Introduzione

The audio port on your Xbox Controller could have connection issues with audio devices or not provide any sound at all. If this is occurring it might be necessary to replace the 3.5 mm audio port. This guide will teach you how to access and remove the 3.5 mm audio port on your Xbox One Wireless Controller Model 1708.

  1. Slide the battery cover toward the top of the controller to remove it. Lift up  the batteries or the battery pack from the battery compartment.
    • Slide the battery cover toward the top of the controller to remove it.

    • Lift up the batteries or the battery pack from the battery compartment.

  2. Insert a plastic opening tool into the top seam, and  gently work the opening tool to the bottom of the controller. Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.
    • Insert a plastic opening tool into the top seam, and gently work the opening tool to the bottom of the controller.

    • Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.

    • Repeat this process for the second side plate.

    Only use a pry tool! The vibration motor wires are exposed and directly accessible from the side when opening. I attempted to open it with a small knife, expecting to be able to gently pry the clips open, accidentally sliced through my right motor’s wires.

    Not a sharp of course.

  3. Gently peel the battery label  or punch a hole in the center of the sticker in the battery compartment to reveal the hidden screw.
    • Gently peel the battery label or punch a hole in the center of the sticker in the battery compartment to reveal the hidden screw.

    • Remove the five 9mm torx-9 security screws from the back of the controller.

    Torx-8 security bits work as well.

    Torx 8 or 9 wasn’t working. I used 2.0 minus screwdriver

    The 2.0 minus worked for me as well.

  6. Turn the controller face down and gently lift the rear plate.
    • Turn the controller face down and gently lift the rear plate.

    Reassembly: When placing the back cover on: notice that the battery terminals need to slide inside the cover first. Then compress the triggers slightly, Then the cover will be aligned correctly. Then add the front cover and add screws so it doesn’t come undone.

  7. Turn the device over and remove the directional pad by gently pulling it away from the controller.
    • Turn the device over and remove the directional pad by gently pulling it away from the controller.

    It needs to be made a little clearer that the thin metal retaining ring needs to be unclipped before pulling on the D-pad. A small, flatbladed screwdriver did it nicely for me.

  8. Pull the joysticks off of the controller.
    • Pull the joysticks off of the controller.

    Are the joystick potentiometers soldered to the mother board or just push fit, this guide doesn’t mention soldering so I’m assuming the latter?

    Can you get genuine replacement joystick potentiometers as I’ve only seen cheap eBay type ones?

  9. If the rumble motors fall out of frame, the wires may disconnect from the motherboard . The wires will have to be soldered to reattach the motor.
    • If the rumble motors fall out of frame, the wires may disconnect from the motherboard . The wires will have to be soldered to reattach the motor.

    • Turn the device over and remove the two 70mm torx-6 screws in the bottom left and right corners.

    What if you don’t care about the rumble motors (always turn that feature off anyway), can I just leave them unattached?

  10. Firmly grasp the top and bottom motherboards in opposite hands, then gently pull them apart.
    • Firmly grasp the top and bottom motherboards in opposite hands, then gently pull them apart.

    • The top motherboard is still connected to the bottom motherboard. To fully separate the top motherboard, you will need to use a soldering iron.

    Soldering is not necessary for separation as on the top motherboard it uses a small connector commonly used in wireless assemblies for antennas. Simply pop it of using any prying tool or just your hand but make sure it is the side that has a gold or brassy finish and not a solder joint.

    Hey Wyatt,

    Thanks for the feedback. I was on the team that authored this guide. I did not work on this specific guide so I am not familiar with this specific connector. I will follow up with iFixIt and check this issue. Thanks for the comment!

    Dylan Gross -

    Wyatt is correct that the black wire in the center can be removed from the top motherboard, but it doesn’t do any good to do so as there are two other sets of wires (grey and black twisted pairs leading to the left and right trigger) preventing you from removing the bottom motherboard entirely. These wires are visible in the pictures of this guide.

    Frank Buccella - Replica

    I can further confirm this as I have just pulled one apart. No soldering iron required.

    What's is the name of the part for wireless on the controller

    justin edge - Replica

    You'll see..

    Kajus Slekys -

    In my controller that black cable (the antenna like) was separated form the board is there any way to solder it again (the socket is still conected to plug)

    Dominik Gałczyński - Replica

    I have the same problem. It popped off the board when firm pressure was applied to reconnect the wire after a repair. I'm going to attempt to apply a small bead of solder to the part that popped off, press it in place, and then heat the connector with my iron. But I am not hopeful at all. It's tight, really tight, and if it works it will be through luck alone.

    Michael Broder -

    Any luck? Theres no pad to get the solder to stick to on mine. Im assuming it is the j1 connection. Any idea what this wire is for?

    Matt Gribbin -

    Can someone help to find out the actual name of RF connector type?

    It’s IPEX 4 connector, i've ordered bunch on chinese site and replaced mine. It was hard but doable.

    Hi yellow tape on board what

    Mohsen Heidary - Replica

    How does the black wire reconnect? And is it necessary?

Where do I get a replacement audio port?

cory steers - Replica

Hey Cory,

Sorry, didn’t realize that the part wouldn’t get listed for the guide. I looked around a bit and I would say that it seems the best place to pick these up is ebay.

I found one on there from a reputable seller for $3:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Repair-Part-3-5...

The seller seems to sell a good amount of these.

Hope that helps!

Dylan Gross -

Anyone know the pin out for this part? I want to just hard wire in a female 3.5mm jack - the way they built this controller is just bad design.

emb - Replica

u can get these on Amazon. i ordered a 3-pack of replacement audio jacks that came with the two security screw drivers and a pry tool. $12 free shipping.

Kaladin - Replica

I removed the 3.5mm jack, cleaned the contacts with a fibre glass contact cleaning brush, and then cleaned both the audio connector and the gold plated PCB pads with IPA, reassembled, and everything worked perfectly. Thanks for the guide, it’s boarder line perfect ;-)

Paul Hough - Replica

so is the port not soldered onto the board? i have two new controllers my kids purchased that are having issues with the audio port and wonder if the connection is just lose, if it isn’t soldered into place.
