Trying to calibrate a controller that lists left.

I have a third party 360 controller. It has a normal D-pad, unlike most that have that weird sliding circle thing.

The main analogue stick is suddenly left, and calibrating it using the Windows 7 UI doesn't work. I took the controller apart and poked at it, and it didn't help (although it also didn't make it worse.) There's either a short in it somewhere, or something else has gone wrong inside it.

I really like this controller, so if it can be adjusted to compensate I'd like to. :)

Increase the dead zone.

My PS2 controller reads as being at the 50% position to the left when it's just sitting still, I maxed the dead zone in Dolphin and it works fine. Of course, more precise movements are sort of hard, but it works fine for what I'm using it for.

Have you tried lubing up the stick? If you've already taken it apart it shouldn't be a problem for you, I'm sure there's tutorial vids for 360 controllers, maybe even your specific one, but I've seen N64 controllers go from stuck at a tilt to better than new with just a dab of lithium grease. Another option is graphite powder but don't use anything petroleum based like Vaseline.

I find water based lubricants are actually the best when it comes to lubing the stick.
