Problems and Solutions[edit | edit source]

Problem Solution

Software does not detect full extension of joystick, only part way
Analog stick difting, or jumping around

  • There are four pots. (two for each analogue), they should be cleaned first and if they are used up, then replaced, the whole analog stick with the mechanism can be changed or only the pots. The mechanism is special for the Elite series 2, but pots are the same as other versions.
  • These pots will likely not center properly after replacement, you have to rotate them before soldering them in the correct center position, on PCBs without plated through holes you can bend over the pins to make this easier. In extreme cases you will need to shave the corner locating pegs.

RB or LB is only registering clicks when certain parts of the bumper are pressed or when the button is pressed with too much force.

  • Replace the RB or LB switch on the blue board.

RB or LB is sometimes registering clicks fine, sometimes is held down or sometimes does not register clicks at all.

  • Most likely the actual switches are working fine. Replace the chip marked "NXP L16A" (Full name: PCAL6416AHF) on the blue board.
