这个拆解是不是维修指南。 要维修你的的Steam Controller,请使用我们的维修手册

  1. 我们先来看看蒸汽手柄的相关参数: 高精度震动反馈 双触控板
    • 我们先来看看蒸汽手柄的相关参数:

    • 高精度震动反馈

    • 双触控板

    • 通过 Micro-USB 连接的 USB 2.0 接口

    • 6轴组合的陀螺仪-加速度传感器

    • 具有10°行程的两段式扳机,磁通量传感器,触摸开关

    • 一对可更换的AA电池将提供最多80小时的续航

    • 5米的无线连接范围

  2. 为了对比,我们将一个 Xbox One 手柄放在 Steam 手柄旁边。 这两个手柄都使用相同的 AB-XY 按键布局,但是因为 Steam 手柄拥有一对电容触摸板,所以它占用的空间更大。 后盖是卡扣设计,无需工具即可拆下,可以看到型号:1001。

    • 到目前为止,我们只用了手和一把螺丝刀就拆开了手柄。这在我们心目中已经打了高分。

    I bought mine about 10 months ago and it does not have those additional srews under the paddle/battery cover. After unscrewing those 4 Torx on the handles I cannot remove the bottom of the cover without having to worry - it feels as if it rather breaks than become loose. Especially the areas under the usb port and around the release slider of the paddle do not seem to become loose at all. It seems as if they made minor changes to the design. Mine became a bit sticky while carrying it around and the steam button would get stuck when pressed. I wanted to clean the buttons but I really worry to break the thing. It is insanely tight even with those 4 Torx removed.

    The info decal under the rear cover is extremely heavy-duty and makes it hard to see where the screws are, but rub your fingernail in the three spots shown. You should begin to see the indentations of the screw wells underneath the decal. Then, punch through the decal to access the screws.

    Those two top T6 screws are too deep for my screwdriver to reach, I have the 64-bit set from ifixit. Kind of a shame..

    • 这种设计移除了易坏的组件,延长了 Steam 手柄的使用寿命,并为用户提供了选择:一次性电池或可充电电池。地球的未来(确切地)掌握在你的手里。

    They mention battery eject levers, how do you normally hit these levers to get the batteries out? Or do you just push them down and the levers are on a spring?

    Zachary Hill - 回复

    You press them up from the bottom. There are arrows below the release levers that should show what I mean.

  6. 注意!将主板从外壳中取出后,你会发现一对连接触摸板的排线隐藏在电路板的下边。 维修人员注意:不取下这些排线就移除主板会明显增加维修难度。 我们从来都不是这种危险的布线方法的粉丝,但是这并不是我们所见过的最糟糕的情况。

  7. 我们终于拿出了我们最喜欢的工具,把触摸板从支架后面撬开。这次,我们使用了Pro Tech Toolkit里的一个塑料撬棒。 触摸板的子板上有排线接口,并焊有提供触觉回馈的装置,这使得触摸板模块有点冗余。 整个组件是由Cirque提供的触摸板解决方案,可能是GlidePoint TM040040 。

    • 两段式扳机可以拆解成两部分:

    • 第一部分是扳机进行线性平滑运动的模块。它使用磁通量传感器,基于时间变化来测量扳机的位置和按压速度。

    • 第二部分是扳机的物理按键,实际上是按压了一个主板上的按键。

    • 爆头!

    The triggers can actually be further disassembled- there is a small screw hidden underneath that separates the trigger from the actual mechanical frame. This means that all external faces of the controller can be separated from mechanical or electrical components, which will make Counter Strike-esque paint jobs a breeze!

  9. 主板是玻璃纤维材质,上面有一些电子元件。我们尽可能确定了: NXP LPC11U37F 32位 ARM Cortex-M0 微处理器
    • 主板是玻璃纤维材质,上面有一些电子元件。我们尽可能确定了:

    • Nordic Semiconductor 的 nRF51822 蓝牙和2.4GHz专用芯片

    • Invensense 的 MPU-6500 六轴 (重力 + 加速度) 微型动作追踪设备

    It's worth noting that there are spots for Tag Connect connectors for interfacing with the wireless radio chip and the main controller. The radio's is marked radio right underneath it, and the main controller's is marked debug, and is down to the left. Hopefully valve releases a more open source firmware soon so we can have the open controller of our dreams!

  10. Steam 手柄的可修复性评分:8/10(10为最易修理) 唯一发现的粘合剂是在触控板那里。其他的所有机械连接均使用了螺丝。
    • Steam 手柄的可修复性评分:8/10(10为最易修理)

    • 唯一发现的粘合剂是在触控板那里。其他的所有机械连接均使用了螺丝。

    • 整个手柄相对较模块化的设计意味着更换一个部件会很轻松。

    • 尽管我们总是说螺丝比胶水好,但是这个手柄中使用了非磁性螺丝,而且很容易放错位置。

    • 最易坏的组件 - 摇杆是直接焊在主板上的。

    The screws are non-magnetic so they don't interfere with the magnetic flux sensor.

Does swapping the touchpads and reconnecting them work?

The Reloader - 回复

In theory yes in practice no, if you swap them you will end up with an off angle dpad. shape almost like an X Same goes for A B X Y, I tried to do the original nintendo layout but they where angled so it did not work well.

Qlum Wyrfex -

It doesn't work in theory or in practice. I mean it can work. But the effects wouldn't be what you would think. You would actually have to mod the chassis itself which takes patience and artistic craftsmanship. But it can be done just not as easy as one would think. I tried this last night. No cigar. You can always attempt a cross wire and play without the top chassis but it would be uncomfortable and exposed.

Jay Martinez -

So the thumbstick potentiometer is soldered, that's normal, but can the stick itself be replaced? My DS4 has 3rd party metal sticks.

Frank Zhao - 回复

I'd like to know this as well, if I get one of these I'd want to replace it with an Xbox One thumbstick if possible.

Evil Robot -

Yes, actually, I think the XBOne's analog sticks can be used as drop in replacements, I've seen one person replace it with an anodized steel stick, so it can be done.

Might want to check out the steam controler subreddit (/r/steamcontroller) and the steam controller mods subreddit (/r/steamcontrollermods)

Chris DeJoseph -

Well yeah? Anything that is soldered can be unsoldered with a soldering wick and iron. Its roughly the same size. So it should fit through the plastic case. I may be wrong though. It can definitely be replaced though the only problem would be how big the hole in the case is. If it's big enough you should be fine. If not, just do what you do and play without the case. I seen some people do this, you would need to modify everything to make it comfortable though. Personally I think the sticks are fine. Its probably the thumb pad itself you don't like. THAT is easily replaceable, just carefully rip one off an x bone then carefully hot glue it to the top

Jay Martinez -

How big are ds4 thumb sticks, pretty small right? If so. It can be done. Well the ds4 sticks would fit onto the steam Controller, but.vice versa? Maybe not.. the steam stick is small but is it that small? Idk. But they ARe third party like you said. So you should definitely try it and let us know. I'd try it but I don't have a DS. You ARE talking about the Nintendo ds right? Lol

Jay Martinez -

I'm surprised you guys didn't post the exploded diagram of the controller that you can find on the inside of the retail box! From the looks of it, it appears to be fairly accurate.

DogGunn - 回复

My retail box didn't have one, then again my controller is from the first batch of those produced. I noticed a few differences between mine and theirs. I think they either got an earlu proto type or from a later more recent batch

Jay Martinez -

Those 2 pads on the back of the PCB look like "connections" for a yet to be announced battery-pack, or "play and charge kit"

Any confirmation? I don't want to open mine yet...

What is the polarity of these? I suspect the right one would be +5V and the one on the left to be GND - That would make sense because of how the USB connector is laid out

Alia5 - 回复

Measured the pads. Both pads are 0 Ohm to GND.

hornfeldt -

I think that would be interesting to have a plastic covering similar to the xbox one design but with the touch pad sensors included and the feedback motor.

sirdre - 回复

That IS what the steam Controller is. Actually the case.is superior to the x bone controller. Its handles bend in a way that makes it more comfortable. But the layout is essentially the same. Keep in mind this controller isn't really for fps games. Keep a keyboard and mouse for fps but the steam Controller is good for most anything else. I use it for third person shooters and turn based games.

Jay Martinez -

I'm considering a tear-down of mine I just got- I think one of this would look FRESH with a custom paintjob. Especially since (if I read it correctly) I won't have to deal with the hard parts of this controller if I just want to paint the casing- not even the touchpads, just the outer casing.

notMateo - 回复

You should still take it apart. Remove the chassis (plastic covering) and separate the innards including buttons and thumbtack. Anything can be easily soldered or snapped back. Don't risk getting pain on your PCB you will regret it. It should be fairly easy if you use the right paint. There is paint specifically for plastic. Get that, you can find it at any craft store. I'm doing the same soon, I scratched the original paint on accident during a removal procedure.

Jay Martinez -

ATTENTION modders: this guide is perfect but has one is single flaw. It seems most stram controllers have hidden screws on the back panel. This guide doesn't mention they are hidden. But they are exactly where the guide says they are. When you open the panel it looks like they are not there. But you can feel them under the sticker. Cut a hole with a box cutter, its just really thick paper, and you will find the three screws. You can even feel em with your hand if you press down your finger hard enough, it will leave an indent where to cut. All the screws are size t6. They can be unlocked with torque 6 security screwdrivers.

Jay Martinez -

My left touchpad makes a REALLY loud noise when I press it, like something isn't working right. What part could be causing this and how hard is it to fix? A little percussive maintenance temporarily fixes it but I'd like a permanent solution (and unfortunately live outside the US, meaning getting it fixed officially is out of question)

connorchristian1998 - 回复

It may be that the weight inside the haptic motor is improperly attached? Does this happen consistently or only when experiencing haptic feedback?

Evan Noronha -

I've had my Steam controller for about 1 year and at the 6 month mark the left flipper broke. Since it is all configurable I just made left flipper now left grip.

Then a month ago the battery compartment cover / left and right grip, had one of the two plastic prongs break off so of course I got out the duct tape xD

It's electronically sound so far but the molded plastic is giving out !!

The left joystick takes a lot of abuse and is holding up fine so far.

I'll comment again should anything else fail.

Oh I didn't mention that it is used daily for 8 plus hours.

Mary FNPoppnz - 回复

What holds the B button up? Mine is pushed down all the way but moves loosely. I havent taken the controller apart and dont want to accidentally break anything if i do.

Alec - 回复

The bumper buttons are weak af.. I broke them within two months of daily Rocket League (air roll on LB). This is the third time I've managed to do it. So there's definitely a manufacturing/engineering issue here. The mechanism broke so that the LB button is permanently pressed down and cannot be lifted up. Pressing it elicits no LB button response any more. And I can also hear rattling parts inside the controller now. Just to reiterate, this is the third steam controller that I've encountered the exact same problem. Luckily I've broken it so fast I've been able to get warranty replacements. As a result, I don't have any info on the repairing of the LB button mechanisms inside

azizLIGHT - 回复

I’ve busted 2 LB’s playing Warframe (both out of warranty, of course) There is a plastic plate under the front cover, it has a left and right sort of tab that flexes when pushing the LB and RB. The LB pushes the tab the tab pushes the switch on the edge of the PCB. The thinner flex part of the tab is what breaks, it then rattles around inside.

Deus Tempestas -

My r 1 button has broken, and I don't really want to open it up, but I will if I have to. If I shake it slightly it rattles, and it doesn't click anymore, it's more or less just detached in some way. The thing I am afraid of is that the button is completely broken, or detached from the motherboard, because I would rather not solder it. This is my favorite controller, and I don't have a lot of money to spend on fixing it. I really appreciate any help, than you.

i had a battery leaking acid onto the motherboard which caused problems with he right touch-pad.

I tried cleaning the residue from the MB and the touch-pad ribbon cable but i think i made it all worse.

does anyone know of a website where i can purchase a replacement touch-pad ribbon cable?
