    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.

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

Problems with my xbox wirelles controller. no connection


If your batteries are good and the you see the green lights circling on the controller that means it is trying to synchronize with the system. Press the little button just to the right or just below the second memory card port on the Xbox to make the machine synch with the controller.

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.

Wii Controller


ok well there is a little compartment on the face of the wii that you have to open and it should reveal a red button which will set the wii to pick up any signals from a wiimote but to get the signal from the wiimote you need to open the compartment where the batteries go and there should be another red button you have to press and hold both the buttons at the same time and they should pick up each others signals.

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!!!

X box controller


There's a little button on the front of your 360 and the same button is on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it on your controller and the green lights around the xbox guide button start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I think there's a little symbol of air waves next to the button.
