I’ve been meaning to sign up here for a while now, but seeing this thread resembles a similar situation to mine.
I got my round 2 TE stick last Friday, all was good for the first hour and a half that I used it. Turned off my PS3 and went downstairs, when i returned to play on it later the home button refused to work.
Tried unplugging it, using the other usb port and turning the console on and off. Nothing rectified the problem, as the home button doesn’t work you can’t assign the stick to the console making it nothing more than an expensive albeit pretty paper weight.
I have sent it back to Amazon and requested a replacement which should hopefully be here tomorrow, seeing this post makes me think that Amazon uk may well have a bad batch of arcade sticks (I hope not, as I really like the thing and just want a working one)
Sorry for rambling on my first post, but just wanted others to know that the original poster doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident in regards to TE round 2’s that are from amazon in the u.k.
