You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.

The blinking green light is the "Controller Not-connected" light. I have an Xbox 360 and my wireless controller was flashing a four quadrant ring wile the play and charge cord was connected and while it was not. I could press the guide button on the controller and it would turn the Xbox on but then would still show a blinking green light and would then, not shut the Xbox off. I tried syncing the controller again and again and it would not work. I called Xbox customer service and they said if I sync the devices and that doesn't work, test a different controller and if that TOO does not work, the box needs to be sent in for repairs.
THE CONTROLLER WORKED AFTER I UNHOOKED THE POWER CORD FOR THE XBOX 360, WAITED A LITTLE, THEN RE-CONNECTED POWER TO THE BOX AND TRIED AGAIN. The Xbox always has power when it is plugged in, weather On or OFF. You have to UNPLUG THE DEVICE TO RE-SET IT. WHEN IN DOUBT, Try unplugging and re-plugging for this and other Xbox 360 problems.

Restart your computer and make sure the controller is flashing. When the wireless receiver gains USB power press the button on the receiver and then the xbox controller.

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.

If the control is wireless, try changing the battery device out, use a different type. for ex; AA batteries to a re-chargable one. If the control is wired, try changing out the cord or get a new control. If it doesn't work, try here . Hope it helps.

My xbox 360 wireless controller won't turn on


If it has a rechargeable pack on it try swapping it out with a "AA" battery pack. sometimes the rechargeable batteries can go bad. If the controller still won't turn on then you have an internal problem and you will need a new controller. :)
Or you can try getting your controller fixed, although there in not very many people that are willing to work on controllers

My Xbox 360 wont sync any of my wireless controllers and the powe


if your wireless controllers wont sync to your xbox, it could be one of 2 things.

assuming your batteries are fully charged, and that you're using a certified xbox controller, it could be that the controller itself. it is really rare that the wireless receiver inside the xbox itself, goes out, but soemtimes, it happens.

the easiest thing or you to do would be to either pick up an after market controller, or another certified controller, and see if they'll work. if you try other controllers, and they STILL dont work, verify that your system settings are correct, or are set to default, and make sure that your xbox isnt sitting close to something that could be interfering with the signal....like a wireless router for example

if this doesnt work, then it's a problem with the xbox, and you should send it back to the service repair center.

Guitar Hero Flashing Sensor Lights


Hi there,

Im guessing due to needing batteries that your Guitar is the Wireless type ?!

Have you correctly Synchronised your Xbox 360 with the Guitar controller ?

to do this, Turn on the Xbox and Guitar press the round "sync" button on the bottom of the guitar, next to its Ethernet port, and also press the small round sync button on the Xbox 360 (located to the left of the memory slots on the front face) at the same time, the rings of light on both the Xbox and the guitar will Turn in a clockwise motion letting you know they are synching, after that the Xbox will assign the guitar to a controller slot. then it should work.

If this doesn't work then im afraid your guitar may have a faulty wireless chip, which would require you to get a replacement.

hope it gets sorted !

Wireless xbox 360 controller


Hey Pete,

Xbox 360 controllers do not have that problem very often and you know what happens to me sometimes. I change the batteries and the controller still doesn't turn on. Turns out the batteries that i replaced had no juice on it. Make sure you are using the right kind of batteries too meaning don't cheap out and use the ones you get at 99c stores or anything like that. Those will work by the way they will not last more two days. Buy new batteries.
