L3 button press causes random button inputs - HELP!

#1jstarwindPosted 1/11/2012 3:49:17 PM
So I saw a similar thread on here maybe a week ago and someone posted a video showing a quick fix process. I've googled and checked youtube but not found the right video, there's lots of 'controller fixes' but they relate to other problems.

Basically when I push the L3 button to run other inputs occur - most often I switch guns or crouch or jump or fire a shot. Obviously each time I stop running. It's an absolute game breaker, I can't play at all. Two controllers, they both do it.

This video described a quick fix involving using electrical tape to beef up something below the button to keep a buffer space between it and the other inputs, or something. Does anyone know where I can find this video?

You are in luck! I just did this and it has saved my life lol. Fixed two controllers with the same prob. You need a jewelers philips head and a piece of electrical tape.

If link doesn't work, since im on a phone, just search youtube for ps3 controller fix. A few down will be "Ps3 controller problems (easy fix).

Thanks to the poster that showed this to me before.

Lol, it wasn't complaining about lag compensation, spawns, or t95 so it was likely ignored by most. :p

OK, the fix is easy enough, but I can't put the controller back together without one or both of the trigger buttons breaking. Getting very frustrated.

Alright, looks like I fixed the one, just need to play test it. but the other one, the whole trigger contraption came apart in my hands, and I snapped the controller right in half. Well, before I had two broken controllers and now I have one working controller. Can't be too mad.

Whoa....

I broke the triggers about 9 times. You just have to pop them back in place.

I might have to look something up... my R2 trigger (ADS) keeps going off/on when I press it.

It annoys me and makes me look stupid when I keep going ADS, hip, ADS, hip...
It's stupid when it looks like I'm trying to quickscope with a gun's Iron Sights... >_>
