Step 4: Switchin

Put the switch in your new hole. Make sure that you orient the pins so that they are not getting bent or squashed when the controller is back together. I had to remove some of the motor holder to fit my switch in.

Hey guys quick question do you solder the live wire or the power wire to the led ? Or both ? Need to know asap
<p>does this work on rock candy controllers? </p>
My controller has TP-19 and TP-20 idk what to do. On the TP-19 the T is a little covered HELP ME!
Thanks for the instructions, worked perfectly!
Did everything step by step mbut i have a number of problems the push button doesnt fire when activated plus if i hold it down and use RT nothing happans as if it cancels the firing system. Last the player 1 LED doesnt appear dimmly rather not at all.. Any HELP would be VERY awsome ASAP..
Yea this exact thing happened to me. the player 1 led fell off and the right trigger doesn't work.&nbsp;<br> <br>
***update*** this does still work!! Cod bo2! But I got the wrong button so i have to hold the button in order to use the right trigger! And maltalk don't know if ur still in here but the reson ur trigger is not working is either it's the same problem as mine or u just have solder or wire touching another point

<p>Could it work with the &quot;B&quot; button? How to do it?</p>
I did everything right but my switch is activating by its self I have to hold it so it will not fire please help
<p>lol i just posted a comment about that hopefully it will help you </p>
IMO it really is simpler to solder the second wire to the right rumble pin. I couldn't get my mod to work with the led soldering spot, but the rumble pin worked like a charm :O
<p>What do you mean rumble pin?</p>
<p>the rumble pin is the motor which vibrates the controller there is an negative and positive wire </p>
<p>idk who still sees this page but me personally used these steps back in 2008 to mod my controller and figured out that i was using the wrong push button the button shown in the pic is an normally open push button meaning when you solder one point the led the negative side and the other wire the motor what happens it will keep shooting until you hold the button</p><p>so i switched the button to an EVQ-PB with the four pin and solder the two wire to each of the corners and it worked fine </p><p>while the LED as an NEGATIVE and a POSITIVE side make sure to use an resistor on the led for it not to burn out if its to hard to solder the wire just find another negative point on the controller </p><p>using the right wire Gauge is important to</p>
<p>I didnt get it right</p>
<p>Here's the thing, I would like to add a new button to my original Xbox S-Controller (the old Xbox), I would like to add an extra left trigger, I noticed that it has 3 pins insted of the regular 2 pins, I went ahead and tested and it showed me that the two conducting when I pressed the trigger were the two on top... So I installed my two pin button with those two pins in the controller, leaving the extra pin free, the lower one. I use that button to fire in Halo 2, so I went to test my controller and when the game starts It works, but then I use the originall left trigger the new button stops working... What can I do to fix this problem? Has it to do with the extra free pin? Or do you think it is a problem directly of the button? I recycled it from an old TV.</p><p>Thank you in advance, have a nice day.</p>
I did everything exactly as listed, i have the controller with the silver resistor in the middle and all that happened is when i press RT nothing happens unless i hold down the switch. like when i dont it cuts the circuit.
The LEDs are hard to solder and have a strong joint. Is there any other points you can solder this to?
I know this is an old post but i was wondering if anyone could help me... i did everything right and the trigger still works but the rapidfire button acts as a secondaey trigger and not rapid at all... what did i do wrong? it worked perfect before i soldered everything down
Is it an older controller? because if its a new one it wont work trust me i found out the hard way <br>
where did you get that push button?
you guys aren't missing out on anything. rapid fire mod only makes it so that you don't have to keep slamming down the trigger to fire. it doesn't add anything.

Hi, <br> <br>I have had problems with the soldering portion of this project. I have tried two seperate times to solder ( one on a matrix board one on a CG board). I cannot get The negative terminal of D21 (or D1 on the CG board) to solder to my wire. I ended up pulling the LED out with my wire both times. Is there any trick to this? Am I applying too much heat? <br> <br>I am using a nexxtech 45W soldering iron. <br> <br>Thanks in advance. <br> <br>- BS
lol you melted your controller in pic 7

Hey guys Ineed your help. What do you solder the wire to when you solder the wire by D21? All I have is a LED Light. Is that what I Solder it to?<br>Thanks
ok so the torx screws in the controller shown r different than the ones in mine. mine r the security screws with a pin in the middle. anyone know where i can get a security screwdriver small enough?<br>
you can find it in every hardware store and there its saiyng that its T8 but I have a T9 which is perfest 4 all the screws u want 2 untighten in xbox and accessories
I just got a set of those security screw drill bits from my local hardware store. I had to grind the bit on the sides a little though to allow it to unscrew the screws in the bottom tips of the controller
I used a small flat head screwdriver and chipped the little pin away, you canalso buy torx screwdrivers that have a hollow tip that are designed for those screws. hope that helps.
thank you and yes it does help<br>
right i want to do this mod it seems very simple, however i cant find them red tactile buttons, i tried ebay ans stuff but no luck. website please? and also define any cable, red, black? thin, fat??? thanks
I have the &quot;other style&quot; controller, and ive already drilled the whole and added the push button. If i solder and finish the process will i be able to use both trigger buttons? (the standard and added) I know the rapid fire wont work but using two triggers would be nice.
how big does the switch have to be
Can I use my controller if it doesnt have the crystal or whatever you call it in the middle of the circuit board, if not where do I get a controller like that?
does it matter how thick your wires are? i plan on modding my controller soon have some thinner wires want to make sure they will work
Thicker is fine if you don't short anything out thinner's just easier to work with in this case. <br><br>This wire in this instructable is really easy to get if you've got any old computer's or old computer parts lying around you can take the Gray IDE ribbon cables apart and use that.
could you use a common ground instead of the LED? or is it backwards you need the led for the 3.3V in power source
<br> A regular <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/learn-about-the-555/">555</a> in astable mode should work nicely if you don't have pwm LEDs on your controller.
