    Looks like I found a fix for neo cd pads with bad switches

    If someone has a pad with bad switches , I need a guinea pig.

    We got a couple fixed already but I want one more to make sure I got it exactly right.

    The deal is: cover the shipping both ways. I'll fix it for nothing. You get a proper working pad again. No strings attached .


    Someone want to help a brother out?

    Word- gohan is sending me one that he says is beyond help. So we will see. Shoot me a pm when you find it- I got enough parts on hand for a couple more. Be happy to help you out.

    I remember seeing a thread about preventing the wearing out of the pad here a while back, but can't find it.

    From what I remember, that thread was basically cleaning/lubricating the switches as preventative maintenance. This is a real fix.

    This thread?

    It boils down to getting new membranes for the controllers.

    Did anyone ever find a stash of them that they are willing to sell on?

    It seems such a shame to buy another pad to cannibalise for a working switch (with a questionable life span).

    this is actual faulty hardware replacement. its not lube or cannibalizing other controllers/ hardware.

    Putting this on hold for a minute while i collect the controllers being sent to me. Thanks for volunteering guys! Back soon with results.

    Dont those use proprietary or hard to find micro switches? I imagine you found a suitable replacement or your opening the micro switch and refurbishing it? But ofc you dont have to disclose your trade secrets.

    Glad that these can get a second chance at life again though.

    Good work
