  1. Xbox series X controller not connecting properly to PC (using USB-C cable)


    So I understand this is a common problem with other people as I have googled multiple fixes for this but all are still to no avail. The problem being is when I try and connect try and connect to my xbox controller using a USB-C cable plugged into my PC it will either connect and then the slightest of movement will make it disconnect or it will not connect at all. (Vibrates no matter what outcome if that's any use). This happened a while back and I followed all troubleshooting steps etc and used all different USB-C cables and then magically it just started working again. That lasted for around a month and now the issue is back again. Any help would be appreciated, thanks Xbox series X controller not connecting properly to PC (using USB-C cable) :)

    Electric Volt controller connect to Win10 via cable

    Hi,

    Almost any USB C to USB A cable (your standard USB Phone/tablet charge cable) will work fine for PC or console gaming with a Series X type controller. I use a 2M USB C cable to connect my Series X controller to my PC.

    I don't have any Bluetooth issues, but using a cable does avoid changing the batteries so much. 😁

    Play & Charge Kit for Xbox One

    the plug n play charge battery is the same for both, it is the charging cable that is different. the series x version comes with a USB C cable and the standard xbox one comes with a micro usb cable.

    i couldnt get the usb c version for my series controller so i just bought the xbox one version and use a third party usb c cable for charging.

    Elite Controller Series 2 will no longer charge or connect to Xbox or PC?

    Hi,

    You can use a controller without a battery if it's connected with a USB cable. If you remove the battery and connect to either a console or PC with the cable, does the controller turn on? interact with the device you connect it to?

    If your controller doesn't work, try another cable. The cable for the Series 2 needs to be a USB to USB C cable. The cable needs to be able to send data as well as charge - most cables designed for phones and tablets that use USB C are capable of sending
    data.

    If your controller still doesn't power up after changing the cable, then its likely your controller has a fault.

    Elite Controller Series 2 will no longer charge or connect to Xbox or PC?

    My controller is the elite series 2 controller, so I cannot remove the battery.

    As I mentioned in my original post, the controller will not connect to my PC or Xbox with the correct USB C cable, and it will not charge or connect with the multiple cables I tried to use.

    Is there a way I can send this in to get repaired?

    Xbox Series X type-c port?

    On the video, Xbox Series X has USB type A only.

    The new controller, I think is type-A (Xbox Series X) to type-c (controller). (Elite2 is a to c usb)
