Need help with TE stick problem


#1

one of the directions on the stick stopped registering which is forward (from 1st player side), if i do df or uf it comes out as U or D. Any idea how i can fix this?


#2

Well, one thing to do is to open it up and look at the microswitches, though that sort of problem sounds like it might be an electronic (PCB) issue.


#3

guess il try but not sure if thats gonna help much since i have no idea what im looking for >.< any idea where the problem is specifically? would atleast like to know what i need to replace

The most likely possibilities:
A mechanical problem with the switches in the stick. (This is fixed by replacing parts of the stick.)
A connection problem with the cable that hooks the stick to the PCB . (This is fixed by making sure the cable is well-seated.)
An electronic or component problem on the PCB. (Replacement PCB … not easy to come by for Xbox 360 setups right now.)
