Hi @ all,

as in subject, my start button is not working.
opened controller already and cleaned with cleaning alcohol (99,8 %).
after cleaning and reassembling the button works for some minutes. after that it just stops working again.
so there seems to be a problem with solder points or traces anywhere ?
and sorry i got no decent camera to make high res pictures which could be of use.
i looked in this post : http://www.acidmods.com/forum/index.php/topic,34543.0.html
but i really do not know how to test traces.
Any help would be very appreciated. many thanks in advance

post up some pictures of the board and the rubber pad that contacts the pcb board. Itll give us a better picture of what you are dealing with.

i think the rubber pads were ok. i used this guide to repair it already: http://staticint.blogspot.de/2013/02/xbox-360-wireless-controller-start.html
thanks nonetheless. but i will not open it up again, soldering was hard enough :D
