I searched the forums and found a related article but it’s really old and no one has responded so I decided to create a new thread.
I recently moved my ps3 from one room to another and when I plugged in my joystick into the ps3’s usb I saw a small spark. After the ps3 turned on the joystick didn’t seem to work. I unplugged everything, reconnected it etc. but it still didn’t seem to work.
I’m not an expert on these kinds of things but I’m wondering exactly what happened and what I can do to fix it. Is the usb connector fried or pretty much every single component? Personally, I’m thinking that if I do in fact need to replace anything, it’d be the usb connector and maybe the ps3 board. The stick and inputs should be fine right?
Is there any way I can find out if anything needs replacing by using a voltmeter or something like that?
The joystick is custom and build by a friend of a friend of mine but I can ask for details about parts or upload pics or videos if you guys need it.
I hope you guys can help me out cause I haven’t played sf4 since it broke months ago. I pre-ordered SSF4 and really want to be able to play it as soon as it comes out on my stick.
