Xbox One Wireless Controller (Lunar White) working only with USB cable

My Xbox controller will not work without a direct USB connection to a console. Tried new batts, software updates, and all I got it to do was make it turn on for .5 seconds. Any solutions? Also turns on console.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If the controller turns on and stays on when connected to the console as well as works as normal, I have found that the Bluetooth chip on the controller can cause it to power off when it goes bad or gets shorted.

Hello, same problem but i fixed it

The console's Pair button on the controler may be broken, to fix it you might need to replace the button
