Here I show you, how to fix a broken Xbox One controller stick module, without replacing the module. Hope you understand everything, because my english isn´t very, well. After my third controller broke down and I was really sick of send every month a controller to Microsoft, I dissassembled my controller and tried to figured out what happend always to my left stick, because the problem was always the same.

I don´t know how durable this fix will be, because I could only test it about two weeks, yet. But until now it seems to be good and maybe I will try this on my next new controller, I think it avoid them for breaking, too. What kind of problems fix this tutorial!? Use this fix when your thumbstick, makes noises while moving/pressing down and isn´t stable You will need: - Torx screwdriver T8H + T6, or you can try it with a slot screwdriver -Soldering Iron -glue, I used superglue, but better is epoxy, thanks to the user msav, who can confirm that this makes the controller very durable Step 1: Dissassemble the Controller.

When you locate that grey plastic piece, move the thumbstick a bit around and look if the grey plastic moves. When it moves or there is space between the grey plastic and the metal square, it must be fixed.

I used superglue to fix it. You must put it in the space between the grey plastic and the metal, but be very carefully, if you use too much glue, it could be damage the button under the grey plastic, which is the button when you press the thumbstick down. After that you can assemble the controller. Step 4: Notes. I ended up investing in a Cronusmax Plus. Unfortunately about the same cost as a controller.

It allows you to use most controllers with the xbox one (and other consoles). So I'm now using a crossover 360 controller (with the wireless receiver). However, the XB1 needs to first authenticate an XB1 controller before plugging in the 360 controller after each power cycle.

Introduction: How to Open an XBOX 360 Controller Without a Special Screwdriver. Tired of the T8H screws? Step 1: Supplies. Get your two millimeter slotted bit (flathead, whatever.) there are seven screws, including the HIDDEN SUPER DUPER BONUS SCREW Sonic Charge Bitspeek Keygen For Mac. !!!! Step 3: How to Unscrew Them.

Supposedly you can use a USB hub to negate having to do this each time the console powers off/on. Unfortunately (through the hub) I've not been able to get it to auto-authenticate after a restart. Also most headsets cannot be used through controller; only a select few.

Although there is a two controller method as a workaround. My left thumbstick moves forward but doesn't 'stick' in that position (yet). If I pull back on it, it stops for a few seconds but that is really annoying if you need to stand still while you make a shot. I don't play Madden or that kind of game, so I guess mine has lasted longer. I bought it right after Xbox One came out and it just started failing.

You're right about the new Xbox One controllers being cr4p compared to the 360 or even the Original Xbox controllers. They even make creaky noises if you squeeze them. I'd go back to my 360 controllers in a New York minute if I could. Anyway, thanks for the info GregorJ1. This is very clever.

I was having a similar issue, perhaps not as severe as this since I found a simple fix. Without taking part the controller I pulled both sticks out, not out of the controller but they seem to get stuck a little bit. I heard a little pop and that seemed to fix the issue. The game I play requires a lot of pressing on the sticks quite a bit. This issue was killing me so my google search led me here.

While hats off to the author for this. I suggest you try the simple fix of giving a tug on the sticks first to see if that fixes the issue. (lets be mature about that last sentence:) ).

Superglue is not very durable. I did this repair in February after I went through 6 controllers in 2 weeks. I used epoxy and my controller is still going strong. Wavelab 5 Windows 7 Fix Problem.

If yours breaks again use some epoxy and you will be done with this headache BTW I took apart an xbox 360 controller and that part is metal. Looks like this was a designed failure point to sell more controllers Or save.02 in manufacturing. Also this repair can be done form the top so you don't have to take the whole circuit board out.

I'd figured out what the issue was before looking at this instructable, but I thought that when I pulled apart my controller another plastic clip must have sprung free (a locking clip perhaps). I used 2-part epoxy glue called Araldite which should be available everywhere, and after mixing the 2 liquids to activate the epoxy, used a toothpick to carefully apply the epoxy to the metal part of the stick thingy, then pressed the plastic clip into it.

Waited overnight (though it sets firm after only a few minutes) and it now works fine.
