Hi,

I already replaced the battery, as that was my first guess. But the error persist. I measure the voltage across the battery terminal with the battery connected. The current was measured by soldering wires to the PCB battery connector  and the battery and connecting the multimeter in series.

The controller won't turn on if its just battery. It will only turn on when plugged in through usb. It worked when I first replaced the battery, since it came precharged. But since it emptied and won't charge up again.
If you cant' find solution I think you can add cheap USB Li-Ion charger and connect it to 5V point.
Some like this:

Hopefully the protection circuit in the battery pack has done it's job and that's why it's measuring that now.

That charge circuit in there is a bit of a mess. I started tracing all of that out years ago on the -001 and finally decided it wasn't worth it, as practically every part in there has 0 information on it.

If I were really curious about it though, I'd swap the PMIC, the BD9200 (QFN32) on the other side of the board. The -011 and -020 still use that same BD9200 chip, so it may not be too hard to find one for the swap.

They are probably alright, as the value of them in circuit will not test correctly. On the controller I have here they both measure 101k and 100k while on the board.

The first thing to check would be the battery, as that JDM-001 has been around for awhile now and it's bound to have gone thru at least a few charge cycles.

Not sure where you're checking that charge voltage, as right across the battery terminals, while the USB cable is plugged in, is where that would be done, and if it's measuring 0.5v there then the controller wouldn't even turn on from the battery power alone.

Hi,

my controller (JDM001) does not charge any more. The Playstation always complains about the battery being low and then shuts off the controller. After opening the controller i figured out that the charge voltage is only 0.5V and the current only 16uA. Any idea what component could be defective?

I already checked all 0 Ohm fuses, but non of them were broken. I also have measured the voltages at different probe points.
Results:
green=1.8V
yellow=5.2V
red=3.3V

As those are common logic voltages they should be good, at least as far as I know.

I read in a previous post that the two resistors(blue) should be 150k with 1% tolerance. I measured them at 97k and 104k. Might those be the problem? I do not have any replacements at the moment and want to confirm that those can be the issue before buying new ones (Shipping is 7$ for 2 resistors).



Thanks

The Transistor and it's BE Resistor look like they were never installed to begin with, which makes sense as the one missing Resistor on both boards that I have here is installed there on that board, which would make it act like that Transistor was just on all the time, so no need for it.

Both JDM-030 boards that I have on hand here look like this, but that doesn't mean there is another variation of the -030 that is supposed to be setup like that one you have there.



Thanks a lot!.

My distant customer have dancing touch and he think that he smashed this elements.

At first I thought that places at his pcb are very clear.

Maybe 10 pin ribbon deglued from touch partialy and touch "dancing" :)

Hello.
Will anybody help me to identify 2 SMD elements on JDM-030 near touch button.




thanks in advance

i jump now the connection from resistor to the back of the continuation of the board..now the ds4 charge.  thank you.

no continuity after the resistor(5v)..jump at the back of the mobo.
