Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

Left thumb stick squeaks(?)

So i just got a brand new controller and a day or two after use i noticed the left stick squeaks - but only when moved around the 3 o'clock position, and only when it goes from that extreme back to the neutral position.

in other words it only squeaks when the stick's position travels from hard east (if you wanna think in those terms), passing the central (neutral) spot of the stick.

as you can imagine it's really annoying, since you use that stick to move around in any game, and id rather not have to avoid right turns.

should i take the controller apart or is this something i can approach externally with wd40 or something? thanks for the help.

The game controls on the left stick function the same as the right?


The left stick and right stick operate independantly. What they do would vary by game. For most first person shooters, the default is for the left stick to control looking left/right and moving. The other stick would control the other 2 (view up down/ moving on other axis).
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

How do u play a playstation3??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????


I don't quite understand your problem.If you mean you don't know the controles or either you can't turn it on.
GAME CONTROLES: If you don't understand the controles for a game in war games the fire button is usually the top right triger if to throw grenades top left triger to move is always left thumb stick to move the camera is right thumb stick. For racing games accelerate is usually these three ( X , top right triger or right thumb stick ). Football games to pass is X to tacle is SQUARE or CIRCLE, sprint is sometimes TRIANGLE ,shoot is SQUARE or CIRCLE.
TURN ON PS3:If it doesn't turn on when you press the on button.That maybe because there's a switch on the back of the PS3 that has 0 on one side and 1 on the other it's a power switch,or maybe a cable is lose.

hope these tips help.

If you bought it brand new, contact Microsoft ASAP.

Otherwise, no luck. Just an unfortunate side affect of playing a 360.

Sticky breaks


You probably have moisture in the brake fluid and calipers. If I were you, I would get a caliber rebuild kits (Just some seals) and clean them up. I didn't do that on my CB360t and the caliper ended up stuck with the front brake on. The caliper corroded so much that I needed a another one. If you clean it up now, it will work better and you won't need to replace as many parts. (and you won't get your brakes "frozen" on either)
