RE: Joysticks psp-1000 needs additional board ? - zawoogle - 07-26-2020

hey all, need some advice. I mixed up the header when soldering. I ended up adding header to USB +. USB -, and USB ex, instead of adding them to the right side of the mobo. Do i need to remove these and resolder or can I just add new header pins to the proper slots (42.43.40)?

Edit: I ended up just reusing the header pins, only my "L2" button is not working. Analogues are detected in SSH but not in Retropie configuration interface. Gonna pop it open tomorrow and see if I need to resolder.

Hey zawoogle,

I was out all weekend, so I'm sorry that I couldn't respond easily. What's the current status of this? Would you be able to post some photos of it? I'm not actually 100% sure I understand what went wrong. Did you install the board upside-down?

How are the analog sticks detected in SSH? What test are you doing, 'jstest'?

Hey no worries! I was talking about the small header pins that we are supposed to solder into the tiny holes on the motherboard where we then attach the L2R2 addon board for Boxypixel. I got past that part but now I can't figure out why my CM3 wont power on without a micro USB cable attached.

I unplugged the battery, and attached the charging cable. I am getting a blue LED. I will open a support ticket.
