  1. Why does my brand new Xbox controller keep disconnecting ?


    I have an Xbox One S. And a brand new controller and headset - not even 6 hours old yet.

    While I’m playing the game , I have static in my headset and others have trouble hearing me because of the connectivity issue. Also, my controller keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. Sometimes I’ll have to power it back on if it doesn’t by itself.

    This was an issue I had before with my old controller and headset and I just got new ones.

    I’ve done the unplugging of the cords, power cycles, hard resets, battery charging/new batteries and pairing the controller to Xbox again.

    Does anyone have an actual answer to why this is happening ? Please do not give me any bs answers telling me to do what I’ve done and “hope that helps.” It didn’t.

    Please for the love of all things holy, does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix both the static issue with the headset and connectivity issue with the controller ? It’s driving me nuts and I’d really prefer not to go to Sony or PC.

    :)

    Why does my brand new Xbox controller keep disconnecting ?

    Hello Giovanni V, my name is Oskayra, and I will be happy to help you.

    Beforehand, it is important that you keep in mind that this is a public community forum, so we are players like you, we are not employees of Microsoft or Xbox, so we do not have access to any user account or check anything from the forum. All users help each other with common problems.

    I am very sorry for the problem you are going through, with the intention of helping you I was investigating and I found in Xbox Support, a series of steps that they recommend when you have problems connecting the controller:

    1. Check battery level: Replace controller batteries with new ones, or make sure rechargeable controllers can be recharged. (Do this if your controller still has power; low batteries can cause issues and functionality.)

    2. Turn your console completely off and turn it back on by pressing and holding the Xbox  button on the front of the console for approximately 10 seconds. Once the console turns off, unplug the power cable from the console for 30 seconds, and then plug the console back in. You must press the Xbox  button to start the console.

    3. If your controller still won't connect to your console after completely turning off your console and turning it back on, try connecting your controller directly to your console using a USB-C cable (or USB to micro-USB cable for Xbox One controllers ).

    If the control works correctly with a wired connection, continue to the next step.

    4. If the controller does not work when connected with a USB cable, please carefully check that the problem is not related to the cable or port. Try a different cable or port or connect to another device. If you have verified that the cable and port work, and the controller does not work when plugged in, you should replace the controller.

    5. Update the control firmware. You can do this on your console by pressing the Xbox  button to open the guide, then selecting Profile & system > Settings > Devices & connections > Controllers & headsets. Select "... on the controller you are trying to troubleshoot to check the firmware status.

    Thank you for your patience, I hope everything can be resolved. I will be attentive to your response. Blessings.

    Sincerely,
    Oskayra.

    [Solved] Xbox controllers disconnecting

    Thanks, CristofKaiser, indeed with a brand new controller it keeps disconnecting, so it's not the controller. [Update:] now the controllers work on my PC, but still no news on the Xbox One.

    I'll keep you posted if I find a solution.

    Anyone else ?
