With any new game launch, players should expect some minor hiccups and issues. The same can be said for betas, and an issue in the Battlefield 2042 beta has been identified. Luckily this is what betas are for, and hopefully, DICE will resolve this issue in the full release.
But for now, you are probably wondering how to fix Battlefield 2042 being stuck on the main screen. The issue is that pressing the A/X button or the Y/Triangle button has no effect.

Most players are finding that his solution takes care of the problem. Additionally, make sure no other Bluetooth device is connected. Do the same for any device connected via USB. EA is aware of this issue and has acknowledged that they are working on a solution.
