Anybody have the issue and can you fix it?

I got a Day One launch edition and Titanfall controller that are un-usable. Looking to get them rebuilt or fixed if possible.

Spit some hot fire my way.

I saw eBay kits but afraid of taking them apart.

Just bought a new one and have two in the scrapyard now.

They won't repair or replace them anymore to my knowledge. During the warranty period they would send you a replacement one for free most of the time. Now that the warranty has passed, I don't know that there is much you can do.

As much as I hate to say it, best advice is to put it on the shelf as a collectable and get a standard edition to replace it.

There are a handful of services that will repair them (basically change all the internals and reuse the case), but in most cases this costs as much as getting a brand new controller and would be without warranty in the event of failure.

my right bumper broke and I got right before lockdown, they didn't extend the warranty period even though their contact us was closed down due to that, I had to reach someone via finance on the windows office side and then they told me that my serial number for the controller couldn't be verified even though I bought the controller from their website. :/

First, Titanfall :love:
Second, you play on console? Why did I think you were a PC bro?
Third, pretty sure my buddy has taken his apart and fixed things. I can ask what instructions, videos, etc he used to do it successfully.

Might be a long shot but how far is the console from you when you're playing. I had distance and signal interference inhibit controller performance.

Bout 8 feet or so, the new controller seems to work fine.
I would still say it is the controller itself. The Day One edition and Titanfall controllers were known to have faults or stop working altogether. That is why they refused to even try to fix them.

They both faced a lot of issues at launch and continued to long after. Most of the controller issues were solved a few months after the consoles were released, but by that time they were no longer issuing the limited edition controllers.

If you want to do it yourself I would suggest an ifixit kit. I don't recall specifically, but I assume the controller uses some kind of proprietary screws to keep them closed. You probably need to get a kit to open it without damaging it. Assuming you do it, you should be able to just swap the insides with any other Xbox one controller as the cover is the only custom part.

Thanks,

I got the tools for it already I can give it a try and see if it works.

Can't mess it up anymore.
