The reciever is the part that plugs into the console where the wired controllers go.

You will not be able to use the wireless controller without this part as the console will not be able to pick up the signal without it.

Learn how to connect a wireless or wired controller to your Xbox 360 console.
Connect a wireless Xbox controller
  1. Turn on your console.
  2. Press and hold the Guide button on the controller until the controller turns on.

  1. Press and release the connect button on the console.

  1. Within 20 seconds, press and release the connect button on the controller.

  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.

71add0b7-ddf2-4439-b4b4-f50f156d92b7.png?v=1#controller-batteries-m-m.png If the controller does not turn on, check the batteries. Insert fresh AA batteries, making sure they are correctly positioned in the battery case.
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.
Connect a wired Xbox controller
5fb17f50-7448-45d5-a294-9ea90994f55b.png?v=1#controller-wired-m-m.png Plug the Xbox 360 Wired Controller into a USB port on the Xbox 360 console. There are two USB ports on the front of the console. To disconnect the controller, pull on the connector, not the cable.
cbe46bf0-3a46-4d53-9d8c-6697aa57622a.png?v=1#controller-cable-release-m-m.png The cable on the Xbox 360 Wired Controller has an inline release. The inline release on the controller cable is a safety feature designed to reduce the chance of the Xbox 360 console falling if the cable is pulled.
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.

How can i Get it to work on a computer?...It's not responding!


Sorry, the P&C kit delivers power for charging the controller only, no data is transmitted via the cable.
To use an XBox 360 Wireless receiver with a Windows PC, you need the "XBox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows".

My controller is original dualshock3,...the stick and the pad when i turn on the ps3 on the xmb menu it rapidly goes stuck to the left any ideas before i buy another ps3...HURRY!!! i won't hold much...


Have you tried using a different controller? Usually this is the problem, your PS3 controller's D-Pad is stuck on the left side or the responding piece beneath the D-Pad is being pressured down in some manner. I recommend trying a Different controller first before buying another PS3 ( get a cheap PS3 Arcade stick or something)

Assembling the play and charge kit


The wire piece connects to the top of the controller. Align it so the light is on the front, and press straight down until it snaps into place. Connect the other (smaller) end to your console.
