Can't recharge stuff on Skyrim

12 replies 6377 views Edited Nov 22, 2011

It refuses to let me recharge my enchanted items on Skyrim.  I know how everything works (played the hell out of Oblivion and have had Skyrim since it released).  I have plenty of soul gems (filled and unfilled) ranging from petty to grand, and a few black soul gems.  I also have Azura's Start filled to greater.  I have a legendary daedric bow, sword, and dagger (all enchanted) and can't recharge any of them.  I've tried all throughout the game with many different types of weapons.  My enchantment skill is 100 and is perked all the way up.  I've tried recharging them when they're nearly full, halfway empty, fully empty, and everywhere in between, but it won't let me.  I've also tried favorting and unfavoriting the weapons, equipping and unequipping them, and dropping them and picking them back up.

It's my understanding that when you go into your inventory and scroll to a weapon that's not full, it gives the option of pressing R2 to charge, and if you do so, it pops up your list of soul gems and you pick one.  I have the little charge option displayed, but when I press R2 nothing happens.  Holding R2 also does nothing.  I even tried resetting my controls back to default because I thought I may have screwed up something when I customized them, but still nada.  My brother who plays on the XBOX doesn't have this problem and neither do my friends who also play on PS3.

If anyone needs additional information just ask.  Any help or explanation is greatly appreciated.

This appears to be a reported glitch. Perhaps it will be addressed in the upcoming patch.

Really?  I googled it first and checked everywhere and couldn't find anybody else who had this problem.  Any chance you could post a link to somewhere listing this as a glitch just for my own personal confirmation?

Thanks, what worries me is that this not a big enough problem to get fixed in the next patch because I haven't heard of many people having it.

You might try uninstalling the game data and patch data it worked for the water freezing glitch. It might work here but I haven't heard of this issue if all else fails try looking for a fix on the skyrim web site.

I had that problem too. Despite it saying R2 to recharge, if you click L3 it will recharge!

I don't know why it doesn't work, but for the PC you can use the console to recharge your weapons. Open the command console and type "leftitemcharge #" for an item in your left hand and "rightitemcharge #" for your right hand. After the "#" add the number of charges your want.

Sorry it's not a fix, more of a workaround, but it's the best I can do.
