Hello Admin,

It's been about a week since your last response. What else can I do to assist you with troubleshooting my problem? I'm eager to do more with my Retrostone2 Pro, but this problem is rendering it almost unplayable.

Please advise. Thanks again for the help!
I solved by making the missing welds, evidently the missing welds created a false contact and the joystick went crazy, try to see if your joystick welds are done well, mine were really bad.

Hey Nocturne and Co:

Thanks for the support and feedback. I went ahead and opened up the RS2 and it does indeed look like the analog stick module hasn't been correctly soldered into the board.

Looking at points of contact at "123", it looks like 1 and 3 aren't even soldered. I've attached pictures of the module below. Please let me know how I should proceed. I have some soldering experience and access to the tools I should need.

I have redone the welds, now it works perfectly, and I can play.
