Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

Controller NOT Working Properly

When I turn on my console, the green light on the controller keeps blinking but it never "connects", for lack of a better word. None of the buttons work when I press them. I've tried turning the console's power on and off. I've also tried connecting and disconnecting the controller from both the power cord and USB port. I've also alternated the USB port in which it is connected. It is a wireless controller and I've also tried using it wirelessly but that doesnt work either.

I just came home to find this same problem. Four blinking lights on the wireless controller and the inability to sync the controller with my 360. On a whim I took out my controller's battery and then reinserted it after a few seconds. Voila! Problem solved. Controller works normally again!

All 4 lights keep on blinking on my controller


You may need to "Sync" the controller to your Xbox console.

1) Press the sync button on your Xbox 360. The green lights on the Xbox will swirl.
2) Press the small white button on the controller (between the bumper buttons).

After a few seconds, the position 1 green LED should light up on the controller.

The flashing lights on the outside of the green power button are the status lights for any connected controllers.
Just turn on one of your wireless controllers and the green status lights should come on.
If you turn on a controller and it doesn't automatically connect, press the connect button the top of the controller and front of the Xbox at the same time. This should connect the controller.

Turn your system on and turn the controllers on, when the controllers are blinking the four green lights, press the small white button to the right of the second memory card slot. The 4 green rings around the power button with rotate clockwise. Now press the small white button next to the left bumper on the controller. Both the system rings and the ones on the controller will blink in unison and that controller will be connected to that system. Repeat for as many controllers as you have. Hope this helps.

Xbox wireless controller lights keeps blinking but


If the ring of light keeps blinking, it means that the remote controller was not connected to a receiver which is the XBox 360 console. Try to press the connect button on the console and the wireless controller to sync them together.

Controller wont hook up with console ?


Is this a new controller?
Are the batteries new/recharged?

This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both

Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!

Step 1 | Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.

Step 2 | Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.

Step 3 | On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.

Step 4 | On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.

Step 5 | After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Light indicator on console
Green light in the center- power is on
Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected
Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller

Light indicator on wireless controllers
No lights - no batteries
Green steady light on one quadrant - connected
Blinking green lights - its either its ready to connect or the batteries are dying

*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries
*Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries
*If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.

If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement.
If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.

*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.

I had a similar issue with the XBOX 360 Wireless controller. It blinked slow when it was turned on and when synced, the XBOX got the signal, the controller got the signal, but after the full flashes of both, the console ring stayed dark and the controller kept on blinking.

I managed to get it connected by powering the console on using the "XBOX" button on the controller and then pressed the connect button just as the console was opening up the user interface, apparently the console is looking for controllers when it's just getting up and running and syncs better at that point.

Hope this helped!

My wireless xbox controller keeps blinking green but won't connect


Have you tried leaving your console OFF first, and then Holding down the CENTER [X} button to turn your console on?

Usually that always works, I usually disconnect the battery clip and reconnect it (to turn it off) when it keeps blinking and does not connect.

Then I hold down the center button on the controller and move the left analog stick around in circles while it's blinking, and it usually recognizes it a lot faster when I do this.

-If the above does not work, disconnect the battery clip on the controller again and put it back in,

-But first (before powering on the controller) press and hold the tiny -sync- button on your xbox (while it's on),
-and then turn on your controller, and hold down the sync button on your controller, and move the anolog stick around while it does this also.

If the above does not solve your problem, I'm sorry, but I tried.
