    I was wondering are other vita owners who have analog problems without any real cause? In specific the slim model.
    What I mean by analog problem in specific is your analog moving on it's own. My analog would to the left on it's own and when I turn it to the right it just goes very slowly or not at all since it being pulled to the left. Database rebuild and hard resets don't fix it.

    I basically just replaced my the analog that was miss functioning. Now a very little while later my other analog stick is presenting the same exact behaviour, I'm like: Are you frikin kidding me right now?
    I just find it hard to believe the problem lies with me when I take good care of my Vita and am not being rough when I'm playing ever.
    So I was just wondering if this is a common problem or something?

    I guess I'll have to replace my other analog now too, luckily it's cheap tho.

    It just needs recalibrating. No need to replace.

    Same as with PS3 consoles rotate the analog clockwise like 3 full turns. And done it will fix it if it was a calibration issue.

    I have a fat ps vita that I got close to launch. I've got hundreds of hours on Disgaea 4, Persona 4, Persona 3, and Project Diva. No issues at all.

    My left analog auto-fires to the right and my right analog auto-fires to the left on occasion. Recalibration doesn't seem to get rid of the issue, nor does rebuilding the database.

    I've been meaning to try a reformat but it takes forever to backup games with the content manager through WiFi. If only my Vita would co-operate through cable.

    Take it apart and clean the analogues inside, might have a build up of dirt and sweat etc

    I've got a launch psvita and haven't had any problems with mine

    When i bought my i was having same issue with left analog - drifting on it own. I sprayed WD-40 - no problems anymore. I know that hack from elsewhere and you can use it to clean al sorts of electronics. I fixed my mouse Omron switches same way. :)

    u can use WD-40 if its 4 electronics. the standard product leaves an oily residue that attracts dust and can actually elevate the problem. i read that online somewhere back when i was trying 2 fix mine.

    just use some isopropyl alcohol to clean it. what you want to is get a cotton bud and soak it in ipa then hold a direction whilst dripping ipa into the small gap created on opposite side. do that all the way round the analog stick then spin it round a few times to work it in and it should fix it. did for me and my random right drifting
