    edit; i screwed up the title

    Ok, so, I was playing Minecraft with my friends, and we decided to have a battle. Ok, cool! I look at one of my friends to hit him with my sword aaaaaand... the camera moves away?!?!?!
    Yeah, so this really happened. It happens with my right joy-cons. However, the joy-cons that are affected the most, are newer than my grey joy-cons. I also noticed it mostly happens in Minecraft, and NES classic games. It's super annoying, and makes the games basically impossible. The right buttons, are also affected by this bug. It mostly happens with my red-blue joy-cons. Don't wanna risk losing these joy-cons, as I have a vacation coming up in 2 weeks, so I need a fix ASAP. Thanks! Pika

    Dock? Drifting?!?! :wacko:

    Anyways, If it’s still under warranty, ask for replacement. If not, try the fix mentioned on some youtube tutorial. If those doesn’t fix the “joycon” drift, then you need to replace the thumb sticks.

    Usually moving the right stick will return it to normal

    a fit of spasms and accidental black magic
    It's a known joycon issue, a lawsuit has been recently filed regarding it.

    There are guides on the internet as to how joy con drift can be fixed. Try looking at them for a solution?
