Joystick Acting up

Recently I’m noticing some slight resistance when i try to move my joystick around accompanied by a slight kind of squeaking noise. It doesn’t affect my inputs much and it still seems to read fine but it feels off. I was wondering if anyone has any idea what the problem might be and if so how to fix it. I would really appreciate any help. I’m using a Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK.

You should first open the joystick up and check the spring for any odd dents. If it is all good then put it back in and see if it still makes the same noise. Otherwise buy a new spring.

You can try I believe a new spring is about 2-4 bucks a pop.

Thanks i’ll give that a look see when i get some time later.
