Hey Daniel! Thank you very much for this tutorial.

May I ask you, do you know the part code of this specific board or where I can find it online?? My pro controller d-pad came malfunctioning from factory and I think I’ll challenge myself to try and buy a new one to replace it.

I broke the locking tab on the ZIF connector what can I do?

Jonathan Martinez - Réponse

I’ve been looking myself and can’t find any replacement button board to buy - just asking again if anyone knows how to find or where to buy one?

Brandon Green - Réponse

if anyone else is reading this article... I easily found a nice set of replacement buttons that fit well on zedlabz. they're made in china and they are good quality rigid plastic with pleasant texturizing so they are easy to grip and press. happy fixing!
