Ball Top 4-Way Rocker Switch only works in 3 directions

by ksbdude on Fri Jun 11, 2021 2:04 am

I recently purchased a Ball Top 4-Way Rocker Switch https://www.adafruit.com/product/3758
Only 3 of the 4 directions that I move the joystick are working. It is not the wiring or software because I tried moving the wiring from one of the working directions to the direction that isn't working and it does not complete the circuit. So then I used a multimeter to do a continuity test on the contacts when I moved the joystick and only 3 of the 4 directions complete a circuit.

Is there anything else I can try? Thanks for any help.
