    Right joystick isn't working with any controllers or consoles.


    The right joystick suddenly stopped working mid game on my Xbox One with all my controllers, three wireless and one wired. The system recognizes the joystick when testing and with the magnifier. When I use the controllers with my PC they work fine. After spending a week researching and troubleshooting I finally gave up and bought a replacement Xbox One. Same problem. I returned it and bought a brand new Series S with a brand new controller. Again, same problem.

    I have changed the batteries and made sure the controllers were all up to date. I've made sure my consoles and TV are up to date. I've powered the consoles on and off and unplugged the power cords to clear the cache. I've tried resyncing all of my controllers. I've moved the consoles to a different power outlet. I've reset the systems. I reset my TV to factory settings. I even tried hooking up the systems to the RCA with an adapter thinking maybe it was the HDMI ports on my TV. No luck. I can't find any other solutions online. How do I fix this, please?

    :)

    Right joystick isn't working with any controllers or consoles.

    Hello Eve Bell,

    Thank you for your contribution to the Microsoft community.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been experiencing issues with your controllers. Based on the troubleshooting steps you've already taken, it sounds like the issue may be with the HDMI ports on your TV. Just a reminder, here on community, we are not able to check all of your devices and determine where the problem is since we do not have that option here on community. What we can do here is provide you some troubleshooting steps and if none if it works, it would be the best to contact our dedicated Xbox Live support already as they have a better view than us here on community. They can also escalate this case to our higher dedicated team if necessary.



    Basing on the statement you provided above, here are some troubleshooting steps that you may try:

    1. Check Magnifier Settings:
    2. Reconfigure Controller:
    3. Hard Reset Your Xbox:
    4. Check for Residue Build-Up:
      • Sometimes dust or residue can affect joystick movement.
      • Gently clean around the joystick area to ensure there’s no debris.
      • Test the controllers after cleaning.
    5. Update Controller Firmware:
      • Connect your controller to your Xbox using a USB cable.
      • Go to Settings > Devices & connections > Accessories.
      • Select your controller and check for any available firmware updates.
      • Apply any updates and test the joystick again.
    6. Test on Another TV or Monitor:
      • Connect your Xbox to a different TV or monitor using a different HDMI port.
      • Sometimes HDMI ports can cause issues.
      • If the joystick works on another display, it might be related to your TV.

        If the issue persists, it would be the best to reach out our Xbox Live support.

    Xbox Controller Right Analog Stick Not Working - Still

    Having the same issue. Right joystick only works in test mode and when magnifier is on. I can actually go into the controller settings and “swap sticks” and then the right joystick works but not the left. So clearly the controller is working properly and not damaged or faulty. Feels like its some sort of software/setting issue. Same problem on (4) separate controllers and (2) different xbox consoles….

    Series x isn't recognizing right joystick for multiple controllers

    I powercycled, turned it on with the controller and it still isn't working. I turned that controller off and tried my other one and the right joystick still isn't working on that one either. No clue what's going on. I was using a pretty much brand new controller when this happened. I just got the forza 5 edition controller last week.

    Xbox X right joystick not working in games. Do anyone know why?

    I have bought a new controller, tried different batteries in both controllers, reset the console deleting everything and the issue is still there.

    The issue started when I downloaded and started to play COD MW5. The game started and I had no functionality in the right joystick. I went to the dashboard and the right joystick still didn’t work. I tested all the buttons on the controller and they all registered, including the right joystick.

    I attempted to play Diablo this morning and noticed during game play and the menus, the right joystick did not work. However if I paused the game, I was able to turn my character around by using the right joystick.

    I sent my console in for repair about a week ago for the same exact issue. I get it back this past Monday and issue is still there. They didn’t send me a refurbish unit because I recorded my serial number before I shipped it off and it’s the same console. I called Microsoft to see what exactly the issue was and nobody will tell you.

    This is horrible to have a game system that cost this much money for not even a month and already having issues.
