Fixed, thanx. Real value is probably 4.7K. I fixed the picture too.

And one of the green thing capacitors is a 1H153K, three are 1H103K

All are 2A103K in NES paddle.

Wohoo! Stop modifiying the NES vaus! I thought there were much cheaper than the MSX ones.

I do not think he will sell at this price. We find many much cheaper and in better condition.
Anyway, I can not modify the controller without found a 4.7kΩ VR1 of same size.

Jipe,

Your circuit diagram has fewer components. Do has you simplified it?

I put many markers on the MSX PCB. Maybe it can help you to compare.

Could someone get me a scanned copy of the pcb in 300x300dpi?
I would like to rebuild the PCB but it schould be the same size of the original so it could fit in to the original housing in case someone has a broken version.

I'm searching something similar to build Paddle with "Arduino Pro Micro" and use with OpenMsx or other emulators
Do you know if exist any circuit\sketches ?

It will only work in openMSX if it gives mouse events, as in openMSX the paddle is emulated via mouse movements.

Of course I know.
But while for joystick or gamepad we have a lot of way to do that, for paddle it's very difficult.
I don't know if exist a cheap usb paddle, I've not found. So, the only way should be 1 potentiometer with 1 button connected to Arduino Pro Micro and then connect it to PC via USB. The Arduino pro micro should be see from PC like a Mouse, in this way is granted compatibility for different OS.

DIY version, worked fine after a capacitor was added to data pin output to remove shift register glitches.
