Well same thing happened to me not sure if you figured it out yet but the circuit board is kinda messed up how they put it together there's space under the board so the board bends. Making your buttons not make contact with the board. SO THE SOLUTION TO THIS IS: pad the empty space with something I used toilet paper.. lol but seriously it'll push up agaisnt the board and make it stay up and not bend thus letting the buttons make contact with the board hope this help bro. Easy fix.
I think its could be to do with heat and the IC's (cpu&gpu) and maybe lead-free solder
As the IC's are BGA they will react to heat in a different way to the PCB material they are mounted to as
they heat up at different rates they cause dry joints on the BGA, this
is most likely a process issue with the way they were first built.
that's why the use the mods that pull the chip closer to the the board by putting pressure on it...
My receiver died two days ago, i opened it up, and the Fuse was damaged, dont know how it could happen, not that much of current going thru that receiver, well the thing is all you have to do is get a solderer, and soldering iron, remove the fuse and solder a little cable so that you have a close circuit, The fuse is on the down side of the PCB (Printed Circuit Board), its named after F1
VR353 is a 200k pot that feeds directly in to the vertical oscillation input of the chip on the main board at connection B1. If this pot is broken, you must replace the pot in order to get any vertical oscillation at all.
Try clicking here first. If that can't help, I would try going to sony and RMA the controller, which means you send them your controller, and then they'll send you a brand new one for free. But they may charge S and H. I couldn't find any circuit board diagrams. Sorry about that. Well, Good Luck. Please rate my solution.
I have the same problem - have lost all stick forces (everything else works fine) and the Forces self test that can be run from the original CD software says there is no electrical power. Have changed the fuse etc. but problem remains. I think something inside the device hardware is bust. Like you I cannot find anything on the Internet as to how or where the device can be repaired!
When Windows does not recognise the device, it practically means the device is faulty to the point where Windows cannot even determine what sort of device it is, it can only tell that you've plugged something in and it doesn't know what.
This is not down to compatibility, software issues or that it isn't installed properly. It is just a faulty unit. If it's within warranty, get it returned for a replacement or a repair - if it's not, don't bother with getting it repaired, it'd be quicker and cheaper to get a new one.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news - I test USB devices like these all the time and the situation is always the same when you get that error message from the system tray when you plug a USB device in.
