Why is Joystick Always Stuck Holding One Direction?


#1

My joystick is always stuck holding the back direction. The weird thing is even when the back’s joystick microswitch is disabled (QD taken off that micrswotich) the joystick is still constantly holding back.

I’m using a Microsoft Xbox360 PCB.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like a short on the PCB, check the solder points on it and make sure the connections are clean.

Dangit that was what I was dreading…

I checked all the solder points and didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary.

Anyone else think they know why this is happening?
