Introduction

The circuit board in the headset adapter relays information between the buttons on the adapter, the controller, and the headset. If the headset or adapter have lost their functions, then you may need to replace the circuit board. The circuit board consists of two parts connected to each other by a group of wires.

Insert the flat edge of a metal spudger in the seam between the adapter body and the plastic casing. Move the spudger into one of the corners. Push down on the spudger to separate the casing from the adapter until you hear a click and the casing stays open on that side.
