    It's an old console from 2008. licking the left trigger used to work, but now it doesnt. It sometimes work but most of the time not. also the dpad needs a really hard press to trigger the button

    You can blow a can of air in the crease underneath the trigger, but it is only temporary. The tarnish will eventually spread to where it will stop working completely.
