Controller port 1 stuck going right

Recommended Posts

Had to recently get another Odyssey 2, because my old one had an issue of controller #1 stuck right. Not physically, but electronically. If you played Baseball, all your fielders would immediately run to right field, and pulling the joystick left would just stop them dead in their tracks. At first I thought I had a faulty controller, so I bought 2 NOS joysticks online and replaced the one with a new one. Same problem. Must be something on the PCB causing it. I'm not smart about the internal workings, so I bought a new console. Now I got 4 joysticks, and a "for parts" backup console. Any ideas whats wrong with it? I refuse to throw it away, maybe I can use it for parts down the line, but maybe it's a simple fix to get it working again.

Definitely do not throw it away as the two socketed chips could be used as spares and do go bad once in awhile. 
I’ve never had this issue but it could be a short or a chip issue as you theorized.

I seem to have the same issue with my Odyssey 2, but it has been a while since I tried.  From what I recall, controller 2 was fine.  I believe mine does not have the removable controllers, but I would have to check again.  Let me know if you figured out your issue.
