Today we repair some JoyCon Drift issues. For your chance to win a Tesla Model 3 Performance AND a dream house (or $1 million!) while supporting a great cause, enter at home.omaze.com/jerryrig (Unfortunately the code is not working - the Omaze team apologizes for the confusion.) Thanks to Omaze for sponsoring this video. The joycon drift has plagued many a gamer, and if warranty repairs or replacement joycons are in short supply.... sometimes you gotta just fix it yourself. Today my wife Cambry is going to show us how easy it is to replace the joystick inside if your JoyCon controller.
These are the replacement joysticks we used: amzn.to/2IQn9oY

Video idea. Show me how to fix the joystick on an Xbox elite series 2 controller. Like how to swap the entire thing on the board. I know how to solder and I'm confident enough to do the job but I don't know where to get the replacement part. It's different than the standard controller ones. Looks the same but there a sensitivity issue between them. Standard controller is more sensitive than the elite even if you set the elite on its highest sensitivity response curve. It was something that I felt the first time I played with one. Something most people probably wouldn't notice but I notice crazy small stuff like that because it greatly affects my game play. I have 4 of these conollers now all with the same L3 sprint issue where I can't run in call of duty. Microsofts warranty on these is terrible. Send it In wait weeks to get a new one or something back and they'll send you the same broken controller back telling you it's fine. I've spent so much money on controllers alone it's unreal 🤣. I play one game and strive to be the best at it and it's annoying that I've grown so accustomed to these specific controllers that I need to have one.

That inspired me to research again. I want to fix this and install clear shells with a dpad but couldn't find one I visually liked. I am also horrible with small electronics stuff but this seems manageable. What's the worst case, it's still broken??

Don't sweat it Cambry. After I took something apart, fixed it, and put it back together, the first question my dad always asked me was " How many parts do you have left over?"....I just told him I fixed it didn't I?...ahh joy....Good job guys !!

Thing I found out is that you can use some rubbing alcohol and a q tip and put it under the rubber flap to keep dust out under the stick and clean it out gets rid of drift

I have a simpler fix: WD- 40. Spray underneath the stick. Not a definitive fix, but works!

story time. our switch gets used allot. and we noticed drifting a couple months ago. its not really that much of a hassle cause we only play stardew valley and animal crossings. but it kept on getting worse, and i decided to ask for a repair kit this christmas. new joysticks and some tools. i looked up this video and i was convinced this was going to be an easy fix. just swap the joysticks.. how hard can it be. i'm a mechanic afterall. screwy-screwy is my job.. so i get to it this morning. boy was i surprised how TINY everything is once i opened up the left controller. it all looks pretty straightforward in your videos, but once you are trying to pry in one of those cables with a pair of tweezers and no magnifying glass the reality hits you! this was a hassle! my first experience playing around with such tiny cables. if you are reading this, and want to fix your own controllers.. know what you are getting into. its not difficult, but you really have to precise. i managed tho.. happy with the result. that left stick really was loose. i can feel a big difference in the controller. happy i did this. totally worth it!

i bought this exact same kit a while back and it was absolutely terrible. Almost all of the screws got stripped (whether it is my fault, the screwdriver's fault, the screws' fault, or nintendo's fault i am unsure) and I had to drill the screws out. After that the repair went relatively easily, and after putting it together (with barely any screws remaining) i realized there was still some drift on the replacement stick, although less prominent. If you're gonna replace your joystick buy one from ifixit and look for a high quality screwdriver (my sister did a repair on her joystick using their screw bit and it had the same issue). At this point I am unable to find any screwdrivers that will work without stripping the screw but I will look around. I only did a repair on the left joycon (because after the horrors of that one I didn't want to do the other) and I had already given that one a go and stripped most of those too. The good thing is that I can find replacement screws with phillips bits and new joycon housings for pretty cheap. I guess that's another option besides looking for a screwdriver. Everyone probably came for the studio tour but I just wanted to vent about this amazon kit.

Hey I have a question, the color of the cable on the stick means something? I have seen different colors, blue, orange, black. The color indicates something or all replacements are the same?

On my joy con,I noticed that the rubber cap that covers the bulb/base of the c stick became loose and travels further than it’s supposed to.The cap then gets stuck between the joy con shell and c stick base and so the c stick becomes stuck in on position.
