PS4 controller, left stick problem
78 posts Member
Today I purchased a new PS4 controller. I’ve been playing with a bad controller, where the left stick keeps freezing the player holding the puck. So why after about 2 minutes of playing does the new controller begin to have the same issue? Anyone else having this problem, or anyone have a suggestion?
Can you please take a video of the issue occurring and post it in this thread?
Here is a tutorial for capturing video on PS4:
Alternatively, you could just have a friend or family member record your TV with their phone when the issue happens.
Now I own 3 PS4 controllers that I can not use to play EA NHL hockey. I’ll have to find another game that isn’t hard on the controller.
Ok, so it's a controller problem then. Thanks for confirming.
If the controller you just bought has an issue exchange it, try another. If you have access to an eb games they offer insurance on controllers for $7.50. Anything goes wrong within 1 year from date of purchase they will replace it. Then you just buy the insurance again, rinse and repeat. I usually wear a controller out every 4-6 months playing Chel so its saved me quite a bit of money over the years.
Just traded mine in yesterday, RT was sticking, 6 weeks ago I had traded it in cause left stick wasn’t working. The amount of controllers I have gone through this is the best cheapest way to always have a good controller.
And I guess there are also apps for testing the controller in ps store. And for Xbox too in ms store.
Yes the only game that this issue happens with is NHL
Just trying to help. I had this issue with one controller and when I went to practice mode, it showed the right joystick was drifting very little.
It was not causing trouble when my player didn't have the puck or in any other situation (including menus etc), only when I had the puck my player occasionally wouldn't skate until I touched the right stick (centered it).
OMG! Thank you so much for this information.
Just played 2 games, keeping my thumb off the right stick while moving the skater with the left stick. Everything working great now.
I must of gotten into a bad habit, because this became a problem only this season. I was about to give up on this game and take up baseball.
I love you guys that take the time to help others.
