Hopefully someone can help me out. I recently modded a FS3 by swapping in 6 sanwa buttons. It was a little hairy, I’m not the most skilled at soldering but I got everything to work. My biggest hurdle was when the contact ring for the “X” button fell off the PCB and I had nothing to solder the wire to. After reading around here and clicking links I was able to just follow the line on the board and find the resistor, R20, it connected up to. Then I successfully soldered the wire to the correct side of the resistor by building up a little extra solder to hold the wire. I taped everything down to avoid too much stress on the wires and contact with the bottom plate.
Fast forward about 3 weeks and somehow (nerd rage) the connection at R20 broke, not just at the wire, but the entire resistor came off and is gone. At this point it seems my options are:
Does anyone have an unwanted PCB from an FS3 that they modded, in good condition, and would be willing to sell me?
Is it possible that I can just replace the resistor with something from Radio Shack? If so, what I would look for?
Is there some other generic PCB out there that I can buy online that could replace the FS3 one?
Thanks for any help.
