do you have enough battery power ? I had this issue when the controller was missing battery, and I needed to charge it. that could be a weird question, sorry if it sounds like I'm looking at you like a kid, that's a real possibility if it's charges, then I don't know the issue. does it work fine inside nintendont or other compatible homebrew ? reread your message, you said it worked. Then, I don't know why it doesn't work.
