Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

1 Answer

My Xbox 360 upper left controller light doesn't work

The light on my controller that shows that it's on and is the first player one isn't working. The other three work, so it must have burned out. Do I replace it, or wait for it to work again? I have a wireless one for the Xbox 360.

The LED most likely burned out. I would just replace it if it is annoying to you.

Hi melissami133

PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF ITS HELPFUL !

FOR XBOX:

With the new Xbox 360 interface, the how-to below is not working anymore! You can do the following to reset your console:
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  • 1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  • 2. Turn the console off.
  • 3. Turn the console on.
  • Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
  • 4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.
FOR PS3 :

Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Game loads okay but controller does not work. controller is brand new. lights work on controller but can not ply any games


If the controller is brand new, you need to Sync it with your XBox 360.

Turn on your 360 using the button on the console.
Turn on the controller by holding the X button in the middle.

With both on, click the SYNC button on the xbox 360.
Then click the SYNC button on the Controller.

The green ring around both should flash a few times, then the upper left quadrant should light up on both meaning it's Sync'd.

Enjoy.

My microsoft xbox 360 wired controller won't work. The upper left and lower right corner lights blink one and then about 10 seconds later all the lights blink but don't configure to a designated player...


The controllers are probably broken. If i were you i would try contacting xbox customer support to see it they could give you a new controller. Im pretty sure that the controllers run off of the same warranty as 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.

Hi there. There might be some solution out there that would work for you, KboxMod. Here it is : To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, remove any discs from the disc tray. Turn the console off and turn it back on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console. Note: If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left quadrant light illuminated. Try it a few times, some say it took a few retries to get it working. It might just need a reset of those video settings. Hope that helps, cheebster.
