DualSense Ribbon-Cable: Can I replace it?

Hello guys,

unfortunately i need to replace one of the ribbon-cables in the Dualsense-Controller. Its the one that connects the Vibration motors wirh the mainboard. Any Idea if i can use a different one? Or is this some special Sony thing?

Thanks in advance!

I had to replace mine too, I was able to use a 16-pin 0.5mm ribbon cable (this would be 8.5mm wide) that was from an old laptop display until i could get a new one. You will need to be careful though, I tried some I ordered online and it didn’t even power on. I think the laptop one worked because it’s a directional cable and specified which end should go to the motherboard and monitor (or in this case the trigger assembly).


Edit: For the ribbon cable I ordered I believe it was A type, but I think B type would be more likely to work.

I ripped my L2/L1 Ribbon cable on my ps5 controller during disassembly. anyway i can buy a new cable and what size is it? Or is it repairable. the cable is sheared in half.

If you search for a 16-pin 0.5mm B type cable on amazon or newegg it should come up. Here is one you can try: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S1BNYTS/ref...

I haven't tested this one but if it can be used to carry a laptop display it should work for the trigger assembly. You may have to fold it a bit to fit in the controller. If it doesn't work i'd suggest looking for a cable with higher tolerances (i.e. max voltage, ampage, etc.), b-type, and 16 pins at 8.5mm wide.

Does this company have a good reputation? Do they sell a ribbon cable for the PS5 controller touchpad? I have tried to find one on Amazon but am unsure which one is correct.

Since Andreas's post in 2020 these parts are more widely available now; and you can find them now on eBay and Amazon.
