Answered: Joystick Controller Problem

I have the new VEX net joystick controller, and when I am using it, it constantly disconnects and all the lights turn red. Does anyone know what this means or how to fix it???


**First, check to make sure you a using fully charged batteries. Move the CORTEX and the Joystick so that they are only about 2 feet apart – do you still have the problem.

Try moving to a different location – take the units home and test again.

Try using 2 different VEXnet Keys if you can, preferable know good ones – ones that work in other unit Links with no problems.

Also use our Tool to make sure the Joystick and CORTEX are up to date by using the VEXnet Firmware Upgrade Utility which can be found on the Wiki Downloads page, just follow the instructions that come in the Tool’s zip file.**
