It sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.

When all lights correspond, your headset should be properly connected.

  • When you turn off the console, the controller will reconnect the next time you turn on the console.
  • The controller can be connected to only one console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different console, but the connection to the previously connected console will be lost.

I keep trying to connect to xbox live and it is saying there was a problem with my connection when I test the xbox live connection. It can be a bad wireless connection because my laptop is having no...


Even if other devices are not having a problem connecting to your wireless access point, it is usually a good idea to try those steps first.
1. Unplug the power cord from your modem. 2. Unplug the power cord from your router. 3. Wait 10-15 seconds. 4. Reconnect the power to your modem. 5. Reconnect the power to your router. 6. Wait 30-45 seconds while the devices reconnect to your service provider. 7. Retest your Xbox Live connection.
This process is known as power cycling. It removes the temporary files and caches stored in the devices, so when you reconnect a device, such as your Xbox, it's actually making a new connection request rather than trying to use the previous connection, which in some cases becomes corrupted and results in a connection error.
(I've had to do this several times with my own Xbox. Computers connect to the Internet just fine, but Live says there's a connection problem. Power cycling fixes it every time.)

I just got a refurbished xbox 360 elite and when i turn the wireless controller on it doesn't connect. It just keeps blinking. How do i get it to connect?


To begin, turn on your xbox 360. On the top of the wireless controller, to the right of the LB button there is a small white button. Hold this, and the lights near the xbox button will spin in a circle. On the front of your xbox 360, there is a button to right of the memory card slot. Press this button and the lights on the front of the xbox will spin. After a few seconds, the controller should synch with the xbox. If this does not work, make sure that the lights are spinning in circles at the same time.

Please let me know if you need any more help

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 (http://www.xbox.com/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 WIRELSS CONTROLLERS JUST BLINK WONT CONNECT


Did you try to press the sync button on both the XBOX and the controller? This should make them connect after they take a second to find out that their searching for eachother. If this doesn't work then you should call into Microsoft and talk to them because the sync system might be faulty. Try the controllers on another XBOX before calling just to make sure though.

XBox 360 wireless controller won't connect or charge


Guys, you really need to calm down... I have the same problem like you.

I'll tell you step by step why the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller won't work.

1. The controller will automatically disconnect during the gameplay, and the charging kit won't charge.

Solution: This is true what I'm saying now... Where you guys brought your wireless controllers in the stores, there was a Frequently Asked Questions book inside the kit. It told you about the importance of the charging of your wireless controller, because Microsoft informed that it's VERY important to empty your battery before charging it, because the charging kit will no longer charge your battery, and the same thing happened to me. So, if you have any questions of your wireless controller, then contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. I'll give you new information how to fix your wireless controller.
