I have the Madcatz MvC stick (xbox 360). It has quite a few functional and cosmetic mods: Seimitsu buttons, 8 way gate, Seimitsu spring, ball top, plexi, dust washer, and art.
Before I modded it and randomly after, there has been a problem with the buttons just dying in the middle of playing. Unplugging it and replugging it in resumes normal functionality. It is seemingly random. I can play for twelve hours straight without an issue or it could fault anywhere within ten minutes to several hours of playing.
I called Madcatz after it happened a few times and they seem to have known about the issue. Even though it was out of warranty and modded, they agreed to fix it for no cost if I had the receipt. Problem was that it was a Christmas gift from the woman and she didnt hold onto the receipt for that 8 months.
The thing sort of has sentimental value. Like a good worn in baseball glove. So I don’t just want to junk it and buy another one. I can only assume that the problems are a fault with the PCB.
What options are out there for a replacement? I tried doing a basic search for replacement or after market PCBs and didnt come up with much. I could really use some names, model numbers, and link to the shop where I could get one. Some sort of guide on how to do the swap it out would be handy also if anyone knows of one on Shoryuken or elsewhere.
Thanks in advance.
