Iíve used a play and charge cord for a while now and have never had an issue. I played just last night and didnít have a problem. I went to play today and for whatever reason the controller light will not come on and the XIM4 app shows the controller but it will not work. Any ideas?! I stream on Twitch so I need my XIM4 setup!!!

Are you sure you're not using a standard USB cable? Play and charge USB cables do not work with a XIM, they don't have the required data lines.

Cables can easily break when a controller falls from a table. Try a different data USB cable.

I am using a play and charge cable and have used one from the get go. I did manage to fix it in the most odd way. So I removed the rechargeable battery from the controller and removed the USB side of the plug from the XIM4 then I plugged the USB side into my PC then the controller was working. Then I removed the USB side from my PC and plugged it back into the XIM4 and it just started working again!  Weird I know but Iíll take it any way I can get it!
