Fix: PS3 Random Button Press

So my PS3 controller / joystick automatically started scrolling and pressing random buttons. I tried resetting and re-syncing it to no help. After a little research on the internet, I found that the reason this happens is because a foam that shrivels up and stops the circuit ribbon from responding properly.

Fortunately the problem is easy to resolve and after a little tinkering I got it to work. Now the button and scroll pads function how they are supposed to. All you need is a screwdriver and some tape (scotch & electric both work).

Check out the video tutorial fix below :
