So like an idiot it opened up my Mad Catz SF4 SE joystick and voided the warrenty after it started sticking so I decided to pop it open and try to make it work like it should.
Well I got everything apart and super glued the washer down so that it would not have the sticking problem that myself and so many other are experianing.
Well I am guessing I damaged either the connector that plugs into the PCB, or the PCB itself. It would not surprise me if it was the PCB that got damaged, because I really had to pry that clear plate off and the black switches got kinda beat up.
Here is the deal though, when I plugged the stick back into my xbox it would only move in two directions: right and down…so I took the stick back apart and messed around with it again and now the stick will only move in one direction, to the right.
Hopefully from that description someone can tell me what I actually damaged, and potentially how to fix it.
I really don’t want to have to go out and by another arcade stick because they are expensive and very hard to find, so if there is a fix out there please let me know.
