So I just got my Limited Edition BBCS stick from Madcatz.
This is the exact same model as any other TE Amazon.com: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Fightstick Tournament Limited Edition: Playstation 3:?
The Joystick works perfectly.
The Home button works perfectly.
The Start button works perfectly. I assume Select works just as fine.
The analog switch for the Joystick works fine, as well as the lock.
NONE OF THE EIGHT FACE BUTTONS WORK AT ALL.
The console does not recognize any input for the face buttons.
I don’t think the Turbo function is working either, although at this point it’s impossible to know for me.
I really hope this issue is common and has an easy fix. I am totally willing to open up my stick to fix it, but I am going to need a little help from you guys because I have never done this kind of thing. I am pretty much guessing that with my stick they pretty much forgot to actually wire the buttons! I have no extra parts/replacements.
Besides this stick I already own the crappy Hori FS3 but I never ever opened it… never had the need to.
I had never touched Sanwa parts before but I was surprised to see how light the buttons are, they almost feel flimsy to me, compared to Hori buttons.
I have terrible luck with electronics. Sending this back to Madcatz is going to be a last recourse for me because despite warranty I would still have to pay shipping to the US and back again (I live in Costa Rica).
I payed $200 for this stick. This is heartbreaking. I am so pissed at Madcatz/Sanwa/Aksys/whoever is responsible for this failure. How do I fix this?
Can somebody please kindly explain to me how is it that a brand that so many people in this community keep in such a high regard has completely and utterly failed me? I am just beginning to show the extent of my frustration.
