  2. Checking battery

    Step One - Get Xbox one controller.

    Step Two - Remove batteries.

    Step Three - Put batteries into Xbox 360 Controller.

    Step Four - Check batteries on Xbox 360.

    Step Five - ???

    Step Six - Profit.

  3. Xbox one controller won't work at all

    Hi there Thomasarus21,

    I want to first verify the batteries you are using, brand, power, etc.

    -I start here because this controller does not function off the same power as the xbox 360 controller. Also all batteries are not created to fully function on the xbox one controller. I assume you are using the batteries that come with the controller...but
    just in case....

    Here is something you've probably read but I thought to post it just in case :

    AA Batteries -
    support.xbox.com/.../using-aa-batteries


    Rechargeable batteries -
    support.xbox.com/.../wireless-controller-rechargeable-batteries


    In short the resolution is to first buy two batteries per the support link (based on your preferences) but I'm not trying to discount that you may have, in some way purchased a bad controller two times.

  5. What i did in one of my controllers that's using regular rechargeable batteries is I found some foam, and taped it to the back of the battery cover. it holds it all in place...i imagine many things could be substituted for the foam, but this makes it all
    nice and snug. is this ridiculous, you BETCHA that we even have to do this. Now the optional "battery packs" fit snug and don't do this. Why would that be?, sure MS would love for us to all buy a rechargeable battery. I hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but
    I digress as that's for another place and time.

    I bent the metal contacts out a little bit more and so far so good - no disconnects since doing that.

    Design lab controllers

    Hi there,

    The controllers come with a standard controller battery cover (same as the other Xbox controllers). You can use either a rechargeable battery pack, or regular AA batteries. No different from other Xbox One controllers.

    the charging station is strange

    Hello gamer,

    This behavior can occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:

    . The battery has reached the charge limit.

    . There may be an issue with the charge cable.

    . There may be an issue with the battery.

    Things to try:

    1. Determine the part of the recharging system that may be causing the issue.

    Controller

    Try AA batteries or try a different Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack in the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to verify that there is nothing wrong with the controller. If the controller works with different batteries, the controller is not causing the issue.

    Charge cable

    Try a different Xbox 360 Play and Charge cable to charge the battery. If the battery charges correctly with a different charge cable, the original charge cable is faulty.

    Rechargeable battery

    a. Use a cotton swab and some alcohol to clean the four gold contacts on the Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack and on the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller.

    b. Try a different Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack with the charge cable. If the second battery charges correctly, the original battery is faulty.

    . There may be an issue with the battery.

    Xbox one controller says it's connected but isn't working

    To resolve this issue, determine the faulty component and then replace that component:

    The Xbox One Wireless Controller

    To troubleshoot the wireless controller, try using AA batteries, or try a different Xbox One Rechargeable Battery Pack to verify that nothing is wrong with the controller. If the controller works with different batteries, it isn't causing the issue.

    The Xbox One Play & Charge cable

    To check whether the cable is the problem, try a different Play & Charge cable (or any standard USB to micro-USB cable) to charge the battery. If the battery charges correctly with a different cable, your charge cable is faulty.

    The rechargeable battery

    To troubleshoot the rechargeable battery, try the following:

    Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to clean the four gold contacts on the Xbox One Rechargeable Battery Pack and on the Xbox One Wireless Controller. Then try to charge the battery again.

    Try a different Xbox One Rechargeable Battery Pack with the charge cable. If the second battery charges correctly, your original battery is faulty.
