Noticed recently one of my sticks was dropping “right” inputs. Tonight it completely went out. Stick is a round 1 Madcatz TE but I gutted the pcb and threw in a MC Cthulhu. I got the stick in SF4 training mode and held right and it registers but drops constantly. So far I’ve just opened it and double checked the wiring, it looks good. I put a multimeter across the right direction and ground, before the wires enter the screw terminals, here was the result:
Without anything held down - steady ~4.75v
With right held down - jumped between ~1v, ~3v and 4.75v constantly.
Tested holding the stick left and when activated it dropped to a clean 0v and held there.
My main question is, should I bother testing anything else? Is this conclusive enough to just say “it’s something with the stick” and order a new JLF? Thanks!
