So after breaking one PCB (I believe through static discharge but i’m not sure, I describe the symptoms here), I rip open my main ps3 controller, continually earthing myself and handling it very carefully. When I connect it to my PC, the usb test window shows buttons 1-8 all activated! Surely these things aren’t that fragile? And is there anything I can try to try and troubleshoot the device and get it back on its feet?
EDIT: Is it possible this tupperware shell i’m using could have acquired static and is destroying the pcb’s I have seated inside it?
EDIT: Seems as soon as I reinserted the–i’m not sure what it’s called, the plastic thing, back into the socket, it stopped ‘glitching’. Anyone know why that might be? Maybe it’s related to why the last one stopped working after I detached the daughterboards?
