Flash. Put it on charge and got other one pressed ps and nothing. Tried everything. Swapped battries swapped the ribbon still nothing. Took the board out and looked at it under the light and noticed crossion (green powder) used a cotton bud with some after shave and cleaned it all up. Put it back together and thought naa it wont work. Then i saw all the lights flashing and i thought oh maybe its the other pad. So i tried other pad and thats working. Its currently on charge well both are.
So if anyone has same problem and you habe tried what others have mentioned, try my solution and if it dont work then buy a used one.
Hope this helps people out.
O I defiantly getting a used one just to make shore my money doesn't go back to the ones that ripped me off . Anyway I have cleaned it , reset it ,new battery , etc I take care of my stuff it cost to much not to . It' s just Japan knock offs to begin with ( Sony ) .
