I've been having issues with my left analog stick on my wireless controller.
Not only is there a drifting issue in the up direction, but there is another odd issue. I've noticed that sometimes when I move the analog stick from down position immediately to the up position, sometimes games don't register me holding all the way up. It's as if I am only pushing upwards halfway. However, it the eventually registers.
Then there is the issue of going from an upward position to downward position. This also does the same thing where sometimes it acts as if I am only moving the analog stick halfway down when I am actually holding it all the way. However, when I do this...it doesn't eventually register...it just keeps doing that unless I move the stick around.
And what makes this weirder is that this problem isn't consistent. It doesn't always happen. It probably happens approximately 1 out of 8 times I do it.
So I have a few questions...
Does anyone know what could cause this? Is there an easy fix for it that I can do myself (easy as in not having to solder anything)? And what is the warranty on a wireless controller? (I've had this controller for less than a year.)
