    Hello there!
    So I got a used Vita 1000 from a second hand store for a good price, but they didn't have a game for me to try. When I tested it out the left stick was not moving up or down. I swapped the analog sticks and the other is fine. I opened up the vita to clean it and I disassembled the analog stick to see if it could be dirt. I found that the 4 small springs were really dirty and had some dirt in them I cleaned them out and nothing. Someone who was able to fix this?

    The replacement analog stick is it third party or it is from another vita?

    No replacement I swapped the originals since the left one is more important and the right one was working fine. Both are original. I think I will have to replace the faulty one.

    It's really hard to find reasonable priced sticks for a 1000, the newer model sticks are cheap but not for the original .
    I've needed one for a while to, works out not much more just to buy a faulty complete one.

    I found one for 10$ on aliexpress and fixed my vita in 5 minutes. It was worth it!
