Dual shock controller 3 for PS3 joystick needs repair

I've had the dual shock controller for 2 months and the rubber sleeve
over the joystick (L) has split and separated off. The sharp plastic cap
underneath is shreading my thumb. Ouch. Can this rubber sleave be purchased.

    I have the same problem. Don't want to buy a new controller just because of that, so I was wondering where I could buy just this rubber part.



    If you happen to know, please feel free to e-mail me :marcelobl@gmail.com



    Thank you!!!

Hi there,
you will need a rubber replacement for your R1 button, if you or a friend have a defective joystick consider that a replacement. if you can't find a defective joystick you can buy a ps2 rubber kit online. below are reference pics.

1. Remove 5 screws with a philip screw at the back of the joystick.
2. Split the two covers with caution.ck
3. Carefully remove the rubber beneath the R1 button and replace it with a new one.
4. Put together the front and back part of the joystick.
5. Test the replaced part and screw if you're satisfied.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using Fixya..

Hi, This is happen because : 1. You may bought a non original controller. 2. You may always engage the vibration function. Sony dual stick controller ( analog stick) has fine cables inside controller. The imitation ones even smaller. While you use the vibration function for long time, it make some cables apart.
Suggestion :- Use only original dual stick controller ( analog stick). Don't engage vibration function for long time - I believe you can reconnect the wires inside controller ( so just fix it yourself) and play..

Need assembly instruction for gaggia titanium steam wand. doesnt seem to go far enough up the tube after i cleaned it


Slide the large sleeve off, now you have just the shorter plastic nozzle with the rounded cap. Unscrew that cap - hold the plastic nozzle with one hand while twisting the cap to unscrew it.
Inside is a hard plastic ring and a soft rubber sleeve. Sometimes the soft rubber sleeve will not come out of the nozzle - if so then just leave it in - but if it will come out, take it out and clean everything really well.
OK ... now put the cap on the steam pipe, then the hard plastic ring, then the rubber sleeve - and slide them up high enough on the pipe - then slide on the nozzle last. Then tighten the cap down on the nozzle until it is gripping good and tight. Then slide the long outer sleeve and you should be good to go.

Joystick sticking


You could try and take apart and clean moving parts, but usually its a quick fix that doesnt last. I suggest buying a new one.

PS2 Controller Joystick Problem During Gameplay


If you've had the controller a long time weird things can start happenning. Usually the pads on the joysticks go first.
Try a different joystick(borrow a friends) and if it still happens you'll know its not the controller.Could be a glitch in the software of the game.
Eliminate each area. If a friend has the same game use their disc to try your controller with.
Take your controller to the video game store ask them to try it out on their game display models.If it's "busticated" you can buy a new one right away LOL.
