I’m sharing pictures, because this seems fairly incredible to me:
This controller fell maybe 3 feet onto a hardwood floor, and I was amazed to discover that the joystick — which doesn’t appear to physically fit through the, uh, joystick hole! — had completely detached. It definitely does not want to "pop back in" and I am a little nervous of the prospect of disassembling and re-assembling this $50 controller in order to get the joystick back in, but is that what I should do?
(Has this happened to anyone else?)
To clarify (to best comply with Stack Exchange rules): The main question here is: What is my best option for repairing this joystick-lite xbox controller?
