Re: setting up a 360 wireless controller
Turn Your Console and Controller On
The Xbox® Guide button in the center of your controller puts the Xbox 360® experience at your fingertips. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn your console on.
To turn on your console only, press the power button on your console. To turn on your controller only, press the Start button on your controller.
Once on, pressing the Xbox Guide button gives you immediate access to the Xbox Guide. To turn off your console, press and hold the Xbox Guide button for three seconds and then confirm your selection.
Turn Your Console and Controller Off
To turn your console and controller off, press and hold the Xbox Guide button on your controller for three seconds. Then select whether you want to turn off just your controller or both your controller and your console. (Selecting the console will turn off both the console and all connected controllers.)
To turn off one controller when multiple wireless controllers are connected, press and hold for three seconds the Xbox Guide button of the controller you want to turn off, then select Turn Off Controller.

When you connect a controller to your console, it is assigned a specific quadrant, which glows green to indicate the controller's number and position. Each subsequent controller connected to the console (up to four) is assigned an additional quadrant.
If system problems should arise, the Ring of Light on the console will flash combinations of red.

If you're using the XBox 360 component/compositve AV cable, try the switch at the base of the cable to switch from HD to SD or vise versa. If that doesn't work, try MS's official reset instructions:
To reset your display settings, follow these steps:
Make sure there's no disc in the disc tray.
Turn off the console.
Turn on the console.
Note If you're using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, make sure only one wireless controller is connected to the console, and then turn off and restart the console by using the Guide button on that controller.
As the console starts, press and hold Y while pulling the right trigger on the controller. The display settings are reset to the default settings, and then the console automatically restarts. Xbox 360 E or Xbox 360 S console: To reset display setting on these console models, you can also just turn off the console and then hold the power button on the front of the console down for about 10 seconds. (The lights will flash several times.)
With the new Xbox 360 interface, the how-to below is not working anymore! You can do the following to reset your console:
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
2. Turn the console off.
3. Turn the console on.
Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the
console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do
this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left
quadrant light is on.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.
This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the
default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK
when the Xbox 360 console restarts.
FOR PS3 :
Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after
the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's
native resolution for all settings.
I assume this is the one you bought separate. Well the problem is that you need to sync it. To sync it First you must Press and hold the tiny button in the front of the xbox next to the sd card slots for about 2 seconds. Then look at your controller and on the top of the controller next to the battery pack there is a tiny button similar to the one on the xbox. Press and hold until it flashes. then your controller should work.
There should have been an instruction manual that came with your wireless adapter. But anyways, you may be connected to a password protected router and need to put in the password via the dashboard. I'm pretty sure you would goto network settings and then select the network you'd want to connect to.
Hi there. There might be some solution out there that would work for you, KboxMod. Here it is :
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, remove any discs from the disc tray. Turn the console off and turn it back on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.
The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console.
Note: If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left quadrant light illuminated.
Try it a few times, some say it took a few retries to get it working. It might just need a reset of those video settings.
Hope that helps, cheebster.
