So on a DS3 you can’t pop open those teal colored “doors” and replace the analog sensors? Bummer.
Just a heads up, if you take off the analog sticks, you can pop open those green plastic “doors” and replace the analog sensor (small plastic disc) inside to fix analog stick issues. Saves you from having to go through the effort of soldering on a new one and from my experience, lots of controllers use those same sensors. Even PS1 and PS2 controllers I believe.
Did this fix to the letter, controller works now but the light bar does not and I'm unsure if it charges. It shows it's fully charged. Could it be that the micro-usb connection is frapped?
