LSC is what I call the L3 counterpart, for Left Stick Click.
It could be the button has finally worn out and replacing the entire stick is the best option there, or if it was dropped/thrown the board could be cracked and causing the problem, so some trace repair would be needed.
If the Stick is bad don't get some 3rd party knock off, get one that belongs in there. Ever notice that most 3rd party controller's Analog sticks aren't the greatest? that's why. The actual Sticks are made by Alps and cost around $8 a pop before shipping (when they're in stock) - http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/ALPS/R...KNkNMXy5dhhA%3d
but if you need to replace one get a new one, or at least one from another 360 controller. All 360 controllers use the same Sticks, the stick caps are different on some, Gray, Black, new Gray, but the actual Stick is the same on all of them.
The problem you have with your 'slow' controllers can be fixed with a T8/Philips driver (depending on the controller), some sandpaper and a bit of elbow grease. Just take them apart and sand the opening in the top half of the shell for the Stick, so it's a tiny bit larger, that's it. This way it can move a little bit farther than what it could before and will work like it's supposed too, and it doesn't take much at all really.
Sounds like I do have a "slow" controller, but is that the case with all new controllers? All the newer one's I have tried using (so far, 5) were all slow.. the analog sticks were awful.
It could be that the mechanism ( http://www.etech.com/analog-replacement-sw...controller.html
) is different on the newer controllers.
The PS3 analog sticks are by far the best I have ever used.
Looks like I will sand the area of the stick. Why would I need elbow grease for though? lol sry, I'm not familiar with this kinda stuff..
Thanks for the reply!
