Experiencing Tracking Issues

Honored Guest

For some reason ive tried multiple troubleshooting steps and my controllers still don't seem to work. The right controller just keeps floating/glitching away and it wont stop. Ive tried replacing batteries, removing batteries and waiting 30 seconds to a minute, resting the headset(factory reset), updating the controllers. Unpairing and pairing the controllers, and the aluminum foil method. Why wont anything work? I honestly would like a free controller because nothing works.

Hey there, @jamarionbaker.2022! Having your controllers not tracking properly would make gaming difficult, and we want to make sure we look into everything here to make sure we get you back to gaming quickly. Can you answer the following questions so we can narrow down the troubleshooting we would need for your case:


  • Has your play area changed recently?
  • Have you tried different play spaces?
  • Has the tracking worked properly before?
  • Are you using third-party accessories or covers with your device?
  • Are you experiencing this issue with just the right controller, or are you seeing this with both controllers?
  • When does this issue occur? Does it happen only in certain games? Does it happen in the Home environment or in menus?

We hope to hear back from you quickly, so we can help you get things working normally and back to gaming!
