i’m having a problem with my MadCatz SSFIV TE stick, and i’m hoping somebody here can help me.
you know how sometimes you get some static electricity buildup on you from your clothes or whatever? and when you touch certain things you get that little shock? well, i was using my stick the other day, and i shocked my stick with static. it was around the area where the turbo controls and PS3 dashboard buttons are. when it happened, my stick stopped working correctly. whenever i plug it in now and try to use the joystick, all it does is scroll down at a fast pace. for example, i just plugged it in while i was on my friends list. without even touching the stick, it goes FLYING down my friends list. if i try to move it an any direction, i get nothing.
that’s the only problem with it, though. the buttons all work fine, the turbo and PS3 dashboard buttons work, etc. but the stick is useless, and it will only scroll down by itself when i plug it in. it’s like that little static shock short circuited something inside. i actually opened up the stick earlier and unplugged the wire connected to the joystick and plugged it back in. didn’t help anything.
so, does anyone have an idea what the problem might be and how i can fix it? i can’t afford to by a new stick right now, so i’m hoping it’s something that can be fixed.
