About 8 months ago i made two custom sticks and dual modded them for 360/dreamcast. I used madcatz fightpads for the 360. Soldered everything, secured with hot glue. They’ve been working like a charm until now. One of them suddenly died, no light from the home button, not recognized by the 360, no luck on the PC either. The stick still works on the Dreamcast.
I figure either the pcb is not getting power or it’s just…well…broken. Ive covered pretty much all of the contact points for the power with glue so it’s a bit tricky measuring if power is reaching the pcb. Any tricks to that?
So…anything i can do? Is this type of behaviour common, and if so what could be the problem? How do i isolate what is causing this, is it even possible, or should i just give up and buy a new one?
