There are a couple things you should try before buying a new controller. First, make sure that when you start your pc or xbox 360 that you are not pressing the trigger, as this can make it stick while it is on. Next, you can try to plug in/turn on the controller and then plug out/turn off the controller a few times in a row, this may work also. If neither of those work, then you could still try with a different console or pc, and if the problem persists to those, I would think about buying a new controller.
If the potentiometer for the trigger is bad or is not making good contact with the circuit board, say through a poor solder connection, this could be your problem. If the controller isn't getting any signal from the electronic trigger component it sees that as a pressed trigger and becomes grenade happy. This has happened to me. Bob.
The contact point on the left trigger might have failed already due to wear and tear since there are moving parts, and if there are moving parts there is friction thus likely could damage the contact point of trigger whenever being pressed. The might need to be replaced in that case.
If you have a firewall or network hardware, such as a router, you might
need to make a configuration change in order for your Xbox 360 console
to communicate with Xbox LIVE. This configuration change is sometimes
called “opening ports” or "port forwarding."
Xbox LIVE requires
the following ports to be open:
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!)
