I saw a few people had similar problems where the touchpad (mostly on the left controller for some reason) would detect a false input, rendering it completely useless and in many cases extremely irritating (constantly moving in games) but nobody seems to have found a consistent fix. Restarting used to fix the problem temporarily, but now mine has completely died.
No touch input at all, and therefore I can't even click the touchpad as that feature uses the touchpad for locating the button press.
I left it overnight and when I came back in the morning it had fixed itself, but I went out for half a day and when I came back the purple dot was back again, which is better than no touch input but still makes many games completely unplayable. Resetting the controller with the pair + windows button is what causes it to completely die by the way, so at least its consistent, which hopefully means its software or firmware and not hardware.
Anyone know a fix, workaround or a way to buy individual left motion controllers?
