Tip & How-To about Video Game Consoles & Games

Xbox360 Controller sync issues.

This is just a helpful tip for people like me who have more than one Xbox in their house and when they need to sync their controller with another Xbox you need to unplug it from the power supply, causing the nuisance of resetting the time and date as well as needing to do the same when you wish to return to your original Xbox36.
Its as simple as it is ingenious.
If you wish to , for example, go downstairs and play your brothers Xbox, simply take with you your plug and play charge cable, by plugging your controller into Another Xbox360 via the plug and play charge cable, you are syncing that controller to that Xbox without having to kill the power on your own, thus avoiding the date and time issue.
I hope this offers some sort of assistance for all the gamers like me out there. Good Luck

HOW TO CONNECT NYKO XBOX REMOTE TO THE XBOX


There will either be a button on the controller....usually pretty small circularthat you will need to press along with the "sync" button on your xbox console. Sometimes aftermarket sync buttons are very small "pen tip" like.
There may be a usb stick needed as with some Logitech products.

If that doesn't work you may have an internal controller error and your best bet is too replace it.

my controller will not link with my xbox. it just flashes 4 green lights around the circle. what can i do?


Did you sync it? here's how to sync it:

Step 1: Power on your Xbox 360 console2_bing.gif. In this guide I'm assuming everyone already has their console2_bing.gif hooked up, if not, contact me.

Step 2: Power on Xbox2_bing.gif 360 Controller. Make sure it has a battery pack that has correctly place and working batteries or charged re-chargeable battery pack.

Step 3: Locate the small circular sync button on your controller. It is near where your controller can be plugged in (between the LB and RB).

Step 4: Locate the small circular sync button on your Xbox 360 console. It is next to Memory Unit slot 2.

Step 5: Press and hold the controller sync button until the green power lights start spinning.

Step 6: While your controller lights are still spinning press and hold the console sync button. The console's lights should spin also, then flash, and finally show the player slot light on both the console and the controller.

Viola! You've synced your wireless controller! You can sync up to four controllers.
Also, you can use this guide to sync to different Xbox 360 consoles. So you can bring only your controller to your friend's house.

Note: If you sync your controller to another console, you will have to re-sync it to your own afterwords.

My WireLess XBox 360 Controller wont connect to my XBox 360


i had the same problem, and is a easy fix, turn on your console, dont need the controller on, and hold the sync button for approx 30 seconds, then turn the console off, take out the power lead from the console and then remove it from your mains, wait about 1-2 minuts then plug it up and switch on the console, first sync the xbox then the controller, and this should work, if it dosent try xbox support their number is on xbox.com
