    Hello..I was trying to replace the left analog stick of my ps4 controller and while heating the solder pads with a hot air gun I burnt the connector circled in the picture. I need help in identifying the component and also from where I can get it. If not possible then please let me know if there's an alternative.
    Thanks IMG-20191219-WA0002.jpg

    I doubt Sony used ‘off the shelf’ parts. Heck, all their solder joints dried or cracked through the 80s & 90s. The individual connectors pitch might match some readily available multi pin connectors, but they may not mate/lock together.
    If I were you, I would buy a broken/ non working controller and re-use the connectors, cables, switches etc. OTOH, you can always change both for ‘off the shelf’ multi connectors. Yes, a PITA but doable.
