    My Series X Controller refuses to connect and doesn't register any console.


    Not sure how much more descriptive I can be. And before you say to use the sync buttons, guess what? The one on my Xbox doesn't work, so that won't be a useful piece of advice. Already tried the other ways to fix it, and nothing works. It's amazing that Sony can fix this same issue, but Microsoft can't make their controllers stay connected for more than 3 hours.

    Xbox series controller unresponsive when connected wirelessly

    Apologies but you are not understanding me.

    The scenario goes like this:

    Purchased xbox series controller;

    Connected and updated series controller on laptop;

    Attempted to play a game on laptop;

    Controller input is not present;

    In some games the controller doesn't appear in the setup;

    In some games the controller registers but the inputs are incorrect, sometimes the z-axis registers as a button (x button) and not a movement;

    Connected controller to tablet and mobile phone and controller input is fine;

    Is the problem my games or my controller firmware not syncing with the games?

    Is there a fix?

    Controller left trigger sticking

    This limited warranty that you have covers only the hardware of the console (Xbox Series X), the control only has the 3-month warranty which is the term offered for accessories and devices from the Xbox brand.

    *I recommend that you try to register the controller on the website, if it doesn't work, it's because Microsoft doesn't support this out-of-warranty controller.

    Registered Devices Not Showing

    So, I just tested this to see:

    I registered my Series X controller.

    Sure enough, it said it was registered but wasn't showing up

    I then clicked "see details" on my Series X entry which took me to my Series X

    I then clicked "All Devices" to take me back to the previous screen and the controller then showed up.

    So, not entirely sure why it won't work for you

    Electric Volt controller connect to Win10 via cable

    Hi,

    Almost any USB C to USB A cable (your standard USB Phone/tablet charge cable) will work fine for PC or console gaming with a Series X type controller. I use a 2M USB C cable to connect my Series X controller to my PC.

    I don't have any Bluetooth issues, but using a cable does avoid changing the batteries so much. 😁

    Vanguard Controller issue ...

    Connecting the controller with a USB cable doesn't work,

    Controller still disconnects even with a USB cable connected,

    I have the same issue with Series X using mouse and keyboard for Call of Duty Vanguard.

    I played during the beta and there was no problems with the controller disconnecting but as soon as the game released, the controller disconnects,

    I've tried a Xbox One controller Series X controller, with batteries and a USB cable, and the controllers still disconnects.
