Cannot pair left controller/ blinking white light

My left controller suddenly stopped working. I have unpaired and paired, Reset the oculus, and Changed the batteries; it still will not pair. It continues to blink white over and over.

 

Is there a solution for this??? Frustrating!!

Heyo there! Seems like there may be a slight error. 

 

As for controller pairing issues, we do suggest reaching out to our Support team where we can take a further look into some available options.

I don't have a solution but I'd like to say this same issue happened to me out of nowhere a couple days ago. It suddenly said tracking lost and I assumed the battery needed to be changed, well, no matter how many batteries I tried nothing solved it.
Searched the various solutions that worked for some people like un-pairing the controller and re-pairing in he oculus app... the update appears to be successful, restart headset, no avail, it returns to the constant blinking mode. Even when the headset is off, it's forever blinking.
I factory reset my headset twice and... no dice there either.

 

I've never dropped or thrown or spilt liquid on the thing, the battery compartment looks fine, cleaned it, alas...

 

If this is a recent software update issue, I sincerely Oculus addresses it and makes a fix so the headset can recognize the controller again...

 

I tried for 5 hours, maybe 6, and at this point I'm tired.
It's maddening. 

Yup I did all the exact same things. Also it says the the firmware is updating and that it was successful but then still doesn't pair. This is absolutely ridiculous to say the least. 

I was having this issue and my controller started blinking the SOS code.  I finally got it fixed by unpairing it and then while repairing it and the app telling me it was updating the firmware I held down the Oculus and y button at the same time until the controller blinked and vibrated and then paired. Then  I turned off the Oculus and let it sit for a while turn it back on and it was working fine. This was after several days of going around in circles trying to take the battery out unpairing, re-pairing, updating firmware Etc.

Well it worked for a couple hours then just randomly unpaired again. I got it to pair back up and it worked fine until I sat the oculus down for a while, went to play som more and it was unpaired again and this time wont pair again... What a PITA
