Bad Pad Help!


#1

So my ‘X’ button on my new mod won’t work. I’ve tested every other button so the common ground isn’t the issue. The pad that is supposed to be brought low by a button press is never high. There is no obvious solder doing this (between it and ground holding it low) and the PCB looks fine. I am fairly to totally confident that the pad is still intact.

Solution 1 : Drop my ALL buttons and have to manually set up every match (ugh)
Solution 2 : A pull up resistor on the correct pad to Vcc (assuming that a high to low transition is what triggers the button)
Solution 3 : Scratch out some of the pad to ensure there is no connection to voltage low.
Solution 4 : Buy another god damn controller and do this all again.

Help please =). 110+ dollars in supplies/parts/tools and several hours and my stick still isn’t working =(.
