Control Sticks Are Not Responding or Respond Incorrectly on Nintendo Switch Lite

The information in this article can help you when the control sticks do not respond or respond incorrectly on Nintendo Switch Lite.

What to do

  1. If there are any wireless controllers paired to the system, use the touch screen to verify that the Console Button Input setting is set to On.

  2. Ensure your system has the latest system update.

  3. Calibrate the control sticks.

  4. If the issue is occurring with a specific game or application, try the following:

    • Check for any available software updates for that game.

    • Check the electronic manual for that game. Some games, such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, support in-game tilt controls. If these are activated, it may seem as if the control sticks are not responding correctly. If this is the case, the in-game tilt controls may need to be deactivated.

Situation not resolved

If the control sticks cannot be calibrated, or if the control sticks are not responding correctly, the Nintendo Switch Lite console may need to be inspected. Please click here to contact us for further support.
