You have to synchronize the controller, press the small sync button on the Xbox, then press and hold the big round button in the middle of the controler.

How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?


Yes, this can be tricky sometimes.

Be close to your console when synching your controllers. As always make sure the controller is on.
You will need to press both the synch button on the console and on the controller approximately the same time. If you have done this correctly. The controllers should have synched to the console in a few seconds.

Here is a link to show you how to do it for the Xbox 360.

Connect controller to your Xbox 360

To synch a Xbox One Controller go to link below here.

Connect wireless Xbox One controller to your console

Also just in case the light is flashing the and the controller is already synched, that means the battery is low and you need to change it out for new batteries.

Hope this has helped and good luck.

You need to sync the xbox with the wireless controls. Turn on XBOX , there is a small button next to where the memory card goes in . Press the button - green lights will circle on the xbox, while its doing that, press + hold the tiny button on top of the controller . This will sync the control to the right XBOX

Xbox 360 controlle not working


Have you tried pressing the sync switches on both devices, its the little white button on the top of the controller and the one on the 360 is near the memory card b slot (round white one) press the one on the controller and the lights shoudl start flashing then press the one on the 360 while the lights are still flashing they should then flash on one light about 3 times to indicate success. if this doesnt work you may have a faulty RF(radio frequency) unit, this is the wireless device which communicates with the controllers, if this is the case you can get this replaced at your local pc shop for around £20 to £30.
Hope this helps

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.

Gamestop Edge PS2 Wireless controller wont work. New batteries and the square control (router) box just keeps blinking green. I pressed the button for reconnect and it still does nothing I need...


If the light on the controller is flashing then the batteries are still good. There is a small reset button on the receiver that came with the controller. use a needle to reset it while it is still in the ps2. make sure that the ps2 is turned on and the green light is flashing on it. it should blink a few times and then the light on the controller should turn red. once it does then press start and your good to go.
Hope this helps!

Wireless Les Paul guitar light keeps flashing after I sync to 360


I had the excact same problem with a Microsoft wireless controller. It just showed it synced fine and the controller dropper off the rig right after, keeping blinking idly as always when unconnected.

Solution: When you power the console on with the X button on the controller, try pressing the connect button on the controller then, apparently the console looks for controllers when it's just opening the user interface. Had to try it twice but it synced fine just as I was giving up hope, and has been working ever since!

Tried connecting controller with xbox on and buttons doesnt work


If you power up a new controller and the Ring of Light lights just keep cycling around in a circle without settling on a position, this means that the game console does not recognize that controller.

This can happen with a new controller or when replacing batteries.

To sync it up with the XBox 360, you need to first turn on your game machine,

then turn on the wireless controller (push the Xbox button and hold it until it lights up),

then press the little connect button on the game console (round button to the right of the two memory slots on the front of the machine),

then press the connect button on the rear of the wireless controller in between the left and right buttons that you normally push with your index fingers (above and to the right of the battery release button).

The Ring of Light will cycle on the controller and then it will be assigned a position by the Xbox and stay lit. To turn a controller off or disconnect it, press and hold the Xbox button in the middle for a second or two until the light goes off - if you are in the middle of a game it will ask you if you want to turn off just the controller or the console as well. When the console powers down, all wireless controllers are automatically turned off.


If this does not work, attempt to connect with a different controller to make sure that the controller you are trying to use is not defective.

Hope this helps!

My orange light keeps blinking..


Try to do a reset on the router. Hold down the button on the back of the router for 1 second. Then try to connect again. If this doesnt work power down both your router and your cable modem. Let them sit for a minute and then plug in the modem and wait 30 seconds. THen plug in the Wireless router. The issue should resolve itself.
