    Xbox One S Controller Home Button not always working


    Hi guys,

    I just got a Xbox One S Controller, but the home button differs alot from my old classic. Theres no resistence in the home button, and it doesn't always register two clicks. Instead, it only registers one, and minimizes the game instead.

    Has the Home button been changed like that on purpose on Xbox One S controller, or is my new controller defect? Of course I think the last, but I just wanted to make sure.

    :)

    How is your Elite Controller holding up?

    There is the light clicking but the home button issue must be a defect as my home button works flawlessly.

    Xbox One S Controller Home Button not always working

    I have had the same issue with the new design of the controller not registering proper clicks but I think its just a design flaw because it does work just have to make sure you are properly clicking the controller button. I have noticed that the new design
    has the xbox home button flush with the controller face so it's not as easy to click the button to the point that the controller registers the action to the console. It takes some getting use to IMO. The initial design of the controller has the xbox home button
    slightly lifted from the face plate of the controller making it easier to feel and get proper textured feedback when pressed down. Though I'm not sure if the new design has anything different about the depth and pressure needed to press before xbox home button
    registers but that can be part of the issue as well.

    Well my Home button is not lifted, but below the design, so sounds like a flaw.

    xbox one controller will not sync

    You might have to re-sync the controller to the Xbox. Press the little button on the top of your controller until the home button flashes quickly then press the little button on the front of your Xbox one s or x or press the button next to the CD drive
    on the Xbox one

    xbox controller home button issue wont resolve

    OK strange new development/observation

    it appears if i plug the controller into the xbox via usb, than still the home button doesn't work, HOWEVER if i remove the batteries making the controller dependent on the xbox for power then the HOME BUTTON WORKS IMMEDIATELY! while plugged into the xbox
    with a working home button if i put the batteries back into the controller, without hitting anything, the home button stops working again.

    and remember the controller will turn the xbox on via home button even while not connected by USB...

    what in the world is up with this controller?!
