I have this problem too. There is nothing to be done accept buy a new controller. They are purposefully made like that so you spend more money.

The clone controllers are all crap - I don’t care if it’s licensed by Microsoft. It may be repairable if you replace the analog sticks, but it’s usually a board issue with those things. Even if you can, the parts usually cost more then the controllers in many cases.

Try the sticks and see - if you keep having trouble recover the new sticks and scrap the controller since the board is dead. Unless you absolutely cannot afford better, it’s better to stick to 1st party controllers, or something like the Elite Series 2. Scuf makes one with similar features, and it’s based on the 1st party Xbox controllers.

Try to avoid the Elite Series 1 - it’s based on the 1697 with modifications and 1697’s are known to have analog stick issues - just fewer then the 1537.

powerA cheaper and has the same mods as elite series 2 but for 80 minus the tuneing

@Noah Vail And with more issues on the bad ones. I've never used a good aftermarket controller and have pretty much avoided them outside of the ones I own or when I HAVE to get one. Now if it's significantly cheaper with something like the paddles I can see trying to get along with one, but it's generally not going to last anywhere near as long. If you can get a cheap Series 1, it may be worth a look.

That said at least the licensed ones are better quality (that's about the best I can say positive about them), but they're still about as bad as the MadCatz ones used to be.

I just got a PowerA controller literally after my PDP controller joystick was broken by my niece..but the pdp joystick is literally just loose which makes sense…NOW..what makes no sense is that i got a new controller played it on the simple games basically barely used the %#*@ thing and the controller is not loose..it just barely registers movement..simple answer Do not buy that brand until they get their sheet together lol..

PDP Controllers ARE The only ones to buy..literally never had an issue with it other than my niece breaking the joy stick after a year of Mortal Kombat and DBD mind you.. so the best as far as i know -_- i guess i can try and take this crap apart and fix it (but its only been a month or two..like what the fudge.

Solved the issue..And My goodness.. the Joystick was defective..like literally should not have been used..i only found out it was defective because i opened the controller..Luckily i has another controller with a non (defective joystick) so i switched the two and now it works fine..I assume it is made in a warehouse so some defective parts could enter into the mix..but jeez very annoying :/

P.S: the only reason my PDP could not be fixed is because there are two screws that i have tried A LOT of methods and nothing has worked on the two screws..even tried to pry it but no luck.
