Left controller trigger button not working

Hi Support Team!

My left controller’s trigger button isn’t working. Sometimes it says it’s pressed when it isn’t or sometimes I press it and it doesn’t register. Any way I can get some help to fix it, please?

Thank you!!

Hey there, pandagod22. We definitely have to get you back in the game. Controller issues are never cool, so allow us to get you back on track and look further into this for you.

If you're having trouble connecting or pairing your Touch controllers to your Meta Quest 2 or Meta Quest headset, try the following:

Press any button to wake the controller while using your headset.
While you have your headset on, press and hold to reorient the controller.
Remove and reseat the battery in each Touch controller.
Unpair and re-pair your controllers:
To unpair your controllers:

Open the Meta Quest app on your phone.
Tap Devices in the bottom menu.
Tap the headset you currently have paired.
Tap Controllers, then tap the controller that you want to unpair.
Tap Unpair Controller.

To re-pair your controllers:

Open the Meta Quest app on your phone.
Tap Devices in the bottom menu.
Tap the headset you currently have paired.
Tap Controllers, then tap the controller that you want to unpair.
Press and hold and buttons on your right controller or and on your left controller until the controller LED blinks and then lights up to finalize the pairing.

Here is a link that will explain how to unpair and re-pair the controllers. We can start with these troubleshooting steps to see if they help.
