I have a similar problem when I click in L3 it stops running, then wont let me walk for a second and then moves a small bit and same thing over and over again! I bought a new controller 2 weeks ago and it is the very same happins any help?
Well guys, I had the same problem a few months ago with the original remote that came with the console, I guessed it was gone and bought a new one, yesterday the new one started messing up too, so I decided that I wouldn't buy another one, that I had to try fix the ones I have, well I read one post that said the he pulled the stick up and down and that helped, and decided to try that before disassembling them, well it might sound crazy but it worked, when you pull you will fell like they come out of place, then u push back and try playing, repeat until they work, it took me 5 tries in one 3 in the other, but they are both working as new
Its messed up on BF too. Sometimes it will sprint and soemtimes it wont. The controller is garbage to be honest. Its the only thing I dont like about the PS4.
Just noticed this is about PS3. Im having something similar go on my PS4.
