Repair NES Controller Buttons

In this guide I'll show you how to fix a NES controller with sticking or unresponsive buttons.

Here's what you'll need:
Nintendo Controller Replacement Conductive Pads
Phillips head Screwdriver

Remove Casing

Use the phillips head screwdriver to remove the 6 screws from the rear of the controller and set aside the back casing.

Clean NES Button Contacts

Now you can remove the circuit board. If necessary, use a dry rag to clean the contact points on the circuit board.

Remove NES Button Pads
Fit New Button Pads

Remove the old button pads from the front of the controllers casing and replace them with the new pads.

Finally, you can fit the circuit board to the front controller casing and re-fit and secure the rear controller casing with the 6 Phillips head screws. Your controller should now be working as good as if it were new!
