Switch Pro Controller right analog stick drifting in game

As the title says, the pro controller right analog stick is registering some slight drift in game even though the stick itself is in the neutral position. It doesn’t happen all the time, and usually stops when I correct it, but it is definitely annoying and I’d like to fix it if possible. Anyone else have this issue? Thanks in advance!

For anyone else wondering, I was able to fix this by using the control stick calibration tool in the Nintendo Switch settings menu. I got no more drift after doing so.

UPDATE: This fix only worked temporarily. I’ve since ordered a replacement analog stick from the ifixit shop, and will be replacing it soon.

Here is how to rest the controller to zero the left and right stick:

https://en-americas-support.nintendo.com...

Try it a few times, turn off the system and try it again, then turn on the system, let it load to the menu, and try again

If that doessn’t work, i can think of two options, disconnect the battery inside for short time, then repeat the process.

Finally, i had the same problem with my wii U Main (With the screen) controller, and the controller part inside had to be replaced from playing Splatoon too much :) - i got it for $10 and did it in 5 minutes.

Try exhausting the resetting techniques first. Report back.

Thank you! Somehow it hadn't even occurred to me that it could be software and not hardware. I'll check it this week and let you know how it goes!

Excellent, glad to be helpful :P

Ps. click the answered button if it works out for you!

So unfortunately your method did not work. I was able to fix it though, at least as far as I could tell. Nintendo's own customer service site mentions the control stick calibration tool in the Switch settings menu. Using this tool worked perfectly! Hopefully it stays fixed. Thanks for your help though!

Ahhh okay!

Sorry i went away for a while, this summer is SO nice :)

Ultimately you found a way to fix it, and that's what counts!

Nice one :)

If the problem comes back, this will be the best place to come .

lol... i'm promoting this site because i just like fixin' stuff :)

The reason the controllers get dusty and start drifting is because Nintendo used Graphite as conductor for the analog stick instead of copper.

Graphite is great for electronics tbh, it’s almost the same thing. But turns out that graphite isn’t good with attrition (I know, go figure), meaning that using the analog creates dust inside your controller, that messes up the position sensor. It’s pure and simple design failure. The dust isn’t coming from outside, if anyone was wondering…

It’s a really big issue all four of my joycons went back to Nintendo a month ago due to drift of the analogue sticks Nintendo replaced two and repaired two. They just made it back before Xmas after having them 3-4 weeks! After a week two are already drifting again!

Its a major issue and if I’d know I would have bought my kids another console! In talks again with Nintendo now to try and get a PROPER solution!

Yeah it’s definitely frustrating. Switch is a fantastic system but the durability of the controllers could definitely be better. Recalibration the control sticks only worked temporarily, so I’ve ordered a replacement part from ifixit and will be performing the repair in the next week or so.

dust can get under the flaps of the joycons sometimes and that dust pushes the joystick so that it drifts. Not always the case but commonly is

“Drifting” is a problem with both the original JoyCon controllers, and the Nintendo Pro Controller. I have experienced both and found that calibrating, updating the system, re-syncing the controllers…do not help. I am convinced it is simply a design flaw. Whatever the case, a controller that costs over $60.00 should last longer than a month with normal use.

Yeah, I'm a little disappointed with the endurance of the controllers. Hoping they fix it in future hardware revisions, because Nintendo has a great track record for hardware quality otherwise. Meanwhile, I've purchased a replacement stick for mine and will be performing the repair soon.

It can't be the build quality of the devices because the sunwaytek sg-n30 wireless controller not made by Nintendo also does the exact same thing. Right analog stick drift. Usually if I disconnect the controller and re-pair it it works for a while. It has to be something in the switch software that causes it. It's just too coincidental that a third party controller (only two weeks old at that) would present the exact same issue. ,

I believe that's the case because it's happening with all my ps4 controllers and only when connected to the stitch (via threw bluetooth control stick). It also effects all four of my switch controllers as well.

Reading all of this just has me realise Nintendo will go down as the next most disappointing video game company. They're finally gonna be there with Atari and Sega. Microsoft and Sony will wipe them out. Goodbye Nintendo…

I fixed my drift (verified in calibration screen) by taking out the board from the controller, using an electric airblower on the offending joystick with the thumbpad off, then applying a tiny dab of super lube to the rod (see purple arrow)

I’m also having this on my switch lite its annoying I just bought it to XD

Problem is that once the part that drags over the graphite breaks through the top layer it will start digging a trench through it and quickly make more.
