Wireless remote keeps turning off

check the coils on both the battery pack and controller for any battery corrosion (white powdery paste) if you see any corrosion on the pack, buy a new pack, if you find some on the controller, you can try to scrape it off but it might be time to buy a new controller. if no corrosion is sighted at all you can get into the controller with a special tool, there you can make sure everything is connected in the right place, look on youtube for a video on how it should look.

Issue with xbox one controller : New xbox one controller (day one edition) left analog stick misaligned . Xbox one has not made a year yet from its release , can i return the controller for repair or

It sounds like the same bugs in the system that the old Xbox, and the 360 had to deal with. They use to tell you not to press a button while the game loaded, or the game will think that the button is at (0). I would contact Microsoft and ask them what you should do directly. This issue could be cause for opening a recall on the controllers. Good luck.
