    Elite Series 2 Controller shows as "Paired" with PC, but wont stay connected


    I just recently got an Elite series 2 controller to game with on my PC and the setup seemed easy enough. Make sure PC bluetooth is on, hold pair button and let them pair, PLAY!

    It didnt work out that way. My PC had a very hard time finding the controller as a bluetooth device and wont find it at all any other way. Once it does find it, it will lose it over and over and take several tries before it pairs completely. My PC doesnt find it automatically, I have to manually click ADD bluetooth device to even look for it.

    Once it says connected and paired, the XBOX logo stays flashing white and doesnt stop. The controller doesnt really work at all. Occasionally, the light will go solid and it will work, but generally only for a second or two, then it goes back to flashing and isnt responsive. It seems like the bluetooth connection simply wont stay or isnt very good.

    I have tried:

    -Unpairing and repairing multiple times

    -trouble shooting bluetooth issues

    -updated controller(The xbox accessories app wont see controller unless its plugged in)

    - tested the controller when plugged in with the usb, works fine

    I am on Windows 10 and have several other bluetooth devices connected that dont show any problems at all staying connected

    :)

    Hello, Mayshar. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    May I know if you have tried all the troubleshooting steps on the URL below?

    Would you please try to unpair all bluetooth devices connected to your computer right now and try to pair only the controller to see if the issue persists?

    Waiting for your reply.

    Xbox Elite wireless controller series 2 bluetooth problem!

    I got it to connect to my ipad Pro 11 IOS 13.2. But it is having trouble staying connected. For newer bluetooth devices Apple put the pairing under the Switch Control menu.

    To get it connected go into Settings, Accessibility, Switch Control, Bluetooth Devices. Then put the Xbox One Elite Series 2 into pairing mode and it should show up here. It takes a good couple minutes to finish pairing for some reason. I had it connected
    the first time and it was good but now its disconnecting and reconnecting a bunch. Not sure why. FYI, this is also where you can connect bluetooth mice to use it with a virtual desktop app.

    Controllers won't stay connected - Xbox Series X

    Updates:

    Paired both controllers to console at the same time. Both controllers lost and regain sync at the same time.

    Paired Elite controller to iPhone. No disconnects.

    Paired one controller to console and other to phone. Controller connected to console disconnected, controller connected to iPhone stayed connected.

    Xbox Elite 2 Controller issue.

    Hello xPandaSanx,

    Have you connected your Xbox Elite Series 2 controller to anything else? If so, remove it from there, unpair it from your PC.

    If you haven't already, download the Xbox Accessories App for the PC, connect your Elite Series 2 controller via USB-C and update the controller. (Make sure your PC is up to date too). After it's updated, then try pairing it via Bluetooth again.

    Let me know if that helps,

    -Hayabusa
