Hi, do you know where I can get a new motherboard? I bought my controller second hand and after several months it stoppedworking…. when I took it apart the connection at the bottom has been removed and two wires soldered in place but it’s so small I can’t do it again so I need a new motherboard

thanks

I am looking for the connetor at step 10. The top of the connector is broken (fail quality assurence). I am not interrested to purchase a new controler at 200$ because of a 2 cents connector.

Thank you
