Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller

Xbox 360 controller is disconnecting constantly, sometimes the left joystick will react to up and down and the light will go dim. I have to keep smacking it to get it to work again, but it only lasts a few seconds.

My left joystick keeps moving things down without me moving it


Sometimes your joystick on xbox controllers can become stuck. To fix this you can do one of two things. you can ether buy a can of air used to clean out computer keyboards and spray it inside the analog stick. Sometimes if that does not work you can also disassemble your controller with a t8 torc screwdriver. Ones disassembled use hot water on and below the analog stick to get rid of unwanted grim. This should fix the problem.

Wired xbox 360 controller's constantly 'disconnect'


It sounds like it needs replaceing. Sometimes Radio shack has the wireless Xbox360 controllers on sale for 40$ and Gamestop sells used ones for around the same price. Also wireless is much better.

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:

Wireless controller is constantly moving down


One of two things. First, when you turn on the power, do not have anything pressing against the joysticks. It will sometimes cause the problems you are describing. If that is not the case, I would assume you got something stuck under it or spilt something on it. Good luck.

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!
