Maybe the title isn't fitting to my problem, but I'd like to ask if someone had a similar experience/problem as me.
After work today I went back to my room and started playing Metroid Return of Samus from sleep mode
(Just got.to the section with the wave beam, but thats not important anyways)
As I was starting to go right on the screen my joy suddenly got stuck and it wouldn't move, so I used a bit of force to get it moving again. After that it started working normal again but with a small difference, the movements are spot on, perfect but there is a sound from it like its hitting into a foil or something like that.
Is that a sign that I will have to replace my joy soon or nothing to.fear of?
Did anyone else had the same experience?
Before any theories get up I must admit of using the 3ds quite a lot
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate 200hrs+
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 140hrs+
Pokemon Omega Ruby 190hrs+
Xenoblade 3D 100hrs+
Pokemon Moon and Ultra Moon 230hrs+ combined
And many other games that I have at least 20-50hrs (and I have 63)

If you want a picture to it I can give you one but since my english isn't that good I couldn't really address what I wanted to know
And if this is your best answer to it
Its irrelevant and can be considered spamming now go back to your corner if you can't explain me my problem

I'd say you replace that stick, module and thumb cap, and be done with it. That noise is going to bother the crap out of you unless you game with headphones. Maybe buy a 2nd/3rd spares as you game very heavily. There's a loaded spring that causes the stick to drift center. A noisy spring means it is binding and on it's way out.

Not sure if the O3DSXL module is the same as the N3DSXL.

Thanks :)
Yeah I don't even have it for a year so I guess that's the thing then
The joy also feels kind of weird after that happened like its getting stuck a bit (very hard noticeable if you aren't playing a lot)
But I guess pokemon breeding in moon and ultra moon killed it after circling it so much
