Console is not syncing with controller even when it is plugged in


are you using a play and charge kit, if so just try taking battery pack out and using normall batterys, as the play and charge kit does not carry any controler info to the xbox only voltage,
so it still acts as a wireless pad even when plugged in,
so what im saying is it could be a rubbish signal due to not having enough power charge,
if this does not fix it and you have tried the proper syncing process involving bothe the sync button on the xobx and the one on the controler its probably a broken controller, you should borrow one off a friend to see if that will connect to make sure not a faulty xbox
thanks

Opt out the easy way and put a rechargeable battery pack in the controller and use a plug and play controller cord to connect the console to the controller and , voila!, they should be now sync'd to each other.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Wireless controler won,t connect to consol


I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above of course.

If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.

If your controller works with another xbox and no other controllers work with your xbox than there is a issue with your console.

For issues related to the xbox I would suggest contact xbox directly by calling 1800 my xbox.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

My friend brings his wireless 360 controller and when he turns it on the system and controller doesnt connect. why?


Are you syncing it? (Press and hold the small button next to the power on/off button on the Xbox 360. It's a tiny little round thing.) Also, you have to press and hold a similar button on the 360 controller, next to the RB button.
If you have tried this and it is still not working, try turning off the Xbox 360, and syncing his controller to the console first. (Meaning before you sign in, or even turn your controller on.) If this doesn't work either, I would suggest testing another controller. (Perhaps it is his controller that is faulty in some way.)

Hope this was of some help.

My controller will not link with my xbox. it just flashes 4 green lights around the circle. what can i do?


Did you sync it? here's how to sync it:

Step 1: Power on your Xbox 360 console2_bing.gif. In this guide I'm assuming everyone already has their console2_bing.gif hooked up, if not, contact me.

Step 2: Power on Xbox2_bing.gif 360 Controller. Make sure it has a battery pack that has correctly place and working batteries or charged re-chargeable battery pack.

Step 3: Locate the small circular sync button on your controller. It is near where your controller can be plugged in (between the LB and RB).

Step 4: Locate the small circular sync button on your Xbox 360 console. It is next to Memory Unit slot 2.

Step 5: Press and hold the controller sync button until the green power lights start spinning.

Step 6: While your controller lights are still spinning press and hold the console sync button. The console's lights should spin also, then flash, and finally show the player slot light on both the console and the controller.

Viola! You've synced your wireless controller! You can sync up to four controllers.
Also, you can use this guide to sync to different Xbox 360 consoles. So you can bring only your controller to your friend's house.

Note: If you sync your controller to another console, you will have to re-sync it to your own afterwords.

Neither of my xBox 360 wireless controllers will sync with my 360 console. I have tried both contollers with a variaty of battery packs and they still wont sync but i have no problem with my wired...


Remove the batteries from both controllers, and unplug the Xbox for a minute. Now turn the Xbox on by the power button on the console, Install the batteries in your controllers, and hit the Console sync button first, then hit the little sync button on top of the controller.
If this does not work, you can purchase the wired charge pack that you must plug in to the USB port of the console to charge, and this will sync as your wired controller does. When it is synced unplug the wire from the controller and voila. Remember, the charger pack will look like this.

Wireless controller issue


The fact that the controller is not syncing to your console even when connected via the Play and Charge cable leads me to believe that your controller is more or less "a goner". The wireless controllers should automatically sync with the console when plugged in via the cable, so since yours doesn't sync I would guess there is something wrong with the IC chip inside and somehow something got corrupted.

Out of curiosity, when you plug in the cable how can you tell the controller is on if it doesn't sync? Do the lights continuously spin around in a circle? Do they just flash? Does quadrant 1 light up like normal but pressing buttons on the controller doesn't do anything?

My wireless controller is constantly losing its connection


If you are using regular batteries try turning off the "vibration". I tried this and it works well no more problems.

I don't believe a wireless network would cause you to lose signal , i am sure Microsoft thought of this before the console was released. It could also be that your batteries are low and in need of replacement.

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.
