Answers :

Sounds like the joystick is sticking, the only thing you can do would be to take apart the joystick and with a slightly damp washcloth, and clean off the joystick. Then after you clean all the stickiness off, put the joystick back together and the screws back on and it should react like normal.

Courtesy of Ehow here is the link that gives instructions on how to take apart the controller:

Before I say anything, this solution is best used on controllers not covered by warranties. I am not responsible if you void your warranty by attempting this repair. Controllers go bad after a couple thousand Lan parties.
Step 1-When you take apart the controller and get the motors out of the way, you'll notice that you can't quite take apart the joystick housing because it is sealed to the circuit board.
Step 2-You must really be careful with. Upon visual inspection of the problem joystick housing you'll notice that there is a copper retainer on top. Carefully remove this piece of copper without contorting it.(this is what controls your x axis movement).
Step 3-is a bit tricky, you must separate the joystick from it's retaining sides. You'll notice a plastic sprocket looking thing moving around at the bottom of the metal housing box. That plastic sprocket should indeed be stationary over that laminated button that controls your "crouch/scope in". Secure it anyway you wish(superglue works fine). Then realign the spring inside the joystick with that sprocket and put everything else you removed back on in the same steps you took them off.
Complete- When you are finished your joystick should spring back into place exactly where you glued down that sprocket.(if not, then the spring must not have lined up when you reattached the joystick. Repeat and line that spring up) Problem solved.
