I have a guitar for heroes of rock, xbox 360. The coloured buttons just doesn't work at all. The other bits all work fine, i can't seem to select anything with the buttons.

  • The guitar controller is worn out, and you will have to replace it. It happens all the time. Those things aren't made to last long
  • Please reply if you have any other questions. Good Luck! (Please give 4 thumbs up, I do this for a summer job!)

I have a brand new controller which came with my new xbox 360 and i have put the batteries in the correct way as instructed but when i press the xbox guide button nothing happens. I have also tried to sync...

The guide button won't work until its synced,you need to push the button on the console to look for controllers then the button on the controller and it will sync it and then it should work fine. If that doesn't work then try hitting the button on the controller first then the one on the console.

I can not getdangeroushunts20 controller to connect

Try pressing the sync button on the top of your controller and the one on your xbox (under memory card slots) at the same time. If this doesn't work, try changing the batteries.

Hi, my second xbox controller wont connect, it keeps flashing on and off i've tried to hold the wee button in at the back of the controller but it is still not working. is there anything else i can do?...

Before you press that small button in the back of the controller you must first press a small button located in the front of the xbox. After this is pressed then you may proceed to press the"wee"button you did before.

Changing controller player 2 slot with XB360 wired controller

Alright, I've been playing around with it and i found a way.
You'll need to be pretty quick with it. The best way i found is to hit the xBox button, then quickly unplug the controller and plug it into another port.
(You will have to press the xBox button, it will give you a better chance at getting this, it'll tie up the driver for a split second)
This will get you over to player 2. If it doesnt work the first time, try it again a few times, switching ports each time.
