I found out that what I am talking about is the Dead Zone of the controller isn't what I'm used to. Is there any way to fix it to where I am used to it?
Hello everyone, I'm having an issue with a recently purchased Ps3 Ds3 Controller I bought from Gamestop. All the buttons work perfectly fine and all but while playing Black Ops Zombies I realized that the analog sticks seem to be rather resistant. With my previous controller, even the slightest movement of my thumb would be registered. But with this new controller, I can't aim precisely at all because when I move the right analog stick it'll jump to somewhere I didn't want it to aim rather than it moving where I wanted it to. For example, if I am trying to aim at a zombie to the right of me, usually I can easily move the analog stick to the right where I need to be aiming. With this controller, however, this isn't the case. If I try to aim to the right directly to the zombie it won't smoothly let me aim my gun, it will jump to the right, usually too far to the right so I have to aim left again and then right, repeating that process until I finally get the zombie in my sights. I also found that if I drop my sensitivity back to the default of Medium(2) I can aim a bit more smoothly but having that low of a sensitivity really frustrates me (I usually play at Very High(7). Is there any way I can get into the controller and fix this problem with the analogs? Or maybe after prolonged use the controller will stop this bad habit?
Any feedback is much appreciated so thank you in advance!

I've tried a few things to fix this: I opened the controller, took off the analog sticks, sprayed a small amount of WD-40 into the 3-pin analog stick parts attached to the circuit board, and put on different analogs. No improvement.
