View Full Version : Has anyone had this controller problem?

It only started today while playing PURE and now it continues to happen without fail every 15 minutes.

What happens is my controller turns itself off every 15 minutes, i cant understand why. The only thing i can think of is it thinks its been inactive for that period of time and turns itself off. But it has been active!

Also, I put new batteries in. Same problem. I also bought a new controller, same problem.

Is there some settings i should be looking at, or is my 360 console faulty? it only just started happening today, before now its been fine.

That's happened to me before. Do you have a play and charge kit? I used that and it seemed to fix itself.

My controller did this for little while after I bought my 360. I don't know why it was doing it but it just stopped on its own eventually.

Another thing you could try is to re-sync the controller with the console and see if that works.

I haven't had any problems with it in Pure before, but in NHL 2k9 everytime I would get a big hit, it would turn off. :confused:

Hmm thanks for the responses guys.
I might re-sync the contoller.

I havent added any new electrical equipment in my room so there cant be any interference.

That used to happen with all 3 of my controllers. Then I bought rechargeable battery packs and it stopped on all of them. I think my problem was that the standard part where you put the batteries in, was touching something all the way and it was a little loose. My rechargables fit nice and tight and my controllers never shut off anymore.

Ill get the recharge kit then.
I dont see why its still happening even though ive bought a brand new controller.

That fixed mine.
