    Default Arcade Buttons stop working when i re attach back plate

    Ok....

    So it's taken about three days of my life to try and do this arcade mod... and i sort of want to kill myself...

    So all the buttons seem to be working now, did the FW upgrade to 1.3, imported latest tsi.

    Basically, when I reattach the back plate to the vci, the buttons stop working.

    With the back plate off when i test the buttons they all work fine, super responsive etc.

    Could it be the direction of the diodes are wrong? that's the only thing i can think of...

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Found a pretty ghetto solution... i lined the inside of back plate with newspaper. seems to have solved it.

    Odd though cause all the wires were well soldered and I used shrink wrap...

    anyway, am actually starting to have a proper go and loving the arcade buttons and SE mapping.

    Hopefully no more issues...

    Sounds like the buttons are touching the case when you put it on and shorting out.

    yeah but they are proper covered in shrink wrap...

    defo no metal exposed.

    newspaper seems to have solved it.
