That is either A or C is held down, can't remember which.

Thanks CJ, I've pressed all the buttons and they seem to respond fine, I just haven't cracked that second one open yet, and, to be honest, wouldn't entirely know what I'm looking for if it wasn't something major. lol

I noticed some of my pro pad reproductions had mushy d-pads and thought this might help others. If you're having d-pad issues in general give it a try. (I modded some into USB controllers so ignore that Raphnet circuit on the far left.)

 

I believe the white ribbon cable that connects the two PCBs applies tension to whichever board was screwed down last and slides it out of alignment. All you have to do is unscrew the brown board and pull it down to the bottom retaining tabs and then screw it back tight.

Yes, I did that a while back and it solved the D-pad mushiness.  Your photo will be very helpful to others!

Does anyone have any problems with the keypad? Neither of my two reset at all when using asterisk and pound / hash. One of them has a problem with one of the numbers...either 4 or 6 I think.

I havent pulled them apart to see if it is an easy fix, but I think I may have lucked out. Any suggestions anyone?

I will contact Starwander ASAP to work out a solution. I would love to do an official review and publish it online plus side by side comparison with the originals but I would like to hold off until this is solved. That aside, they are amazing.

Great post, thank you very much

Hey apparently this is my first post but I've been following these forums for a few years :ahoy:

 

Anyway I was wondering, is anyone able to confirm whether the postage price to the UK includes any customs/taxes? Or is it literally just for postage and I should anticipate a possible extra customs bill?

 

Thanks and hello! :-D

You may get some import fees however they should not be terrible. The shipping charged is just for the actual shipping from the US to UK

Cool thanks, I thought that might be the case and importing anything here seems like chaos at the moment anyway. But I have family in Connecticut so I'll get them shipped there instead and pick them up when I'm over there. Now I have to decide whether to get just 1 or stretch to 2...

You gotta have at least two, 4 would be even better if you ever play multitap games, and 6 would be even smarter in case one or two get stolen or when they sell out and the price rockets!!!!

Go with 8!

Took some time to crack the pro controllers open again tonight, unfortunately I didn't gain any ground, there's no left / up issue on either controller I've noticed, but no matter how I seem to adjust the boards or screws, I can't get them to stop trying to button press themselves.  When I boot up AvP it asks me if I want to erase eeprom or Predator vision keeps shooting on and off, which I believe means the Option, * and # keys are having issues still?  I'm not quite handy enough to know exactly how to fix my issues, but it seems the simple guide above isn't working for me.

Either way I'm not too troubled, but it's back to the ol' three button again.
