NEW XBox One controller tear down, fix, and repair video. Best Video.
So right here I have the brand new XBox One Controller. We’re going to be taking it apart today and seeing what’s inside. To start off there are these little ridges down along the bottom that you can pop off the plastic piece. It’s just a series of little snaps that connect the plastic piece to the actual controller itself. So you can see there are two up at the top, three at the bottom and two on the other side. Same thing with this one over here. You have to be kind of aggressive with it, but they are pretty sturdy. Then to get the four screws out from the controller you have to have that special bit that has a little hole in the center of it. Microsoft used these special security screws to keep this thing shut. And there’s one more screw hidden underneath this plastic label underneath the battery cover. So I’m going to pop that out as well, and then that releases the front plate of the XBox controller exposing the buttons and the vibrators beneath. I’m also going to pop off the back plate where the batteries are held as you can see.
And then this is the whole controller. Nothing’s really replaceable on it which is kind of disappointing. You can see the vibrators right here, they are two different sizes. I guess that gives kind of two different feels depending on what happens in the game play. And then you can kind of see that even cleaning out the buttons would be pretty difficult at this point. There’s not a whole lot of room to go off of. And then so here are the vibrators that I mentioned before. There are also two little hidden vibrating motors hidden up in the triggers which I thought was pretty interesting as you can see. Right here you can see that the bigger vibrating motors can actually pop out but they’re not replaceable because they’re soldered into the motherboard.
And now I’m just going to put on the back plastic again, making sure to line up the screw holes. And the front plastic goes over the buttons again. Pressing that into place. And then before I screw down the back plastic I’m making sure that these big trigger buttons are put underneath so they can keep on moving.
If you tighten it down while the triggers are on the outside then the triggers will be stuck in the out position. Getting that screw tightened down into place. And then getting those four screws, making sure all the buttons still work. They’re not stuck at all. Getting those four screws put back into place and then the back plastics clicked in. You can hear how solid they are. The controller’s by no means fragile. You can get replacement controllers on Amazon. I’ll put a link in the description below. Usually they’re pretty cheap.
