    Hi everyone,

    I got a little problem with my wavebird controller. It stopped working without any reasons while I was playing. I thought it'd be the batteries, so I changed them for new ones, and it still wouldn't work. nothing happens if I try to turn it on, as if no batteries were inside the controller.


    Anyone ever had the same problem? Are there some links to help me fix it? That would prevent me from getting a fourth controller for Brawl...

    Thanks

    Make sure that the dial on both the wavebird and the controller plug is set to the same channel. I sometimes accidentally flick mine to a different channel and wonder why it's stopped working. This may be the cause of your problem.

    yeah, that was the first thing I checked after changing the batteries, but IIRC, when I turned the controller on, even if the wireless channel wasn't the same, the small LED would be on... and now nothing happens


    thanks for your suggestion though [​IMG]

    Sounds like it's broken then. I'd be returning it to nintendo if it's still under warranty (although I somewhat doubt it...)

    bought it at a garage sell for 5€, no box, no warranty, and it worked for 1 year after that...


    I'll try to open it some day and see if I can revive it

    Good price, and you got a years worth out of it. Does sound broke though, maybe time to bury it

    Probably something as simple as one of the battery contacts losing connection. Crack it open if you can't see something obvious under the battery cover.
