i’ve been searching as many forums as possible but i can not seem to find an adequate trouble shooting guide for mishaps that could occur during a mayflash mod.
anyway, i just attempted my first mod ever and i purchased a mayflash for the purpose. my dad is a mechanical engineer with plenty of experience with electronics and power tools, so he helped me out.
we managed to remove the built in board for the stock buttons, as well as the buttons and the stick as well. we were able to properly solder all the wiring correctly, using a daisy chain for the ground and the wiring harness that came with the JLF. we used a tester on all the connections and everything was working perfectly.
however, whenever we stuck the usb cord into my computer, it wouldn’t register at all. we checked the wiring again, nothing lose at all. the second time we did it, the pcb started heating up and it burned my old man’s hands. i’m pretty sure that the pcb itself is now fried.
i contacted mayflash about buying a spare pcb and they sent me to an australian site where they apparently carry the spare pcb for the mayflash universal stick. i’m still waiting on a reply.
my question is simply what i need to do next? what could have gone wrong with the pcb in the first place and what should i do in the future to get it working properly? i have pictures that i could post if anyone is interested. i’m more or less a tech noob, so i’m pretty discouraged by this first attempt but i’m not giving up.
any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
