Ive had my TE for about a year, and for the first ~10 months it worked flawlessly, but a few months ago it started to randomly go undetected by my xbox and i would get the “Please plug in a controller” message from my xbox. It got worse and i noticed it would only really happen if my stick moved, mainly when i tilted the top up or down. I tried to open it up and look if anything was loose, but i didnt really know what to look for so i didnt notice any problems, i eventually duct taped the cord at where it leaves my stick so it couldnt move there, and that worked for a few months but now the duct tape isnt helping and its getting worse to where i cant even play without it going off.
I asked someone about it and they said it was probably the USB cord that needed to be replaced or a frayed cord. I dont know how to replace it at all, and i dont know what cord to use, i assume one of these would work: http://www.lizardlick.com/USB-Cables_c_243.html
but again, i dont know the first thing about this, can anyone point me in the right direction?
