How do I know which replacement button ribbon film to purchase?

I am looking to replace the button ribbon film in several controllers that don't work due to liquid corrosion on the film's connection point to the controller board. I have noticed several differences in button conductive ribbon films that are available out there. How do I know which ones I need to purchase? Are there differences internally in some Dualshock 3 controllers?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

EBay. I have seen as many as 4 different styles of film available from parts sellers. The looks are all similar with slight visual differences due to different manufacturers. The main reason why I'm concerned there is a difference for specific controllers is the fact that there are differences in the film's connection points to the controller board on all of the available film's.


ok, I've got your idea.
