はじめに

The HTC Vive controller front panel buttons may be worn or can't click from extended use. This could cause functionality problems during use. When removing buttons be careful not to tear the rubber pinholes. This guide will show you how to replace the front panel buttons.

    Where can I buy new t5 21 mm screws? Mine are getting stripped out!

    My top saucer was REALLY stubborn. Don’t force it with your hand, use the spudger to separate it at the seam. Try not to poke your spudger in too deep, there are internals just inside the seam.

    The second time around, I learned why it was so stubborn. The picture suggests that you should start at the base of the saucer and work your way around, but that’s backwards.

    Start separating with your spudger at the distal side of the saucer and work your way toward the handle. Then for the last part, pull the piece up and away, like peeling a banana. See the second picture for the bottom half of the saucer, below. Do the same on the top.

    You do not need to remove these screws to remove the bottom saucer. They provide stability to the two halves of the donut.

    I had the same experience. Putting the screws back in made the bottom shell easier to remove.

    I found the re-assembly of this difficult until I concentrated on two areas - the lugs which go into the handle first, then the central ring. My earlier concern was for the optical sensors on the wings but these snapped into place easily as the central ring was manoeuvred.

    Leave the middle screw where it is (the one being unscrewed in the picture). That screw holds the two halves of the photodiode assembly together, not the case.

    You do not have to remove the ribbon cables from the plugs…you can carefully work the battery holder around them and remove it…being very gentle. And the black part of the handle will stay attached to the cables and be in the way. But removing the cables does make it easier to access the area for the battery, just not completely necessary.

Okay great! But where can I buy replacement parts?

Colton Hoffman - 返信

Thanks for the guide! Even though iFixit doesn’t have the replacement parts, I was able to fix my button that was off-center and get my controller back up and running! The only issue is that with step 5, the T5 screwdriver that comes with the iFixit tool kits doesn’t work, as it’s too wide. I had to go out and buy a narrower driver, but still much less expensive than the controller. Thanks again!

I had my front panel TOUCHPAD STUCK, in the sense it could sense my thumb touch, but NOT my thumb press on the upper-right part (presses on the other directions were detected). I figured out how to fix it:

The touchpad presses are detected by a little sensor on the controller: it’s the little pink button we can see on the picture of Step 8 on the dark-blue board. This button is pressed when pressing the touchpad, via a little black round plastic thingy behind the very center of the touchpad : we can see it on the top of picture of Step 11, the little black circle. If this black circle is off-center or simply *too low*, the contact with the pink button will not happen properly. I personnaly got the black circle thingy off, placed another thin layer of material below it (of approximately the size of the thingy) and placed it back, so it would be more in contact with the pink button. Solved on my both controllers !

Thanks for this really good guide which helped me solve this !

Hi! My ribbon cable to the touchpad is damaged. Does anyonw know whre to buy a replacment? Seems like it’s soldered to the rumblepack also.

Andreas Andersson - 返信

I replaced the little disc that Jesuis Une was talking about with a piece of PTFE used for mouse skates. The disc is 5/32 or 4.0 mm. I used a punch to knock a piece of 0.6 mm PTFE from the excess edging and it works like a charm.
