OT: Has anyone here ever had their LB/RB button jammed?

I just dropped my controller and the LB button is stuck. I tried to move it up abit and it worked but it doesn't click at all anymore.

RIP controller or can I fix this?
Reason I am asking is because I googled it and I saw somebody say they can't get jammed at all and it means the bumper broke (and can't be fixed).

    Had it once, put a pencil in the gap, pushed it back up and it "clicked" back into place. If yours doesn't do that then the spring is done and it's ggnor I guess.

    My trigger works fine but it doesn’t register if I hold it lol so when trying to throw a grenade on COD I can’t cook it. And Fifa half the time my finesse just blasts lol

    Annoying af because my xbox is acting like I am holding down the LB button so I can literally do nothing

    I've also dropped many controllers. Even had 1 that spontaneously flew out the door, hitting the tree 10 metres away, 5 metres up :joy:

    So many, that I've fixed them myself, so you'd need to open it up to see if there is something broken (could be a small plastic part) and possibly repaired with some super glue or the like.

    Sometimes if that doesn't work you can just pop open the controller and align the holes if its too stuck to pop out. These controllers are incredibly easy to fix yourself.

    Yeah gotta get that special screwdriver first and then I'll try and open it to fix the loose button. I am terrible at fixing things though :D

    Ah yeah ... forgot about that, oops sorry. I have this 100-piece every-possible-screw-set that has saved my butt many times. Best $30 I've spent on tools.

    Have dropped 2 in the past were the lb/be straight up came out and wouldn’t stay back in. Lately the issue has been my left stick breaking every 2 months.

    just as an FYI: If you bought the console/controller first hand, Microsoft is really good about replacing faulty stuff with no charge. Replaced 2 controllers already since i bought, no questions asked.

    Only if you bought it directly from the MS store I assume?

    Ive gone through so many controllers. My biggest problem has been lb/rb and the left stick. My rb always goes bad.
