Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

Can't sync my wireless controller to my xbox 360

My sons friend brought over his wireless x box 360 remote and I think we have to sync it to our system. Anyway, the green light keeps flashing. I found a little round button next to the charger input on the front of the controller. When I hold it in, the green light circles around like it is going to sync, but it stops and returns to flashing. What am I doing wrong??

I can't get my remotes to sync with the console.


Connecting a controller to the Xbox 360 is one of those things that should be simple but always ends up confusing and difficult.

Wired is simple; just plug in the controller into a USB slot on the console. It should connect automatically.

For a wireless controller you do the following:
1. Turn on the Xbox 360.
2. Press center Xbox button on 360 controller.
3. Press the small "sync" button on the console.
4. Press the small "sync" button on the controller quickly after step 3.
Of course I never remember the order, so randomly mashing the Xbox button and sync buttons eventually works too. Here's a link to how to sync, but with pictures!

If you're using the Xbox 360 Universal Media remote, I believe it uses an IR (infrared) connection so there is no syncing involved. To use it you just need to point it at the Xbox 360 console (specifically, it's IR receiver). Just make sure the batteries in the remote aren't dead and that the remote is in 360 mode (as opposed to TV mode; just press the "TV" button to toggle modes).

How to sync your Xbox 360 wireless controller


I have come across a few questions asking why a wireless controller is on but not connected, or why it is on and no corresponding green lights were on, etc.. So here it is: DRAGONF1R3 REPAIRS' GUIDE TO SYNC YOUR XBOX 360 CONTROLLER TO IT'S CONSOLE


Quite a title I know, but the actual guide is very simple.

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

Step 2: Power on Xbox 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.

Xbox360 wireless controller


Whenever a wireless controller is used on multiple 360s you need to resync the controller to the console. To do this turn both the controller and the 360 on, then find the little sync button on the 360 controller and hold it down until the lights flash in a clockwise circle. Now find the sync button on the 360 console and hold it down until the lights on the console spin in a clockwise fashion. Wait a couple seconds until the two sync up and then voila, you're good to go!

Here's pics of what the sync buttons look like:

360 wireless controller


Hey tavis,

Try this, make sure if you have any cord controllers, that they are unplugged.

Turn off the console.

Make sure the controller is off too.

Turn on the console, and then press the wireless sync button on the console itself.

Then, press the sync button the controller. This should def work for you.

If it still does not work, it sounds like something could be wrong with the system, since you say it works on a friends.

Is this the first time using a wireless controller on your 360?

Try using your friends wireless controller since it works for his, just to see what it does on yours.
