    Overly Sensitive Xbox Series X Controllers after updates


    After the recent updates, my Xbox controllers are extremely sensitive when pressing the joystick and will continue scrolling after I release it. I've looked through the settings and there is no method for adjusting this so I'm assuming that it must be software related. Any advice?

    :)

    How to reduce controller sensitivity after recent update.

    Hi Ixelhaine,

    Welcome to Microsoft Xbox Community Forum. I understand that you're experiencing issues with your controller sensitivity after the recent update.



    Firstly, I'd like to ask if you're using an Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S console? This information will help me provide you with the most accurate solution.



    If you're using an Xbox One console, you can adjust the controller sensitivity by following these steps:

    1. Press the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide.

    2. Select "Settings" and then "Ease of Access."

    3. Select "Controller" and then "Controller sensitivity."

    4. Adjust the sensitivity to your desired level.



    If you're using an Xbox Series X/S console, you can adjust the controller sensitivity by following these steps:

    1. Press the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide.

    2. Select "Profile & system" and then "Settings."

    3. Select "Ease of Access" and then "Controller."

    4. Adjust the sensitivity to your desired level.



    If you're still unable to find the "Ease of Access" tab, it's possible that your console may not have the latest update installed. You can check for updates by following these steps:

    1. Press the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide.

    2. Select "Profile & system" and then "Settings."

    3. Select "System" and then "Updates & downloads."

    4. Select "Console update available" and then follow the on-screen instructions to install the latest update.



    If you're still experiencing issues after adjusting the controller sensitivity or updating your console, it's possible that there may be an issue with your controller. You can try resetting your controller by following these steps:

    1. Press and hold the Xbox button on your controller for 10 seconds.

    2. After the controller turns off, press the Xbox button again to turn it back on.



    Let me know how it goes.

    Kind regards,
    Marrion

    Xbox Series X Sync button/synced controller stopped. Sync button must work as I am able to get to BIOS. Sync button wont blink.

    In this case, it wouldn't be a bad idea to update your controller's firmware. You can do this on your Series X or your Windows 10 PC. To do it on the Series X, connect it using the USB cable and then go to Settings > Devices & connections > Accessories, and then select the controller you want to update. On the Xbox Wireless Controller screen, select “…” to check the firmware version for your controller. Then, select the Firmware version square, and then press Next to start the update process.

    To do it on Windows 10, just download the Xbox Accessories app from the Microsoft Store. If you already have it installed, just run it. After opening the app, the procedure to update is the same one as on the Series X, press the "..." button and follow those steps.

    Check if your controller works correctly after doing this.

    Controller Sensitivity - A Must Read!

    I know you can change the dead zones and I'm pretty sure the joystick sensitivity on the Elite Controller (series 1 and 2) through the Xbox accessories app. Although I'm not sure about the standard controller, and I don't know why you would want to change
    the sensitivity of the 'A', 'B', 'X', and 'Y' buttons, if it was a thing, I could see people reducing the sensitivity of the 'A' and 'B' buttons and then losing functionality as the buttons wear out, and not be able to change it back.

    Xbox Series X controller input lag

    On Xbox Series X when some games like Doom Eternal, Crash Bandicoot 4, Psychonauts 2, Tales of Arise and Visage are launched (only Xbox Series X enhanced games and not all of them) any Xbox Series X controller incur in an input issue, with battery and with USB cable without battery: if any key or trigger is pressed rapidly it doesn't work, a sort of input lag. The issue persist in any dashboard menu, then if I turn off and turn on the controller again the problem disappear until I return to the game in background that caused the issue. Any Xbox One X controller works perfectly instead. Both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series X controller are update with the latest update. I noticed that when the issue start the usual buzzing noise of the controller change sound, a lower sound. If I plug any headphone with or without microphone in the Xbox Series X controller the commands are more responsive but the problem remains. I reported more and more times this problem to Microsoft since 3 months but still there isn't an update that resolve this issue with my great disappointment. I think this issue started since about 4 months after a system update, and I think the problem is the same of yours. Can you confirm this?
