Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
My 360 controller turns off at random sometimes, and I have no clue what to do. I replaced the batteries 5 times, and it specifically turns off whenever I press the right trigger whenever play CoD:WaW. Any other times it turns off at random. Anyone know what to do?
The battery indicator found when pressing your xbox logo button is
temperamental. It might say 2 bars, or 3 or even full battery but this
is not a good indicator of a full battery.
The problem IS low batteries(or more specifically - bad batteries) - when the batteries become low the vibration function can cause the controller to disconnect. This is happens because the vibration function uses extra battery power.
So basically... Every time your controller vibrates, it disconnects. This occurs when firing a weapon in most games, grenades in COD, landing heavy tricks in Skate 2, the list goes on, you'll find many complaints from people stating their controller disconnects specifically with these events.
The simple solution, turn off the vibration function when this occurs. It'll never happen to you again ^_^
Thumbs this up when it proves correct for you. I'd recommend a recharge while you play pack. ALWAYS by the official products too. They're much more reliable and aren't prone to this kind of behaviour.
