Pitch bend not working

Pitch bend does not return to zero value so every time I use it the keyboard is out of tune by a semitones or so.

quite unhappy as don't use the keyboard mor than an hour or so a week and its barely a year old.

any way around this or do I need to buy a new pitch mod stick?

Just recalibrate it, like here:-

Also, uf you're not using it a great deal then ensure you put a dust cover/something over it - My SL used to be terrible on the pitch bend if i left it sitting around, i would have to waggle it for a while to get it working correctly, and i could only put it down to dust getting in maybe.
