If you want to save the drifting Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, watch all the videos (including ourselves) online and have no luck yet, this new fix on YouTube Would you like to give it a try? Claims to have completely solved the Joy-Con drift problem.
YouTube’s VK channel has identified how Joy-Con is readjusted when pressure is applied around the analog stick. Therefore, increasing the pressure inside the Joy-Con (which loosens over time) will eliminate the drift.
Surprisingly, this fix does not require any technical know-how. All you have to do is open the case and insert a small piece of paper or cardboard (about 1mm) where the analog is placed. Yes-it’s that easy. It also describes how the prongs in the controller lose contact with the pads over time and the paper fills the gaps to relieve pressure.
YouTuber also notes that their drifting Joy-Con has been working fine for about two months and the same fix can be applied to the Nintendo Switch Lite.Skip to 5:55 Check for major fixes in action.
