What should I do if my controller won't turn on?
Note:When a controller won't turn on, try the following methods to troubleshoot the problem:
The hardware may be purchased separately from the Accessories tab on www.vive.com/product/.
- Press and hold the System button for at least 5 seconds and see if the controller turns on.
- Charge the controller using the other cable and adapter, and plug the adapter to a different power outlet.
- On the SteamVR dashboard, check if the controllers are detected. If controllers are detected but the LED light is off, it may indicate an issue with the LED.
- Check if you have a firmware update that failed. To recover from this error, see How do I recover my controller after an interrupted update?.
