Xbox One analog drift but not the usual one

Common problem, the right stick is drifting upwards. However…

I desoldered the right stick, turned on the controller and even physically without the stick it was still drifting. Then I installed a new analog (entire new unit not just the potentiometers), and it still drifts like if we were in the 90s.

Send help, no visual problems on the board, however the main motor red cable was desoldered when i opened it up, but i dont see how it may affect the controller in any serious way. Btw the controller emits rather quiet buzzing sound tho I heard it’s normal.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This is a problem with the specific build your xbox is on, I had this months ago on a preview build and it was fixed in the next couple updates, it's abysmal that microsoft even allowed this update to go out on the “Stable” update cycle. Literally game breaking. On a box designed to play games. Stupid. Just keep updating it gets patched out.

So you are saying that

I've been disassembling and reassembling this thing like an idiot this whole time for it to be a firmware error? lmao


Yeah, the problem is still present on PC and XBOX to this day so it's not the case i believe

Missing resistor or a broken trace can cause this issue.

Check for shorts in the near of the sticks
