Stick Drift quest 2

Hello. My son gave me a quest 2 in January and I’m now experiencing severe stick drift. It keeps moving down and it has hindered my game play. I have tried all of the trouble shooting steps. I think it is still under warranty. Not sure how to navigate this…

Hello @kimm6075! Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! We know how important it is to be able to properly play games on your Quest 2. We'd love to look into this issue with you and see how we can help! For clarity we'll begin by asking you a few questions:

  • What troubleshooting steps have you already tried? 
  • Has your play area changed recently? 
  • Have you tried different play spaces?
  • Are you using third-party accessories or covers with your device?
  • Are you experiencing this issue with both controllers?
  • When does this issue occur? Does it happen only in certain games? Does it happen in the Home environment or in menus?

We look forward to your reply!

Hello,

I have done the following troubleshooting steps based on reading other threads with this issue:

  • Clean the tracking cameras on your headset , and clean the controllers as well 
  • Remove the controller batteries for at least 10 minutes, then replace with a fresh battery
  • Unpair and re-pair the controllers

Play area has not changed recently. I play stationary on my couch.

I did try sitting in a different area, but it still did the same thing.

I am not using 3rd party accessories.

I am only experiencing this with the left controller. (funnily enough, a friend I made through Horizons had this same issue with their left controller to-she is in the UK)

It happens in all games, in any environment. I want my character to stand still and it just keeps backing up until it stops against a wall. I was playing the Plant game on Horizons last night and I couldn't even pick up a pot and put it on a table because my character kept moving backwards, away from the table. 

Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
