Squeaky Left trigger/controls... Solution! :-)

13 Replies 7,213 Views Created 06-03-2012

If any of you have noticed that your left trigger squeaks or feels tighter than the right trigger then I have been told of a solution which has worked for me and others.

 

Basically you just need to un-tighten the top left hand screw at the back slightly and problem is solved. I used one of the screwdrivers from my mobile phone tool set. This also solved the squeaking that I had when pushing down on the d-pad.

 

Apparently Sony over tightened some of the screws which causes squeaks in the device. There are youtube videos showing how to do this, but it's very easy if you have the correct tool.

 

Thanks to Arien-1986 for passing this tip onto me.

When I loosened the screw I actually found a small mouse alive inside.

 

He looked hungry so I fed him some cheese and now we're best buddies. I call him Nibbles

I'm sorry for your loss. 

 

The companionship which only a rodent can provide is a big gap to fill emotionally

Mine still feels more stiff, rather than squeaking. It cured the squeaking though. Cheers!

Glad it sorted out your squeaking. The mouse is no longer in the house ;)

You didn't beat anyone to it, because this is a different website and a different forum! Fool.

Has annoyed me in the past, but definitely while playing the Resistance demo it ***** me off big time. May loosen the screw.

You only have to loosen it a little bit to stop the squeaking :)
