Have you tried new batteries? Sometimes the life meter can be inaccurate (depending on the type of battery), so it's not crazy for it to die spontaneously, even from something like 50% life. Otherwise, please submit a support ticket. Thanks. https://support.oculus.com/

Thanks Cybereality, yes I did put a new battery 😞 like I said its brand new...
It worked for a few hours then the hand just stood there, it moves but in the same location.

Try putting the two controllers side by side, turn out the lights and take a pic with your phone(Or any camera),  I suspect you'll see LEDs on the working controller but none on the one that's not moving.

But, also submit a ticket.

Hey so I'm having a similar problem. my left controller isn't functioning properly, the LED is on on both, the hand in VR stays on the ground regardless of where I move the controller, but the hand still opens and closes when I press the buttons. I have re-setup both the tracking and the play area, as well as restarting the computer several times, yet it still doesn't work correctly.

Okay so I have no Idea what the problem could be. I tried everything to make this work, unplugged the headset several times, took out and reinstalled batteries (that came with the things not even a week ago) restarted my computer several times and re setup my tracking several times. both steam and oculus say that it's tracking, the LED is on, when I press buttons the left hand opens and closes, and if i try really hard and swing the controller REALLY hard the hand moves in VR (But only in short bursts and in random directions.) I was playing rec room when this started and it happened out of nowhere. it was working one second the next it was just moving all over that place. let me reiterate that this is just the left hand malfunctioning and that the right hand works perfectly fine.

Just got a brand new oculus quest from best buy, after I set everything up, the left hand would stay in the air, the fingers would move but it would not e where my left hand actually is. Very similar to Josephg2, if not the same thing.
