I’ve had my SA for a couple months now and used it sparingly with no problems whatsoever. I bought HD remix for my PS3 and decided to try my SA with it, using a Pelican PS2 / PS3 converter. I’ve never had any problems with this converter, whether it be hooked up to my PS3 or my PC. Anyway, I started to play with my bro, he’s using a Soul Cal Hori stick, and we begin to play. At the character select screen, it tells me that I need to reconnect my controller, even though it had been working just fine right before that. So I disconnect, and reconnect it and start it up. To my surprise, I can’t jump at all, but everything else works, directions and button presses.
I take it to my PS2 and try it there, and still, the Up direction will not work, but everything else will.
This is what I think may be wrong:
My PCB be fried from the converter (which I am now afraid to try with my other joysticks)
Static electricity shorted it out? Is that a possibility?
I am going to open it up this weekend and see whats up, but would anyone have any idea what might’ve happened? Anyone else experienced this problem using their joysticks with this Pelican PS2/PS3 converter?
If it DID short out, what would the best way to go as to fix it? I was going to just replace the whole PCB with new PS2 controller PCB only if I have no other option.
