hahaha, taping the receiver to the controller just to fix the disconnects.
I can't believe Logitech STILL hasn't fixed this issue and are simple ignoring the people here.
I got my F710 replaced by an F510 (wired version) and haven't looked back.
The F710 is broken and should not be sold.

Hello. Same problem too.
It happens more frequently when several buttons pressed at the same time. For example, playin Assasin`s Creed-2. When I get busted by a guards and running away, fighting, turning camera around searching for a hideout - and THAT`s when gamepad losing connection! Camera just keep turning around a character and I can`t stop it, need to press another button and wait till F710 wakes up. Obviously problem is in nano-receiver, as when i moved it in direct visibility zone it`s gets slightly better.
I have also an old Cordless Rumblepad-2 - this one is perfect. It works EVEN in another room. Never had any problems with it.
So I thought, what if i`ll try to connect F710 to an old big receiver from Cordless Rumblepad-2 with a Connection utility? If it will work, then i could just buy another normal-sized receiver from Logitech Support. But if it will not work, then i can lose connection to an old gamepad forever??? Oh...

Nope. Just tried, it doesnt work. Receiver from Rumblepad-2 does not see F710. Tried 5+7 buttons trick and 6+8, and connection utility, and pushing connect button on the receiver - all useless.
The only way to make F710 working properly is to put receiver really close: 30-40cm. Or sticking directly to controller, as Lumix offered at previous page.
I cant believe nobody sees a problem. Try to pass a race in Assassin`s Creed where you need to press 3 keys at the same time to run, plus turning camera plus turning a hero - and here it locks, so you just falling down from the roof and race is lost.
Well, ended up putting extension wire around me. Feels like I`m Ghost in the Shell.

just wanted to leave a note to say my controller has the same problems.
i've lodged an issue with customer support, but i'm not holding my breath for a solution.
i wish i'd bought the microsoft controller instead.
i wont be buying logitech devices again.

I'd also like to express my dissapointment in this product. I've been using Logitech gamepads for 5+ years in place of a mouse because they relieve my RSI symptoms so well. I recently decided to upgrade to the F710 after my Cordless Rumblepad 2's left stick broke and as soon as it arrived I experienced the disconnection issues described above.
I've tried using the logitech reconnect utility, a different PC and laptop, resetting the gamepad, using the extension, using the device in both modes, and using a different controller binding program (xpadder) to get rid of the issues but nothing has worked. I really wish Logitech would just offer a fixed receiver or at least acknowledge the issues with this product. I feel like the company I've respected for so long has just betrayed its loyal customers by offering a low quality product. I'll give this gamepad another 2 weeks before I send it back for a refund.
