Well, after some years... it seems the left joystick is starting to break or malfunction.
The fire button is what is not working correctly, it has a delay now.. and often have to push hard to make it fire or jump properly.

I opened the joystick up and seems to be a bit rough the plastic right where the fire has been hitting over the years. Anyone have this happen?

Would tape help it work better, by covering/taping that ragged scraped area?

If the contacts are not too worn, putting some tape on it might help a bit. It won't hurt to try.
