My ps2 joystick L3 button stuck when i derict it to any direction .. it suppose to back into its center position but it doesn't it stuck and still unmoved untill i move it back to its original pos


I would suggest buying a new controller if you want to skip the hassle of trying to fix this one, but if you insist on keeping this controller, then there could be a way to fix it. First try your best to smoothly trace the joystick around in a circle, and see if that unsticks it. If this doesn't work, apart from buying a new controller the only other thing to do would be to open the controller up and put lubricant on the bottom of the joystick, this will most likely work, but you might damage your controller in the process.

Hi, When you set your joystick up using the in game controlls menu try this. Try setting the controls from the bottom up I will try to explain. Lets say in the controls menu from the top it starts like this> 1)Pitch forward 2)Pitch backward 3)Roll right 4)Roll left. Start with pitch backward and pull the joystick back, It should auto input the pitch forward control. Next you would move on to roll left, It should auto input the roll right control. Get what im saying, You should only have to input one direction the other should auto input. Had the same problem with my LG extreme pro for BF2. Hope this helps good luck!

I need calibration software for the logitec 3d pro joystick. will not maintain level flight in AP (flight sim ).


this was not originaly my post but i saved it.and it worked for me. HOW TO CALIBRATE THE LOGITECH EXTREME 3D PRO JOYSTICK
I just figured out how to calibrate this joystick. I am using Windows XP. I assume it will work with all Windows operarting systems though.

Go to Control Panel, click on "Game Controllers", or however you get to your joystick settings. Hold down the "Ctrl" (control key) and the "Shift" key together - at the same time, THEN click your mouse on the "Properties". This should take you to a different calibration screen that you would get to without holding the two keys together. IMPORTANT - Click on the "Test" tab first. If you go to the settings tab first, it likely will not work. Without doing anything else after clicking on the "Test" tab, next click on the "Settings" tab. Then click on the "Calibrate" button below. Click "next". Click the thumb button on the left side of the joystick which should bring you to another screen. Then follow the prompts......
* On the "axis calibration", move your joystick in full circles, making sure the "+" symbol moves around the far margins of the square. After a few complete circles, click the "next" button with your mouse.
* On the next screen, click the left button on the joystick again, which should bring you to the next screen. Move the throttle lever back and forth a few times. Then click "next" again.
* On the "Z rotation screen", move the joystick to the left and right (rotate it) a few times. Then click "next" and then "finish" then "ok". Thats it. It should be calibrated now. Hope this helps everyone with problems.

Left joystick sticks


Sounds like the joystick is sticking, the only thing you can do would be to take apart the joystick and with a slightly damp washcloth, and clean off the joystick. Then after you clean all the stickiness off, put the joystick back together and the screws back on and it should react like normal.

Courtesy of Ehow here is the link that gives instructions on how to take apart the controller:

Game will not recognize the joystick.


If it doesnt work, then try the controller. If the controller works, then just use that. Sometimes the system does not recognize the joystick.

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!
