Left Joystick Switch Pro Controller gets stuck/jammed un up-right pos.
Hello! I have a kind of annoying problem.
My Switch Pro Controller works fine, calibration-wise its perfect. The thing is in the mechanical aspect. The left Joystick gets physically stuck when I move it to the uprigh or upleft position.
I live in Ecuador so there is no official Nintendo Repair shop here so I opened it myself (have done this with other consoles and controllers) to see if there was some dust inside or any material preventing it to return and there was nothing. I came to realise that is was a problem with the stick itself connected to the controller motherboard... aparently it gets jammed, maybe some of the moving plastic are making too much friction with each other.
The question is. Is there anything I can do? because the part is sodered to the mainboard so there's no way I'm equipped to take it out, nor would I want to do that. Maybe there is a way to make the plastic get unstuck. When I pressure the stick down, but not down enough to trigger the joystick button press it moves quite fine.
Any help or comment would be apreciated!
As a new piece of info, I opened it again and heard a clicking sound when i push the stick. Seems to be a very tight fit between the plastics. The right joystick doesn't do that sound.
I am going to try using a blower at some point to see if there is something stuck in there
Es esta una buena pregunta?
I am experiencing the same problem. Just wondering have you finally fixed it?

I have the same problem, the thing is that the mechanical part of the joystick. In my case, the plastic above the button on the left is loose and lets the joystick to drift to one side, making it go farther than it has to go, making it get stuck. I'm trying to get that loose plastic to stick again and hope that works.

The little plastic thing was also what broke on my controller, bit of super glue and it works like new

I wanted to show my friend how I threw my controller if I got angry and then then the left side of the joystick got detached and I cant move it at all. I also feel like the base of the joystick is bent. Can I fix that?
