Introduction

The controller's joystick is connected to a sensor via sliding plates, which then move two knobs(one per axis), which are placed inside two pots whose movement the sensors detects. The knobs can occasionally get dislodged out of the pots, causing a "stuck" and undetected joystick.

Parts

No parts required.

Turn the controller over, exposing the three screws on the back. Use a 6mm screwdriver to remove these screws. Carefully slide and pull the two parts of the controller shell apart, exposing the innards. Carefully slide and pull the two parts of the controller shell apart, exposing the innards.
