Joysticks with the faulty diagonal syndrom

I've had my share of faulty joysticks, just like anyone. Some of them are easy to fix, some of them aren't.

There's a particular problem I haven't been able to cope with yet. Diagonals. I've encountered a few joysticks where one of the diagonals don't work properly, and I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. I'm thinking of those where you really have to fight to get the character to move diagonally.

I'm sure some of you can relate to the problem, but I wonder if there's a easy fix to it? For instance, I have a Genesis/Megadrive arcade stick that's having this problem, and I find them completely unusable when you have to fight to get your guy moving in an left-upwards direction for instance, like in Alien Breed. Anyone have any tips?

Look for scewed switches, broken wire (inside ur cable)
no wrong conection in the joystick

If that aint it... and there is a chip in it... that can be giving the bugs then
