Controller stops working after so often


#1

I have two Garadget controllers since 2016 and im starting to have intermittent issues with one of them. It will work fine for a day or so then it’s just suddenly stops, no laser flashing or any indication that’s the unit is even on. I simply have to unplug the USB power cable and it comes back on after it reboots. Any ideas?


#2

Is there any sensitivity in the USB connector? I.e. if you lightly tap on the connector while the unit is online, does that affect the connectivity? Try a different USB power adapter on the chance that it’s the source of the issue.

Mine was doing the same thing, changed to another 5v supply and problem went away.

I tried that to no avail, ended up having a loose solder connection and emailed Garadget and they are taking care of it for me.
