PostSubject: Scuf Repair   Tue Mar 19, 2013 3:09 pm

As some may know my scuf had worn out after about 9 months of use. The left thumbstick would not let me run when playing COD and both thumbsticks felt loose. I wasn't about to buy another one so I decided to take it apart and switch the board out with one of my good controllers boards. I kept the bottom shell of the scuff and switch the triggers. It only requires you to solder the 4 wires for the A and B buttons on the paddles. Saving me $120 and now I have basically a brand new scuf.

Old scuf board

The 2 wires coming from the tact switches get soldered back here. One to each side of the split on the circles and you must gently scrape the black stuff off those circular pads on each side of the split until you see the copper then solder the wires coming from your original scuf shell bottom to each side of the circle. Use as little solder as possible to make the buttons on top still work/feel correctly.


Sorry didn't take pics while it was apart but here it is finished







PS: It is dirty lol. Gets used a lot.

Awesome Help Man! I am looking into a scuf myself. How do you like it? Has it helped your game out quite a bit?

I love it to the point that I don't want to use any other controller. It does make your aiming and firing reaction a hair faster once set up correctly. I am also used to the A and B button on the bottom. I felt lost with out it for the past 2 weeks.

I did the same thing Scott. My old Scuf wore out and my wife got me a new OEM controller for Christmas so I took the guts of my Scuf and the bottom half and soldered the wires on. Good as new and now I have a back up.

Nice man, Scuff rips people off like no other!

I soldered directly to the pads on my latest controller too. I got tired of finding the correct via for each button and a common ground... i got lazy haha. I was surprised that I couldn't feel the difference in the face buttons between my other controllers where i went behind the board and the one right to the pads. I did only use 32 gauge and only scraped a tiny tiny bit of the pad on each far side and trimmed the rubber pads... did you have to trim at all?

You don't have any crazy ways to fix a scratched CD do you? I'm on my second copy of BO2 because my son ran into my Xbox and I now have a circular scratch ring around my original copy. Would still love to fix it though and give it to a friend.

No I didn't trim but I did have to reopen it a few times to get the solder thin enough to work properly. Scuf themselves solder directly to the pad also.

Hmm, I know my OG Scuff... I "think" Slams too (going on his pictures of the internals) was soldered using the vias... but they probably have different people soldering different ways in "the back room" lol. Let me know if you start experiencing issues with your "pad solder"... mine's also going strong... but i wonder if one day it just gives out haha. Althoughhhhhh i am pressing the top face buttons much much less after duplicating all of them underneath... ah well 720 with new controllers will be here before i break a tiny 32 gauge solder joint. Then it's on to cracking those controllers open and seeing whats what.

Ya this pic is the original scuf board. I have another I made myself which also is worn out and needs a new board but the solders held fine to the pads for past 2 years.

Sweet, that's good news! I was afraid it wouldn't last as long but so far so good and your confirmation makes me feel even better haha. It's a shame more people won't tinker themselves... they'd save soooo much money and have the knowledge to repair if/when things do go wrong or they need to replace an analog or bumper button etc.

Cutting paste and a good buffing pad on an angle grinder,keep the direction of the buffing pad running from the center out to the edge.
