so i was just gifted a used PS4, opened it, cleaned it and applied the perfect amount of thermal paste =)
The controller i got looks almost new but the L2 button is always pressed on. By this i mean that the trigger works normally and feels entirely normal but nothing happens when i press it. Unable to go to upperCase letters when writing a message. Also when got into a game, i saw that the game records the L2 button being constantly pressed (character movement, map zooming out on its own…).
So i opened the controller, disengaged the L2 and R2 triggers and had a look at the silicone piece
and Conductive film under them, everything looks goo and clean. Now there is a very very small scratch on the film under the L2 Trigger but i may have made it myself while testing it.
The R2 works when i press the silicone piece, but not the L2.
I was investigating the issue and came upon the idea that it might be the conductive film that would be damaged somehow. I’ m willing to try to fix it but i need help selecting the right model since i’m getting incomplete/conflicting informations on the websites i’m checking.
My Controller is a CUH ZCT2U with number 4-698-771-22-F2 and it has the lightbar on the touchpad so according to consoleskins website on controller generations it’s a gen 4 or 5. (not getting exact match with their numbers)
So in the end i’m trying to find out which Conductive film to buy (considering its a conductive film issue) and hoping someone can help me.
