Why is my pro controller not charging?
This is my first time here. I have a Pro Controller that has been laying around for a while because there was an issue with it but I never took care of it until now. However, I do have a lot of information on what is wrong with it.
First, how I got here. I disassembled my NS Pro at night and I left it all the parts out on a table for 1 day since I didn’t have time to finish it. I eventually did what I needed to do which was modifying the D-pad (I added tape to the corners so that it wouldn’t misinput as often). Then I tried charging it, it worked and I left it overnight. However, back then I used my Macbook Pro charger to charge my pro controller. Usually, nothing would go wrong. When I woke up in the morning, the bottom of the controller was warm and it was still charging. I unplugged it, and when I tried plugging it back in, no “orange light” appeared, meaning that it wasn’t charging/it was full. Then when I pressed a button to see if the green LED lights showed up, they didn’t show up either. I took it apart to see if I had missed anything or any pieces (which I didn’t) and then I came to a conclusion with the help of my friends. I tried replacing the battery by using a 3DS battery that I bought from Amazon, and two things happened. The first battery, died a couple of minutes after I put the battery in the controller. I thought the battery was low so I assumed it was the batteries fault, however it was shorted. Then I tried another 3DS battery, and I immediately plugged a charger into my NS Pro. The orange light showed up, and it showed that it was charging. I left it like that for around 20 minutes and when I unplugged it (I had to go somewhere) it died within a couple of minutes. It’s either that the NS Pro is shorting batteries that get inserted, or I’m just not charging the battery for long enough. I really hope that I’m able to get my controller fixed soon, if you happen to have a solution or need me to do some testing, please let me know in detail (I won’t know what exactly to do if you just tell me to:
“Disassemble the NS Pro and test (with multimeter):
- The battery;
- Test the energy port;”
Images would help me out a lot. I thank you all in advance for your time and help.
