Repair/fix broken xbox controller? Answered

 Hey guys, all of my original xbox controllers have decided to quit on me, there doesn't seem to be any damage on them on the outside, i think it mighgt have something to do with the cords. Does anyone know what's wrong and how i could fix it? Thanks.

I had a similar issue with a few of my old Gamecube controllers. There was one that the buttons didn't work, another that the joysticks didn't work, and another with both problems.

What I did was take out the good/working parts and combined them into one complete controller. It works pretty well, but the main joystick is missing the top peice, so it is a little awkward to use. Other than that, all works well.
