Last week I experienced joystick failure after installing 2lb spring in MadCatz TE. My friend has the same fightstick and allowed me to borrow it so I could narrow down the issue. After swapping out the joystick I determined it was the PCB that was the cause of the issue. He told me I could borrow it to play Dragonball Fighterz.
Today I decided to swap out the spring in my friends fightstick and now the joystick stopped working.
I didn’t unplug any of the connectors on joystick or PCB when installing the spring because the cables are long enough to open the lid without tugging on the cables.
I didn’t come into contact with PCB while installing the spring.
I’ve made sure that all connectors on the joystick and PCB are firmly attached.
I tested the joystick with a multimeter and it has continuity in all directions
I download Display Fightstick Motion on my computer and connected the fightstick without the brook converter. The software picks up the button inputs but nothing from the joystick.
I’m completely lost in what might be causing this.
Has anyone experienced this?
Thanks for reading.
