After one of my two TE sticks ceased to be recognized by my PS3 I called Mad Catz and was sent a replacement USB cable and board. After soldering the cable to the board, hooking up the pins, and putting everything back together, I fired up the PS3 and was relieved to find it recognized again. However, after testing all the buttons and stick in practice mode, I thought I was in the clear until I realized the home button didn't function and the turbos (though I never use them) didn't either. The switches for the LS DP RS do work, however. I thought it might be because of dirty contacts on the board, so I opened it back up and cleaned them with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Upon loading SF4 now, however, the menu with "quit game, turn off system, etc." comes up automatically every time and I am unable to back out of it (the home button still doesn't work). The stick works fine, letting me scroll up and down to choose the options, but I cannot choose one nor exit this menu; all of the buttons cease to function now at this point. If anyone can tell me what the problem might be and it leads me to a fully working stick, I'll send you $5 Paypal as a gift. Anxiously awaiting any advice. Thanks.
