    I don't know the answer to your question but they're pretty easy to take apart and clean which might (aka probably) fix the problem.  If you're not averse to tinkering, there's also the option to try to repair and customize the controller yourself.  


    Hmmm.....I have a couple extra controllers and some Xacto knives.......


    Idea?

    They are relatively easy to clean. My dog, like many others, used to be absolutely terrified of the vacuum, but I've been trying hard to make it kind of a fun afraid, if that makes sense. I've been doing it for years, and these days she still doesn't like it, but doesn't hide and pee on my floor when I vacuum anymore. Just thought I'd explain that in order to justify what I'm going to say now: I decided it'd be a good idea to try to vacuum her one night when I was first toying with the idea and she hurdled my coffee table and knocked a big gulp onto my controllers. It was all sticky by the time I got it opened and got all the parts out that I needed to take out to clean it properly, and I still managed to do it and get everything back inside that needs to be inside. I'm sure if the controller is just constantly triggering the up direction there's probably some crud inside either causing the button to stick slightly or causing the piece underneath the button to depress. A cleaning probably would do the job.

    If I were looking for a custom controller I'd look online. Google custom playstation controllers for sale.
