Xbox 360 wired controller keeps disconnecting from pc

Unfortunately the darn thing keeps disconnecting from my COMPUTER if I attempt to move the controller even slightly. I need to save it still and also if I relocate the cord at all it disconnects. I tried it on my friends PC and also exact same result. I have tried eextremely checklist point to settle it yet nothing functions. I discovered another perboy who had the exact same problem from a brand brand-new one he purchased and he did this to deal with it- https://imgur.com/pvjkq12

I can't and don't also understand just how to perform that. I'd fairly just buy one more controller. But I want to make sure I don't waste my money aget.

You watching: Xbox 360 wired controller keeps disconnecting from pc

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

I simply want to make certain this is a rare occurrence because if it's not rare then I wouldn't want to waste my money on buying one more 360 controller off eBay only to have actually the same disconnecting concern.

Sounds favor there's a negative link at the mid-cable connector or a broken conductor in the cable itself. Toss it and also grab a new one. They're cheap anymethod.

Will do! Thank you for the advice.

What are the opportunities of me acquiring an additional controller via a negative connection or a broken conductor if I choose to buy a offered 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

Since it would be nice to save a couple of bucks.

Not to give you trouble, but this is more than likely the factor why they were selling it on eBay.

Anyway, you're even more than likely going to should perform somepoint similar to what your friend did, or buy a brand-new one.

What happens is, supplied over time, wires deserve to take care of only so many kind of bends and twists prior to breaking comparable to bending a record clip back and also forth till it breaks. The wires inside are fairly tiny, yet spun in a spiral type fashion. Anyway, from being bundled, bent, and also so on, the wires inside break dvery own, yet periodically make call favor normal. This is why it functions if you dont move it.

You're best. It's simply that I've been shopping offered items on eBay for years and also this is literally the initially time I've received a negative item.

So you wouldn't recommfinish trying one more offered 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 save up the extra money to buy new?

Cable breaks are common sufficient. The X360 pad is not especially prone to have them as much as I know. Bought a dud PS4 controller off Ebay myself.
