Wired xbox 360 controller keeps disconnecting pc

Unfortunately the darn point keeps disconnecting from my PC if I try to move the controller even slightly. I need to save it still and if I move the cord at all it disconnects. I tried it on my friends COMPUTER and also very same result. I have tried eexceptionally checklist thing to fix it but nopoint functions. I discovered an additional person who had actually the very same worry from a brand new one he purchased and also he did this to fix it- https://imgur.com/pvjkq12

I can't and don't also know exactly how to execute that. I'd quite just buy one more controller. But I desire to make certain I don't waste my money aget.

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

I just 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 an additional 360 controller off eBay just to have actually the very same disconnecting issue.

Sounds choose there's a poor connection at the mid-cable connector or a damaged conductor in the cable itself. Toss it and grab a new one. They're cheap anymethod.

Will do! Thank you for the advice.

What are the chances of me getting another controller with a negative connection or a damaged conductor if I select to buy a supplied 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 certainly be nice to conserve a few bucks.

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

Anyway, you're even more than most likely going to must carry out something similar to what your friend did, or buy a new one.

What happens is, offered over time, wires have the right to manage just so many type of bends and twists prior to breaking comparable to bending a paper clip back and forth till it breaks. The wires inside are quite tiny, however spun in a spiral form fashion. Anyway, from being bundled, bent, and also so on, the wires inside break down, but periodically make call favor normal. This is why it functions if you dont relocate it.

You're right. It's just that I've been shopping offered items on eBay for years and this is literally the first time I've received a negative item.

So you wouldn't recommend trying another supplied 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 extra money to buy new?

Cable breaks are prevalent enough. The X360 pad is not specifically prone to have actually them as far as I recognize. Bought a dud PS4 controller off Ebay myself.
