A: If you remove the Gear VR from your head or the current connection ends, the controller enters sleep mode.


Press the controller's trigger, touchpad, or any keys to deactivate sleep mode and re-enter Bluetooth pairing mode.


The controller will be reconnected to the previous mobile device automatically.


• If the controller and the mobile device are not kept within the Bluetooth connection range, the controller will be disconnected.


• If the batteries are removed from the controller or the Bluetooth feature is deactivated in the mobile device, the controller will be disconnected.


• If the Bluetooth connection is lost due to a problem with the connected mobile device, access the Bluetooth menu on the mobile device to pair the devices again.
