I have a problem with my gamepad. It's USB cable broke just near the USB connector..
I wanted to have it repaired, but I was told it was going to cost me 15 euros, I could get a new one for that money..
But I still wanted to take the harder way and try to repair it myself.
So, I had another gamepad (without vibrations and joysticks and stuff) which isn't working but has a non-broken USB cable.
So I opened both gamepads. The one with the broken cable also had a connector for PS2. Altogether there were 9 differently colored wires going into the gamepad:
But only 5 of them went into the USB connector:
white, brown, yellow, blue and red
in another words D+, DI, CS, CLK ja +3.3V
In the other gamepad's cable there were only 4 wires:
Now I have two USB cables which need to be connected.. one has 5 wires and other has 4.
I would like to know if there is a possibility to connect the wires so the gamepad would work? And which wires I need to connect for that?
and if I connect them wrong, is there a chance I could harm my PC? motherboard maybe? break my USB port?
