  1. Microsoft/Xbox Needs a way to Reset Controller Firmware to Factory Settings and to also...


    I had finally bought an Xbox Controller/Replacement that worked really well and it had pristine audio on it and it was doing a great job with how it powered my wired headset. Then, I updated the firmware for the controller and it caused a downgrade in both the quality of the power output as well as the quality of the audio coming from the mic port with the headset that was connected. If I had to pinpoint a percentage of degradation, it would be 50%. I say 50% because i noticed that the audio was significantly less clear, and the headset as i have mentioned also was not getting enough power due to the firmware update.

    That being said, I believe there should be an option in the Xbox Accessories App that would allow any and all users to Restore The Controller Firmware back to the Original Factory settings. I have seen posts all over in other websites that were asking if there was a way to restore the controllers firmware back to factory defaults, and there is currently not a way to do that. That is only part of the problem. The Quality Of The Mic Port On The Xbox Controller also needs to be improved. For example, it took me buyingreplacing 4 different controllers before I found one that worked. Once i found one that worked, it was great. Then, the firmware update came along and ruined it. I felt the need to post this because I know it needs to be addressed and also that a large number of users have run into this problem.

    Also, please improve the quality of the 3.5mm jack, its audio quality, and the quality of power on how it powers the headsets connected to it.

    This is a serious quality issue that needs to be addressed. (The controller I had before it was updated with new controller firmware was great) Then, as I said, the firmware update ruined the quality of the controllers performance from a power and audio quality standpoint. The way the buttons worked were left alone, but the audio and power quality that the controller was outputting was not like its factory default. The factory default firmware for the controller was amazing. The updated firmware took down the quality significantly.

    There should be 2 separate options to revert to original factory firmware and a way to revert to previous firmware of the controller. I think thats all the details. Please fix this Microsoft. These issues need to be addressed. I mean I've spent like probably $280 or more on new controllers just because of all this. That isnt fair to me or anyone that has had to go through this. Please fix this, Thank You.

    :)

    xbox controller home button issue wont resolve

    Tried a soft reset. Still not working :-(

    Home button will turn the xbox on still but not register...

    My last two thoughts..

    A full factory reset...

    Or

    If there's a way to reset the controller firmware to factory and reinstall via USB....

    The xbox tells me my controller is up to date... but I feel something went awry while updating firmware via bluetooth

    Sensativity issue

    Start the accessories app and see if there is a way to reset the controller to default settings. Also check for firmware update.

    Xbox Keeps moving to screen right

    Hi there,

    You can update your controller from the Xbox Accessories app found in your system apps or you can go to Kinect & Devices in your settings to open the app that way. First make sure the controller is connected with a USB cable. From the app select the three
    dots and then Firmware version and then update now.

    If that doesn't help then you may need to do a
    soft factory reset
    since you say that the issue persists even with another controller.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Wheel/controller app connectivity

    The wheel is recognised as an Xbox 360 Controller in Test Drive Unlimited 2, so it's an issue in Xbox specific apps like the Applications or Forza. It's not the TX version of the wheel, so doesn't need the firmware. Is there a way of resetting any Xbox
    for Windows settings?

    Xbox One S Sound prob

    Hi there,

    Do you have a USB cable for the controller and does your headset have an adapter with it or does it connect via 3.5mm? I recommend downloading the most recent controller firmware update while connected to the console via USB and have the headset plugged
    into the controller. Open up your Xbox Accessories app then select the 3 dots option below Configure. Select Firmware version and then Update now. You can download the update even if the controller is up to date.

    If that doesn't help you may need to try a soft factory reset on the operating system:
