Right Controller keeps spinning in circles

Not applicable
When I’m playing beat saber or just browsing Facebook my right controller starts to spin in circles uncontrollably.  I moved to different room with different lightings and the same thing happens.  Any suggestions or quick fixes would be very helpful.  Thanks!

Did you change the battery ? If it's charged, remove it, leave it like this for 2-3 minutes, retry.
I had issues with Beat Saber myself too. Maybe related to the game actually.

Thanks for the reply.  

I get the same issue in BoxVR and Oculus Honr Screen, I find the quickest fix is to remove the controller battery and replace it.

It's really annoying when it happens in game, it usually ends a good steak when it happens.

Mine does this on walkabout mini golf and forevrbowling . Very annoying because I can't play.  Also my club goes invisible so I can't hit anything and sometimes teleport circle won't go away and give my club back.

Mine is doin the same thing and can't find any way to fix it which is pissing me off for all the money I paid for this and it's not even a year old 

Hey there! We know how important a working set of controllers is to your experience, so we'd love to lend a hand! 


In order to learn a bit more, could you please answer the following:


  1. When was this first noticed?
  2. Have the controllers ever been mishandled? (Dropped, tossed, spilled liquid, etc.) 
  3. Have you tried cleaning the headset cameras and controller ring sensors?
  4. Have you ensured the play area is not too dark nor too bright?
    • Any reflective surfaces?
  5. What all have you tried already?
  6. Are they spinning in place? 


We look forward to hearing back!
