Question about Video Game Consoles
Yeah my controller started sticking up and not centering properly when released. I tried everything to clean it up but nothing worked untill I went to the local electronics store and got some contact cleaner with lubricating oil. (MG Chemicals - Nu-trol contact cleaner with special lubrication oils) Open the controller ( see youtube) the analog sticks cannot be taken apart but if you push the stick up you can squirt the base and work the cleaner/lube into the base. I squirted a bit on all 4 sides (left, right, up , down) working it in making a circular motion with the stick. Worked quite well and is the only thing so far that works at all. These seem to be sealed units (the sticks) with no way to open the business end to clean up the contacts. I put a toothpick under the tracing sheet to help with evaporation of the cleaner. Hope this helps.
Regards, Mike in Victoria
