Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Controllers Not Registering

About four weeks ago my 360 started freezing every once in a while after I turned it on, and eventually it became so frequent that it was hard to use it.
About a week ago, it stopped freezing, but now won't register any controllers!
I'm not completely sure how long we've had it, but it's been a year and a half or more and the warranty is definintly up.
Does anybody know how I can fix this?

When it freezes it usually from inadequate venation as far as the controller bit I am not sure what caused it but try and use a plug and play cable it will auto sync the controller. Give it a try and let me know

My Xbox 360 red ringed about four days ago, so I hadn't turned it on since then. I took it home for spring break to try to fix the problem or whatever, but when I turned it on, it didn't give


They can be. If the console is not working properly the controllers usually dont turn on correctly. Try sending it to videogame911.com i used them for my red ring issue with my XBox and got it back within the week. Also they were EXTREMELY low on price compared to the manufacture and offered me a 90 day warranty with all data saved. Hopefully this works for you!

How can I get the player remotes to connect to the xbox360?


First you hold the big X button in the middle to turn the controller on. Next, after making sure your 360 is turned on, push the connect button on the 360 controller so the lights around the big X are spinning around. Finally, push the connect button on the 360( which is located directly to the right of memory unit B) and the lights around the on/off button of the console should spin. Eventually, your console will find the controller, and you will know its connected because one single light on the controller will remain lit while the others wont.

Xbox 360 controller won't work


Most likely the controller can't find the signal from your wireless receiver. There should be a white button on the front of the controller that has three wavy bars on it, press that so your controller starts searching for a signal. You should find a white button with the same three bar design on it on the wireless receiver. Press that and the controller should eventually find the receiver. You may have to deviate and try different combination (press the button on the receiver first and then the one on the controller.) Sometimes the wireless controllers are finicky about the signal.

How can i get the scene it big button pads to work


Other than dead batteries, check that the Infrared (IR) unit is plugged into a USB port. The Big Button controllers don't connect to the Xbox 360 like the normal wireless controllers. All four go through that single IR unit which is a wired connection. (Someone once unplugged my IR unit and I had forgotten that is how the Big Button controllers connect to the 360)

New game freezing about half way through


I don't think this is your xbox having a problem. This happened to me with Gears of War 2 once I just played over the game in the same spot over and over and it eventually stopped. This looks more severe for you though. It may just be a faulty game so best you can do is call the game manufacturer.

Xbox 360 controller


If the control is blinks in sequence with the four LED light on the XBox 360 but it does not change to only one LED, being the one that corresponds to which player the control is, you need to remove the batteries from the control then disconnect power from your XBox 360. Wait a few minutes before reconnecting power to either then attempt to sync the control again. This resolves most issues.

Xbox 360 controller not registering


hey there sellina and biobat,


I had the same thing happen to me, if it's just two lights that flash for a moment and then turn off. It means the controller is having a hardware failure. I ended up just returning the controller and got a new one. This generally occurs in 3rd-party controllers like Mad Catz.
