The controller does not turn on when fully charged.

If your controller was disconnected during a firmware upgrade, it will not function until the firmware is recovered. To do this, the controller will need to be updated from scratch. Note: In this condition, the wireless on the controller is nonfunctional. This has to be done over USB.

Tip: If you have problems getting the controller to turn on, removing the batteries for 15 minutes before recovery is known to help in situations where this occurs.

Plug your controller into an Xbox One console or a PC. At this point, your method will vary. It should also be noted one functional controller is required to use a console for controller firmware recovery.

To recover the controller on a console, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: On the console, navigate to Devices and Accessories.
  • Step 2: Find the Elite controller. It should say Update Required if it is the correct controller.
  • Step 3: Re-run the firmware update.

PC recovery requires Windows 10 as a prerequisite. Newer versions of Windows 10 no longer require a Microsoft Account to download the required programs, but older versions usually do. Users on older versions of Windows 10 will need to convert an account or make a new account just for this task. After you have confirmed you have a Windows 10 system, you can begin the process of recovering the controller.

  • Step 1: Install the Xbox Accessories application.
  • Step 2: Once Xbox Accessories is installed, plug the controller in. It should turn on and say Update Required if your controller is visible to the PC and Xbox Accessories.
  • Step 3: Click Update Required and allow the firmware to reinstall.

If you followed these steps correctly, your controller should be functional again.

When the controller is plugged into the computer using a USB cable, the controller does not function.

In Windows 7 and 8.x, the Xbox One controller is known to fail automatic driver installation. This issue is well documented and is caused by the lack of drivers bundled with these operating systems. It is also not helped by Windows Update driver detection problems. The standard controller offers two driver options:

Note: Correcting the issue by manually installing the driver requires administrator permissions. Users with Standard and Limited accounts will need the admin password to fix the issue this way.

Manual fix

  • Step 1: Plug in the controller. If the automatic driver installation fails, go on to the next step.
  • Step 2: Open Device Manager and find the controller. This is typically located under Xbox Peripherals (Legacy) in Windows 7 and 8.x systems.
  • Step 3: Select the Driver tab.
  • Step 4: Click Update Driver.
  • Step 5: Try using Search automatically for updated driver software. If this doesn't work, go to Step 6.
  • Step 6: If this did not work, download the driver from Microsoft. Put this in a place you can easily find it on your computer. Once it is downloaded, select Browse my computer for driver software and manually select the driver.

If you did this correctly, your controller should now work.

Automatic install

The easiest way for inexperienced users to fix this problem is to use the .exe package that copies the required files to your PC that was released in 2012. This driver is older, but it is wrapped into a package that is easy to understand. This driver is no longer hosted by Microsoft, as they now load the driver through Windows Update.

Note: This driver is older. Some games may not work correctly until it is updated in Device Manager.

The driver can be found here: 64-bit .exe (TechSpot)

I want to navigate my Xbox One, but my controller refuses to connect or will not stay connected for long.

Your batteries may be low. If the batteries are low, the controller's wireless signal strength may be weak and therefore will not connect to the console. You are going to want to replace your batteries or charge the controller.

Parts: AA Batteries for Xbox One, Xbox One Controller Charging Cable

Tools required: None

A conflicting signal may be responsible for connectivity issues. Consider turning off nearby wireless devices and reconnecting the controller.

Make sure you do not have more than eight controllers connected. That is the limit for the Xbox One console.

If you set down your controller for longer than fifteen minutes and then come back to an unresponsive controller, you may need to turn the controller back on.

Your Xbox One Controller signal has a range of 30 feet (9.1 meters). Make sure you are within this range.

If you sync your controller to another device, you will need to re-sync it back to your console. To do this, turn on the Xbox One and hold down the sync button on your controller. Simultaneously, hold down the sync button on your console until the light on your controller begins to flash at a rapid pace. Once this happens, release both sync buttons. Your controller should now be connected after about five to ten seconds.

Some people have reported that the controller will not connect with the headset mic plugged in. Unplug the mic, and reconnect. Sync if necessary. Plug the mic back in after establishing a connection.

If you are using a Model 1697 controller, your internal headphone jack may be damaged. Try unplugging the mic and trying again. If you continue to have problems, try a different pair of headphones that are known to work.

Parts: Xbox One headphone jack, Xbox One headset adapter

Tools required: T6 Torx, TR8 Torx, Spudger, tweezers (recommended)

Tools are not required if you use the Xbox One headset adapter to fix the issue.

No matter how many times I try to connect or sync my controller, it will not turn on.

When I am playing games, my controller refuses to vibrate.

Make sure your vibrations setting is enabled. This can be done in the settings of the game you are playing.

If your batteries are low, the controller may not vibrate in an effort to save battery life. Replace the batteries or charge your controller.

Parts: AA Batteries for Xbox One, Xbox One Controller Charging Cable

Tools required: None

Try using another controller on the game that you are playing. If the controller is still not vibrating, the game most likely does not support this option.

If you have tried everything above and your controller still refuses to vibrate, there may be something wrong with the vibration motor. Get ready to grab a screw driver, you're going to need it for the Trigger Rumble Motor Replacement Guide. This guide requires soldering.
