    Disassemble the controller and clean the buttons + shell.

    That should help 95% of the time ;]

    This.

    I've had this issue and I did the same as Dinoh, safe to say it was pretty easy and quick. Glad that was all there is to it without needing to pay for an actual fix.

    I actually got this problem as well but my start/select are also sticky.

    Do I clean the rubber dome thing under or inbetween the casing holes?

    In between the casing.
    Rubbers should be left alone as their barely prone to failure.

    Maybe you all should stop eating things when gaming or start washing your hands more.
    No offense but I never had a problem with sticky buttons and of all the people that have sticky keys, they usually get crumbs and grime between the buttons.

    If this isn't the case then I retract this statement.
    But it's usually the main cause for sticky buttons.

    It came with the $100 xbox off classifieds ^^

    Should I bother replacing the analog sticks? they don't have those corner things sticking out like the new ones do.

    That's just the caps.
    It's normal wear and tear.

    As long as they don't start drifting then it's fine.

    So I cleaned it and it doesn´t help but I know why.
    he like sticking only when I click the button to the upper right corner, if you know what I mean.
    So I guess it´s not because it´s dirty.
    it´s because shell or a button ?
    I have another controller (but with drifting analog sticks) so I can replace the shell or a button or both with it.
    Or is something different ?
    How can I fix it ?

    Seems like it's still sticky then.
    Better clean the housing better with toothpicks and qtips.
    Also make sure the button it self isn't sticky.

    Yes you can swap the controller PCB with each other.
