If you are reading this in order to learn how to repair your controller, don't this will only be a guide of how to TEAR IT DOWN not disassemble.

Bu teardown bir tamir kılavuzu değildir. DualShock 3 cihazınızı onarmak için, servis kılavuzumuzu kullanın.

  1. Flip the controller upside down.
    • Flip the controller upside down.

    • Unscrew the 5 screws (marked out in orange in the picture).

    Sorry! Meant to be 5 screws.

    Imad Knight -

    What size are the screws? I’m trying to get a replacement set and it does me no good to not have a definite answer

    How to unscrew a screw without a screwdriver ?

  2. Once the cover is off, the controller should look like this. Follow the red and black wire(s) from the battery to the connector. Take a pair of small pliers and unhook the battery (refer to picture 2 of this step to see it unhooked). The battery will simply lift out revealing the motherboard (refer to picture 3 ots).

    • The battery will simply lift out revealing the motherboard (refer to picture 3 ots).

    • From here, the plastic holding the battery will be able to lifted out.

  3. This will be the step where you teardown the controller not take it apart. To remove the 4 buttons (2 on each side), first lift out the R1 (or L1) button.  This may require you to wiggle the button.

    • To remove the 4 buttons (2 on each side), first lift out the R1 (or L1) button. This may require you to wiggle the button.

    • From here, you will have to apply force to tear out the R2 (or L2) button and the plastic it is connected to. In the 2 pictures (ots) you can see one side taken apart and the other as it normally is.

  4. For this step, you will need to de-solder the wires that connect the motors to motherboard. Or, if you are like me and don't have a solder, you can attempt to rip the wires of. First of, lift the whole motor out of the plastic mount. This may take some force as it is glued in.

    • After that, simply cut the cable off of the motherboard, or de-solder it. In the first picture you can see what your controller will look like with one motor missing.

    • Repeat the same on the other side.

    De-soldering is recommended though, since ripping the wires away with brute force could tear off the pads connecting the wires to the motherboard's circuitry.

    Yeah, I agree with you completely. But since this was a teardown and I had no intention of putting it back together (and I don't have a solder), I just ripped it off.

  5. First off, unscrwew the single screw that holds the motherboard onto the plastic (marked out in orange in the first and second picture ots). With that screw removed, the whole motherboard (along with the 2 joysticks) can be simply lifted right out. Pictures 2 and 3 show the case without the motherboard and joysticks.

  6. To remove the white plastic, simply lift it out of the controller. There are no screws,clips or glue holding it in. Pictures 2 and 3 show the plastic by itself. Pictures 2 and 3 show the plastic by itself.

  7. First of, remove the 2 white pieces or rubber on the sides and the middle, grey piece too. The first picture shows you what this will look like. Then simply "pop" the buttons out (marked out in orange in picture 2) from the other side (the front). You can also remove the "Play Station" logo button. For the other side, remove the top plastic and then the 4 buttons (made of one piece of plastic).

  8. The final piece to remove is the plastic battery level light cover. This is done by simply pressing in the 4 (slightly protruding) pieces of plastic. The 3 pictures show the the case completely stripped out.

    • And thats that. If you have been following the guide, you now have a completely stripped down PS3 controller. If you have read this for entertainment, you now know what it takes to strip down a PS3 controller. Thank you for reading.

Good job man really a great tutorial.!

Ricky J - Yanıt

Rip. To the controller that he used.

Tintin1870 - Yanıt

If I have to sacrifice one controller in order to show people how to (potentially) fix theirs, then I'm fully fine with that.

Imad Knight -

You can remove the entire motherboard assembly without disconnecting the rumble motors. Just lift them out at the same time carefully

Ephraim Miller - Yanıt

Some wording needs to be edited,

(TEAR IT DOWN not disassemble. )

Is in fact the same thing.

Cut wire from board ,

vs rip it off , would work,, lol.

The rubber touch switch pads,,

carbon pile buttons,, just might

be the reason my L2/ R2 Quit today,

or dust got under flex circuit strip

that bump contacts the circuit board

seen in recent video, scrubbed clean

to make it functional.

Not looking forward to the torture,

but not able to shift gears on

Granturismo , or fire motars from

pirate ship of Assassins Creed Rogue,

is cramping my style a bit.

Cheers..

You didn’t show anything about the analog sticks.

Abhishek Reddy - Yanıt

You broke the controller… I feel sick

Aiodensghost - Yanıt

Great for you buddy. Has it perhaps occured to you that the board itself could be ?

Imad Knight -

Its so satisfying to me because you scroll up and down slowly you can just see how it come in and out perfectly. Just for entertaining, had do fix my controller and now its doing alright, thx for tips. LOL

tearing it off all apart and connecting a lag switch to it to make others rage in game

Hamza - Yanıt

Imad Knight > really appreciate you doing this tutorial, even if you had to sacrifice a controller in the process like you stated above that you are fine with that if it helps others to fix theirs just shows what kind of good person you are. Thanks again dude, this was a big help for me.

Gene - Yanıt

it is better to disassemble the motherboard and then take the L2, L1 and R2, R1, beacause otherwise you need to take the buttons “by force“ . But anyways thanks for making the teardown .

Vasco Mateus - Yanıt

Just a heads up, if you take off the analog sticks, you can pop open those green plastic “doors” and replace the analog sensor (small plastic disc) inside to fix analog stick issues. Saves you from having to go through the effort of soldering on a new one and from my experience, lots of controllers use those same sensors. Even PS1 and PS2 controllers I believe.
