XBox One 1708 Controller displays bad & weird button behavior
Not sure if this one is a 1708 (label in battery compartment has been removed). It’s definitely red! I’m not the first owner, so I don’t know the history of the controller.
The Sync button would blink once and go dead when pressed. The controller works as expected when a micro-USB cable is connected. After disconnecting the micro-USB cable and attempting wireless connectivity with known working batteries, I noticed the controller works as expected when the Sync button is HELD DOWN. I then hit the B button and the console asked which controller am I using (as I had a working 1537 already connected). Releasing the Sync button turns off the 1708.
The only other defect - the Pause/Menu button (just left of the X button) fails to engage at all.
All other buttons and joysticks work as expected and tested with the Game Controller Tester app for Windows 10.
What should I examine when I take the 1708 apart in addition to the silicon front button assembly?
Where can I get replacement microswitches for the Pause/Menu and Sync buttons?
