    This problem started out small but seems to have gotten worse. In game it will push down/right sometimes on it's own and it is very annoying. Some examples would be:
    Mario ducks randomly in nsmb2
    Link runs faster to the right but pushing left he only walks in albw

    Does anyone have tips on how I can deal with this? Maybe a special rotation while calibrating?

    Edit: Wiggling my device seems to activate it pretty consistently.

    I think you can calibrate it in the settings.. Outside of that, see if ninty can't fix it.. Or.. You.

    I've tried calibrating many times. Sometimes it can't reach the left and top triangles on the test. Maybe I'll try fixing it myself.

    Doesn't seem like it'll be difficult. Just gotta go slow and take notes of what you d/c in order. :P You probably know that though.

    Yea, I was looking at the ifixit guide. The only thing is dishing out the cash for the tools. It's probably my only shot at fixing it though.
