Quote from: Edhel on March 07, 2014, 12:25:45 AMYes, it happens with both pcbs I have. Unfortunately I don't have access to a camera that gives sharper images at the moment.
Quote from: Edhel on March 06, 2014, 10:06:12 PMHaving issues with the two I got. Calibrated fine and they work perfectly when I do that. However if I have my n64 powered off for a number of hours, the sticks stop working and I need to calibrate again.Jumper is not inserted, so it can't be resetting to calibration mode and there's no bridging between those two pins. Any idea what else could be causing the pcb to -forget- it's calibration after being powered off for awhile?

Quote from: rengg on March 21, 2014, 04:58:54 AMSide note, I had one of those $10 hong king controllers laying around and I took out the A+B+C's button pad and put it into my original and now I don't have any weak button press issues. The quality of the pads in those controllers are the only good thing about them.

Quote from: micro on April 03, 2014, 03:44:27 AMYeah, that really looks bad... If you look at the previous pages you'll find a video showing how to solder properly. But you clearly lack practice. The first solder job always looks like shit...

Quote from: micro on April 04, 2014, 05:05:06 AMNo, the PCB isn't ruined but the solder joints are so bad that I can't guarantee that the PCB will work. I'd remove all solder with desolder braid and try again. I'd also watch the video again if I were you Also make sure you're using solder with lead and flux.
