    Xbox controller spamming down on D-pad

    If you just bought it I would just take it back and get a replacement instead of messing with it. In the unlikely case the next one does the same thing I would come back here for troubleshooting but it sounds like the controller.

    Hi
    ItsOnlyMac
    ,

    Thank you for coming to the Xbox forums, I'd be happy to help.

    Does your controller work as intended when connecting to the console wireless?

    What controller do you have that you need to plug it in? Microsoft does not produce any first party Xbox One controllers with an integrated cable. You can connect any Xbox One wireless controller by plugging the controller to the console using a micro-USB
    cable.

    Go ahead and do a
    hard reset and power cycle
    . Hold down the power button on the console for about 10 seconds until it shuts down and then remove the power cable from the Xbox and the power outlet for about 2-3 minutes. Then re-connect and
    turn on the Xbox. If the controller's D-pad is still experiencing a ghost input, then it's possible the cable is the issue.

    how do you fix a pdp controller

    You can try resetting your PDP controller. Follow these steps:

    1. Power the XBOX one console on.
    2. Plug the smaller end of the controllers USB-B micro cable into the top of the controller.
    3. Hold down on the directional pad (D-Pad) and plug the larger side of the USB cable into the XBOX one console while still holding down.
    4. The controllers red LED lights will illuminate and the controller will begin to vibrate. You may then release the down input on the directional pad (D-Pad)
    5. Press A on the controller.
    6. The controller will then stop vibrating and the LED lights will power off.
    7. Fully rotate both joysticks in a complete clockwise motion and pull each trigger fully (LT and RT)
    8. Press down on the directional pad (D-Pad)

    Horrible Controller.

    Guys let me just be clear the problem is with the D-PAD and not the ABXY buttons.

    The d-pad sticks randomly in one direction and I have to go crazy on it to calibrate it lol.

    Also the d-pad is very retarded sometimes and moves in a direction different to what I pushed.

    Push down on the d-pad shown

    The Xbox One controllers are poorly built

    Only problem I have had with my X1 controller is the D pad.

    Right out of the box, I updated it, and began using Edge and Youtube and noticed that 1 click down on the D pad often moved the navigation down 3 or more spaces.

    It does the same with games as well, which makes using the D pad annoying. So I hooked up the New spare X1 controller I had bought the day I bought the console. (black friday 2015) And it's D pad does it as well.

    Wasn't the D Pad redesigned this generation? I'm sure it was, but if this is what some would call 'a quality redesign.' Then someone in the design team should have gotten fired.

    Thankfully, I don't use the D pad much.
