Hey TT, long time since I’ve posted in SRK. Hoping I can get some info on my JLF.
So I’m sure 99% of you are aware of the old Madcatz SE/TE washer issues that plagued/still plague the sticks (Where the metal washer under the stick would become loose, and move around during use, scratching the PCB). Well, I’ve been using various sticks over the last year now: TE’s, Qanba, etc. Anyways just about every stick I’ve used has had that extra “click” feel/sound when I am moving the Joystick (Nowhere near as severe as the old SE’s though). I’m curious----is that what the click is? Is it that damned washer issue?
It boggles my mind however because I must have replaced at least 4 or 5 JLFs in the last year between multiple cases, and they’ve ALL had that click. It doesn’t necessarily mess with my gameplay at all, aside from the mental note in the back of my mind that it’s clicking at all. I just want identify the issue, and if so, does that mean it’s scratching my PCB? =/ And really, over 4-5 sticks have had it this problem?!
If it helps, it’s a Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK, the usual TE drop in replacement.
