  1. Controller Problems? Am I going crazy?


    long time xbox player, always had gold, and I used to love customising xbox controllers. I keep replacing my NEW controllers after a few months. I just don't understand, seems obvious they arn't built to last even 6 months. I baby all my stuff
    putting the controller back in the box after use and here I am 2 months out with the same problems as the last two controllers. Do I start up a 95% working controller buisness? Someone help me from turning my back on the greed of this obvious obselence,
    I just wanna play some xbox ‍♂️

    :)

    Controller Problems? Am I going crazy?

    Hi there,

    have you tried testing the controller,

    if you press the home button

    Go to settings

    then select All setting

    Scroll to Kinect and devices

    Select devices

    and test the controller

    this can advise if the controller is working or not.

    if its in warranty just get a free replacement. I also advise to buy insurance when purchasing a controller if available, I get my controllers from my local ARGOS and can change my controller at the end of 3 year or before if it gets damaged or breaks.

    I've been gaming on xbox for [Mod Removed- Profanity] near fifteen years and I can't even fathom the number of controllers I've destroyed. I now own three xbox elite controllers and two are broken. The 3rd controller I just bought yesterday.

    I buy a protection plan every time nowadays. If you know the controller's gonna break or malfunction under your ownership, you should spend the extra cash for a protection plan. You'll save money in the long run. If you get two controllers with a protection
    plan each, you'll always have a backup even when you gotta send one in.

    Controller Problems? Am I going crazy?

    Hi there Jeffery Wafflez

    Thanks for visiting the forums today, I am sorry you are having issues with your controllers.

    I am wondering if your controllers are Official Microsoft Xbox ones, Officially licensed 3rd party ones or if you use 3rd party unlicensed controllers that some retailers sell?? Like Parity, my controllers are over 4 years old now and still work perfectly...
    I have had no issues with my Xbox one controllers at all and I use an officially licensed recharging station. I always use official Xbox controllers or officially licensed ones as their quality I find is far superior to the 3rd party unlicensed ones.

    Official Xbox controllers do come with a 90 day warranty and as Parity advised you can request a repair from Microsoft on those following the steps he gave... most controllers from other retailers usually come with a short warranty also. If you have purchased
    yours from a 3rd party retailer, it may be worth going back to them with proof of purchase to ask for a replacement or refund.

    Controller Problems? Am I going crazy?

    you are not going crazy. Xbox One controllers are not as sturdy as previous Xbox controllers. I still have a 10 year old 360 controller (it's an Afterglow controller if anyone is interested) and that had heavy use and still works, yet the One controllers
    seem to get stick drift after a few months and the buttons start behaving weirdly.

    sometimes buttons are not recognised and other times a single press counts as multiple inputs (not helpful if it happens changing gear in a racing game as a shift down from 2nd to 1st gear will often see me going into reverse and that's the race lost).

    it's such a shame that you can't use the 360 pad on the One
