So the old one has the same issue now? Then most likely a solder pad/trace is damaged. Please make some photo's of the board and share it with us. With this we can determine what need to be done. Thanks!

Also , i know the potentiometer is not there , i tired without one and it still points up . The left/right works fine


@hamodizoabi Would you happen to have pictures of the board to ensure the traces within it aren't damaged?


I tried, not sure if you can actually see anything.

Would it be possible that I over heated the board ?


Overheating the board is possible. Because other components can be damaged with too much heat. Best thing to do is to post a picture (if possible). If a pad broke or trace, we should be able to see it. Thanks!


@dan0 i updated the pictures, is this board what you asking for or im missing something?
