Why does my analog stick on my controller drift to the right?

I was not able to place under xbox one controller catagory, only gave me the elite one. I purchased a Xbox one design lab controller and anytime I play cod bo4 my analog stick drifts to the bottom right of the screen. I tried contacting Microsoft but they refuse to help and even place my warranty left on another one I purchased also from the design lab and that one works great no drift at all! I just would love to fix it or get it fixed properly as I'm so done with the employees at Microsoft.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you jiggle it around, does it stop or does this go on forever?

Yes it doesn't stop it will continuously drift and when playing split screen his controller will make mine do it instead of just move normal.

@conwaytwitty … this is a common issue for controllers given time. this is caused by either the joysticks housings internal bands being broken or stretched out or dust or debris preventing the joystick from returning to neutral position. you can follow this guide to gain access to the internals of your device:

Xbox One Wireless Controller Teardown

from here, you can try and clean the joystick and housing with isopropyl alcohol and see if this corrects the issue. if this does not, or you find that the plastic bands are stretched or broken, youll want to replace the component. you can find the parts here:

here is a guide on the soldering process. ( youll need tools and experience) easy to damage the motherboard so take to a local shop if unprepared. prices and shops vary but shouldnt be mor than 60 bucks or so.

I guess I charge too little $30 AUD for joystick replacements haha.

i usually charge 40...not far off with conversion..or do i have that backwards? others really do charge around that 60 mark ive found but i feel for the job its a bit to greedy. no judgment though. they may need to put more time in it or other variables.

by

That's 20 USD I would be charging if I converted AUD to USD.

oh wow...ok had it backwards... i always strive to keep costs low as possible myself, i may do a time study and see about knocking it down in the future. gotta stay competitive for the area number one, but making sense for the repair in costs is another. i typically follow the 2 third rule...cost of repair vs cost of new device.

Id rather not have conversion rates.. And just pay CAD
