So I got one of these controllers back in December (2015) and have had no issues until now. The usb cable it came with was garbage, would always disconnect when moved the wrong way, which if you game like most of us, it gets moved a lot.
I managed to add some tape to the plug to better fit it but still it would disconnect now and then. Today, it disconnected again only to immediately reconnect while I was hitting many buttons, (forza 6 drifting) and then it went into factory reset mode, (which I did not know at the time that's what it was) I though it was just a glitch, so I quickly unplugged it, only to power it back up and have my earphones work but not the mic, RB RT and right stick weren't working either. Went online and found out how to factory reset it but my mic still won't work, I can hear and adjust chat volume, but the mic won't work. It works on my phone and pc just fine. It also registers a headset is connected when its not, making me unable to use my kinect with a controller connected.
Anyone run into this and able to solve it? Or am I gonna have to contact PDP?
