I ordered a wii u online and when I got it the left analog stick has issues. It has it's own mind and rapidly moves on its own and it really bugs me! I got nintendo land and played mario chase with my friend. I would try to make my character move and it would slide against the wall and so I would try to stop, but it kept moving without me using the analog stick! Same with mario kart 8! I would choose a option and it starts rapidly moving when I gently move it once! Does anyone else have this problem and can help me with this problem? Thanks

I actually have a similar problem! My left stick automatically controls to move down at times. It used to happen every now and then but lately it's been happening a lot. Getting worried I might actually have to send it in for repair.

Every Nintendo system has that problem. My Wii did that, my Gamecube did that, my Wii U does it. That's just something every Nintendo system seems to do at times.

Well I've never encountered this before on any Nintendo console.

I've had the wii u for 2 weeks and its done that every day

Uh...guys? When you turn your systems on, you have to be sure you're not touching the control stick....otherwise it resets it's neutral position.

And I've never encountered this issue. Only when I have the control stick out of its center position when turning on a console.

Now playing:
Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS) | Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS) | Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
Dream Address: 4100-3259-5964
I would come up with a clever name for my backloggery, but my name prevents it.

I tried that earlier and just now, and I didn't even touch it until everything was turned on and at the menu, and it still did not work

I'm serious! It didn't freak out or rapidly move when I went to choose my player at a mini game, it worked well! Thank you so much!
