I just completed repairing 9 N64 controllers that suffered the loose analog stick issue. I did it for a game store I do regular business with. The store owner supplied me with 20 BRAND NEW NEVER USED N64 analog stick modules. He's being cagey about it, but I think he's going to tell me how I can obtain them too.


If I can obtain these, the first 4 are MINE. :D I'm hoping to get my hands on as many as I can/can afford.

Interest check here! Post how many you would want, if they are reasonably cheap. If turns out to be a wholesaler that you can simply order from, I will post the info. Otherwise (if it's some sort of backchannel supply) help me decide how many to get. For my business alone, I can likely easily take 100+.

I figure some DP members could find a good use for thse little buggers. :D

How many?

Thats pretty cool. How hard is it to replace the analog module? If you can get them in bulk that would be great. I am sure the need for these will skyrocket down the road....when it isn't possible to get a new n64 stick. Sort of like the repair kits for the 5200 joysticks.

It's easy. Take back off of controller. Remove 3 screws holding module, unplug and pull module. replace, and reverse instructions.


You can't buy new N64 first party controllers round these parts, anywhere. Haven't been able to for close to a year now. Third party only. The game store owner got these sticks, becuase the demand for 1st party N64 was strong. These 9 won't last the week, if they make it to the display. I think his staff my suck 'em all up.

I would love to have one for my Extreme Green controller. THe old one was very loose on left/right and was making loud crunching noise. Some piece of plastic seems to have broken off inside the stick module.

I do have a hardly used black and a blue one in decent shape as well as a limited edition gold.

BUMP.

I've secured a supply. They aren't online, but I'm willing to let 'em go to DP'ers for cost plus actual ship, (cost =$5.32USD). Helps me make a substantial order so my supplier will keep them in stock.
