My controller battery mustbe finished as if it's disconnected from the console it immediately goes off and won't come back on. Is it possible to replace the controller battery? Wouldn't mind but it's only around a year old and hasn't had much use. A replacement appears to be around 40. Bugger. :thumbdown:

I took mine apart as the L1 was reall sticky and gammy, but I struggled putting the mechcanism back in and then gave up. Really annoying as I can't physically do it. They arent the easiest thing to do :/
