    • These are the solder connections that will need to be desoldered. Since the board is upside down, left will become right.

    • Use a desoldering wick and flux to melt and remove the solder

    • This may take a bit of practice since all the solder will have to be removed. It does help to pull a bit on the joystick while melting the solder and using the wick.

    • Once all the contacts are desoldered, the old joystick can be removed.

    • Check that all the holes are cleared of old solder. Hypodermic needles as well as very small drill bits can be used to clear the holes.

    • Insert the new joystick into the circuit board. Make sure it is properly seated and that all the contacts line up with the holes in the circuit board.

I just tried to remove both joystick and replaced them but unfortunately only one joystick works and that one that works it's stuck on and only moves in one direction.

I've not been able to actually get the solder out, would love any suggestions or tips.

James Napoli - Replica

send me a couple of pictures on what your repair looks like thus far. Send them to my email. Click on my username and my email address is on my profile. Let's see what you got so far.

This is a very difficult repair, what this guy didn't mention is you need a very expensive solder station with an electric solder sucker. The solder needs removing and it's nearly impossible without damaging the tracking.

You definitely need some soldering experience but the repairability is not that difficult. The soldering points are big enough for any cheap ($40) soldering iron can get too. As for removing them, it helps to use flux and also a soldering wick to absorb all the old solder. It is not easy but not the most difficult repair. P.S you do not need the expensive soldering stating with hot air etcetera. This works perfectly as it get hot beyond the required point to melt the solder
