So after dropping it too many times I decided to check what was wrong with my stick and opened it up. One of the grounds disconnected and the base of the sanwa knock off stick broke.
Now all I wanted to do is somehow rewire/switch the R1 and R2 buttons to where they are supposed to be. For some reason this stick has the L1/L2 button placement switched.
So now this is what I have:
I see those two tabs that should allow me to remove that pcb. Problem is when I try to pry it out it feels like something is still holding it in place. I made it this far, so the last thing I want to do is shatter the whole thing.
Here is what it looks like from the top:
Anyone here ever take one of these apart completely? I don’t want to replace the buttons because I actually like them. I just want to make sure the R1/R2 are where they are supposed to be. I believe I got to all of the screws but am scared to use brute force, because some the plastic is really flimsy.
