mayflash f300 is an affordable fighting stick that works on almost any platform. its universal feature, while useful, is not the easiest to set up. Therefore, some users, in the first instance, may have difficulty connecting their fightstick to their console or PC.
In this post, I’m going to list some of the most common reasons why your mayflash f300 isn’t working and how to fix them.

mayflash f300 not working or not connecting to console
One problem you might have is getting the stick to connect to your console. We’ll use the PS4 as an example here, but the setup will be similar for other platforms.
let’s quickly recall how to configure mayflash f300 on your ps4.
- first, turn on your ps4 controller. As usual this is done by pressing the home button
- then connect the mayflash f300 fightstick to the ps4 via usb cable
- finally you need a micro usb cable. the one you use to charge your ps4 controller. connect the micro usb part (usb type a) to the ps4 controller and the other end should connect to the usb port on the mayflash f300 fightstick.
You also need to make sure the toggle switches located on the top left of the toggle are in the correct position.
for consoles or if connecting via a controller, the leftmost switch should be in the controller position, indicated by the icon, and the middle switch should be set to dpad. then you need to press the home button on the mayflash f300 device.
This fixes most of the mayflash f300 detection problems. If you are still having problems, you may need to log out of your profile using the PS4 controller and then log back in. then you can press the home button again on the mayflash f300.
mayflash f300 doesn’t work with certain games
some users report that certain games do not work with their mayflash f300. the reason for this may be because the fightstick does not have the latest firmware and therefore needs to be updated.
how to update mayflash f300 firmware
updating mayflash f300 is not too difficult. you must first download the relevant files to your pc. you can do it from mayflash official website here: https://www.mayflash.com/support/download/
just make sure you download the software that applies to your fightstick, so in this case it will be: universal arcade fightstick f300.
once you have downloaded the corresponding file, you will need to run it. the on-screen instructions will tell you what to do. Simply connect the FightStick to your PC and hold down the Start button when the program has detected your FightStick. that should be it.
please note that this update can only be done on windows and not on mac. this is a bit annoying, but you could probably borrow a friend’s computer or, if you’re really tech-savvy, use a virtual machine to host an instance of windows and go from there.
hopefully this has fixed your mayflash f300. most of the time, it depends on the configuration. The fightstick being what it is, the setup is obviously quite complicated. while the instructions are not necessarily bad, they can be a bit confusing for the average user.
If you still have issues like a button not working or the joystick not feeling right, then it may be a hardware failure. however, don’t worry, because you can easily correct this by replacing the part in question with a better one. as a sanwa or seimitsu part. it’s not too hard.
That’s what I love about fightsticks, after all. I think the ability to modify and upgrade a fightstick is what makes them unique.
