Tip & How-To about Video Game Consoles & Games
I have come across a few questions asking why a wireless controller is on but not connected, or why it is on and no corresponding green lights were on, etc.. So here it is: DRAGONF1R3 REPAIRS' GUIDE TO SYNC YOUR XBOX 360 CONTROLLER TO IT'S CONSOLE
Quite a title I know, but the actual guide is very simple.
Step 1: Power on your Xbox 360 console. In this guide I'm assuming everyone already has their console hooked up, if not, contact me.
Step 2: Power on Xbox 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.
