Probably not if the internal electronics were damaged, but try resyncing your console with the controller before writing it off :-)

Xbox 360 analog stick problem.

You could try to disassemble the controller and reseat the stick, but the stick might be faulty. If so, try to look on eBay for a replacement, or at a game repair store, if there is one near you.

Ok so my controllers right joy stick always makes the camera point down making it hard to aim the weapons

Can you change options on the set up screen of the game. Most of them let you reverse the direction the stick works in so you can make the camera move up instead.

Wireless controller joy stick actions have reversed on the right joy stick, so when your on COD 2 and you want to raise your rifle, when you push the joy stick up the rifle is now depresssing instead of...

You or one of your mates has inverted your controller, I am not familiar with the game, you need to get on the startup screen of the game, select options, then controller, then swop the invertion, if this was one of your mates it makes a change from swopping the language to chinese.
Remember to thumbs up if this helps.

My xbox 360 controller right analouge stick sticks going up and right on cod 4 and i cant get it to reset

If it's been pushed really hard or perhaps dropped, it's possible that one of the solder joints has broken. Each analog control has two potentiometers (variable resistors) mounted at right angles. Possibly it wasn't soldered well in the first place but worked for awhile just from mechanical contact. But after awhile, a little oxide forms and a sheerly mechanical contact without solder fails.

If you or a friend are handy at soldering smalls things (i.e. 15W-25W soldering iron, tin/lead solder), you can open the controller with a small crosspoint screwdriver. One of the screws is probably under a label, so you will void your warranty if you try this, but it's pretty easy to put the controller back together and if it's broken anyhow... But if it is under warranty, see what help you can get from the manufacturer.

I don't personally know of anywhere that will replace the stick. If it truly is broken as you say, you will need to purchase another one. After all, it is broken.
