recently i squashed my ps3 controller in my hands while playing a round of street fighter 4 online…
the shell got crushed but the pcb doesn’t look damaged so i thought i’d solder some wires on top of it and turn it into a fight stick.
on the backside of the controller is noted “wireless controller” with the model number: CECHZC2E
this model doesn’t have the long connector where all the buttons and grounds come together like for example this one (picture on the upper right): http://www.slagcoin.com/joystick/pcb_diagrams/ps3_diagram2.jpg
instead it looks like this (i damaged mine while trying to solder on something that apparently can’t be soldered on):
since that attempt failed i thought i could solder the wires directly on the respective connections of the pcb BUT i can’t find a diagram for this model that explains which solder point is for which button or ground… on slagcoin.com i only found 2 different diagrams for ps3 controllers and both seem different to mine. now i wonder how to find out where to solder my wires for which button and ground??
here is the picture of my ps3 controller:
