Issue with Factory Reset on Oculus Quest 3: Controllers Without Tab

Hi, I reset my Oculus Quest 3 headset to factory settings, but now it's asking me to pull the tab from the controllers, which don't have one since they're not new. How can I proceed?

Place the controllers into pairing mode by holding down the recessed buttton and B or Y on each one for a few seconds.

Hey there, @FFINDERmrx! We'd be glad to lend a hand with getting you past that step where you're being asked to remove the tabs from your controllers! Please tell us if the suggestions from fellow user @user_901925786032222 were able to help you move forward in the pairing process. If you are still needing some help, please try removing the batteries in your controllers for 1 to 2 minutes, then putting them back in and trying to complete the pairing process. If you have any issues, please let us know!
