    The xbox 360 wireless controllers will not synch to the console. All 4 green lights will flash, but it does not synch. Other wireless controllers have been tried on the same unit and do not work. However they do work on other units. The problem is definitely in the console.

First I'd test the batteries in another device to make sure they actually are full. Rechargeable batteries are great in the long run and also generate less waste.

I had the same problem with a Microsoft wireless controller. It just showed it synced fine (the four leds blinked in order 1234 and then all flashed like it's connected) and the controller dropper off the rig immediately after that, keeping blinking idly as always when unconnected.

Solution: When you power the console on with the X button on the controller, try pressing the connect button on the controller then, apparently the console looks for controllers when it's just opening the user interface and it somehow synch better at that moment. Had to try it twice but it synced fine just as I was giving up hope, and has been working ever since!

Hope I could help!

How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?


Yes, this can be tricky sometimes.

Be close to your console when synching your controllers. As always make sure the controller is on.
You will need to press both the synch button on the console and on the controller approximately the same time. If you have done this correctly. The controllers should have synched to the console in a few seconds.

Here is a link to show you how to do it for the Xbox 360.

Connect controller to your Xbox 360

To synch a Xbox One Controller go to link below here.

Connect wireless Xbox One controller to your console

Also just in case the light is flashing the and the controller is already synched, that means the battery is low and you need to change it out for new batteries.

Hope this has helped and good luck.

The lights keep blinking but nothing is happening. It wont connect to the console. What should I do?


It's possible the xbox 360 controller isn't connected to the xbox 360. Turn the xbox 360 on by pressing the power button, and wait until it reaches the dash board. Then press the controller syncing button on the xbox 360 itself and wait until the xbox 360's ring lights start to spin around. Then press and hold the synch button on the controller (located near the charge port) and the controller should synch up with the xbox 360.

How do I connect my wii controller to my wi


Hello there, what you want to do is open the back of the wii controller where you put the battery. Then you want to go to your wii and open a little slot drawer type thing next to the DVD slot. There will be a synch button on both the controllers and the wii, push the button. Note that you will have to synch each and every controller to each and every wii. Meaning if you go to your friends house and they have a wii you will need to repeat the process at their house and also again when you return to your house, but it only takes a few seconds for them to recognize eachother. Once you are synched to your machine if you dont take it to a different Wii you wont have to synch every time you want to play just the initial time. Happy Gaming

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

Xbox wireless controller lights keeps blinking but


If the ring of light keeps blinking, it means that the remote controller was not connected to a receiver which is the XBox 360 console. Try to press the connect button on the console and the wireless controller to sync them together.

Gamestop Edge PS2 Wireless controller wont work. New batteries and the square control (router) box just keeps blinking green. I pressed the button for reconnect and it still does nothing I need...


If the light on the controller is flashing then the batteries are still good. There is a small reset button on the receiver that came with the controller. use a needle to reset it while it is still in the ps2. make sure that the ps2 is turned on and the green light is flashing on it. it should blink a few times and then the light on the controller should turn red. once it does then press start and your good to go.
Hope this helps!

Keeps on blinking


you need to be a little more clear. if its a wireless controller and it DIDNT work while it was blinkin the solution is VERY easy. all you have to do is sync it with your xbox. you can sync it by pressing the button next to the memory card slots (on the console) then pressing the button on the top left of the controller (next to the trigger the xbox should read the controll and you should be fine.

My xbox 360 wont synch with my controller even if i tried pressing the buttons


It could either be one of 2 things , your controller is knackered or the wireless board where the power switch is mounted could be faulty, try a mates controller and see if it does the same.

Wireless controller


I dont know if you have been able to figure out what the proble was with your 360, but the exact SAME thing happened to me. The 360 seems to be working fine, game loads, and both the consoles and the controllers rings lit up green, but then the controllers ring just keeps flashing and the console won't recognize it. I 've tried other controllers and nothing worked and obviously I tried to synch it with the console time and time again. PLEASE HELP!!!
