Hi all.

I have two Xbox one controllers with faulty left bumpers. Does anyone know of somewhere in Chch which fixes these for a reasonable price?

I did open one and had a look, all looked okay, thinking maybe a microswitch issue.

Anyway, I seen the prices on EB games for a controller fix and scoffed a bit $55! Could just about get a new one. But I guess that is what it is.

Looking for other suggestions.

That's about what I would expect to pay for a repair. If not more. Better off just taking it apart and using some compressed air to see if that helps then assemble it again. Otherwise get a new one, they are often on special.

Okay thanks,

Yeah I guess just seems like a waste of basically a good controller for one faulty button.
