    My controller doesn't turn on at all, got brand new batteries yesterday. It's really strange because I haven't touched it in months, but whenever I take off the back cover theres this blue liquid, not alot just a small drop.

    Does the controller have a connectivity button, one specified to connect it wirelessly to the XBOX?

How can I get the player remotes to connect to the xbox360?


First you hold the big X button in the middle to turn the controller on. Next, after making sure your 360 is turned on, push the connect button on the 360 controller so the lights around the big X are spinning around. Finally, push the connect button on the 360( which is located directly to the right of memory unit B) and the lights around the on/off button of the console should spin. Eventually, your console will find the controller, and you will know its connected because one single light on the controller will remain lit while the others wont.

This could be that your hdmi cable is not inserted correctly, make sure that it is pushed fully into the console and the tv.
let us know if this helped.

Blinking power light will not stop


I think you only have two options here.  1. Change the batteries or 2. hit the small white button on the top of the controller between the triggers and also hit the small circular button on the xbox to the right of the memory slots.

My second wireless controller for my xbox360 wont work.


You still have to hit the sync button on the controller and on the console to marry them. Just like when you first got the console. Just hit the small round button on the console that is between the memory card slot 2 and the power button, and the sync button on the top of your controller. The lights on both will spin then lock. They will be married and you will see the controller 2 light on on your ring.

Wireless controller flashing green light but wont detect xbox360?


Have you tried resyncing your xbox and controllers? On the controller, press the little circle button on the top of the controller, between the bumpers. On the 360, there's a small circle button, about half inch wide, next to the memory card ports. Press that as well.

Turns on but no picture or sound and the machine sounds quiet?


I was having the same problem, and what seemed to fix mine was my hard drive. I keep my 360 on it's side and it [hard drive] was falling out a little. I pushed it back in and that seemed to do the trick. Also, when I fix my red rings, I just turn the console off, unhook EVERYTHING and leave it out for a minute. Then I hook everything back in (power cord, hdmi cable, ethernet cable, and hard drive) and it usually works out ok. I'm not saying that fixes everything, but, it has for me in the past.

Xbox360 problem


You need to connect the controller to the console. Hit connect on the controller so the lights flash in a circle. Then hit the white button on the console and they should find each other. If not check batteries..

Hope this helps
