Analog Stick Problem, need help

#1GamespohtPosted 9/12/2013 10:07:26 AM
Tried to google this but got no actual results

I turned on my Wii U, and i soon as i touched the Left Analog stick it just quickly drifted over to the right, Now appearntly the Left Analog stick isn't even working and everything keeps going to the right side.

I know with the gamecube controller, sometimes it would act as if I was holding the stick at a particular direction, even when I wasn't touching it. When that happened, unplugging the controller always worked, but this is a wireless controller, so you can't do that.

Have you tried turning off the system?

I can confirm that these are the proper steps to fixing your issue.

Always touch *no* buttons or sticks until the system has booted properly. The only exception is holding down the B button if you want to boot straight into Wii mode.

This is true for all game consoles. When you boot a console, it checks the attached controllers and reads the current positions of the sticks and buttons as the "neutral" position. You need to make sure they all really are in the neutral position at that time, to avoid this kind of problem.

There is a way to calibrate the touch screen in the system options. Have you tried that?
