Battery fixed itself again?

3 years 5 months ago - 3 years 5 months ago #1 by jbrianj2
So last time i made a topic about my battery getting hot and it permanently stayed on a 90% discharge(10% left) and the battery got really hot when trying to charge it(and always said 100% when plugged in, no matter what)

It made playing on the controller a real pain due to it being permanently heating up when using it even over USB.
I thought the battery permanently died.

Now after keeping it in USB for like2 weeks, somehow when i was playing Dark Souls III with the controller over USB, the lightbar turned from flashing Blue(InputMapper default setting) to light-green(80% charge).

Next day i tried using it the lightbar was permanently off, it does not work anymore(not even with inputmapper closed).

BUT, the controller works perfectly over Bluetooth, the battery doesn't get hot, and it works fine for like 6+ hours without charging it.
What is this magic? What could the lightbar have to do with the battery overheating and not charging properly? It seems completely broken now as it won't turn on no matter what i try to do.

Could this have happened due to a serious bug with Inputmapper, or something bugged out with the internal DirectInput driver? I have a feeling this was never a problem with battery at all.

Anyone have any ideas on how this could've happened. I'm seriously confused and lost for words on how to explain this.

This has nothing to do with driver software. IM nore the drivers have anything to do with the battery. Sounds like you have a hardware issue with the controller itself, I think last we talked you were looking into a replacement under warranty, would still recommend doing this.

I don't think my controller falls under warranty anymore because i have opened it myself to fix an issue with the right trigger by replacing the feedback with my own paperclip solution.

Plus, the sticker with the S/N is gone due to wear(sweat made the glue solution of the sticker loose and eventually fell off)

That's a bummer. I would get a new one then, or even a used one, they are popping up second hand all over now. Then at least you have a backup and are free to tinker with this one. would check that all ribbon cables and connectors are properly seated.
