I've tried all the suggested tricks like holding it down for 30 seconds then rotating it a bunch of times, and blowing it out with air but I think its just messed up. I've abused it pretty good too though. Many hundreds of hours in stressful games.
I've had no issues with 2 PS4 controllers. Pretty well used and a few years old. Still been used heavily by my son.
