Control mapping on one controller has broken


Control mapping on one controller has broken

Hello all, I've been having a problem with one of my vive controllers for the past few days that I havent yet found an answer for. The control mapping on one controller seems to be broken for some reason, it seems to think that the trigger is constantly being pressed even when it isnt being touched at all. Even stranger, it releases the trigger when I press the menu button below the trackpad. I've tried reinstalling steamvr to see if it would reset itself but it doesnt seem to have worked. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Control mapping on one controller has broken

@Xedim, based on your report, it sounds like this may be a physical issue with the controllers internals. Perhaps a loose flex cable or a malfunctioning mainboard... I would suggest initiating an RMA via the live chat (not the email form) for your region.
