Xbox 360 controllers not responding

When I press the centre button the 4 green lights on the controller keep flashing and I am left with no means of controlling games. The dvd remote works ok it's just game controllers. This is with a brand new box and I have tried both options in controller setup.

All 4 lights keep on blinking on my controller


You may need to "Sync" the controller to your Xbox console.

1) Press the sync button on your Xbox 360. The green lights on the Xbox will swirl.
2) Press the small white button on the controller (between the bumper buttons).

After a few seconds, the position 1 green LED should light up on the controller.

Xbox 360 controller not working, all 4 lights are blinking.


The wired and wireless controllers can be actively connected to an Xbox 360 console all at one time. Each connected controller is assigned a quadrant on the Ring of Light. Before you can connect a wireless controller, at least one quadrant must be free and will be unlit.

Connecting an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to an Xbox 360 Console is called Connecting. To connect a controller to a console:
First, Press and hold down the Guide Button on the wireless controller until it turns on.
Second, Press and release the power button to turn the console on.
Third, Press and release the connect button on the console.
Fourth, Press and release the connect button on the controller.
Fifth, After the ring of light on the controller and console spin and flash once, the controller is connected. The quadrant that remains lit indicates the controller's position.


Four Green lights on the controller's Ring of Light flash continuously

The Please Reconnect Controller message appears on the monitor

There is interference and the controller does not respond properly

Step 1: Ensure that either the AA batteries are new or the Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack has a full charge.

Step 2: Ensure that you have performed the proper procedure to connect the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to the console.

Step 3: If still experiencing issues, ensure there is a clear line of sight between the front of the console and the wireless controller. If there are any obstructions, especially metal objects, remove them.

Step 4: 2.4 gigahertz cordless telephones, microwave ovens, and Bluetooth headsets for cell phones can interfere with the operation of the wireless controller. Turn off or unplug those devices and then try to connect the wireless controller to the console again.

Step 5: If these steps did not resolve the issue, the wireless controller may need to be replaced.

I cant get the xbox to work from the controllers, when i press the "x" button on the controller it just keeps flashing and doesn't allow me to link up with the console


The "x" button is the xbox guide button that is in the center of your controller.
1. First, turn on your console by pressing the power button on the console itself.
2. Next, press the xbox guide button that's on your controller. (The button that lights up and flashes when you press it).
3. On the front of your console, just to the right of the memory card B slot & just below the right corner of the DVD tray, there is a small, round connect button.
4. With the both the console & the controller on,(lights flashing) press and release the connect button on the console first.
5. Then on the controller, press the connect button (green arrow, circled in red) that's between the Left Bumper button (LB) and the charging port (blue arrow).

6.The lights on the controller and on the console should continue to go in a circle and stop.
7. The upper left quadrant is controller # 1, the upper right quadrant is controller # 2, bottom left is # 3, and the bottom right is # 4.
8. Once the controller connects the the console,you're all set. Then the next time you go to turn it on, just press the xbox guide button on the controller and it will turn the power on to the console for you.
9. If you ever take your controller and use it on another 360 console, you have to go through the same connection steps as you just did. And then again, when you get back to your console

Hope this helps! Happy gaming!

Controller wont hook up with console ?


Is this a new controller?
Are the batteries new/recharged?

This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both

Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Light indicator on console
Green light in the center- power is on
Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected
Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller

Light indicator on wireless controllers
No lights - no batteries
Green steady light on one quadrant - connected
Blinking green lights - its either its ready to connect or the batteries are dying

*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries
*Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries
*If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.

If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement.
If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.

*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.

Controller


you have to press the connection buttons, one on the controller and one on the xbox 360, the one on the controller is located on top by the triggers next to the cartridge insert port right by the left button, it has 3 wavy lines next to it, when you press it, the controller will light up and go in circles. After that quickly press the button on the xbox 360 located under memory unit A, to the left of the disc eject, then the xbox 360 lights will go in a circle then automatically connect. If it doesnt work at first, try it again, but quicker.
