I’m new here, hi all!
That being said, recently my Datel Arcade Pro started to become faulty by randomly ignoring button input from (especially) the lower-left buttons, sometimes the upper as well. After some looking around online, it became clear that stock buttons were garbage and that I was better off with quality Sanwa/Seimitsu parts.
So instead of buying a new stick, I bought a set of Sanwa buttons and the JFL joystick and followed a similar stick’s guide (Mayflash) on YouTube to mod this one instead. After some hours of scraping, cutting, and soldering I got all parts in fine but for some reason the 2/X/A button doesn’t work! All other buttons and the JFL joystick work fine (like a breeze of silk compared to the stock parts, as expected).
I checked all buttons/contacts of the PCB with a multimeter to see if inputs are received and none overlap, and they’re all fine. Which probably means the problem lies somewhere further in the PCB circuit.
Could anyone with experience on this particular stick clarify if this means the PCB broke and I’d need a replacement?
Or could there be anything else causing this problem?
For reference, here’s the modded stick I’m talking about:
