The audio port on your Xbox Controller could have connection issues with audio devices or not provide any sound at all. If this is occurring it might be necessary to replace the 3.5 mm audio port. This guide will teach you how to access and remove the 3.5 mm audio port on your Xbox One Wireless Controller Model 1708.

  1. Slide the battery cover toward the top of the controller to remove it. Lift up  the batteries or the battery pack from the battery compartment.
    • Slide the battery cover toward the top of the controller to remove it.

    • Lift up the batteries or the battery pack from the battery compartment.

  2. Insert a plastic opening tool into the top seam, and  gently work the opening tool to the bottom of the controller. Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.
    • Insert a plastic opening tool into the top seam, and gently work the opening tool to the bottom of the controller.

    • Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.

    • Repeat this process for the second side plate.

    Only use a pry tool! The vibration motor wires are exposed and directly accessible from the side when opening. I attempted to open it with a small knife, expecting to be able to gently pry the clips open, accidentally sliced through my right motor’s wires.

    • Remove the five 9mm torx-9 security screws from the back of the controller.

    Torx-8 security bits work as well.

    jahiamir - Antwort

    Torx 8 or 9 wasn’t working. I used 2.0 minus screwdriver

    richjlee - Antwort

    The 2.0 minus worked for me as well.

  4. Orient the controller so the front plate is facing up. Lift the front cover off of the controller.
    • Orient the controller so the front plate is facing up.

    • Lift the front cover off of the controller.

  5. Turn the controller face down and gently lift the rear plate.
    • Turn the controller face down and gently lift the rear plate.

    Reassembly: When placing the back cover on: notice that the battery terminals need to slide inside the cover first. Then compress the triggers slightly, Then the cover will be aligned correctly. Then add the front cover and add screws so it doesn’t come undone.

  6. Turn the device over and remove the directional pad by gently pulling it away from the controller.
    • Turn the device over and remove the directional pad by gently pulling it away from the controller.

    It needs to be made a little clearer that the thin metal retaining ring needs to be unclipped before pulling on the D-pad. A small, flatbladed screwdriver did it nicely for me.

  7. Pull the joysticks off of the controller.
    • Pull the joysticks off of the controller.

    Are the joystick potentiometers soldered to the mother board or just push fit, this guide doesn’t mention soldering so I’m assuming the latter?

    Can you get genuine replacement joystick potentiometers as I’ve only seen cheap eBay type ones?

    Alan - Antwort

    The actual joysticks themselves are soldered into the bottom motherboard.

  8. If the rumble motors fall out of frame, the wires may disconnect from the motherboard . The wires will have to be soldered to reattach the motor.
    • If the rumble motors fall out of frame, the wires may disconnect from the motherboard . The wires will have to be soldered to reattach the motor.

    • Turn the device over and remove the two 70mm torx-6 screws in the bottom left and right corners.

    What if you don’t care about the rumble motors (always turn that feature off anyway), can I just leave them unattached?

  9. Firmly grasp the top and bottom motherboards in opposite hands, then gently pull them apart.
    • Firmly grasp the top and bottom motherboards in opposite hands, then gently pull them apart.

    • The top motherboard is still connected to the bottom motherboard. To fully separate the top motherboard, you will need to use a soldering iron.

    Soldering is not necessary for separation as on the top motherboard it uses a small connector commonly used in wireless assemblies for antennas. Simply pop it of using any prying tool or just your hand but make sure it is the side that has a gold or brassy finish and not a solder joint.

    Wyatt Faught - Antwort

    Hey Wyatt,

    Thanks for the feedback. I was on the team that authored this guide. I did not work on this specific guide so I am not familiar with this specific connector. I will follow up with iFixIt and check this issue. Thanks for the comment!

    Dylan Gross -

    Wyatt is correct that the black wire in the center can be removed from the top motherboard, but it doesn’t do any good to do so as there are two other sets of wires (grey and black twisted pairs leading to the left and right trigger) preventing you from removing the bottom motherboard entirely. These wires are visible in the pictures of this guide.

    Frank Buccella - Antwort

    I accidentally broke the part where the black wire connects to. Do I need to buy the top motherboard to fix this problem?

    drakeswifer -

    I can further confirm this as I have just pulled one apart. No soldering iron required.

    Brandon - Antwort

    What's is the name of the part for wireless on the controller

    justin edge - Antwort

    You'll see..

    Kajus Slekys -

    In my controller that black cable (the antenna like) was separated form the board is there any way to solder it again (the socket is still conected to plug)

    Dominik Gałczyński - Antwort

    I have the same problem. It popped off the board when firm pressure was applied to reconnect the wire after a repair. I'm going to attempt to apply a small bead of solder to the part that popped off, press it in place, and then heat the connector with my iron. But I am not hopeful at all. It's tight, really tight, and if it works it will be through luck alone.

    Michael Broder -

    Any luck? Theres no pad to get the solder to stick to on mine. Im assuming it is the j1 connection. Any idea what this wire is for?

    Matt Gribbin -

    Same issue here. I tried to unplug the antenna connector but the weak solder joints disconnected from the top motherboard instead. Looks like it has couple of bigger solder pads for ground/shielding(?) and one tiny pin in the middle for the actual antenna which can maybe still connect by pushing in place? Looks like a very difficult solder job as everything is so tiny.

    Kari Söderholm -

    Can someone help to find out the actual name of RF connector type?

    mntlzr - Antwort

    Hi i destroy black wire connector on top board please help me.

    Mohsen Heidary - Antwort

    It’s IPEX 4 connector, i've ordered bunch on chinese site and replaced mine. It was hard but doable.

    mntlzr -

    mntlzr : Thanks a lot for the connector type. More specifically it seems to be IPEX 4 SMD female socket on the top motherboard.

    Kari Söderholm -

    Hi yellow tape on board what

    Mohsen Heidary - Antwort

    How does the black wire reconnect? And is it necessary?

    Craig McBeth - Antwort

    I just put my controller back together (I opened it just to clean all the buttons since my son spilled some juice on it) and it seems to work wirelessly (with a PC using the dongle that came with the controller) even having broken the small black antenna cable connector off from the top motherboard. Not sure what that cable is used for or is it just an additional antenna for better connectivity. At least my controller still seems to work fine wirelessly without that cable being connected even from several meters away from the computer.

    Kari Söderholm - Antwort

    Actually nvm. Now that I tried the controller for a second time on the next day it seems to disconnect all the time so wireless is not working properly. I’ll need to try to fix the antenna cable by soldering. Probably will order a replacement connector (IPEX 4 SMD female socket) and try to solder that on.

  10. Remove the audio port from the bottom mother board. Remove the audio port from the bottom mother board.
    • Remove the audio port from the bottom mother board.

    Can you just leave out the audio port and use the controller or u have to have a replacement to play

    Itachi Uchiha - Antwort

    Why would you *need* the audio port? If you are happy to not use then fine, this is an instructional to get it working and by extension a headset one would assume.

    Ali J -

    This piece is just placed in there - sandwiched between the two motherboards. No adhesive, no mechanical attachment, nothing.

    Andrew Sauk - Antwort

    So can it be replaced or no? I took it out it dont look fried or anything but it still dont work when reinstalled

Where do I get a replacement audio port?

cory steers - Antwort

Hey Cory,

Sorry, didn’t realize that the part wouldn’t get listed for the guide. I looked around a bit and I would say that it seems the best place to pick these up is ebay.

I found one on there from a reputable seller for $3:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Repair-Part-3-5...

The seller seems to sell a good amount of these.

Hope that helps!

Dylan Gross -

Anyone know the pin out for this part? I want to just hard wire in a female 3.5mm jack - the way they built this controller is just bad design.

emb - Antwort

u can get these on Amazon. i ordered a 3-pack of replacement audio jacks that came with the two security screw drivers and a pry tool. $12 free shipping.

Kaladin - Antwort

I removed the 3.5mm jack, cleaned the contacts with a fibre glass contact cleaning brush, and then cleaned both the audio connector and the gold plated PCB pads with IPA, reassembled, and everything worked perfectly. Thanks for the guide, it’s boarder line perfect ;-)

Paul Hough - Antwort

so is the port not soldered onto the board? i have two new controllers my kids purchased that are having issues with the audio port and wonder if the connection is just lose, if it isn’t soldered into place.
