    Xbox One Elite Controller blinks midgame and when you start it


    Hello, my Xbox One Elite Controller started a few weeks ago to blink fast in the middle of the game. This happened irregular, sometimes a few minutes after the console starts, sometimes after a few hours, often in a row, once a day, sometimes only every
    few days.

    Now this problem has not been around for a week, but now everytime I start a console with this controller, the console starts regular but then the controller blinks for 25 seconds fast. After that, he is connected again und function normally. This happens
    every time for a week.

    I did a hard reset, I tested the controller on two different consoles (I have a Xbox One X and a Xbox One S) and I tested another controller that works normally. I also tested different batteries.

    I don't know, if the first problem could reappear, but is there any solution for the second problem?

    I bought the controller two and a half years ago.

    Thank you for any help with these two issues.

    :)

    Xbox One Elite Controller blinks midgame and when you start it

    Hi Deso,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help.

    It's normal for the controller's LED to blink when starting up the console and turning it on the first time but not for 25 seconds. Also if the LED blinks while midgame, that means the controller lost connection to the Xbox and attempts to re-connect automatically.
    From the testing you have presented, it seems like the issue is within the controller's hardware. In order to confirm that,
    you will need to try out a soft factory reset.

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select System > Settings > System > Console info.
    3. Select Reset console.

    Make sure to select "Keep my games & apps" and have the correct account login information plus your Wi-Fi password ready if you connect wireless because you will need to re-add the account's that were on the Xbox and re-connect to your
    network during the reset.

    Let us know if the factory reset improves the connection.
