"A" button working like a turbo controller?

I bought a gamecube controller from china, and everything seems to work fine. But in some games that I have to press and hold the "A" button the videogame understands that I press and release and press again the button many times.

Has anyone seen anything like this? And there's someway to fix it?

Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There could be a series of problems with this issue you're reporting. Since it's a knock off controller it could be:

  • Damage to the PCB during manufacturing.
  • A bad button indicator.
  • Some kind of liquid making a crossed connection.

Get a tri-wing driver, open up the device and inspect it. Clean up the area with rubbing alcohol, inspect the button and the pad it rests on and look over the cuircit board to see if there are broken traces or other signs of damage. If you're having any issues determining the problem. Take a few pictures and add them to this post to see if there is anything you may have overlooked.

Hopefully, we can get this controller working properly again. Good luck!
