I can tell that RDC knows his shit, his threads have helped me loads in the past.
There are now 2 common ground wireless boards, but this is the thread corresponding to the one I’m wiring up. The other has it’s own thread.
Unfortunately I am not at home (where my project is, naturally) and won’t be till the weekend, but I’ll try to explain things as best I can.
Stick I’m building:
CG Wireless 360 pcb, Sel,Gui,Sta,A,X,B,Y signals are all soldered to their respective contact pad, below the black epoxy that I scraped off. All connections are functional. D-pad signals are all soldered to corresponding vias (found thanks to RDCs mapping). All are functional.
Pots for analog sticks are, at the moment, and unless I decide otherwise, staying on.
Both triggers have been removed, left trigger has been neutralized.
Now, forgive my lack of initiative here, but I never really bothered to figure out which solder point for the trigger is high and which is low… I’ve just been kind of looking at pictures and going “oh, so that goes there” without necessarily understanding what that or there is. Thus, I assumed that the emitter of the transistor in the converter should be soldered to the “top” of the three solder points, when looking at the pcb as if you were holding the controller.
Like I said, I managed to destroy the top two solder points while removing the trigger… Thus, I used a via for the wiper (again, thanks to RDC’s mapping) and soldered the emitter to the “top” of the solder points for the left trigger, as according to the pcb diagram on slagcoin, that is the common line for the triggers. I figured it would not make a difference…
At the moment, it SEEMS as if both triggers are neutralized, although I haven’t really checked the right in a proper manner. Before neutralizing the left though, as soon as I plugged in the pcb, the 360 dashboard would scroll as if the left trigger had been depressed, which is no longer does. The right trigger seems to do absolutely nothing regardless of whether the base of the transistor is touched to ground or not.
Let me know if there are any other details I could provide.
Thanks a whole bunch Toodles.
