When you plug it in hold down the X button in the middle of the controller. When it blinks, sync it in the 360, but if it doesn't connect blow the USB connector at the tip of the controller, and hook it up again. If not, get a wireless controller. They are way better.

Learn how to connect a wireless or wired controller to your Xbox 360 console.
Connect a wireless Xbox controller
  1. Turn on your console.
  2. Press and hold the Guide button on the controller until the controller turns on.

  1. Press and release the connect button on the console.

  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.

71add0b7-ddf2-4439-b4b4-f50f156d92b7.png?v=1#controller-batteries-m-m.png If the controller does not turn on, check the batteries. Insert fresh AA batteries, making sure they are correctly positioned in the battery case.
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.
Connect a wired Xbox controller

cbe46bf0-3a46-4d53-9d8c-6697aa57622a.png?v=1#controller-cable-release-m-m.png The cable on the Xbox 360 Wired Controller has an inline release. The inline release on the controller cable is a safety feature designed to reduce the chance of the Xbox 360 console falling if the cable is pulled.
Wireless controller troubleshooting
If your wireless controller disconnects or cannot connect to your console, see Xbox 360 Wireless Controller disconnects or can't connect.
If your wireless controller does not turn on or loses power, try the following solutions:
Solution 1: Replace the batteries
Insert a new set of AA alkaline batteries into the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, and then try to turn it on.
Solution 2: Try a different battery pack
If you have another Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, take the battery pack off that controller and attach it to your controller. Then try to turn your controller on.
If your controller works with the different battery pack, your original battery pack might be defective. If your controller is under warranty, you can order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support . See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.
If your controller is out of warranty, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store.
Solution 3: Try a rechargeable battery packIf you or a friend has an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack, attach that battery pack to your controller and try to use your controller. If your controller works with the rechargeable battery pack attached, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store or order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support. See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.

Xbox 360 controller right trigger always activates


There are a couple things you should try before buying a new controller. First, make sure that when you start your pc or xbox 360 that you are not pressing the trigger, as this can make it stick while it is on. Next, you can try to plug in/turn on the controller and then plug out/turn off the controller a few times in a row, this may work also. If neither of those work, then you could still try with a different console or pc, and if the problem persists to those, I would think about buying a new controller.

I have a wired controller, and everytime i plug it into a PC or Xbox the 2 light and the 4 light on the controller flash for a second and dont respond. Its like the controller isent even plugged in.


You're gonna need a replacement controller.. Sorry..

Buy used from Game Stop or similar game recycle store.. If it don't work you can take it back for refund or exchange.. and it's much cheaper than new.

Xbox 360 controlle not working


Have you tried pressing the sync switches on both devices, its the little white button on the top of the controller and the one on the 360 is near the memory card b slot (round white one) press the one on the controller and the lights shoudl start flashing then press the one on the 360 while the lights are still flashing they should then flash on one light about 3 times to indicate success. if this doesnt work you may have a faulty RF(radio frequency) unit, this is the wireless device which communicates with the controllers, if this is the case you can get this replaced at your local pc shop for around £20 to £30.
Hope this helps

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.

When i plug my wired remote into my 360 it lights up for a minute then goes off wireless works fine but it does this in both usb ports


As wireless works ok and you have the same problem with both USB ports then it's possible that the wired remote has a loose or broken connection wire.

This also happens with wired headsets, in many cases it means replacing the controller.

Xbox 360 wired control pad won't work


Possible fix, make sure your contacts are clean, and your cable is not damaged. Obviously the 5v lines are connecting, but no data is getting through. I reccomend using a q-tip to get any grime off, but you may need rubbing alchohol (90% reccomended because it dries cleaner). Clean off the connections on the xbox and the controller. If it still doesnt work, list any extras you have plugged into your controller, and the estimated time you bought the controller.

If all else fails, I've just got a great deal on a MadCatz xbox 360 controller ($25) and its fully functional, minus the controller faceplates if thats your cup-o-tea.

Sync the controller. Press and hold the sync button on the controller, and go over to the Xbox 360 console, and press and hold the Xbox 360 console sync button. Wait for a few seconds or until the controller lights stop blinking. Then test out the controller.
