New Arcadestick problems


I’ve liked fighting games for a long time but I’ve never invested in a new arcadestick until now. I bought a HORI Soul Calibur V (PS3) from Fry’s but the joystick seems to have issues. Down, DR, and Right work fine while fighting but everything else comes out as UL. Also, while in a menu (whether it be the PS menu or the game’s menu) menu I can use Up but left is still unresponsive.

Is there a way for me to fix this myself or is it better to take it back for being defective?

Right now it is used for SSFIV and Skullgirls.



return it to frys and get another one.

that’s the easiest way.
other ways would involve opening it and maybe replacing parts.
