Vita Analog Stick Drifting

Postby nesfan » December 29th, 2019, 7:55 pm

I just got a used Vita as a Christmas present and the analog sticks are giving me some trouble. The right one acts like it's constantly pointing down and the left one just does whatever the hell it wants. Forget playing a game, navigating a menu is nigh impossible! I've read online that this is a common issue with the Vita and it's bound to happen several times to Vita owners. The common solution seems to be to spray the base of the sticks with compressed air and I did just that last night. But it hasn't helped. In fact, the left stick might be even worse than it was before.
Does anyone have experience with this? Do you know any other tricks to get it working that I could try before I give up and take it to get repaired?
