Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

Two broken wireless controllers to make one good?

Hey, how's it going. I have one wireless xbox 360 controller with a
broken and unresponding left joystick (the actual joystick socket is broke). It happens! I also have a second xbox 360 wireless controller with a broken and unresponding left button (L1). This one was dropped and landed on the left button. My question is how difficult would it be
to remove and migrate parts from one to the other to make one good
working controller?

Thanks for your help?

John

Not hard the controllers wireless are all the same. You need a special tool a t8 torq tamper tool go on ebay they have them cheap with that you will be able to swap parts. remember there is one hidden screw in the lower center of the controller under the serial number sticker

My xbox 360 wireless controller will not connect to the console. Batteries are good, no metal or microwave interference, resync has no effect, another controller (new) works as it should. Help! James


Hey James,

Well, you did a lot of good troubleshooting already. Just to double check your work, visit the link below and go over the steps once more.

Click here

After that, if you are still having trouble you may just have a bad controller! I would recommend contacting Xbox support for further help. They may replace the controller free of charge or if you bought it from a store, you could return it due to it being faulty.

The support information can be accessed at the link above.

Xbox 360 wireless controller wont work unlessed plugged in


Right, just keep plugging in the charger into the controller until the light stays red, the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice for it's built in 'memory' to be clued in as to how much power is really in and will then start charging. This is usually caused by leaving your controller unused for a while usually days or so at room temperature after fully charging it in your xbox (i.e. the battery memory 'thinks' it's full and tells the xbox as much when really it's empty)

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.

Wireless controller position


Try this:
Under heading "How can I change the screen positions for my wireless controllers?"
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/resources/supportfaq.htm

To reset the screen configuration for an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console and any connected Xbox 360 wireless controllers.

    (To turn off your wireless controller, power down the system and wait for the lights around the controller's Xbox Guide button to disappear.)
  2. Manually turn on your Xbox 360—don't use your controller's Xbox Guide button.
  3. Press the connect button on the front of your console. This is the small button just to the right of (or below, if your console is on its side) the port for Memory Unit B. The lights around the console's power button will flash as the console searches for a wireless controller.
  4. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn on the wireless controller that you want to assign to slot one.
  5. Once the controller is on and the lights are still circling the power button on the console, press your controller's connect button, located just to the right of the charge port.

    When the lights on your controller stop spinning, the wireless controller is configured to slot one and the upper-left quadrant light will glow.
  6. Select the controller you want in slot two and repeat steps 4 and 5. You can configure up to four wireless controllers.

Xbox controller


The joystick breaks when a plastic piece inside breaks. This problem can be fixed using parts from a second broken controller. Open both controller cases, take a good joystick from one (can be left or right) and replace the broken piece in the other. You'll need a soldering iron, solder, and desoldering braid. You don't want to use a desoldering pump as the contacts come off the board VERY easily.

360 wireless controller


Hey tavis,

Try this, make sure if you have any cord controllers, that they are unplugged.

Turn off the console.

Make sure the controller is off too.

Turn on the console, and then press the wireless sync button on the console itself.

Then, press the sync button the controller. This should def work for you.

If it still does not work, it sounds like something could be wrong with the system, since you say it works on a friends.

Is this the first time using a wireless controller on your 360?

Try using your friends wireless controller since it works for his, just to see what it does on yours.
