The motion controls on the Joy-Con such as tilt or shake are not responding correctly.
You are unable to calibrate the motion controls on the Joy-Con.
The Joy-Con can be used as wireless controllers with Nintendo Switch Lite.
What to Do:
Ensure your console has the latest system version installed.
Update the controller firmware.
With the Joy-Con detached, reset the controller by pressing the SYNC Button once. Then press any other button to power on the Joy-Con again.
Ensure that nothing is covering the IR Motion Camera on the the Joy-Con (R).
If a protective cover is being used with the Joy-Con, remove it temporarily.
Some games such as the Eating Contest within 1-2 Switch specifically require the IR Motion Camera to play.
Calibrate the motion controls on the Joy-Con.
Verify that the software or application you are using supports motion controls.
Some games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe require the motion controls to be activated manually.
Situation Not Resolved:
If the motion controls are not responding with any supported software, or if the motion controls calibration fails, then the non-working Joy-Con controller(s) may have a fault.
If only one Joy-Con has an issue, specify if it is the left or right controller.
