  1. Solution to "Left stick issue on Elite Series 2 controller"


    The Problem
    The left analog stick on the Xbox Elite Controller series 2 does not register that the stick is fully pushed forward when moved quickly. This results in the inability to sprint in games. This impacts controllers on both Xbox consoles & PCs.

    Reproducible Symptoms

    Effected controllers frequently output wildly incorrect values along "Axis 0" in the positive direction when moved quickly. This is obvious when observed through any tool that can read this value from the controller, such as the web-based: https://gamepad-tester.com/ (note: accurate sensors rarely read exactly 0 at neutral & a wide oval pattern of values is by design)
    Simply "flick the stick" upwards (as you would during normal gameplay) several times - most of the values read will be incorrect & very low along one axis if you are experiencing this specific issue.

    The Solution

    This is the result of a physically stuck sensor within the joystick's analog sensor module. To fix this rotate the fully-extended stick while repeatedly clicking on it as you rotate. ie. while moving the stick from the far-left position to the very bottom position you are going to depress the stick as you would to activate the button & repeat this for all angles.

    At this point, you should be able to re-visit the testing tool & see that it reads close to the full 1.00 (100%) value every time.

    ...may seem like a software bug & it can even be remediated through the Xbox or Xbox Accessories app by adjusting the "sensitivity curve" or "deadzone" threshold but this simple solution is better since it alleviates the problem entirely.

    ps. This relates to several highly upvoted (but now locked) threads across various Gaming and Xbox categories & I did not intend to break any community guidelines by posting this. Feel free to request the necessary role on my behalf if you'd like me to add to these locked threads.

    Elite Controller Series 2 Left Stick Issues

    There is a little spring like deal under the joy stick that can get worked with until it no longer works properly. From what i have researched i have not persomally pulled one apart to see exactly for myself on a regular controller

    Elite Controller Series 2 Left Stick Issues

    Sorry to hear it. If you'd like to set up a repair of the controller you can do that at https://devicesupport.microsoft.com. Please be sure to register it first with your console using the S/N in the battery case.

    Once set up and you have received your shipping label via email you can pack up the controller. Please be sure to send only the base controller and nothing else as Xbox does not guarantee that extra items such as thumbsticks or triggers will be returned.

    However, if you'd like to try it I've seen others who have used a q-tip with a little bit of rubbing alcohol have success in fixing the drift. Just put a small amount on the tip of the swab and gentle rub it around the base of the stick. Let dry and repeat
    3 times.

    Left stick issue on Elite Series 2 controller

    Para todos los problemas que tienen estos Elite 2, deben tener al menos un año de garantía imo. ¡Esperemos que haya una solución para nosotros! Es extraño que estuvo bien y ahora esto ha comenzado.

    En cuanto a los juegos, está en todo, desde Modern Warfare hasta Doom Eternal hasta Final Fantasy 13. Incluso navegando por menús como la pantalla de inicio / tablero de mandos One, ni siquiera registrará la mayor parte del tiempo que incluso mueves
    el stick.
