crappy analog sticks

Ok so my analog sticks on one of my controllers sucks, it sticks so if im playing a game the character is always moving forward if i dont move the stick down. Is there a safe lubricant that can be used to make it not stick?

The sticks on one of mine squeak when I use it, so I tried putting WD40 in it and oil, neither really made much of a difference. Its probably better to get another controller to be honest. When I used either thing, I didn't use my controller for a couple of days because I didn't want it to short circuit. But as far as I know oil shouldn't conduct electricity, so it should be safe to use that.

If its a new controller its gonna do that sometimes till you use it for a while. Just spin the joystick around for like a minute and it will stop catching and your good. If its an old controller and just started doing it, then its getting worn down and probably needs to be replace.

My stupid dpad broke so it always holds right, had to buy a new luckily the blue controllers just came out.

Well WD-40 isn't really a lubricant, all it's really meant for is to free rusted parts and displace water, silicone lube though apparently works well, or graphite shavings, sincve that's actually the original lubricant. To use any of these though you'll need to disassemble the controller, for this just consult YouTube and find a good tutorial that you can understand. Once it's disassembled it's just a matter of lubing up the analog stick and you should be good. They key though is be light on lubricant, don't think more is better, it's not in this case.

Just one tip for taking them apart, putting them back together sucks big time unless you have one of the very new controllers. The older ones havel ike 4 peices for the top shoulder area that are a pain in the butt to hold together while you snap it all back together.

Why didn't I think of that?! Thanks man, I do have some silicon for my treadmill, so I'll use that later on.
