My Right Controller joystick fell out of the socket.

Is there any way to get this working. I'd rather not have to shell out hundreds of dollars for just a right controller. Thanks in advance. FYI, my warranty just ran out. I just finished contacting support.

Can't you just super glue it back on? It looks like the post is still intact. I would have thought the joystick was one piece.

Wow Evan, looks like that controller's seen some great gaming! True: Some of those resale prices look closer to a Quest 2. But note that while you check out good repair suggestions like from @crxefx, you can still enjoy games that support hand tracking: https://support.oculus.com/articles/headsets-and-accessories/controllers-and-hand-tracking/hand-trac.... Thanks for reaching out to the community! ~Geo

Thanks for the response. I have to believe there is a way to fix this as no piece (that I can see) is physically damaged. Should I contact @crxefx  or wait for him to respond here, or has he already made a tutorial on how to fix this. Once again, thanks! ~Evan

I think Support meant that @crxefx 's suggestion of supergluing the end back on might be a good option.

 

If it hasn't broken, does the bit that's come off have a pocket in the base where it would normally attach to the stem? in which case that should make gluing it back on a reasonable strong result.

oops. Didn't realize the first response was by him. Thanks

The post is intact, however the joystick doesn't fit back into the hole.

Ok in that case it sounds like it was a break and there's not much material cross section to glue.

 

Personally I'd use a dremel to drill a small hole maybe 5mm into each part then put a metal pin into both combined with glue. But unless you're into very small fiddly work, it wouldn't be easy. The Touches aren't really designed to be taken apart but there are teardown guides on the net that show how. The joystick looks to be an integral part of the PCB so there's not much point buying a second hand one cheap for parts unless you knew the PCB was OK on that and you felt happy about disassembling them.

 

Failing all of the above, buying one would be the only other choice.

 Do they still make the oculus quest 1 controllers?
