Sounds like it was dropped or had something spilled into it. The motion control joystick or the arrow butttons are messed up. I bought a second wireless unit, tried it out and took the batteries out and put it away in a drawer. If the main unit goes bad, I'll have a backup. They can be found for around $30, which is less than a lot of games that end up being duds.

Sounds like a calibration issue. It can also be a hardware problem in which case you will be better off buying a new controller. You haven't clearly mentioned exactly what brand your controller is. Is it Logitech or Microsoft brand? It is for PC or XBOX?
If its Microsoft brand and for PC you can try calibrating it from Control Panel -> Game Controllers -> XNA Gamepad -> Properties -> Settings -> Calibrate.
If this is only happening in Halo 3, go to the start-menu and look for profile settings, or check the in-game pause menu ( while playing ) and search for your controller settings. You should see a section that says "Vertical/Horizontal Sensitivity" or something close to that. Change it to a higher setting and you should be able to move your aim/sight faster.
Note: This will not increase how fast you walk/run.
If this does not work, you can attempt to open your controller ( remove batteries first ) and check the joystick for any junk that might be preventing full movement. ( this will void your controller's warranty if it has one )
Depends on how long you are playing. Usually I play a couple hours a
night and my rechargeable battery pack last awhile till I have to
switch it out. You can usually tell when the battery is getting low, a
light starts to circle around the on/off button on the controller.
I finally gave up and called the Geek Squad at Best Buy. I took it in for them to look at and after only 5 minutes, the very helpful young man said it was not working properly and suggested I return it and get a new one. So far everything works GREAT!!!!!
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.
