Xbox 360 Controller - no power

I get no green light from my 360 wireless controller when I push the "ON/OFF" button. Naturally, I tried using new batteries, but if that worked I wouldn't be wasting everyone's time. Does anyone know of a possible solution short of buying a new one? XBox is used so I don't know if it's under warranty. Thanks.

    Thanks, dk26. I appreciate your suggestions. I'll try the battery pack switcheroo and see what happens from there.

The same thing happened to me the other day. My controller simply stopped working! So I called MS to report the problem, and they asked me to send it and they replaced it at no cost. They only asked me for my Console's Serial Number (I bought it on December 06 so it was under the 1 year warranty) and that was it. I received my new controller 1 week later. Have you tried using the rechargeable battery pack from MS? Because maybe what went wrong in your controller is the battery pack.

Ok the reason why the contoller just stop working is because microsoft has built all there x boxs and xbox contorlers to self destruct the have put in a little power diode like device so after so it is used for a preset period of time they stuff up that is why they will replace them out of warranty and this is not good enought i have a contact at microsoft and the reason why they put this in is becasue all the wireless devices use 2.4ghz wich is a really high freq so the only diode they could get to fit and make the circut work for this is this one wich means it is not designed for ongoing transmitting and reciving so there is nothing to do when it stop its burnt out another reason why xbox should have gone bluetooth aka ps3

  1. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.
On the Xbox 360 S console, each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console power button and the controller Guide button. On the 360 E console, a solid green light on the front of the console indicates that the controller is connected. To determine the player position associated with your accessory, look at the ring of light that surrounds the Guide button on the controller.

You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Guide button for three seconds, and then choose to turn the controller off.
  • When you turn off the console, the controller will reconnect the next time you turn on the console.
  • The controller can be connected to only one console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different console, but the connection to the previously connected console will be lost.

Wireless controller troubleshooting
If your wireless controller disconnects or cannot connect to your console, see Xbox 360 Wireless Controller disconnects or can't connect.
If your wireless controller does not turn on or loses power, try the following solutions:
Solution 1: Replace the batteries
Insert a new set of AA alkaline batteries into the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, and then try to turn it on.
Solution 2: Try a different battery pack
If you have another Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, take the battery pack off that controller and attach it to your controller. Then try to turn your controller on.
If your controller works with the different battery pack, your original battery pack might be defective. If your controller is under warranty, you can order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support . See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.
If your controller is out of warranty, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store.
Solution 3: Try a rechargeable battery packIf you or a friend has an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack, attach that battery pack to your controller and try to use your controller. If your controller works with the rechargeable battery pack attached, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store or order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support. See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.

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.

My xbox 360 AC adapter is in yellow light and the console is not working, what i do to make it to chage to green light?


If you have no power to the console or the console itself is not powered on then the light will not turn green. In other words...until you can turn the power on to your xbox 360 the light will remain yellow. Check the connection to the back of your 360 it may have wiggled loose somehow. The instant that the power brick senses power making a complete cycle in your 360 your light will turn green. If the 360 fails to turn on when you push the power button or when you push the center button on your wireless controller or when you push the center button on a wired or wireless controller that is connected physically to the 360 then I hope it is still under warranty. If not then you should contact someone about how to repair this issue. It may be that the power button is the only thing broken on this machine.

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!

You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.
