My right controller won't start up, not a battery or corrosion issue

Honored Guest

I turned on my Quest 2 tonight and the right controller did not. I assumed battery issues so I changed the battery but no luck. Tested the battery in the left and all is good, no light turned on on the right one at all. looked in the Forums and checked for corrosion, nothing, unpaired the controller and tried to repair, nothing. It would seem that it just isn't turning on at all. also the spring connection portion of it is really tight, kinda hard to take out the battery because of it actually.


Any ideas or is it a bad controller now?
