The MacGyveresque video of the day is the work of YouTubeur “Victorstk“from the chain”VK’S ChannelThe latter, who introduces himself as a developer of budding video games, posted a video in which he claims to present a solution to fix the problem of Joy-Con Drift in a definitive way.
In his video, he shows that applying pressure next to the area of the stick suffering from the problem, with his hand for example, makes the stick disappear. Therefore, the solution to removing the Joy-Con Drift is to find a way to continuously apply sufficient pressure to the affected area.
And believe it “Victorstk, “you don’t have to be a soldering pro to rectify the problem. he says that it suffices to open the Joy-Con concerned and place a small square of cardboard (or a piece of business card for example) 1mm thick under the metal support of the defective stick.
The videographer explains that this metal support holds the Joy-Con stick well when the controller is new. But over time, and with repeated pressure on the stick, the metal softens and moves away from the same stick. According to him, Nintendo could add a small screw to permanently maintain contact between the two parts. But while waiting for the Kyoto firm to find a solution to the Joy-Con Drift problem, its system is fulfilling its objective.
Always according to “Victorstk, “its repair seems to hold up. He claims that two months after adding the little piece of cardboard to his faulty Joy-Con, the drift still hasn’t returned.
For those who have not followed everything, the Joy-Con Drift is the unofficial name given a problem generally affecting the left Joy-Con of the console. More specifically, this concern takes the form of a left joystick which “moves on its own” and which can render games and the console interface unusable. To date, several lawsuits have been brought against Nintendo around the world due to this failure.
