I will assume that you are talking about the left side joystick which can move up/down/left/right and also can be pushed in to “click”. If this is correct, than the tact switch that is part of that assembly has failed. You need to replace the entire assembly. This can be purchased for around $10 and is the joystick and switch as one piece. If you can solder, you should be able to replace this. I have included a link to a representative part.
