    hi guys i got a new fake controller xeno blade edition from china, everything working as it should but i got one with a busted R button.
    it clicks but it doesnt register.
    any component i should look at to replace.

    i got several before and no issues, but i came across a faulty one

    Buy a regular official Switch Pro Controller and swap the shell

    i did open it up and removed the buttons they dont seem to have anything to be connected to.
    all 3 on the top working except this one.
    will investigate further will open it once more to see. maybe the R button has a seperate connector

    Fake stuff tend to act up like that. I don't think it is worth in investing anything to repair them. But if you insist, then try replacing the R button, its ribbon cable or something else associated with it.
    However don't get frustrated if it won't fix up your issue, that's the thing with fake stuff.
