    Controller battery level and warning not working and damaging batteries.


    Since the last preview update I no longer get a warning or prevented from using my controller when my batteries are dead. I had this issue with a far back previous update but this time it flat out lets me KILL my eneloops. It constantly shows my battery
    as 3/4 full when pressing the xbox button or if I go into devices it shows a different a different reading of slightly less but never shows my batteries as dead. Twice now it drained my eneloops down to 0.51v each and anyone familiar with rechargeables know
    that is not good at all. Some how my controller was working fine using a combined total of 1v which shouldn't even be possible even if the xbox has an issue. This is something that should be in the controller to prevent damaging batteries. Such abuse to batteries
    certainly damages them and eneloops aren't cheap. Luckily I don't use alkaline because doing that to those would most likely cause a leak especially with cheap ones. When four of these batteries go for $15+ this becomes an issue. Besides this issue coming
    back far worse then ever I am also having the screen dimming issue that seemed to be fixed with the last media player update. After a week of working great when casting videos from my pc it all of a sudden started dimming like it did the second this NXOE dashboard
    came along.

    Controllers will not turn on anymore

    I'm with agreement with Sage to Rage when it comes to the battery acid damaging the controller. However for the other two that were not damaged, I would guess that the batteries are not making a solid connection with the controller. Are you using the AA
    battery insert? I have had problems with those myself in that while playing the batteries would not fit in snug enough and my controller would randomly turn off.

    If that's the case I would suggest using an Xbox battery pack instead. You can pick one up an official Microsoft one for about $10, or a third party one, such as Nyko, for a little less.

  3. Controller connected but blinking

    What does it mean when I am playing with a Wireless controller that is connected, but the lights on the XBox button keep blinking, alternating across the diagonal: 1,4 then 2,3 and back to 1,4

    The controller otherwise seems to be working normally - when I press the XBox button the battery level shows 2bars or at least half full so it doesn't seem to be a battery level warning.

    Controller not working

    Controller issues can be a result of multiple problems. 1: Battery issues, low battery level or loose battery. 2: In game control settings. 3: At worse it could be controller damage, which you will need to get fixed or buy a new one.

    What’s wrong with my battery pack/controllers

    Hi and thanks for reaching out. I hope you’re doing well. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you and I'll be happy to help you.

    There could be a problem with the rechargeable battery pack or the controller's battery compartment. Kindly try the following and see if it helps:

    1. Check that the battery pack is properly inserted: If the battery pack is not properly inserted, the controller will not turn on. Check that the battery pack is securely connected to the controller and that the contacts are clean and debris-free.

    2. Inspect the controller's battery compartment: Inspect the controller's battery compartment to ensure that there are no damaged or corroded contacts. If you notice any damage, you may need to replace the controller or contact the manufacturer for repairs.

    3. Check the charge level of the battery pack: Before attempting to use the battery pack with the new controller, ensure that it is fully charged. If the battery pack is not fully charged, it may not be able to turn on the controller.

    4. If the preceding steps do not work, try using a different rechargeable battery pack with the new controller to see if it works. If it does, the original battery pack may be defective and must be replaced.

    Play & Charge Kit - Cable Only

    On the paperwork that comes with the Play & Charge Kit, it warns about trying to use the charging cable without a battery pack. The warning indicates that doing so could damage your controller. With that said, I have heard of people doing so without issues.
    So it can work, but if the controller is damaged, you'll have to replace it.

    Xbox One controller: Trigger vibration?

    You cannot check the battery level on the controller, however I would assume that it is because of low battery level! try new batteries, and if that doesn't work maybe there is an internal problem as there is no way currently to turn off rumble!

    i can using two parallel battery 14500 xbox?

    No, only AA batteries or the official battery packs

    even if it may fit, using other batteries may damage the controller
