Conclusione

Thank you for using our step by step controller guide. Enjoy your NES games!

If the controller isn’t working after this guide, re-check the soldering points, and redo as necessary. If this still doesn’t fix the controller you may have to get a new wire.

Hi There,

Just wondering if you knew “where” I could purchase a special set of silicone buttons for a wireless Nintendo NES controller? The buttons are sticking and when I remove the cover, the silicone buttons were stripped and no longer functional. I know how to replace all of the parts - just not sure where I can actually find the part that I need.

I am not sure if you know what the “NES wireless controller” looks like “internally” but it has 4 buttons together - not just 2 like the original NES controller. The silicone button assembly looks very similar to the silicone button assembly of the “controller buttons” portion (or the arrows portion that actually allows you to “move” when playing a game.

Any assistance you could provide for me to find the right part to fix my son’s controller would be GREATLY APPRECIATED !!

Thank you

Jeff
