Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
What the problem is inside the controller where the left joystick is attached to mechanism that makes the controller register into the system to play a game. There are only two things I advise you to do.
1, Open up the controller and see if you are able to re-adjust the joystick on the pad.
2. See if you can get a refund or you might have to by one.
Warning!!! Do not open up the controller then get the refund because if the store you got the controller from finds out that you opened up the controller then your warranty on the controller will be gone.
I hope this information helps you.

There could multiple things wrong, and hopefully nothing serious. Here is a complete list of some problems and solutions that can be wrong with the analog stick.
1. The Left analog stick may be sticky. If you eat greasy foods while playing your Xbox 360 console, try to avoid this from now on. Grease from food particles may slip into the analog stick, and make it sticky, causing the analog to move constantly to one fixed position. Please look at the next problem and solution ahead before attempting to remove your controller with a screwdriver. Here is a complete guide on how to access the inside of an Xbox controller.
2. There may be a simple glitch in configuration. Try turning off your Xbox 360 controller by holding the Xbox Guide button for approx 4 seconds untill a menu comes up. Select "Turn off controller". After doing so, try turning on your controller again. If the problem persists, there may be a greasy analog stick, or an object that broke that holds the analog stick together. Go back to problem/soltution #1.
