Quest controller not working


The left controller works perfectly but as soon as I pair the right one. None of the buttons can be pressed

The tracking is still functional and the left controller alone is working fine

but as soon as the right controller pairs. It corrupts all the buttons and now none of the buttons of any controller can be pressed (Still tracking). Unpairing right makes left work again.

There are sometimes if you keep pressing the trigger button and it registers it and after 5 seconds registers that you released the trigger but basically right controller completely stops all the buttons.
