I’ve been having some issues with my arcade stick lately. I added a bunch of new sanwa buttons to my T5 hori stick years ago, so I have some experience soldering/opening it up…etc. I’m very confused about what’s happening now though. Basically, sometimes when I do an up input, the start button gets triggered.
I’ve opened up the stick (I can provide a pic later), and I honestly can’t find any logical reason this is happening. The wires are not near each other and I’ve put plastic ties around the button wires and stick wires to keep them separate. The only thing I could think of is that the button is sensitive enough that me moving the joystick around is causing the housing to vibrate enough to activate the button. Although this assumption would be weird considering it only seems to happen with an up input. If that is the case, I do have an extra button I can switch out for it.
Does anyone have any other input about what could potentially cause this? Thanks!
