If it will recognise wired controlers but not wireless controlers then there might be a problem with the wireless chip inside the xbox my advice is to send it back to microsoft and ask for another or ask for your money back and go to game, gamestation, hmv,somewhere like that

My left analog stick button won't work on my Xbox 360.


Try using the stick on the Xbox Dashboard. If this doesn't work, you need to use a different controller or attempt to repair your controller.

My xbox 360 will not sync with any controllers besides the one controller I've already had synced. I haven't had any problems with it until recently, and now it seems like the xbox won't...


If you have an xbox slim model then there is a button above the USB slots at the bottom. Press Start and Back on the controller until the center button lights up. Then press the button above the two USB solts and hold it for a couple secs.
If you have n old xbox there should be a simliar button some where.
Also if you bought one of the charging packs for the controller, use the cord that came with it.
Thank you for your time, Good luck and I hope it works.

I have a brand new controller which came with my new xbox 360 and i have put the batteries in the correct way as instructed but when i press the xbox guide button nothing happens. I have also tried to sync...


The guide button won't work until its synced,you need to push the button on the console to look for controllers then the button on the controller and it will sync it and then it should work fine. If that doesn't work then try hitting the button on the controller first then the one on the console.

Clear the system cache:
1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
2. Select Memory.

Press the release button on the hard drive and lift the hard drive from the console.
Turn on your console.

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.
