Xbox 360 wired controller keeps disconnecting

Unfortunately the darn point keeps disconnecting from my PC if I try to relocate the controller also slightly. I have to keep it still and if I relocate the cord at all it disconnects. I tried it on my friends COMPUTER and same result. I have actually tried every checklist thing to solve it however nopoint works. I discovered an additional perboy that had the very same issue from a brand also new one he purchased and also he did this to fix it- https://imgur.com/pvjkq12

I can't and also don't even recognize exactly how to execute that. I'd fairly just buy another controller. But I want to make certain I don't waste my money again.

You watching: Xbox 360 wired controller keeps disconnecting

Is this a widespread issue? Or is it an isolated one? Does this suppose it's just poor wiring in the controller?

I simply desire to make sure this is a rare occurrence because if it's not rare then I wouldn't desire to waste my money on buying an additional 360 controller off eBay just to have actually the very same disconnecting worry.

Sounds like there's a bad connection at the mid-cable connector or a broken conductor in the cable itself. Toss it and grab a new one. They're cheap anyway.

Will do! Thank you for the advice.

What are the chances of me gaining one more controller via a bad connection or a damaged conductor if I select to buy a provided one off eBay?

Like this one- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Official-Microsoft-Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-For-Windows-PC-Xbox-360-/282640314321?hash=item41ceacefd1:g:3fAAAOSwr6xZo0Tq

Due to the fact that it would be nice to save a few bucks.

Not to provide you trouble, but this is more than likely the reason why they were offering it on eBay.

Anymethod, you're more than likely going to have to perform somepoint similar to what your frifinish did, or buy a new one.

What happens is, used over time, wires deserve to take care of just so many kind of bends and twists prior to breaking similar to bfinishing a record clip earlier and forth till it breaks. The wires inside are rather tiny, yet spun in a spiral form fashion. Anyway, from being bundled, bent, and also so on, the wires inside break dvery own, yet occasionally make call choose normal. This is why it functions if you dont move it.

You're right. It's simply that I've been shopping provided items on eBay for years and this is literally the initially time I've received a poor item.

So you wouldn't recommfinish trying an additional provided controller?

Possibly this one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Official-Microsoft-Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-For-Windows-PC-Xbox-360-/282640314321?hash=item41ceacefd1:g:3fAAAOSwr6xZo0Tq

Or conserve up the additional money to buy new?

Cable breaks are widespread sufficient. The X360 pad is not particularly at risk to have them as far as I understand. Bought a dud PS4 controller off Ebay myself.
