The Xbox One Wireless Controller 1697 was released in 2015 and replaced the 1537 controller and fixes some of the problems found on Model 1537 controllers. The Model 1697 controller includes an integrated 3.5mm headset jack, which allows compatibility with most 3rd party headsets without an adapter. This controller has been discontinued and replaced by the Model 1708 controller.

Welllllllllll I think the solution here is to not smash it on the floor. But hey, we’ve all done it at some point. To make sure that it’s actually broken, try holding the Xbox button down and see if you feel the haptic buzz that you normally get when you power it on. Assuming it doesn’t work entirely and there isn’t obvious exterior damage, (cracks, broken clips, etc) the first thing you should check is the batteries. The force of it being hit on the ground probably knocked them loose. If you can ensure that they’re in well and are good (you should try new batteries just in case) then I’d check the contacts next. There are silver contacts where the ends of the batteries meet the controlled, they’re labeled positive and negative. Check and see if they’re bent, dislodged, or otherwise not making contact with the battery for any reason. I hope that helps!

If this doesn’t work, drop a reply with the nature of the damage and a picture (if there’s exterior damage), along with what corner of the controller hit the ground.

I personally find that not smashing my controller on the ground works for me.
