Good day, hopefully a member might be able to gjve me advice. My buttons are not so responsive esp the mode button. Is there a way to increase the responsiveness of the buttons? Thx in advance, Bob

The wireless controller was a product that was discontinued soon after it was released. The keys are the same technology as their other controllers so carefully cleaning the contacts helps. Be careful when you open it up. The battery contacts and the power switch do not have good mechanical support and they break the trace they are soldered to. I have had to make some pretty ugly repairs, but I still prefer it over the corded version!

Thankyou but Unfortunately only the corded versions came up on the search, Ive done the corded and it works wonders, but little afraid to attempt this one without knowing how to do it. Ill keep searching , thank you

The corded version comes up in the search because there are a lot of them out there. The wireless is the same technology, just be careful opening it up!!!
