How to Configure an Xbox Controller
Configure you Xbox controller.
The Xbox 360 utilizes two
types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a
video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You
can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a
wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
Connect the controller's cable
to the in-line release cord. This cord prevents you from accidentally
pulling the Xbox 360 along with your controller during game play.
Insert the in-line release cord's USB plug into the USB port on the front of the console.
Turn on the console to activate the controller automatically.
Insert batteries in your wireless controller, if necessary.
Hold down the "Guide" button on the controller.
Push the Xbox 360's "Connect" button, located on the front of the console.
Push the controller's "Connect" button to sync it with the Xbox 360.
Your Xbox 360 console is utilizing wireless connectivity for controllers through a radio frequency. Chances are the receiver for that frequency might be encountering some hardware failure for your console or for the controllers. You might want to try connecting your wireless controllers to a different console and see if it will work. If it does connect, maybe it is time for your Xbox 360 to give a little visit to the Microsoft Service Center.
this can sometimes be the rf receiver on the from of the 360, it sounds like its faulty. to test this try a different wireless pad and if that wont attach properly then its def the rf receiver. we can fix this for £40 which includes a new rf receiever and return postage to your door.
Make sure you sync the controller to the xbox by pressing the little white button on the top of the controller and then the same white button on the xbox near the memory card slot. Wait a few seconds and it should connect.
If so, it really sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.
- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)
I dont know if you have been able to figure out what the proble was with your 360, but the exact SAME thing happened to me. The 360 seems to be working fine, game loads, and both the consoles and the controllers rings lit up green, but then the controllers ring just keeps flashing and the console won't recognize it. I 've tried other controllers and nothing worked and obviously I tried to synch it with the console time and time again. PLEASE HELP!!!
