My thumbsticks seem to be drifting/moving without me touching them. How can I fix this?

If you find that the XBOX One controller's thumbsticks are showing movement without being touched, your controller may need to be recalibrated.  Please follow the provided instructions below to re-calibrate your controller.
 

  1. Power the XBOX one console on.
  2. Plug the smaller end of the controllers USB-B micro cable into the top of the controller.
  3. Hold down on the directional pad (D-Pad) and plug the larger side of the USB cable into the XBOX one console while still holding down.
  4. The controllers red LED lights will illuminate and the controller will begin to vibrate. You may then release the down input on the directional pad (D-Pad)
  5. Press A on the controller.
  6. The controller will then stop vibrating and the LED lights will power off.
  7. Fully rotate both joysticks in a complete clockwise motion and pull each trigger fully (LT and RT)

Press down on the directional pad (D-Pad)
