Oculus controllers won't track

Honored Guest

My oculus controllers have lost all tracking, I've tried unpairing and repairing them, putting in new batteries, I've even factory reset my oculus because it was acting up too. I honestly want to know if it can be fixed or if I have to buy new controllers.

I have no idea if this also has anything to do with it but my oculus recently wouldn't turn on or show the light so I had to keep it charged all day, along with the menu moving with me wherever I look but that's fixed since I factory reset it

Hey there, @StrawberryAce! We know how important it is to have functioning controllers, so we want to do our best to get them back up and running. It seems that you've done some troubleshooting already, which is very helpful! We have some other things for you to check, as well:

  • Ensure your area is well lit, with enough light to see clearly but no direct sunlight.
  • Ensure your area is free of small lights, such as Christmas lights or LED strips.
  • Ensure your area is free of reflective surfaces such as mirrors, glass, or polished marble.
  • Ensure the tracking cameras are clean.
  • Ensure your environment is free of any obstructions between the tracking cameras and the controllers.
  • Remove unsupported third-party accessories that may affect tracking or controller detection.
    • For example, controller and headset covers, controller attachments, etc.

If these steps don't help, we will want to take a closer look at your device. To do this, we'll need to gather some sensitive information, so we ask that you reach out to us via PM.
