P3 CONTROLLER PIN-OUT

White dual-shock looking controller with "P3" where the Sony Playstation button would normally be.

PCB with pin-out pointers.

The "P3" marked Playstation 3 controller above is another controller that is easy to add switch sockets to. Click on the PCB picture above for a bigger view.

1 = TRIANGLE
2 = CIRCLE
3 = CROSS
4 = SQUARE

5 (or ADC) = GND

7 ("24") = START
8 = ("26") = SELECT

11 = D-PAD DOWN
12 = D-PAD LEFT
13 = D-PAD RIGHT
14 = D-PAD UP

"L1", "L2", "R1" and "R2" all marked on the PCB.

R3 and L3 = use both contacts on the underside of the stick push-button. Don't use the 5/ADC for the ground/common connector for these.


To lighten sticks, use the following method. Straighten thumb-stick legs from underneath using a plectrum/plastic implement (e.g. phone repair tool). Desolder using desoldering braid and a desoldering gun. This is tricky. You may need to go back and add fresh solder, then attempt to desolder again, wobbling the legs a bit as you go.

Lever the sticks off carefully, open them from underneath, then fit lighter springs (e.g. "RS Pro Stainless Steel Compression Spring, 34.1mm x 3.45mm, 0.06N/mm" - code 821-251) cut to the same length as the original springs. Put back together onto the board and re-solder. Good luck! More help at the OneSwitch DIY index. To support game accessibility please consider donating to SpecialEffect.
