Yeah its happened sometimes at boot if your console and controller are out of sync. I've noticed it happen when I turn the console off and then on but kept the controller on throughout that, like if my using it as a TV remote for instance, maybe its just me though.

:P Either way you can fix that with a power restart as with most things. Turn off the controller and console, unplug the power cord, wait abt. 15s, plug in the cord, power it up.


Edit: Also I noticed you just recently got the console, you are aware that the controller will only work within so many feet of the console, right? Just making sure.

Yeah I know the distance. Mine is 5 feet away from the console. And I tried those steps with Nintendo support and it still would disconnect randomly.
