Why does my controller "stick" as if it is being pressed up/sideways

When I try to use one of my controllers it acts like I am pushing the L3 or R3 button a certain way. It does not always do this, but it has gotten to the point where I have quit using that controller.

Also, the controller never had anything spill on it, or is it sticky.



Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Controllers often gain this trait, especially game controllers. There could be some broken stalks from the triggers on the inside of them, causing friction and pressing down the button internally. You could disassemble the top portion and see if there is anything of the sort. There should be some guides here on iFixit that show you how to disassemble it without much hassle!
