Author Topic: (new guy, first post) Possible problem with Caanoo analog stick/nub.  (Read 1925 times)

spiteface (OP)

I've had a Caanoo since about February, which I have mostly been very happy with for what I wanted to use it for, which is primarily Megadrive and SNES emulation.

Recently I have noticed something odd happening.

I've been playing a fair bit of Mario of late, mainly Super Mario All-Stars and Super Mario World on SNES via Dr Pocket SNES. For some reason for like a split second, on occasions I start involuntarily crouching, like it's picking up that I am pressing "down" on the stick, when I am not. This has also happened with Super Mario Land in OhBoy, which leads me to believe the issue might be with the stick.

Has anyone had this problem before? Is there any way to fix it? I'm not keen on the idea of opening it up, for fear of messing things up even more, but I suppose I could give it a go...

Thanks.

Well I had a problem where it would keep going left.. maybe for now try some conpressed air to blow and crap that Might be in there and then the smallest bit of WD40 or something of that nature something electronically friendly,
You can achive both these without opening the caanoo ;)

Hope this helps you 8)

Sounds like you just need to adjust the deadzone setting on those emulators, most emulators have a config for this now as each Caanoo is different.

Thank you both for your suggestions.

None of the emulators where I have noticed this problem have an option for adjusting the deadzone setting.

I didn't buy a can of compressed air, but I did try the old-timey NES cartridge methood of blowing into something that doesn't work.  I have not experienced my problem since, so fingers crossed, I may have sorted it out.

Now to play the hell out of it again!
