Quest 2 Left Controller X and Y not working

Honored Guest

have left my left controller unused for a while, My father bought a quest 2 without the controllers for my brother which he planned to get controllers for him later. I unpaired both my controllers to connect to my brothers quest 2 and set it up for him, I paired the right controller successfully but when I tried to connect the left controller the buttons wont make the ring light up and it wont pair to both my quest and my brothers. It also once lit up a bunch of times and i think it meant sos in morse code but i didnt really confirm it. any help please?

Hey there, @X_Aspect! We're pumped up to hear about your brother getting a Quest 2 and finally being able to join in all the fun with you! Although, to be able to get started, you're going to need those controllers up and running, so let's get to the bottom of this! It already sounds like you've already covered all the troubleshooting steps to explore, so we'd like to suggest doing a factory reset on either your headset or your brother's headset, then try pairing the controllers again and see if that'll resolve the issue. Let us know how it works; if the issue still persists, we'll be happy to explore more options for you!
