I know the SE sticks have a washer in them that scrapes on the PCB. I’ve opened mine up and I can see that the washer is scraping. I’ve only used mine for a single night, and I don’t want to destroy it by playing with it. I’m planning on modding it with a new joystick, but I don’t know much about stick modding.
If I put a new stick in there, will that stick come with a replacement PCB? I was planning on just using my stick until it ate itself and then replacing the stick and buttons, but if replacing the stick won’t fix the problem, I’m just going to hold off on using it at all. I don’t want to use it until it breaks and have no way of fixing it.
I’ve gone through several threads about the stick, and the answer seems to be yes, but no one answers the question directly. Could someone with more knowledge comment?
