Alternate solder point for UP button - XBOX 360


#1

The solder pad for the UP D-Pad got ripped off. Is there an alternate solder point for this?

Here’s a diagram for you to highlight a new solder point of there is any :frowning:


#2

there’s no other point on the front. If you use a little bit of logic however, you will find the correct point to solder to on the back.


#3

Not that easy, I’ve tested most of the points already and no luck. There’s no garauntee that there are points on the back…


#4

hopefully this helps

Did you add the red circle and arrow or is that part of the original?


#6

Sorry, what’s RDC stand for?


#7

i added the circle and arrow.

and RDC is a person. an incredibly helpful one. :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

Thanks. Is there an archive of RDC’s trace images?


#9

Nonphixion is exactly right, I’ve used that trace on the back many times also.
And if you ever ruin anything else, drag a multimeter across the pins on your IC to find a point. You’re gonna have to use fine soldering techniques to solder to it, but it’s better than throwing away your controller.
