I have a Mad Catz TE Round 1 Xbox fight stick dual modded with a Chimp PCB for PS3.
I was at a tournament last Thursday where we were using both Xbox and PS3 for different games.
On the Xbox systems my stick worked perfect, but when I switched to the PS3 systems the left position on my fight stick wouldn’t work, but when switching back to Xbox it worked fine.
I took it home, where I only have a PS3, to find the left position still not working. I popped it open and jiggled around some wires on the Chimp and it worked fine on the PS3 all night during a 2 hour casual session.
On Saturday I was at a casual meeting where we were using Xbox systems and after about 1 hour of play the jab button went out, not a big deal, has happened before I know how to fix that. Took it home to find the jab button now worked fine on my PS3 system, but my left position was out again. I spent about 30 mins messing with it last night to only be able to get the left position to work for about a minute at a time till it would go out again, without and adjustment to the wires. I then took the stick position solenoid, not sure what that’s called, out to not find and physical problems with it.
Now I’m stuck trying to figure out where the problem is. Is it the left solenoid piece, which I know I can either replace individually, or replace the entire piece. Or is it something with Chimp PCB, which I’m unsure if this is a common issue with those or not. Was the jab button an anomaly or is it also related to this issue. Since I don’t have a Xbox to try it out on I don’t know if the left stick position works on Xbox as it did last Thursday or if the jab button is still inoperable on Xbox as it was last Saturday. I won’t have any opportunities to test it on Xbox til next Saturday at one of our bigger tourneys in Seattle where I need/ want to have it working 100%.
Anyone had similar issues before with this same setup? Anyone have a chain of tests that I can narrow down the issue?
