The Nintendo Switch analog stick drifting is very common these days, and it is super annoying. In this updated video, I will show you how to fix it quickly. Let’s get started. So first, check your Nintendo Switch analog stick by going into the system settings, then move the cursor down and select Controllers and Sensors, then again, move the cursor down and select Calibrate Control Sticks. Then press the analog stick that you want to check or calibrate. When you see this anomaly, then the first step is to to calibrate it. So press the X button to calibrate the analog stick Follow the onscreen instruction And it still drifts to the left, so let’s try to fix it in other way. Remove the joy-con from the console For the first method, you will need a contact cleaner spray such as this WD40 contact cleaner. Take your joy-con, tilt the analog stick, then use the contact cleaner straw to lift the rubber flap at the bottom of the analog cap, then spray it Leave the joy-con a while Then retest the analog stick. It is fixed now. Most of the time, this easy method is effective to kill the drifting issue. But, try to check the analog stick in several hours or one day later to see if the drifting issue reoccur If spraying the contact cleaner didn’t fix the drifting issue, then you need to replace the whole analog stick. You can buy it on Aliexpress or Ebay, and it doesn’t matter if you buy a clone one either. But in this video, I will be using the original analog stick. You need a tri-wing screw driver to disassemble the joy-con Use a Y00 size tri-wing screw driver. It’s the perfect size to remove joy-con case screw A Philips 00 size screw driver A blunt tweezer A spudger Or you can use a Halberd Spudger And a plastic opener tool Use a tri-wing screw driver to remove four screws from the joy-con case Use a plastic opener tool to separate the joy-con case Get your tweezer and remove the battery connector Then use a spudger to pry the battery out from the plastic case Take the philips screw driver and remove these screws Then lift the battery case carefully as there is a small flex ribbon cable attached to the PCB below it. Use a spudger to unlatch these flex ribbon connector carefully Then use a tweezer to remove the flex ribbon cable from the connector Use a philips screw driver to remove the screws from the analog stick And you can now remove the bad analog stick from the joy-con Prepare the replacement analog stick and install it to the joy-con And re-assemble the joy-con Again, test the joy-con analog stick. If you are satisfied with the result, then you have solved the drifting problem. If not, then you might need to replace the whole joy-con. Nintendo used a bad analog stick and even if you rarely use your console, it still drifts and mostly occurs on the left joy-con. It’s becoming an epidemic issue, and they should address this on the next console release. So there you go Nintendo, fix the dreadful joy-con, will you? Thank you for watching this video.
