MadCatz Fightpad Receiver fix?


#1

Hi, so my receiver/dongle for my fightpad (PS3) has recently stopped working. It just constantly blinks, and because there is probably no way i can mail in for a replacement dongle since i purchased it a while ago, is there anyway i can fix this myself? Is it possible to attach a usb wire manually into the pad? and if so what materials would i need for the process. Thanks

It’s just the normal Madcatz Fightpad.

Nope, there’s no inherent way to fix it.

You can try to see if madcatz will send you a replacement dongle even out of warranty, they don’t ask for your receipt or anything if they’re just sending you a new receiver. I got a new one when mine was out of warranty, but it turns out the dongle wasn’t the problem…my pad still doesn’t work to this day.

Ah ok, I tried emailing them but no response. Did you have to call?

Yes, call. If you email them it will take like 3 weeks to get a response.
