you will need replace the main thumbtack controller modules .

These are cubed /boxed type module with several soldering points which connect to the board itself .

they can be found on EBAY if no luck here ,I will add that the solder points are small so a thin point solder iron and fine solder reel will be required also

Also having this problem. I thought to replace the analog sticks, and while I'm waiting for the new ones to arrive in the mail I'd just use the D-Pad to still be able to navigate Netflix and the like.

After desoldering and removing both analog sticks, the problem persists - it constantly scrolls upwards in menus. I'm thinking the problem may be with the D-Pad buttons on the bottom motherboard. I don't think those can be replaced, short of replacing the entire bottom motherboard.


It is worth it to take the controller apart to check things out. I was having an issue with my controller drifting really heard to the down and right. I was ready to order a new one when I decided to crack it open and see what I could see.

I found that one of the vibration motors had come loose and was making the controller drift. I put it back in place, slapped it back together and its worked great ever since.

Bottom line: Take it apart and verify before someone tells you automatically that its bad. The things get dropped (OK thrown) and stuff happens. Take 5 minutes and you could save yourself $50.


When I am in a party it keeps scrolling up and I can't do anything option wise and it does it only on the party menu. How can I fix this


I have this problem aswell, have you found a fix?


Im reffering to the party menu only.

Hopefully you problem is already solved, but just for the record I will post this...

  • Connect controller to computer using USB
  • in Windows, press Win+R and type "joy.cpl" (without quotes)
  • in opened application select your controller and press properties
  • Press buttons on your controller to see if they are triggered correctly (in my case I was able to see that dpad is pressed permanently without me doing anything)

Above steps will help you diagnose what's wrong with buttons!

  • Once you know which buttons/dpad/thumbsticks/etc are affected you have to disassemble controller using iFixIt guides.
  • In my case (Xbox One Controller with Bluetooth) I had to reach motherboard with dpad because under dpad was white tape that was not accessible to easily remove... and I needed to do it to clean underneath (and metal "squares"). (this tape is needed, don't mess too much with it)

All the best

I think it is just with the Netflix app because I don't have this problem with anything else on my xbox one.
