Best way to loosen the stick on a new DS3?

#1groccoPosted 9/9/2013 12:25:17 PM
I picked up a new DS3 controller last year and almost never use it because the R3 and L3 sticks are so tight (make aiming accurately very difficult). I've tried mindlessly spinning them and moving them back and forth while watching TV but it doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions to help loosen them?

Get a tight rubber band and put it over both sticks so that it pulls them towards each other.

Since we're on the topic of controllers, my X button is kind of sticking. It's usually not an issue except in cases where I have to repeatedly tap it. I'm thinking it just needs to be cleaned out. How hard is it to open up a DS3 and clean out the area around the buttons?
How's that workin' out for ya? Bein' clever?
