Madcatz TE2 Down input not working


#1

The down input for my Madcatz Tournament Edition Round 2 is not working. I thought it’s the microswitch so i bought myself a new sanwa stick which has 4 new microswitches, but that didn’t fix it. Anyone knows what might be causing this problem?

Here’s some pictures.

Is the harness in all the way in the correct orientation?


#3

Yes, i even tried switching it up just to make sure.


#4

How/when did it start happening? Is this the first time you’ve opened the stick up?


#5

Yes, it’s the first time i opened it up. It happened after i left SF5 on for 2 hours in training mode, after i came back the down input wasn’t working.


#6

It doesn’t work at all? Have you tested the stick on other platforms like PC, PS3, etc.?


#7

Just the down input. Sorry forgot to mention i tested it on ps3 and ps4.


#8

Check continuity on the wire with a multimeter.


#9

I don’t have a multimeter… x_x


#10

Just a quick update. Turns out the problem was the broken pcb board, i had to get a new one.


#11

How did you came to that conclusion?


#12

PS3 TE Round 2, weird :s


#13

By replacing literally everything inside the box.


#14

Was this TE2 modded or completely stock? If it was stock why didn’t you just RMA it?


#15

Warranty period ended long time ago. It’s a ps3 stick.
