Anyone have any clue as to how this could have happened or what might have gone wrong?
I was playing yesterday (Modded WWE Brawlstick) everything was fine.
I went to the bathroom and when I came back my buttons worked but the joystick was not recognizing any directions
I figured the Sanwa harness might have come loose, I checked it and nothing was out of place, unplugged and re-plugged it but still nothing.
I quickly turned it over and checked that the LsDpRs wasn’t the problem, was on the Dp, moved it around and checked, still nothing.
I didn’t know what to think, but I had another Sanwa pcb so I got it and plugged it in, still nothing
I didn’t have another Harness with both ends but I did have one with only the side that plugs into the sanwa pcb and loose wires on the other end.
I started checking online but couldn’t find one with both sides.
so I figured I had to de-solder the female end that’s in the main pcb & hook the harness loose side straight to it.
I busted out the soldering iron and de-soldered that part, I placed the harness wires into the holes to try and see if I could get any inputs out of it before soldering it up and nothing.
I don’t know if just placing the wires in the holes would be enough to get an input to come out, but with most electronics I’ve messed with it should be enough to at least get a sign that what your about to do will work, I decided to come and post this to make sure what I am doing is right before I go ahead and solder it up just to see if it works. I haven’t gone ahead and done it just because it’s not showing any sign of hope that it will work.
