Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My left analog stick doesn't work within any games but does work in the game menus. For instance, I can use it to select a car in burnout paradise by moving it left and right but in the game i can't steer. Any ideas?
SOURCE: analog stick
I had this problem to..........I took off the metal clasp on the joystick and continuly and forcefully rotated the joystick untill it moved in a smooth fashion then I replaced and it works fine.

if it works while youre on ur pip boy map then all you have t do is find a safe or door to pick the lock on. idk why and i know it sounds wierd but it worked for me i just picked the lock successfuly and it worked again.

you really cannot use your analog stick if you're at the menu. its really like that. i've had my PSP for years and i believe that there's no mod or configuration to do that. Sorry mate.

hi thanks for using fixya!
On this kind of error, I recommend that you bring your psp to a service center to further check that contol analog stick.

actually i had the same problem i also had a psp because my friend fried his i took his nub and put it into mine same both gen 100 psp but it was still stuck in the upward position making it an internal error in the psp itself not always the nub

the circular thing that lets it move freely probably cracked, making it harder to move. i had to buy a new controller because of this reason.
