Wireless controller shutting off

To the point, sitting here today playing Tiger 12, my wireless controller starts to shut off by itself almost after every swing. After fifty times of turning it back on I shut it down before the destructiveness took over. Console stays on its just the controller that shuts off. Any clues to what causes this? Batteries are new and show fully charged.

I think I have a solution for your problem. Please read my instructions. (COURTERSEY TO WIKIHOW.COM)


Remove the battery packs and batteries. Under a strong light inspect the metal contacts at the bottom of the battery holes. If the contacts look shiny and clean skip to step 3).

2.Tape a piece of fine sandpaper over the eraser end of a pencil. Insert this in the holes to twist and gently rub the contacts clean. Smoother sandpaper (i.e., 400 grit) is best, just don't rub as hard with rougher stuff. Blow in each hole to remove any loose particles.


   Pry up on the contact at this gap Flip the pencil around and snap off the lead. Use this end to gently pry up the metal contact (which is lying too flat) at the bottom of each hole so that it is about 30-45 degrees off the bottom. The wood of the pencil will catch the contact more easily than the lead.


Replace the batteries, which will now make solid contact, and your controllers will no longer shut off unexpectedly. Happy gaming!
