    Have to power cycle Xbox to reconnect controllers every few days


    About a month ago I got an Xbox One with two controllers. I've found that every few days, my controllers won't connect again until I do a full power cycle of my Xbox One. I'll go to turn on the Xbox with a controller, and the controller flashes until it
    shuts off again. I then fully power off the Xbox by holding the power button, power it back on, and the controller can connect again.

    The disconnect has never happened while I'm playing (though I'm not ruling out that it could). I don't believe this has anything to do with interference since it doesn't matter how close the controller is to the Xbox; it will not reconnect until the power
    cycle. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Xbox One 1TB Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Bundle Problems

    is anyone having issues where the controllers are constantly disconnecting from the xbox one and then won't reconnect? We got this same console and the controllers disconnect every few days and to get them to reconnect we have to unplug the xbox for 20
    seconds then reconnect it. using the connect buttons on the controller/console does nothing for some reason (no issues like this on the regular xbox one we have). very disappointing.

    Controller connected but won't work?!?!?!?

    My problem is similar to brydog23

    my controller works fine until it disconnects, be it i disconnected it or it stayed idle for 15 minutes, after that i hold the xbox button and the controller shows its connected, however no buttons work, not even if another controller was connected, the
    Kinect works fine however to reconnect the controller i have to power-cycle the console every-time.

    Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller

    Hi! I'm Luis, a fellow Xbox Gamer . Thanks for reaching us out here.

    Needing a wired power source to startup a controller is quite weird. Try with a regular power cycle

    Many controller issues can be resolved by putting the controller through a complete power cycle. To power cycle your controller:
    Press and hold the Xbox button  for 5-10 seconds, until the controller turns off.
    Wait a few seconds, then press and hold the Xbox button  again to turn the controller back on.
    I’ve done this a few times to no avail
