Hello,

After turning the controller off using the menu and select button, how can it be turned back ON ?

I had to remove and re-insert the battery for it to wake up. Could not find any explanation of this in the User Guide.

Thanks,
Svein-Helge

Press the Home button (below and to the left of the wheel) and hold it for 1-2 seconds. You can also turn the Controller off by pressing and holding the Home button.

Press the Home button.

I find you have to wait a few seconds after power off to be able to turn it back on.

The buttons light up when it's booting up.

I've found pressing the home button doesn't always work. I often have to try many times to get it to turn back on. Does anyone have the exact sequence that turns it on. Waiting a few seconds after shutting off does seem to help. You're not supposed to need to hold it down according to the manual.
Is there some idiosyncrasy I don't know about. If someone could describe which foot to stand on so it turns on each time I'd appreciate it.

Thanks, Joe

Why are you turning it off?

(Of course it should work, but I'm still curious.

I have to. I have another thread and support call related to my problems with it not connecting after sleep mode. I have to turn it off and back on then it connects perfectly.
