Fightstick SE - Broken wire?

Well I recently installed an octo gate and upon reassembling everything I had no movement from the joystick.

I looked at the microswitchPCB and that looked fine so I’ve concluded it must be the black wires that go into the stick on the side.

Anyone know anything else to check and if that is the problem can I get a replacement wire or even fix this one?

Your Switch is set to RS instead of DP?

Nope second thing I checked, should have put that in the OP sorry.

Does the Down Direction work?

There’s no movement at all

How odd it springs to life out of nowhere =/

Things always work after I reply to a Thread.
It is weird happen.

stop using jesus arcade stick powers on people for your amusement?
