Guide on how to disassemble GCW Zero?
« on: November 24, 2017, 12:19:50 am »
Like the topic says, I'm looking for a guide on how to take it apart. I know there's a wiki but it seems to be shut down (?) and even with the wayback machine I can't get to the disassambly page. The reason I'm looking for it is just cause someone dropped my GCW Zero and now the R button doesn't work. It's not stuck, it still moves when I press it but it doesn't register on any menus, games, or the hardware test.  Hoping it's just the rubber pad that needs to be fixed on the inside. Anyone have any tips for where to start taking it apart, or even where to get replacement contacts for buttons?

Looks like other snapshots have what you need: https://web.archive.org/web/20160809180238/http://wiki.surkow.com:80/GCW_Zero_Disassembly

Surkow's still working on getting it back online.

Thanks, I just took it apart and I think I found the problem. One of the wires on the R button came off, so it looks like I'm going to have to do a little soldering. I'll update later if that doesn't fix the problem.

I'm hoping to get a full set of the d-pad,abxy buttons, and analog nub from the fine folks over at Shapeways and have a quick question?  Is it possible to remove the front part of the shell without completely disassembling everything?  If so then great, if not then I'll try to be careful when disassembling it?  Thank you and have a good day!

Best Regards,
Justin
