A few weeks ago I finished my first stick mod -> http://forums.shoryuken.com/t/check-out-my-new-arcade-stick-no-image-quoting/73936page-392#post-5538348
I am very content with it as it reacts great and the buttons / stick are heavenly. However I’ve noticed a recurring problem that worries me…
When I start playing everything is perfect, but after about 1 to 2 hours, I have a period of +/- 20 seconds where all the buttons don’t react at all. The stick works fine during this period only the buttons are completely non-responsive. After a short period of time they work perfectly again, but after another half an hour the same thing happens again.
It’s not a single button that stops working. It is either any button at random or all of the buttons that stop working.
My fear is that it’s the PCB that is a little bit fried but no soldering iron ever came close to it, let alone touch the print itself.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could cause this?
