SNES D-PAD Issues


#1

I went ahead and cleaned the SNES Controller out to make sure it wasn’t any dirt effecting the d-pad but the d-pad is losing its clickyness its really soft and loose, Does anyone have idea why and how to fix it?


#2

really, yours is clicky? mine was always spongy. what did you clean it with?


#3

Well it was never super clicky but it wasn’t super spongy


#4

Gotca. I will have to wait like you to see what others say aswell. I have ideas but they are not great so i rather see if someone else can nail your answer for you sir. sorry. I am curious too. i will crack mine open when i get home to see and verify my thoughts


#5

Why not just say your thoughts and i can verify them ._.

The rubber pad is just old and worn out. Trying to fix them is like trying to fix bald tires. Replace them or the entire pad.

I just need the d-pad one, Cause i mean for that price, I can just buy another controller

you can always do a full fledge mod and put tactile switches instead of replacing the rubber part.

they sit at about the same height and you’ll having nothing but a sweet ‘CLICK’ everything you press the dpad. :tup:

hmmmm. i’m going to go see if i can find an old snes pad now.
