Refreshing my TEstick. could some one tell me what to get?


ok so like i said in another thread i’m afread I damaged my TE stick by slamming my hand on it too hard and it feeling different now.
i went searching and found this
its a shop where i can get the sanwa parts but what parts do i need to get my TE stick perfectly functioning again?

thanks in advance :slight_smile:

use this site if you are in the us

any 30mm buttons will fit either sanwa, semitsu or rollie buttons for the top 8
any 24mm buttons will fit in the back 2 buttons for start n select
if you like the jlf feel you could get a new 1 or better yet just a new spring and you should be good


also if you want a different feel to the jlf buy a round gate from them


You can use any Sanwa or Seimitsu Joystick, but be sure that yours has the 5-pin connector (IE JLF-TP, not JLF-TM. LS-XX-01, not plain LS-XX) unless if you want to hack the connector. You also need the proper mounting plate (Such as LS-56-01, comes with VF mounting plate, must be swapped for MS mounting plate), but most models come with the proper mounting plate.

You can use any 30mm screw-in or snap-in type buttons for the top panel, like ibeatu said. Snap ins generally work easier, though. Sometimes screwing in the nuts can be a hassle, Sanwa nuts don’t work well with the TE’s Vewlix layout.

While you’re at it, you may want to consider the LizardLick harness for the joystick: They’re more secure than the original harness (held in by glue that won’t exist once you remove it from the original JLF), and can’t be inserted in upside-down, like the original harness. It can cause problems if you switch to a Seimitsu stick, as they have their harness upside-down, and if you forget to flip the connector, only the DOWN direction will work, same deal if you put in upside-down on a Sanwa stick by accident. If you don’t want it, you don’t really need it, but I just find them to be of much higher quality than the original harness, and I think they’re a great piece if you’re swapping joysticks on a TE.

While you’re swapping, you may want to consider different artwork? I mean, if you’re going to be removing the buttons and joystick, anyways, all you have to do is peel the art off and put new art on, and with a plexi cover, you’re good to go.
