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.

Xbox analog sticks are the wrongs way around.

In the options menu there may be a controller configuration called Southpaw. This reverses the sticks. It might be the problem.

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.

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.

Right joystick

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.

Xbox 360 Controller right trigger doesnt work

Your controller is most likely exhibiting a hardware failure. Taking apart the device voids your warranty. When a button does not work anymore, it is safe to say that you will need to buy a new controller.

The Logitech Chillstream Gamepad is only $20 and works in the same fashion as the XBOX 360 Controller (uses the same xb360 XInput controller driver too!)

Give that a look.

you could allso try a short term solution which stops them sticking for between 1 hour and 3 hours at a time when they start to stick just rub a bit of water/spit around the buttons the part that dissapears into the controller when you press it this will losen the friction so it shouldnt stick intill it drys
