I have not fixed too many controllers.

Have one that will not power on. Does get power from battery to board, I do see voltage at various points on the board. What should I be looking for?

Do the springs heat up?
I've had a no power problem after soldering a rapid fire mod on them and the batteries were heating up the springs. I didn't realise and they melted onto the plastic Very Happy
I de-soldered and re-soldered everything and it was ok. Make sure all the components are in good shape and there are no shorts or solder splashes.

No other suggestions. Is there a pattern of the components which give you power ?
