Is it possible that I broke this joystick ribbon?

I was doing my first ever repair and started with a JoyCon of mine that has severe drift but don't use anymore before I fixed a JoyCon with drift that I do use.

While in the process of swapping the joysticks, I think I pinched my cable because my joystick didn't work when I was testing it.

Here's pictures for reference

Here's how the drifting joystick for reference, in case it's helpful.

The curve in the cable is due to a piece of foam that I think Nintendo added when I sent it to them years ago to help with the connectivity issues it had with the Switch when docked and sat around 6-10 feet away.

So… do you think my replacement is broken?

It was the left one.

Do you think I could get a replacement or would I need to buy a new part? And what should I do with the joysticks that don't work if I don't send them back?


Here's the part : Nintendo Switch Joy-Con/Switch Lite Joystick

I'm assuming you have the tools?


also i would keep the broken part, its cool to see whats in your joy-con


I have the tools, yes. Also, I don't really want two busted joycon laying around in my house so I would rather either keep one or just get rid of both.



Hope your repair is successful
