Introduction

If you need to reinstall a new joystick unit, access the daughterboard with this guide. Since the daughterboard communicates with the motherboard, you can also replace the daughterboard if your controller does not carry out its functions properly. For this guide, you will need a plastic opening tool and a Phillips #0 screwdriver head. You will not need to do any difficult steps, but open the ZIF connectors carefully.

Orient your controller so that the black ring is on the bottom and the buttons are facing away from yourself. Place your thumb on the small arrow that is on the controller's battery cover and firmly push upwards. Slide the cover off and separate it from the controller.
