Hi there
My son is very very cleaver not to mention upset. I came home to see him with his Xbox controller deformed and him in tears. He said that he was trying to do the led mod on the jewel, well trying to take the jewel out, I think it was that any way. I donít have any LEDS and heís too young to even know which ones to buy. He had used a hairdryer to try and melt it out and in the process has melted the front panel of the controller so it doesnít screw on. So I am asking if anyone is selling a broken original Xbox controller or has the front cover at least. Then I will put it back on for him. If heís lucky I will do the LED mod for him. This is why I donít let him touch my Xbox, well I let him press the power button, and Iím not that tight. So give us a e-mail.
Thank you people
Tob3z

First of all, I think it's awesome that you care about your son that much. I also think it's great that both you and your son play XBOX laugh.gif

Your best bet for finding a controller on XS is by staking out the buy and sell thread...You can also check ebay for some controllers

best of luck, if not, i'm sure some people who post follow ups below me will suggest some sites or even decide to sell you theirs

Just out of curiousity, how old is your son?

Sounds like you have a budding electrical engineer on your hands!

Sorry to take over the thread... but I am in the EXACT same situation. I tried to bake the paint onto my controller (only the top half) and I left it in for about a min too long sad.gif
