    sticky analog stick?

    Post by joeclone on Wed Aug 01, 2012 6:55 pm

    one of my sticks on my ps3 controller is sticking up always up always on a ledge where up is down.

    so i figured i could spray it with baby powder to lube it up. i would really rather not have to take the controller appart.

    has anyone else ever had this problem and if so, have a working solution?

    Buy a new one?

    Or take it apart and clean the pieces.

    Opening the controller up and cleaning the pieces is probably the best solution. Just as long as you're gentle with the controller, that is. I suggest at least trying it. It's really hard to clean the pieces properly without taking the controller apart.

    Also, try to search something like "How to clean a PS3 controller" on Youtube. I'm sure there are some tutorials to help you.

    Well if you don't want to take it apart or buy a new 1, your best bet is wave your wand at it and say repairo..... :roll:

    Bite the bullet and take it apart.

    ^ that baby powder will gum up almost certainly. Could try graphite but then there's a whole mess of other problems possible.
