That will teach you for playing xbox right after...

Open it and give it a clean.

Compressed air?

Xbox controllers are for playing games not with yourself.

Proably a bit of sweat or something. Best to dismantle the controller and clean under the buttons.

Google a dismantling guide, I believe you will need a torx screwdriver and give it a good clean, you probably have bits of dead skin from hand sweat, controllers get grubby easily. Perhaps consider a silicon cover for it in future.

You would think that would be obvious, but not to the OP for some reason.

ha ha, there is always that but the way I look at it, if they put it together okay in the factory then anyone can do it. I just keep trying till all the pieces fit.
