Question about Microsoft SideWinder Precision Pro Joystick
I have a Microsoft SindeWinder Precision Pro Part No. X03-57540, Product I.D. 85791-579-3326194-10000, which the cable got cut off.
Could anyone tell me how to rewire from the ciruit board to the gameport connector.
There are approx 10 wires - that includes the one for ground.
The colours are:
possibly Brown or Purple
Bare wire in Heat shrink tubing - ground ?
This is the color code:
DB-15, Male, missing pins: 5,6,8,9,13,15
Wires color code
Red: Pin 1 Pin 1: Red Yellow: Pin 14 Pin 2: Purple Green: Pin 10 Pin 3: Grey Black: Pin 4 Pin 4: Black Purple: Pin 2 Pin 7: Dark blue Dark Blue: Pin 7 Pin 10: Green Light Blue: Pin 12 Pin 11: White Grey: Pin 3 Pin 12: Light Blue White: Pin 11 Pin 14: Yellow

Since its very risky and very tough for a person who is not having a knowledge of electronics....to be able to repair it you should know soldering ..a elecronic device know as soldering machine comes through which you can solder all the braked wires.....if you remember where the wires were before, you can do it..just buy a soldering machine ,flux ,and soder wire to fix the wire ..
a flux is a chemical cleaning agent which facilitates soldering, brazing, and welding by removing oxidation from the metals to be joined.
Soldering is a process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint, the filler metal having a relatively low melting point. Soft soldering is characterized by the melting point of the filler metal, which is below 400 °C. The filler metal used in the process is called solder.
Soldering is distinguished from brazing by use of a lower melting-temperature filler metal; it is distinguished from welding by the base metals not being melted during the joining process. In a soldering process, heat is applied to the parts to be joined, causing the solder to melt and be drawn into the joint by capillary action and to bond to the materials to be joined by wetting action. After the metal cools, the resulting joints are not as strong as the base metal, but have adequate strength, electrical conductivity, and water-tightness for many use
It will be highly appreciated if you could take a minute and provide your feedback..

May i know on what kind of circuit board you want to connect the wiring..

Wiring color are not always the same they may change even within same model.
You need to buy a tester, like this Handheld Mini Digital Multimeter,
and find out functions for each cable.
A mistake at this point can result in damage to the computer power supply or the game card. The controller cable must have a 15-pin male connector on one end and bare wire ends on the other. A male plug is one with a hollow indentation filled with small pins. The outer jacket of the cable must be stripped sufficiently so that the wires can reach across the required span. A VOM or continuity checker is used to trace the wires out to the corresponding pin of the connector. The wires are color coded so one probe of the VOM is connected to a wire and the other is touched to a pin until continuity is achieved. The following list should be printed and the wire color noted in the appropriate column as it is found. The plug should have very small numbers imprinted adjacent to each pin. If it does not, the diagram below can be used to determine the pin number.
PIN ASSIGNMENT ON CONTROLLER CONNECTOR
(Only the pins shown in boldface italics are required in this project)
PIN # DESCRIPTION WIRE COLOR 1 +5 Volts>
2 Button 1
3 X-Axis, Stick 1
6 Y-Axis, Stick 1
7 Button 2
8 +5 Volts
9 +5 Volts
10 Button 3
11 X-Axis, Stick 2
13 Y-Axis, Stick 2
14 Button 4
15 +5 Volts
After the correct wires are determined, wiring can begin. The first thing that must be done is to isolate the unused ground (pin 5) and +5 volt wires (pins 8, 9 and 15). If the wires can be exposed at the male connector end, they can be cut off at the connector. Otherwise, any method possible must be used to isolate the ends of the wires to ensure that a ground and +5 volt wire can contact each other and short. Shorting ground to +5 volts can destroy the computer power supply. The wire end of the cable can be routed through the antenna hole or any other point the seems convenient. The +5 volt wire from pin one can be routed through the master switch to allow the power to be turned off to the controller while it is not in use. The use of the trainer switch as a select or fire button is optional. There are three wires on the trainer switch. The VOM is used to find the two wires that have continuity when the trainer switch is pressed and the other wire is removed. The ground (pin 4) is connected to one of the remaining wires of the trainer switch and the wire from pin 2 on the plug is connected to the other. These connections should be taped to avoid having them touch a +5 volt wire. The +5 volt line will be connected the pots so efforts must be taken to assure that no ground wire can make contact with a pot. Any wires that are not used must be removed or isolated.
