I Bought the First BROKEN PS5 DualSense Controller – But Can I Fix it? I bought 2 broken DualSense controllers to see if I could fix them. The first one had a messed up thumbstick and the second one had a messed up headset jack and was missing the R1 button.

  1. Great video! Now, my Mac Book Pro is broken. It's running out of storage. How about your next video be about adding more SSD storage to the Mac Book Pro logic board. Wishful thinking! Keep up the good work with these videos!

  2. Fix use super glue with baking soda and sand smooth work’s GREAT put glue on spot you want to fix then sprinkle baking soda over it . ? warning it dry’s fast

    Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is an effective accelerant for cyanoacrylate glues, and will set them instantly (much less than a second) into a rock hard solid. Epoxy, on the other hand, provides a large range of hardening times, from one minute to several hours, depending on the formulation

  3. IMO, if you can solder all four point in 9:23. Is good enough for me, I'm guessing that all you needed to charge the controller. The ripped pad and missing resistors, probably for the audio jack. As long it could charge it's a win for me.

  4. Hi i have both a nintendo switch pro controller and nvidia shield controller both with the same problem won't charge at all but work fine plugged in any chance you have any videos covering this I've installed new batteries in both to double check thanks if you could send me a link

  5. Only one choice in this world matters:

    1) Will you build YOUR kingdom and serve yourself as you prop yourself up.

    2) Will you serve God and submit to His Kingdom. Serving others than yourself.

    Get to know Jesus before it is too late.

    Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
