    XBox 360 turns on but the green lights on the front of the system do not turn on and the wireless controlers do not sync, wirelessly or wired through USB. I can navigate with the remote control but I cannot use the wireless controllers.

    My problem is that the green power button in the middle remains on, but the outside green rim shuts off after a few seconds and remains unlit.

    Any suggestion. Also, the controllers won't sync with the console

  • origilad Apr 17, 2009

    feeneymom6 i have the same problem like you describe

    the green power button in the middle remains on, but the outside green rim shuts off after a few seconds and remains unlit.

    Also, the controllers won't sync with the console
    can you tell me how did you solve this ?

  • AtariPro Apr 26, 2009

    Xbox runs like normal except controllers will not sync to console. Have
    tried usb charge kit, unplugging power, removing harddrive, playing
    without HDMI. Controllers will even start Xbox. Its deffinetly not the
    controllers because they work on my Elite Xbox. Could it just be a
    hardware problem with the pro console only? I noticed allot of people
    with the same problem posting help request' around the same date. If
    anybody has any ideas help would be appreciated...this has been driving
    me nuts for days.



    (When both sync buttons are pressed the quadrant lights spin around
    briefly and stop together like they work, except no quadrant lights are
    designated and/or remain lit)

What appears to be the problem in my case is that the RF module board in which the power button and the controller sync lies has been damaged. If aboslutely no lights come on when you power on your xbox 360, but it loads like normal, something has fried on the module and needs to be replaced. You can ether contact microsoft about this, or buy one off of ebay and install it yourself or have someone who knows how install it for you. Doing so would void your warrenty of course though.

Do you have the green light under the power symbol... looks like a 1 and 0 stack on top of each other? (right in the middle of the power button)...

When you hit the Xbox button on the controller does the controller lights blink?

If all of the above is YES then I bet you need to resync your controller to your system...
Try this turn on the console and press the small button next to the memory card ports and as quickly as you can turn on the controller and press the same little button on the front (top) of the controller... repeat for each controller

Ill go head and admit , i voided warranty and opened the lid to fix the ring of death , now i have the same problem as yall do . the first problem i ran into was the RROD then after fixing i got on Live , constantly lagging out of rooms and freezing (worked fine offline) .
the next problem was when i restarted the Xbox (which btw its a regular 360) it would freeze on startup . origanally i thought it was a BIOS problem then when it let me on , i foundout that my profile on the HDD was corrupt , i checked the HDD and the only corrupt data was my profile , not the other 15GB of stuff . when i tryed to create a new profile , it said that the "Xbox live sign in was currently un-avaliable" and that led me to believe i was banned for a mod ( it reconizes the penny trick as a mod) .
im not sure if i am banned or not but when i restarted again , i had 1 red ring . it was the 4th player ring . so i reconected the controler which landed me where yall are , the power button is on , but no rings are lit , red or green , andthe controller wont connect , the xbox wont even start .
i dont even know if it is fixable but if yall figure somthin out lemme know , ill do the same .

SOURCE: xbox turns on but i have no green lights

it sounds like that the controller will not pick up the signal.  I would try a wired controller first to make sure that all connections are good as far as operation.  If that turns out good then I would get a friends controller and try to connect it with the remote buttons.  remember to press the button on the xbox first then press the search button on the back of the controller second.  If the wired works and the wireless does not then you have a problem with the receiver in the xbox itself.

My xbox 360 will turn on but the lil green circle wont light up and controller wont connect?


Your xbox 360 may not actually be on if there's no green light and your controller won't connect. If pressing the power button doesn't turn on the console/green light doesn't come on then your motherboard may be bad.

My xbox cuts on abut wont connect


I'm thinking bad AV cable or bad port on your TV. I assume the Xbox dash board won't come up, if so the "no signal" message is a TV error message not an Xbox error message.

Try a different port on the TV and/or a different TV; also try a different AV cable.

Good luck. Please rate, thanks.
