My original MS xbox controller S doesnt work as good. When playin a game, I shift and the screen says please reconnect controller and it is securely inserted into the controller port. I tried all ports and its the controller and i also tried it with my New controller and that doesnt have the problem so i know that the other controller is broken. Please help me out. .. How do I fix this? Has anyone ever had this problem?

Edit: The "Please reconnect controller" is consistant.. I gotta shake the controller like every 30 sec after the screen says, "Please reconnect controller".

Is there any visible damage to the cord? You could have a broken wire in there that only makes contact when the cord is bent a certain way? It's happened to me with headphones and such before.

Well what I would do is take my multimeter and check for continuity in the wires in the cord. Might not be the best idea, but I would open up the controller and put one lead on the connection of each wire to the controller and put the other lead on the connector to the xbox. If you can't get to that, I'd suggest peeling a little bit of the cord coating away near the connector and testing there instead of testing the actual connector b/c that way you can always just put some electrical tape around the cord to patch it. That's where I'd start.

Replace the cord. You might get it to work again resoldering the connections on the controller. but its doubtful.

I had the same problem, its probably at the part where the cord exits the controller shell. Just cut the section out, mine was bad I could feel the splice in the cords. and resolder the wires. Dont worry about the yellow one though.

Yeah, my neighbors are really rough with their controllers, always pulling on them and stuff, and almost all their controller got like this.. So I cut open the wire where it comes out of the controller and just resoldered, and they work good as new.

Same thing used to happen all the time with my controller, it used to be really annoying as I had to keep getting up off the chair at least once a minute to move the cable, I swapped the cable with one from a damaged s-controller that a friend gave me & it works fine now.
