Maybe one is dead? Or any other possible reason. Have you tried switching the sticks around?

Do both work by themselves?

No need to bump, it was only yesterday when you posted last.

Return them and get another set, I've seen this issue often in the shop where I work, I just replace them and eventually find a pair that works.
