Quest 3 left controller issues

Honored Guest

My left controller stopped working last night. I have read online to change batteries which I have done. I unpaired it but it won't let me pair it again.

Hey hey @Di1974, and welcome to the forums! I know not having a working controller really limits what you can do in VR, and I want to help you get it working again.

You said you changed the batteries, but did you replace them immediately after removing the old ones? If so, I'd recommend removing the battery from your controller for at least 10 minutes. That will allow any remaining power in your controller to fully drain before putting in new batteries and attempting to pair again.

Please let me know if that worked, or if you controller still isn't working correctly.

Make sure you smash that Kudos button!
