Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

1 Answer

Controller all of a sudden will not turn on for more than 1 sec.

One day I go to turn my controller on and it does not work so I try again and it still does not work so I think that it is the battery pack . Later the next day I found out by switching the battery packs that it is not the battery pack . Now today I think that the problem is inside of the controller .I would like to know what the problem really is.

P.S.
I do not believe that I nor anybody else had thrown or dropped my controller from an unsafe distance .

  1. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.
On the Xbox 360 S console, each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console power button and the controller Guide button. On the 360 E console, a solid green light on the front of the console indicates that the controller is connected. To determine the player position associated with your accessory, look at the ring of light that surrounds the Guide button on the controller.

You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Guide button for three seconds, and then choose to turn the controller off.
  • 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 cant use my controler because the green part keeps bliking and wont turn on so i cant play my xbox 360


I had this exact same issue the other day. Changing the batteries did not work for me, but don't cross that off of the list quite yet. This worked for me:
1.) Pop the battery pack off of the controller. This is the only way you're going to be able to turn it off. Wait about 5 seconds and put the battery pack back into the controller.
2.) Turn on your X-Box with the power button ON THE CONSOLE. It should turn ON. If it doesn't, unplug the X-Box for 30 seconds, plug it back in, and try again.
3.) When your X-Box turns on, go ahead and hit the controller's power button. Things should function normally from this point forward.
Please let me know if this works for you!

Xbox 360 wired controller glows green for 2 secs then shuts off


Microsoft software is usually very good about finding mods within their systems. Since you have repaired a wire, it might somehow think it's been modded.

Double-check your repair work, if you used a soldering iron, it could have attached to another wire -causing a short (faking a mod). If you just twisted and taped it, you might want to consider a better fix.

Controller NOT Working Properly


I just came home to find this same problem. Four blinking lights on the wireless controller and the inability to sync the controller with my 360. On a whim I took out my controller's battery and then reinserted it after a few seconds. Voila! Problem solved. Controller works normally again!

Xbox 360 wireless contoller won't sync with game console


If you're using an HDMI connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, it might be that. When using HDMI, the Xbox won't boot up until it knows what the TV is capable of displaying. Although the controller will turn the console on, it won't sync with the console -- and it's not a controller or console problem, but just a symptom of the fact that the Xbox won't get to the point where controllers will sync until it can properly communicate with the TV. I'd recommend turning off the TV and the Xbox, disconnecting the HDMI cable and re-connecting it after making sure the contacts are clean. Then turn the Xbox back on first; you'll likely to see the same behavior. Finally, turn the TV back on. With it being switched back into HDMI mode, it just might "kick-start" the Xbox into a good communication link across HDMI. Hope that helps.

Mi xbox360 controler lite suddenly started to glow by circling


Does it glow in all four quadrants and doesn't go to the player 1 quadrant? If it does, I think I just barely got past that problem! What you need to do is: Turn your controller on (make sure the 360 is on first) press the connect button on the console, then the most important part: HOLD THE CONNECT BUTTON ON THE CONTROLLER! This was a real biggy for me, i just tapped the button instead! hope i helped!

Wireless xbox 360 controller


Hey Pete,

Xbox 360 controllers do not have that problem very often and you know what happens to me sometimes. I change the batteries and the controller still doesn't turn on. Turns out the batteries that i replaced had no juice on it. Make sure you are using the right kind of batteries too meaning don't cheap out and use the ones you get at 99c stores or anything like that. Those will work by the way they will not last more two days. Buy new batteries.

Xbox 360 wireless controller


You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.
