First and foremost, it may just be easiest to contact madcatz for a replacement. If you have only had it for about a month, then it’s still under warranty. That’d be the best option unless if you really want to fix it yourself. Contacting customer support by phone instead of email tends to yield the best results
The problem is likely one of these:
1)Your 5 pin connector is going haywire. To test this, open it up and unplug the little connecter to the joystick. If it’s still going right after you unplug it from the joystick, unplug that same wire from the other end, from the PCB (Printed Circuit Board). If it stops, it’s likely that your connector is shorting out, and it’d be best to order this nice replacement one: JLF-TE Harness for MadCatz FightSticks
2)Joystick’s TP-MA PCB is going bad or the microswitch is stuck in the closed position. If when you unplug it from the joystick, and the right stops firing (but not the PCB), then the joystick is likely to blame. The way to fix this is to either replace the joystick, or just the TP-MA PCB (Which isn’t hard to do). Note that there is a slim chance that BOTH the connector and joystick are toast, and without a multimeter, it’s hard to tell if they are both broken without fixing one to find that the other is broken, too.
3)PCB problem (least likely), somewhere in that mess, something caused a short circuit in the wiring or the PCB, and this is probably a worst-case scenario. It just means a ground has shorted with the right direction (This doesn’t hurt anything, it just causes the PCB stuck sending out right). It is probably fixable, but may require a bit more technical knowledge to fix. This would be the case only if you unplug the harness from BOTH sides and that the thing still sends out Right. This is why it would be best to contact madcatz, because running into this would probably be a very bad thing if you’ve not got a bit of technical know-how
Here’s what to do if you want to try it yourself. Just open up the TE, then unplug the five-pin connector from the joystick. Plug it in to see if it continues to fire out right. If it does, unplug the connector from the PCB. Then try to figure out the problem from above.
