If the R button snaps off the joycon motherboard you can run jumper wires to the 2 places shown in the photo below if there are no pads left under the R button switch.
Anyone know the part number for that surface mount button? Is it available on Digikey, Mouser, etc?
aliexpress have them. I can’t post a link but search for joycon micro switch should bring up the results.
they cost £2.31 for 2
Yea, I’ve seen a few around specifically sold as a joy con part. I was hoping it was a generic part that an electronics supplier would stock. Switches like that typically cost way less than a dollar.
Hello, I don’t know how we could contact each other, but I would really like to get some tips on how to do this Thank you. Could you explain which kind of cables you used, how you welded them to the board, but also what is the kind of… transparent glue you used ? Thanks for your help.
I just fixed 7 broken right joycons and I used 0.1 mm enameled wire, in similar fashion as the images in this topic. Using uv solder mask is probably not a totally bad idea. Be careful when removing the right joycon battery compartment, sometimes the button is still connected and unsoldering instead of ripping it off saves you a lot of trouble. If the metal clamp is bend you probably need a new button. This is nothing different than running jumper wires and restoring pads on any other kind of board you will probably find a video. I lately saw a video from northridgeFix where he restored ripped off nintendo switch lcd connector pads, which is basically the same process.
