Quest 2 Right Controller Trigger Button not working as intended

Level 2

Hi , so the problem is when I press all the way down  trigger button on the right controller it doesn't register it in the vr ( it shows that I pressed it about half way in the vr home menu ) . This creates problems for various games as it doesn't allow me to shoot in some games cause i didn't press it  all the way down ( even though I did ). Left controller is working fine. This annoys me because I have to do everything with my left hand now (  Have to click menus in games with left hand , have to shoot with my left hand etc..)


Everything else with right controller is working good ( tracking , all the other buttons )

I have tried replacing the batteries but to no avail.

Hey @Belcross! We know controller issues are very discouraging so we'd be glad to lend a hand.


Wonderful to know you're already a couple of steps ahead on the controller issues. 


As for now, please feel free to test out the below:


  1. Remove the battery for roughly 10-15 minutes to reset the controller before replacing with a new or known working one.
  2. Unpair and repair the controllers using the Meta Quest app. 


We hope to hear back soon! 🙂

@Belcross Hey there! I’ve been dealing with the exact same issue you’re dealing with and was wondering if you ever did find a solution to this problem?

Unfortunately I didn't 😕
