    Thanks for the response FinnAquaBoy but i forgot to mention how it became like that. Pulling on it broke it. If there is a replacement part I can buy where can I get it?

    I've already bought a new one but have 2 controllers that were broken the same way. :(

You can take it apart and see if you spilled somthing in it like soda, clean the contact with rubbing alchol and a microfiber cloth , then put it back together and see if it will work, ohter wise its cheaper to buy a new one than have it fixed , also never buy a used controler

Left analog stick My Xbox left analog stick does


Analog stick might be bad and may need replaced. If you don't feel comfortable tearing it apart, you may want to look into a new / used one.

Left analog stick drifting left


Hello Iwn666,

There could multiple things wrong, and hopefully nothing serious. Here is a complete list of some problems and solutions that can be wrong with the analog stick.

1. The Left analog stick may be sticky. If you eat greasy foods while playing your Xbox 360 console, try to avoid this from now on. Grease from food particles may slip into the analog stick, and make it sticky, causing the analog to move constantly to one fixed position. Please look at the next problem and solution ahead before attempting to remove your controller with a screwdriver. Here is a complete guide on how to access the inside of an Xbox controller.

----------

2. There may be a simple glitch in configuration. Try turning off your Xbox 360 controller by holding the Xbox Guide button for approx 4 seconds untill a menu comes up. Select "Turn off controller". After doing so, try turning on your controller again. If the problem persists, there may be a greasy analog stick, or an object that broke that holds the analog stick together. Go back to problem/soltution #1.

When I push my right analog stick to the left, the screen keeps moving even when i don't move my analog stick. Is there something wrong with my controller?


Hi,

Theres might be a problem with the controller. You can open the controller check the rubber and clean it or it it still has a warranty you can ask them to fix it or perhaps replace it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i fix my xbox 360 e73??


When turning on the Xbox 360, a red light would be flashing at the fouth section of the Ring of Light. You should then recieve a ghost screen indicating an error E 73.
You recieve a screen error E 73 and section 4 of the RoL flashing red. This type of error was caused by a General Hardware Error relating to the Ethernet Port not functioning correctly or became faulty and unable to operate even with or without an Ethernet Cable connected to this port. The secondary code would be identified as 1021 for faulty ethernet port. I believe that there is no fix at the moment. If you encounter this error, I would suggest call 1-800-4MY-XBOX or visit www.xbox.com/support
The specific type of hardware error can be determined by these hidden codes:
0001, 0002, 0003, 0010, 0011, 0012, 0013, 0020, 0021,0022, 0023, 0030, 0031, 0032, 0033, 0100, 0101, 0102, 0103, 0110, 0200, 0203, 1000,1001, 1002, 1003, 1010, 1011, 1012, 1013, 1020, 1021, 1022, 1023, 1030, 1031,1032, 1033, 1100, 1444 and up

  • Note: There is known to be a temporary fix for this problem but is not recommended if the device still has available warranty on it. Doing so will avoid it's warranty, thus for you will pay $100 if sent for repair.
The Sticks Method:
  • Requirements: Xbox 360 (Power Cable and Composite/Component/HDMI Cable), two sticks (Like toothpicks, swabs)
1.) Turn off your Xbox 360 and unplug everthing.
2.) Get two sticks (Something like toothpicks or something that could fit in the back of the Xbox 360.
3.) Insert each stick to jam the two fans at the back of the Xbox 360 to prevent it from spinning.
4.) Plug back cables (Power and Cable connecting to TV; the RRoD will not appear unless the cable to the TV is connected).
5.) When RRoD appears (One Red Light), wait for about 10 to 15 minutes or maybe less for the Xbox 360 to overheat.
6.) At this point, you should get two red lights (Resembles Overheating Error) so remove the two sticks so that the fans will spin in an increased speed. After a few seconds, the Xbox 360 will turn off to cool down (RRoD will still appear).
7.) Unplug only the cable connected to the TV. You can unplug the power cord if you want to. Then let it cool for about 30 minutes or so (Feel the Xbox 360 if it's cool or still warm)
8.) Replug all wires and turn your Xbox 360 on.
The Xbox 360 should now be able to boot to your Xbox Dashboard. I don't know how this fix works but it's only temporary. Note that doing this continually would cause it to now work even if you try to redo this fix again and again. Doing so would make other hardware components to fail permanently such as the GPU for example.

If this first temporary fix did not work, do the second method: The Towel Trick. You can find the tutorials in Youtube. Again, this is not recommended if you have warranty left and never do this continually. Your Xbox 360 would completely and permanently fail after that. if it doesnt help after all this....I suggest sending it to Microsoft for repairs
