Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Sluggish Analog Response

I'm having problems with my 360 controller input. It's a subtle but extremely irritating flaw concerning the right analog stick, most noticeable when playing shooters. When I look around using the right analog stick it works, but there is a little over a half second where it is sluggish and slow to respond. If I push longer than that it moves at its normal pace but for the first half second its sluggish and loose, moving half its normal speed. It sounds minor but in practice it proves to be highly frustrating, as there is delay between the time you move the stick a certain way and the reticle responds. I have tried two different controllers which both have the same problem, which incidently materialized suddenly, one day I didn't have the problem and the next day I did. It's a very peculiar flaw and I haven't been able to find any topics addressing a similar issue, so I'd really appreciate it if someone here had any insights.

    I have the same issue, with an XBOX 360 Elite. (All I play is Halo 3) When I look around, the same slow response time is there.

    I have the same problem with the elite. I've tried directly connecting and wirelessly connecting different controlers to the xbox 360 with no change. Its an intermittent problem but when it happens there is no point even playing.

Left analog stick drifting left


Hello Iwn666,

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.

Can I tune in my samsung 2-3 year old TV to an old non-digital VCR?


This would be easier to answer if you had included model numbers of both. Check the connectors on each and you should find color-coded connectors marked with matching inputs & outputs. You will need to connect the outputs of the VCR to the matching inputs of the TV. The signal coming from the VCR will, of course, be analog so you may need to set the TV on channel 3 or 4 and select the appropriate inputs of the TV via the main menu. It should state 'Analog.' If you are concerned about keeping stereo signals on the proper sides, red=right, white=left.

The right analog stick doesn't respond right away after being pushed, i have to push it hard for it to respond


open it up slowly and gentle then see if there is anything stuck to the analog from the inside sometimes dust or other things hold the analog stick from being pushed or make a layer between the analog and the board button..

Zone 2 audio output is for analog only? The only reason I bought this receiver was to be able to play my ipod on our outdoor speakers.


David is wrong. My Onkyo is the same way. The receiver will only provide a signal to zone 2 speaker outputs from analog sources. I assume this was because of concerns with digital rights management, which caused some odd decisions for a while by hardware manufacturers. Newer receivers should not have this problem.

Issue with right analog stick - Xbox 360 Controller


I'm afraid I've had the same problem and I can shed a little light on it.

I've tried to fix this but to no avail. I have even transplanted the whole analog stick unit with one from a working controller to see if it will work but I have the same problem.

So, my conclusion the problem is not with the stick itself, but with the microcontroller inside the pad which takes the info from the stick.

I took the analog unit out, and plugged the pad into the computer without it , but STILL the vertical axis on the right stick was pushing up even though there was no input from a stick. It seems to be a fault with the pad, not the analog stick.

The left analog stick on my xbox 360 controller is faulty


In this game you must check your settings, you may be set to right handed in which case movement/advance is on the right side and attack is on the left. You should be able to go to settings and change the settings to make the left analog control your movement. Hope this helped and if it does, don't forget to leave feedback....FIXYA!

Analog


Seeing the word "analog" on your screen means the monitor has recognized video input on the vga "analog" input connection.
Most computers output "analog" vga (15 pin) which must be converted to digital for a flat panel monitor to display the image.
Many LCDs now have both analog and digital inputs.

Problem with Digital Input


Hi,

You may need to switch monitor selection in your Display Properties. You need to activate twin/dual view in your Display Properties. Right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, select monitor 1 or 2 depending which is your primary and which is your secondary (analog/digital). Check (or uncheck-whichever works) on box "Extend....". Apply, OK.

There is an application that is supposed to facilitate twin or dual view configuration, UltraMon. This may be better/safer way to address your concern.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you have other concerns.

Good luck and kind regards.
