Help Dreamcast stick problems


#1

Couldn’t find any info on this but I recently obtained 3 agetech dreamcast sticks. I believe all the buttons work but the sticks themselves, one does not work at all, one does not register up, and one only registers down and right. they are the original unmodded agetech sticks. my question is, is it just the microswitches or could there be some other underlying problem. I was going to try and mod them with new sticks and buttons. just want to see if that would solve the problem. thanks in advance

Multimeter.


#3

so it could be multiple problems?

No! Use a multimeter so you can check for a current and isolate what’s wrong with the sticks (most likely bad wiring or switches).
