Replace PSP for Joycon joysticks

Post by CroCop » Sun Dec 01, 2019 7:30 am

I would like to replace my PSP Joysticks for those joycons of the Nintendo Switch, but they are not recognized. PSP is working good but I would like to have real Analogsticks.

I bought 0.5mm 6pin FPC adapter that Kite recommended to me:

Is the FPC inserted against the EDGE of one of the sides of the connector? You need to be careful because the FPC is 5pin and your adapter is 6pin! So it needs to be moved 1pin to the side. From the pic it looks kinda in the middle

Did you resolve the issue? I'm in the process of making a breakout board for the PSVita joystick but if you are interested I can add the joycon joystick to a list of items I'll make for the community.

Main purpose of my design is to be as small as possible (about 10mmx15mm) so you would just need some double sided tape to stick it down to your case.

Just in case you were still willing to try, flip the ribbon upside down, it's in the wrong way. I made the same mistake and now it works great!
