[RESOLVED] XIM4 randomly just shutting off.
« on: 04:59 PM - 11/07/17 »
I don't know what could be causing this since other than a new wireless mouse I got but it does not use up much energy at all since its very low budget.

Are you peripherals shutting off too? Or, you are only seeing your XIM4's lights go out?
Get the most out of your XIM APEX, read the XIM APEX Support FAQ.

My mouse and keyboard still stay on, my XIM4's lights do go out though.

What keyboard are you using and is your mouse wired to XIM4? If so try using your mouse wirelessly instead.

If playing on PS4 please disconnect XIM4 and connect the controller directly with the console for 1 hour to charge. XIM4 should be disconnected.

Alright, thanks for the suggestion. I am using a RK100 Rii keyboard and a M510 wireless mouse. Also, if you don't mind me asking but what do you mean use my mouse wirelessly? I am using it wirelessly unless I'm doing something wrong.

Some mice can connect using a wire to charge. I suggested disconnecting the wire.

This is likely a power issue. If on PS4 continue to charge your controller. Otherwise try disabling your keyboard LEDs or use a low power keyboard. You may also be able to use a USB 2.0 powered hub between xim4 and the keyboard to provide additional power.

are you saying the xim should be plugged into the 3.0 port?

No. In the event that the previous suggestions don't help then a USB 2.0 powered hub may help when attached between the console and xim4.

I charged the controller for an hour and it seems to be working again. Its always the controller that needs to be charged to solve these type of issues. Thanks for helping me out!

your xim can tickle charge the controller, so once its fully charged it at least shouldnt uncharge anymore
(unless you take larger gaming breaks so the battery drains or you use the controller in wireless mode very often)
