Madcatz TE S input issues


Today i booted up USIV and after playing a few minutes i noticed i was having input issues with my Madcatz TE S fightstick 360 version (play mostly on pc). It started with when i pressed a specific direction on the stick a couple of times my character would stay in that position or move in that position after letting off of the stick. So i assumed it was the stick failing so after changing usb ports and connections i noticed it was doing the same thing. After throwing a LP’s i noticed my LP button was working approx. 7 out of 10 times. well after further testing i found out all 8 face buttons did the same exact thing, worked approx 7 out of 10 times.

Does anyone know where the best place to start as far as repairing goes? I don’t have the tools to take it apart at the moment, will be doing that tomorrow to check my connections and such. its a Stock Madcatz TE S stick, never modded. I’ve had it for a couple years now with a few hundred hours on it.


Are you sure you didn’t just move the joystick control selection off of D-pad and onto the analog stick settings? I know this will cause lag on the directional inputs, unsure of on the button presses though.


Yes, believe it or not, the stick had the same issue with both d-pad and analog


If you know someone with a 360, try it on their console. If the problem persists, try replacing the usb cable. Worst case, replace the pcb.
