My joystick quit working today after a particularly frustrating round of SSFIV. I was mashing dash-back when my joystick quit working. I opened it up and took a look inside and didn’t see anything that looked broken or off. I checked all of the “clickers” on the PCB and they all were in place and still clicking but the inputs from them didn’t make it to the 360. If the controller-card thing was broken the buttons wouldn’t work either, right? So I’m thinking it’s just the joystick but I don’t know if I should replace the PCB or the whole joystick…or if that will fix my problem at all.
It’s had heavy, almost daily, use for 2 years so I figure it might just be finally wearing down.
Edit: I did notice that when I was looking at everything that there was a bit of glue spread across some of the circuitry lines on the controller…card thing. I’d imagine those had been there though and probably aren’t causing my issue. It’s not like the controller’s heat melted the glue and it spread across the card…it doesn’t get that hot.
Edit: Edit: This is the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK by the way, I replaced the original SE joystick.
