Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

1 Answer

We have 2 xbox 360 controllers. The one works fine and we use it all the time. We recently got our first 2-player game. We went to turn on the second controller but it won't turn on. It has brand new batteries in it and it's not the battery pack. We tried it in the controller that works. When we try to turn it on, all four lights around the power button just continuously flash.

You have to first sync it with your xbox... there should a little white button on top of your controller, and a white button next to the memory card slots of your xbox.. hold both for 3 seconds to sync them

Game Mat as second player? how do I make it the first player


Turn off both controllers, then start the one you want to use as first, first. If that still fails, you can turn off both controllers then resync the first one using the sync button on the top of the controller and front panel of the xbox. If you are using a wired controller, you will most likely need to turn your xbox off then on, and connect the controller you want to use as first player, first.

  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 went to turn on my xbox wireless drum kit and the light just came on for a second and then went out so i replaced the batteries, several times but it still wont come on


Well you can try this solution to get it too work. The thing with the XBOX 360 is that it has a hard time syncing with other controllers made by different companies. So try these steps first and see if they work if not you might have got a set of bad drums.
Step 1. Turn on XBOX 360 Step 2. Turn on drums (hold xbox button on drums). Step 3. Press sync button on 360 (XBOX ligh on console should start circling Step 4. Press sync button on drums [under D pad] (xbox light on drums should start circling)
If this doesn't work then you should RMA the drums to http://rockbandservice.ea.com to replace the bad ones.

Screen won't show up but this is diffrent


This happened to mine and it had to be sent back to be repaired (3rd time) as the graphics card had failed; it started with the display colours looking strange, then the picture went totally. If you can hear everything working (beeping/whooshing" as you go through the "blades", it sounds like you have the same problem. below is how to reset to the default display sttings just in case anything has gone wrong on this.

To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps: (Copy and pasted from Microsoft support pages)
  1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  2. Turn the console off.
  3. Turn the console on.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.

    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
  4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.

If this doesn't work then try phoning XBOX Support on 0800 587 1102.
