What should I do if my controller won't turn on?

Note:
This hardware is included with the full kit, but not with the headset-only package. You can purchase them separately if you don't have the full kit. To order, go to the Accessories section on www.vive.com/product/. Product availability may vary; please contact customer care with questions.
When a controller won't turn on, try the following methods to troubleshoot the problem:
  • Press and hold the System button for at least 5 seconds and see if the controller turns on.
  • Charge the controller using the other cable and adapter, and plug the adapter to a different power outlet.
  • On the SteamVR dashboard, check if the controllers are detected. If controllers are detected but the LED light is off, it may indicate an issue with the LED.
  • Check if you have a firmware update that failed. To recover from this error, see How do I recover my controller after an interrupted update?.
