Brawl Stick constantly disconnecting


#1

I have a MadCatz Brawl Stick (PS3 ver.) that disconnects constantly for some reason. I cracked it open and there doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with the USB cable, but it still disconnects. Is it a problem with the way the cable is soldered to the PCB or something? I can post pictures if needed.

Try replacing the USB cable, all of it.


#3

The cable could still be damaged internally, try replacing it.

Sounds like a plan. I actually have a USB cable I salvaged from an old TE stick; do I just cut the old one off and solder the other one on?

Yeah, simple as that. Worst case, you’re in the same boat minus a couple inches of a usb cable.
