Introduzione

If your Xbox One controller has LT/RT issues (or needs manual adjustment), the issue may be due to the magnets. Use this guide to take the controller apart and re-secure the magnets.

Guide warnings

  • TO AVOID MELTING THE PLASTIC FRAME WHEN INSTALLING HEATSHRINK TUBING, ADJUST THE LIGHTER/TORCH TO THE LOWEST RELIABLE IGNITION POINT.
    • If you use a butane torch, test the setting you are going to use on something you do not mind damaging BEFORE working on the controller. Use ABS to practice.
    • Holding the flame once the heatshrink seals may damage the controller frame.
  • This is a final solution. Be prepared to write the controller off if this does not fix the problem or makes it worse.
  • This fix is specific to Model 1537/1697 controllers.
  • This procedure WILL VOID ANY PRESENT WARRANTY. Make sure the warranty is expired if you care about preserving it!
    • My controller is 17 months old. It is long out of warranty.

Guide notes

  • This does not apply to Model 1708 controllers. These controllers have fewer problems.
  • If you misalign the magnets, you may need a controller frame. Use caution when applying glue.
    • Remove the batteries from your controller (if installed). If you do not have a TR8 screwdriver, the bit can be found in the 64-bit driver kit.

    • Remove the screw under the battery cover label. To do this, puncture the label where it is marked. It is located roughly in the center of the battery bay on the controller.

    • Remove the side trim from the controller, along with the 4 TR8 screws. Set the trim and screws aside somewhere safe.

    • With the screws removed from the back, flip the controller to the front. Remove the front plastic cover.

    • With the front plastic cover removed, remove the back shell. A plastic pry tool can be used if it is easier.

    • Remove the shell once the battery tabs are released.

    • Remove the power button cover from the controller. If the LB/RB assembly is separate, remove this next. A plastic pry tool can be used.

    • Remove the wireless sync button. Place this on a bright surface to avoid misplacement.

    • Repair one trigger at a time!

    • Before cutting the heatshrink, make 2 alignment marks (non-crossing).

    • After making alignment marks, cut the old heatshrink off using a utility knife.

    • Using the old heatshrink as a reference, cut two new pieces.

  1. Incorrect magnet alignment will result in LT/RT activation without human input. After cutting the heatshrink tubing, do a test alignment before applying glue. These controllers use double sided tape from the factory. Note the dimple side and clean the magnet and frame. Use Goo Gone if the residue is difficult to clean.

    • Once the parts are reasonably clean, do a test alignment and apply tape for final installation.

  2. A controller frame may be required if done incorrectly. Verify the alignment before adding glue! After verifying the alignment is correct, add glue to the controller. Let it cure for 24 hours.

    • Soft flame lighters may melt the plastic. A blue flame lighter or torch is recommended.

    • Once the glue cures, add new heatshrink tubing.
