I see two possibilities here, either your controller is not working well or you may have a connectivity issue.
Can you test with another controller to see if it is the same?
Please see the following for connectivity troubleshooting:

Welcome. Bummer your controller is faulty but at least you know what the issue is now. Thanks for replying.
