Oculus Go controller freeze (troubleshooting)

Yesterday, the controller freeze, so I try to reboot the viewer, I push the on/off button few seconds & just show a prompt to cancel-restart-turnoff, but I couldn't move the pointer, it said that you can use the volume button to select but they don't respond..
after a while I make a looong press of the on/off button during -i don't remember- maybe 20 seconds o more & the oculus go turn off completely , when it started again the controller works OK.
I post this in case some else has this issue, because there is not a troubleshooting about it.

    Same problem here several times in the past few days after a couple of weeks with no problem.

    Take the battery out of the controller and then put it back in. It will fix it.

    Did you try forgetting the controller in the phone app and relinking it? If it never comes back, something in the controller must be broken

    I've never had battery cycling the controller do anything. Only a full power off/on seems to fix it when the controller becomes partially inoperable (buttons work but gyros don't, etc.). So far it's only been on wake that it gets messed up. It has never failed while in use.

    I've had it freeze and be fixed by pulling the battery and putting it back again. And I've had it freeze where I had to unpair it in the phone app and relink it.

    This happened to me yesterday and I did what the OP did. But thanks for the battery tip, much simpler!

    Dittos,. Also, supposedly you can restart the controller by holding down both the Back and Oculus buttons for several seconds.

    Did you try disconnecting and reconnecting using the phone app?

    Also be sure to do a full power down restart of the Go. Early on I had one occasion where I had to do the whole delete controller in the mobile app thing but so far it has been golden.

    Try to unpair and pair the controller using the phone app. You can also hold down both the back and Oculus buttons for around 5 - 10 seconds to force a pair.

    Found solution: long press the power button until it shut down. Then restart the Go and it will work again.

    Just had this happen for the first time (only had my Go about a week).  Rebooting (long press of the power button) of the Go fixed it.
    I tried removing the battery in the controller, home and back on the controller, etc.  Soft powered the Go down and back. Didn't matter.
    Full reboot of the Go fixed it.
