Having problems with your Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller ?

Wired Xbox 360 Controller is loose where it connects into the top

\015 My Wired Xbox 360 Controller is loose where it connects into the top of the controller. I have to duct tape it down to the top of the controller to keep it form disconnecting while playing games. Is there anyway I can fix this problem either by opening it up and messing with a few things or replacing the entire wire? \015

Answers :

You can try using a little bit of Loctite Handyman Glue if the rubber piece is the only thing that is loose. if the wires themselves are loose inside the controller, i would suggest buying a New/Used controller instead opening it up yourself (unless you work on controllers and other small computerized objects)

The connection where you plug in the power on my compact presario R3000 laptop is broken. The female part that you plug into is loose and probably broken away from the solder on the mother board it self. I can hold the plug in and move it to charge the battery, but as soon as I let go it stops charging and the computer shuts down. how do I take it apart to resolder the connections?


Before you pull apart your laptop, check the male connector and power cord of the adapter, check it with a multimeter and or plug it into another Compaq. You could have a broken wire in the power cord, it could save you a lot of work.\015\012 ... PC Laptops

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
