Sony Navy Controller (minor issue)
« on: 05:15 PM - 08/05/12 »
Any other Nav controller users have issues with the controller to just stop working during game play?

I have 2 working controllers which I always keep charged.  I used it for about a minute then it stopped responding.  I can see on the XIM screen that (the joystick icon) it's still registered but I get no movement and I'll have to unplug and plug it in to get it working again.  Every so often the controller icon will totally disappear from the XIM screen.

Funny thing is it always happens when I need it the most.  LOL

One Nav controller is about 1 year old and the other is a month old.

Any suggestions?

Controllers are plugged into the XIM as per instructions on this site.

Hi, you mentioned an icon. Are you actually on a XIM3?

Yes.  XIM3.  You know the icons that appear at the top of the main screen as you plug your mouse, controller and joystick/keyboard in.

Ok, just wanted to check to be sure as it was orginially posted under XIM Edge.

Have you tried a different USB cord with your Nav?

My bad about posting in the wrong forum.  Don't drink and post.

I've tried a regular USB cable but perhaps I will swap it for a gold USB cable to see if that works. 

I am tempted to pull one Nav controller apart to see if it can be hard wired. 

Thanks for the response.

I too use the Sony Nav and have experienced the same issues. I found the mini usb cable to be the cause. I'm currently on my 4th one! However this time I purchased an official Sony cable and have had no issues as of yet. Might be worth giving that a go if you have no joy with anything else.  ;)

Thanks I will get either a better USB or the Sony USB cable and try it.

Thanks for the assistance on this.  I picked up a Sony USB cable and a new one with gold leads.  Works like a charm now.
