Hello there's , this is my First InStructable so go easy on me here .
Well Here today i'm going to show you how to repair your damage DDR metal pad , Well somewhat of it . My pad recently stopped working or only abit , I re-checked my contact pads under the steps they were fine, So i thought the brain of the pad was damaged ,After looking underneath and pulling out the centre, It broke all the other wires around it -__- So i had 2 DDR PSX soft mats i never use anymore , So i thought *i'm gonna wire this into my metal pad as the new brains.
Enough or my boring story ,lets begin~
This'll be covering:
Non responsive steps or
Replacing the brains of the Pad with a DDR soft mat
The Tools you'l be needing .
Step 1: Starting Off With Gutting Your Metal Pad
Ok you don't have to fully follow this as there are afew different pads out there ,So follow this as a guideline.
Unscrew all bolts and corners holding down your Acrylic Steps.
Cut The wires and remove the contact pads.
Continue until all steps are off and left with the centre pad .
Check around the centre sides to see any screws holding the centre in place.
This part is abit hard , My Centre pad wouldn't budge ,So underneath were rubber feets with screws inside holding the board from below , Unscrewed 4 Bolts/feet and the top was able to pop off with alittle force .
