Left controller keeps scrolling down

Level 2

I’ve had my quest2 for about a year and now when I try to play any game or even in the menu my left controller keeps scrolling downwards, does anyone know how to fix this?

Oculus Support, my new Quest 2 does the same thing, right out of the box. And as a very long-time gamer I can tell you this is not a "drift" problem. On every menu pointing the left controller anywhere inside the active window will cause that window to scroll.

It's stick drift, most of the Quest controllers have this problem sooner or later (mostly "sooner" actually... terrible hardware quality).

Be aware that this scammers are not replacing them, once you ship them to RMA, they will stop reply to you, and you are stuck without the chance to use the headset for months. Many people in this situation.

I had this problem and it was that the joystick was slightly out of whack and causing a permanent scroll.  A cleaning spray fixed the problem, like electrical contact cleaner.
