Why does my N64 have control stick problems?
So my original Nintendo 64 controller has worked perfectly for such a long time, while third party controllers I have also bought come and go. However my original first party controller has not had any problems until now. The symptoms are random, and it only happens with certain games more often then others.
Symptom #1: The control stick has stick drift, the type that is caused by turning on the console while the control stick is held in a direction. I know this can be reset by pressing L+R+Start. When I load a game, it sometimes starts doing this immeadietly, and I use the button combination to fix it. But doing that it just drifts a different direction, and I have to do this about 3 times till it works normally. Also it begins to drift at random times during gamplay.
Symptom #2: Occassionaly when I turn on the console, it doesn’t even know the controller is there. I have to turn on and off the console and unplug the controller multiple times to get it to recognize the controller. Also sometimes during gameplay, the game will flicker “No Controller”, then go back to normal, although this only happens for a few of my games.
I know that was a lot, but I love my first party controller very much and I want it to return to normal as it was my favourite and most used of the many others. I do have other controllers that I am playing with in the mean time. Thanks for the help in advance.
