    Xbox series X controller menu button not working and double input.


    I bought a white series x controller in November for my Xbox One X and I haven't had any issues. However, seemingly out of nowhere while playing Wolfenstein 2 I noticed that I could not pause the game with the menu button. After pressing the home button I noticed when I pressed the d-pad once it would perform two inputs at once as if I had rapidly pressed the same direction twice. All of the buttons and bumpers seem to be doing this including the thumbsticks. (The right stick is not used for navigation so I can't really tell.)

    I have followed the troubleshooting guide, updated the controller while plugged into the console, and restarted the console.

    I have not damaged my controller in any way and I've not experienced something like this before. I'm hoping I can find a solution without having to pay for a replacement.

    :)

    XBox One controller eating/masking inputs?

    I'm pretty sure at this point the issues with the A button is a hardware failure, as the controller frequently just doesn't register an input when the button is pressed. This is really visible when you have to press two buttons at once, such as A and X,
    to perform two independent actions simultaneously, and only the X input does anything. It might take several presses before the A button does anything.

    Regardless of what the issue really was, I can't test anything further until I get a new controller, as this one is definitely broken. The hinge on the right trigger broke (doesn't prevent use, just makes it feel gritty), I'm having issues with the A button
    as described above, the d-pad is registering double/triple inputs (makes menu item selection quite the chore, especially when the software developers make the menu reset to the start when accidentally navigating to a different menu), and the USB port won't
    hold the cable anymore.

    Xbox one controller

    The Xbox Series X controllers will work on Xbox One consoles, and the Xbox One controllers (including the Elite/Elite V2) will work on Xbox Series X too.

    This is a link to an external site which
    confirms the backwards and forwards compatibility for controllers.

    Xbox One freezes when joining party chat

    Either double-tap the Xbox Home button (glowing white button with an X) and it will close, or press B repeatedly or press right on the d-pad (the cross on the controller) until the menu closes.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Snapcenter - death of "Xbox record that?"

    The basis for his idea is that on the Xbox 360 there was no double tap to go anywhere, you pushed the button for the guide menu (Snap Menu now) and when the menu was up you pushed Y to go to the dashboard.

    Currently on the Xbox One you can do this with the X button to record a clip, but there is nothing for the Y button.

    Simple take away the double tap feature (which only works 75% of the time for me) and make it so if you want to go home you push Xbox Button then push Y.
