Checking all of them under highly magnifying glass could sometimes reveal the cause too. I had a situation when an FB was seemingly intact but was in fact mechanically broken. When measuring, the pressure caused the problem to disappear but it became apparent when perusing under magnification and differently applied pressure.

Take a look at

and then at the Joystick port pin 8 on both ports.

Those are essentially a circuit of 2 coils and one capacitor to GND. 
They look about like a capacitor with 3 pins from the outside.
