Modding a HORI EX2

Sup fellow gamers,

Ima nub at this whole forum thing so please bare with me.

I have a Hori EX2 arcade stick that has died on me. I some how with staic shock therapy shocked the stick and since then it has not worked. I have ordered the ever famous mod parts parts for it “SANWA” buttons for replacements and CHERRY micro swiches. Before installing the switches I had lost only the left directional and the A & Y buttons. I have installed the new switches and attempted to test it and I still do not have the left function.

So question is, could the problem be on the PCB or do I just suc at soldering new switches. If you think its the PCB, whats an alternative for the pcb so I can get up and running.

I need help help help help!
