    Hi everyone, I have recently bought a PS2. While playing some games I noticed that the SQUARE button wasn't working properly, requiring more pressure than the other buttons to be detected as being pressed. I used graphite from a pencil to fix it and it kind of worked, but it was still a bit unresponsive. One of the wires for the right motor came off so I soldered it. While I was fixing the wire, I decided to tin the metal pads on the SQUARE button. Needless to say the plastic sheet melted... The controller still works, but none of the four buttons (SQUARE, CIRCLE, TRIANGLE, CROSS) does.

    The part I need to replace is this:

    The closest I could find are "SA1Q42A" and "SA1Q43-A", both being marketed for my model (H), but it doesn't look like a perfect match. If I bought it, I think → and ↓ would be inverted.

    Do you know any other possible replacement or should I just buy one of those?

    EDIT: I have found another "SA1Q42A" but this one does match.
    I have no idea why this is different from the others...
