I don't personally know of anywhere that will replace the stick. If it truly is broken as you say, you will need to purchase another one. After all, it is broken.

When I try to play a game (Call Of Duty WaW), it won't let me look up, and makes me spin around. I thought it maybe was the Look Inversion in the options, so I changed it, but then it only let me look to...


If you spin around that means the right stick is being pressed in a direction without you even touching it because of loss of calibration. There are some calibration utilities online but for the start you can let Windows calibrate your gamepad.

Open control panel -> classic view (on the left) -> Game Controllers -> Select your controller -> Properties -> Settings tab -> Select Calibration and follow the instructions. If during calibration you see that the right and/or left stick is being pressed in a direction, it is a hardware issue. In such cases replacing the controller is a better option. If it is still under warranty you can get it replaced. If you bought it from Game stop they do normally accept returns within a month or so.

There is one thing you can that sometimes works: Press the right stick towards right and turn it fast in a circle all the way through clockwise. Repeat it 3-4 times and then do it anti clockwise. It works for me each time my controller acts like that, I dont know how but it doesnt matter. Hope it works.

XBOX 360 NON-Wireless controller has me running around in circles


More than likely one of the microswitches inside the controler has colapsed, making it seem like you are always pushing the control that direction.. Also I have seen the wires pulled out of the top of the controller from people constantly wrapping the wire around the controller when not in use - this can damage the controller and make it act up as well.

Wireless xbox 360 controller


Hey Pete,

Xbox 360 controllers do not have that problem very often and you know what happens to me sometimes. I change the batteries and the controller still doesn't turn on. Turns out the batteries that i replaced had no juice on it. Make sure you are using the right kind of batteries too meaning don't cheap out and use the ones you get at 99c stores or anything like that. Those will work by the way they will not last more two days. Buy new batteries.

Wireless controller position


Try this:
Under heading "How can I change the screen positions for my wireless controllers?"
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/resources/supportfaq.htm

To reset the screen configuration for an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console and any connected Xbox 360 wireless controllers.

    (To turn off your wireless controller, power down the system and wait for the lights around the controller's Xbox Guide button to disappear.)
  2. Manually turn on your Xbox 360—don't use your controller's Xbox Guide button.
  3. Press the connect button on the front of your console. This is the small button just to the right of (or below, if your console is on its side) the port for Memory Unit B. The lights around the console's power button will flash as the console searches for a wireless controller.
  4. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn on the wireless controller that you want to assign to slot one.
  5. Once the controller is on and the lights are still circling the power button on the console, press your controller's connect button, located just to the right of the charge port.

    When the lights on your controller stop spinning, the wireless controller is configured to slot one and the upper-left quadrant light will glow.
  6. Select the controller you want in slot two and repeat steps 4 and 5. You can configure up to four wireless controllers.

Right Joystick. . .


I had this same problem with my 360 controller (after modding it, but the solution should be the same..) If you pull up on any 360 joystick it will stick the same way.

The quickest fix would be to take some sandpaper on the inside of where the joystick touches the controller shell, sand it down just enough so the joystick is moving smoothly.

More professional ways would be to cut the little piece of metal that sticks out and goes into the joystick. Just a very small amount, too much will make it hard to press the right thumbstick button.
You could also try some old fashioned grease, just a little bit on the inside, nothing noticeable from the outside.

Also make sure the controller is put back together right, I've taken apart many 360 controllers and sometimes joysticks stick when there's a wire in the wrong place and the shell won't close all the way. (The rumble motors particularly).
Hope this helped!
