I seem to have broken my fightstick


#1

I have a MadCatz TE fightstick, and recently took it apart, and replaced the buttons, and ball top. However, after doing so, down-back and down-forward are no longer recognized. Did I move something out of place, or did I mess up the wiring some how? And is there a way to fix it?


#2

Check that you plugged the 5-pin adapter back into the stick in the correct orientation. It’s probably upside down.


#3

Im pretty sure its in the correct way. There was glue on the top facing me, so thats how I put it back in.


#4

Wiggle it more.

The Madcatz connector is crap, I’m surprised MarkMan hasn’t pushed for a more accurate connector.


#5

If its still not working, would I have to replace it with something like this?

Or would I replace the body itself, with this?

The Focus Attack harness is not what you need, that would be used in a custom mod job because I believe it only has one connector and bare wires on the other end. Go to http://www.gdlk.co and look for the “JLF-TE Cable”. Unfortunatly I’m not sure how you would go about troubleshooting this without actually swapping parts. The JLF harness would be the cheapest part to check first though, and it’s a good thing to have anyway because the MadCatz harness is crap.

so does down even work?
test out all directions fully and see which ones work and don’t
