming?

    you mean, it used to work fine, but after update PS4 to V4.73, the disconnection problem starts to happen?

    I mean, it was a freaking mess on 4.72, which I already described a few posts earlier. 4.73 seemes to have fixed that problem. Before 4.72 everything was fine, except for occasional disconnects. Which still happen on 4.73. These disconnects don't happen on PC ever, so I don't think it's a device's fault.

    Anyone knows anything about fightboards from aliexpress? Is this original brook pcb?
    I need one to replace my zerodelay pcb in my hitbox.

    maybe we can get together and build a birdhouse or something

    The main pcb is brook but the breakout board isnt afaik. Honnestly for the price youre better of spending 10$ more and getting a brook ps3/4 + audio imo.

    In one of the pics the Brook logo is visible, but in the next it's not. I've seen knockoffs of those PS3/PS4 Fight Boards in the wild. Aliexpress is not known for its adherence to quality standards (translation: Aliexpress, as a China-owned tech retail center, is rife with bootleg shit).

    Depending on where you live you may be able to get the same board (but vetted as legit) with a good breakout board. If you live in North America then you have THIS option.

    Else, heed @Dubon and get a PS4+ audio board.

    I saw that if you hold 1K while connecting it to a PC, the board will be recognized as a pokken tournament controller for WiiU. Recently the Switch was updated so that it would recognize WiiU pokken tournament controllers, so is there any way to get this board to work with it? I've tried holding 1K while connecting it to the console, but didn't have any luck.

    This only applies to the Brook Universal Fighting Board, not the Brook PS4/PS3 PCB.

    Dang. Thanks for the response, though.

    Okay so I just got this board and began soldering it until I realized the Player LEDs are labeled R, G, B.

    Now from my knowledge when I worked with the UFB it has individual Player LEDs with P1 thru 4. Does that mean the PS3/PS4 board does not support Player LEDs? If it does then it only goes up to 3 players?

    Also I'm not sure if this board has points for the LS, DP, and RS switches.

    Thanks in advance
