TE1 Fightstick Cord Compartment Warped


#1

Hi Everyone,

Trying to see if anyone has had the same problem with their fightstick’s USB cord compartment warping? Not sure what happened but it’s been like this for a while. Any idea of using something to push it back out? Thanks


#2

Use a flamethrower.
I can barely see the problem anyway. Does the compartment work and does the cord fit in and does the door close?


#3

I am assuming you mean a blow torch and not a flamethrower

This is a flame thrower

This is a blow torch.

Ether way they would burn the plastic.

Heat gun on a low setting or a hairdryer on high would be more appropriate.

The problem is that the door can’t close all the way. It sticks out a bit so I can’t keep it flush against anything. Just a minor annoyance.


#5

Not much I can say, you have to find a way to bend it without it flexing back.
You can use the heat approach, but unless you know what you are doing it’s less than ideal.

I was joking about the flame thrower.
Yes I originally was thinking of “blow torch” but thought of something even more outlandish, as I’ve had too much bad experience with trying to “un-warp” plastic abs by flexing it the other way and having stuff break. Best solution is prevention basically.

Looking at that picture again, I really don’t know how you can reverse that bending, now that I notice it :frowning:
