    all my T8 screws have a clear filling in them, WTF?!?!?!

    Patrick Henry - Replica

    I've never seen that, I can't advise much other than scrapping it out with an xacto knife

    EasyAsABC123 - Replica

    My screws have a tiny metal pin in the center. Looks like I need a TR8 bit, not a T8. This might be what you are mistaking for a clear filling.

    Steve McGinn - Replica

    Thanks it might be TR8 i’ll update the guide

    EasyAsABC123 - Replica

    While a TR8 will work, they’re actually TR9 screws on mine (Model 1698, X912908-004).

    @isbelldl thanks, updated to specify TR9

    • Ribbon Cable

    My connector did not look like this and popping it up broke it

    Amarokstar - Replica

    please post a picture of the connector so we can update this, you also might have a newer revision of the motherboard

    EasyAsABC123 - Replica

    Is there any way to replace that connector bar or maybe an alternative to keeping the contacts down on the ribbon if it’s broken?

    Joe - Replica

    @joe you can try tape, or even hot glue (easy to remove with rubbing alcohol), that might hold it down. I wasn’t able to find the connector but i’m sure if you count the number of pins and measure it you’d be able to locate a replacement connector on something like mouser.

    • Desolder the 4 wires on each side, these control the vibrations and the RT LT

    If you are just replacing the main power board there is no need to desolder at this point. The main power board can be removed with the controller board still in place.

    Hi,

    I would like to know if I could get from you a Motherboard . In case you don' t have it, where could I find one?

    Thank you

    Hi, I have 2 not working controllers (both 1698 and 1708). The 1708 broke the bumper switch, I manage to fix it but as always, postponed. So, can I either swap Xbox One Elite comtroller (1698) into Xbox One (1708) shell/housing or vice versa??

    Or can I mix both motherboard together so I can make one of them working?

    Fitifazrul Rahman - Replica

    It might work…it might damage one of the boards but probably wouldn’t

    I would like to buy a motherboard, can you please stock some up?

    I don’t work for ifixit, I don’t know if they see comments on a private made guide.

    EasyAsABC123 -

    I decided to toss all this stuff in the trash at this point as I am not going to spend +$50 on equipment and replacement parts to fix a $60 controller. But thanks for the educational manual all the same.

    • Be Careful to not lose the sync button

    • Pry the middle section up from the home button side.

    • This will also remove the LB and RB which is a single part

    • Unscrew the 6 Torx (T6) screws

    On the 2nd picture: the D-pad dome switches are covered by a clear plastic film: is possible to remove it/reattach that plastic film? I believe there might be something stuck underneath the dome switches that’s interfering with the d-pad buttons working reliably/consistently. I know I could just replace the daughterboard, but I’m trying to avoid doing that if I can just clean it some how/find a way around it

    This is just tacom tape :), feel free to buy more and replace

So question I’m having troubles with my elite controller every time I go to plug it in and the charging port in the back of the controller it starts to smoke what’s my problem

Dustin Dykstra - Replica

It sounds like it could be a lot of things…

smoke is obvious a dead stop (stop plugging it in until you repair it).

I would first check the charge port and make sure it is firmly attached if it isn’t you can easily replace the usb port. Next it could be the mainboard charging circuit. if it is this…replace the controller is likely the ideal solution.

I was looking to do this mod for fun. Do you have or know where I can get the led part number? A schematic or bom would be nice. Thanks

0805 SMD LED Diode Lights

i bought these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CUG...

EasyAsABC123 -

Thank you. I ordered them so we will see what happens.

Worked like a champ. The original LED was a POS and melted when i applied the heat. I got it cleaned up and change with no other problem. Thanks for the guide.

Awesome I'm glad you had success!
