Xbox 360 will appear with three even after i cleaned the thermal grease and did the penny trick any other solutions?

Cleaning the thermal grease and doing a trick with few pennies doesn't solve anything, the problem is that the soder between the Cpu / gpu and the mainboard melted during overheating and is not making the proper contacts the only way for you to fix it at home is to overheat the console again with the heatsinks loosened a bit so the components have room to move a millimeter or less to the right position and the console will work again. If not, read the secondary error code by pressing the controller reconnect button down together with the eject disc button, the flashing code will change, write down how many leds are flashing, then press the buttons again, and write down how many are flashing, repeat 3-4 times until your back into the "Red right of death". Tell me code you got, for example 4422 (4 digits)

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!)

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.

The second controller won't work with my xbox360 so that 2 of us can play

Your second controller is probably not synchronized with the xbox. there is a small white button on the top of the controller. Press and hold it until the lights on the xbox guide button starts to glow and spin (only works if the controller is on). Then press and hold a small white button located on your xbox located to the left of the xbox power button, it will light up and do the same. The xbox and the controller will find each other.

Note that I am talking about the old white version of the xbox. For the new xbox slim you press the small black button next to the USB ports on the front.

Hope this helps : )

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.

Xbox 360 is on. There is no light whatsoever on the console and the green ring is flashing on the controller

I think it is trying to re-sync with the system. There is a button next to memory slot B on the sytem. Press it. If that doesn't do anything, take the batteries out of the controller, put them back in and if it still doesn't connect, press the little button to the left of the headset input on the controller, then the button on the xbox.

How to setup two wireless controlers to an xbox

  1. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
  2. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.
  3. On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
  4. On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
  5. After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.
  6. Note If you want help connecting an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to your Xbox 360 console, you can contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support ( Web site.

  • The controller remains connected to the Xbox console even when you turn off the Xbox console.
  • The controller is connected to only one Xbox console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different Xbox console at any time, but your connection to the previously connected console is lost. You must repeat these steps to reconnect the controller to the original console after your connection to the console is lost.
  • The controller works within 33 feet (10 meters) of your Xbox 360 console. However, objects between the controller and the console may reduce this range.
  • If the controller does not turn on, the batteries may have to be replaced.

Xbox 360 turns on by itself

Your controller has the ability to turn on the Xbox by pressing and holding the guide button. Check to make sure it is not stuck on any of your controllers. The Xbox can also pick up regular remote signals. One of your other remotes (if you have any) may be interfering with it. If your Xbox came with a media remote, make sure none of its buttons are stuck. Also, fluorescent lights (the swirly bulbs and the long, narrow bulbs) can sometimes trigger things. Another thing could be a Wii remote (if you own a Wii). There could be the rare possibility that it or the light bar is causing this problem. Sorry for the long message. I hope this helps!

Most XBOX controllers can be easily taken apart. Try removing any existing screws and simply push the button manualy. Make sure to keep your hands and fingers away from the circuit board inside. Sometimes oils from your hands can cause faulty problems.
