Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3

Right analog stick appears normal, however...

Right analog stick on my dualshock3 controller appears normal, but when playing a game, the character begins to rapidly spin clockwise. Is there any way I can fix this to avoid buying a new controller?

    Already opened it and could not see anything obviously wrong. I used rubbing alcohol to go ahead and clean around the analog sticks on the inside, but it didn't solve the problem. Mainly just checking if any one has dealt with a similar issue and if it is repairable. Even buying replacement parts would probably be cheaper than buying a new controller.

You could open up the controller and find the source of the jam and get rid of it.

Ps3 controller manual


You plug in the usb cable to charge the controller and connect it to the ps3 for the first time. You use the left analog stick to move around the dashboard when the ps3 is turned on and the 'X' button to change settings, go to the online browser, playstation store, or start a game. You can back out by pressing 'O' or holding the 'PS' button, which allows you to change a controller number (say controller #1 to #2 with two controllers), turn off the system or turn off the controller. Press (not hold) the controller to look around the dashboard while in a game and select say "Quit Game', or go into settings and change something around to your liking. Every game also comes with the controls and for what the buttons are. (Stick on left is the, "Left Analog Stick," right is "Right Analog Stick," from right to left starting at the green triangle shaped button is the, "Triangle," "Circle," "X," and "Square," buttons. The four buttons on the left going in all directions is the D-pad, and the triggers on the back going from the top left to bottom left and top right to bottom right are, "L1," "L2," "R1," "R2").

I own a mad catz n64 controller and any time i push or hold any button (b,a, cs) it makes the character move slightly but endlessly to the right side, the control stick works fine, i only got this problem...


To remedy this, simply don't move the analog stick when powering on the system. When the system turns on, however the analog stick is set to be the default center so if it is moved, it is assumed to be the normal center position. If you have accidentally moved it while powering on the system, you can reset it but letting the analog stick reset to center and then press and hold START, L and R at the same time for three seconds.

The analog works fine in the options menu but when


Try calibrating your PSPs analog stick, here's how: 1. Go to Settings>System Settings 2. With the System Information screen displayed, rotate your analog stick in a circular motion (clockwise and counter clockwise). This will adjust the analog stick's range of motion. 3. Exit the Settings then run your game and test the analog stick. (it should be working well by now)
I hope this helps.

Xbox 360 controller left analog stick


If you bought it brand new, contact Microsoft ASAP.

Otherwise, no luck. Just an unfortunate side affect of playing a 360.

Right analog stick not working


Check the controls on the game's control section. If you play another game that uses the right analog control and it works on that game then it's the control set up for FIFA. Make sure that the analog control light is on when the game boots up. Sometimes if the analog control light is not on when you turn the game on and you turn it on afterwards, the analog stick controls don't work properly. That happened to me on NFS Pro Street. If this helped you leave feedback please. FIXYA!
