Microsoft XBOX360 D-PAD Problem

My D-PAD on my wired Microsoft 360 Controller is becoming unresponsive on the right and left side, Is there anyway to fix this?

Try cleaning the inside first. Also take pictures afterwards just in case cleaning alone does not work so we can see what’s going on.

When cleaning use a #2 pencil eraser and rub down the d-pads contact points to the button. Then clean it up with some alcohol.

Try Opening it up and cleaning the points.
I think ur gonna need torx screwdriver

How’d things go? Did you get a chance to clean it up?

Im not gonna use a pencil eraser

Hahha why? I’ve fixed probably over 10,000 cellphones and small electronics that way… actually way more then that…

Good luck though…
