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

So for all intents and purposes your Xbox works but your controller isn't controlling it at all, is that correct?

If so please follow the steps here which may help:

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.

Hi,

Clear the system cache:
1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
2. Select Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.

Try playing discs without the hard drive in:
1. Turn off your console.
2. Locate the hard drive on your console.
Press the release button on the hard drive and lift the hard drive from the console.
Turn on your console.
3. Try to play a game disc.

If this resolves the problem, you will need to replace the hard drive.If not, do the same thing for your memory units. If it works without them,they may be bad.
Thank you !!
