You fried the DC controller board. Easy fix though.

and check your stick to make sure you dont have a short between the power and ground. Something like that is usually what fries them.

just get a new DC

For a fried controller port? That seems like a waste, even given how cheap used DCs are.

You don’t even REALLY need to replace the resistor, just twist it till the two legs/wires meet and make a connection. Should work just fine.

I followed that same tutorial to fix my controller board, cause same thing happened to me while working on my DC stick.

Best of luck.
