Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

1 Answer

Controller will start up the 360, then just flashes. Wont respond

We had a brief power surge while I was playing. It shut off. The 360 works fine. However, the controller won't. I can turn on the 360 by the controller, but once the system is on, the controller's 4 lights just flash, and it won't respond. When I go to sync it, the lights go flashing around on the 360 and the controller like normal, but when it "connects", there is no 1/4 of a green ring around the 360 power button, and the controller just keeps flashing. Help, please.

Remove the batteries from the controller for a few minutes to reset it then try again.

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".

Turn the vibration off in the options menu of a game that allows it, if the game play is fine then you may have to ask Santa for a new controller, as that one sounds like it is starting to fail.

Xbox 360 Controller Won't Connect To My 360....


You have to connect the controller like this: Somewhere on the XBox 360 controller there is a button that looks like this, o))) or something like that. Push that button and look at the XBox 360 round lights, they start to flash, that means you have to push the same button on the console. The o))) button should be infront of the console.

Green light flashing on controller no light on 360


You need to reconnect your controller to your xbox. Next to the two memory slots on the front of your xbox, there should be a small round button. Turn on both your controller and your xbox. Push the little round button. There should be a similar button on your controller. Push that too. They should recognize each other.

I dont know if you have been able to figure out what the proble was with your 360, but the exact SAME thing happened to me. The 360 seems to be working fine, game loads, and both the consoles and the controllers rings lit up green, but then the controllers ring just keeps flashing and the console won't recognize it. I 've tried other controllers and nothing worked and obviously I tried to synch it with the console time and time again. PLEASE HELP!!!

There's a little button on the front of your 360 and the same button is on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it on your controller and the green lights around the xbox guide button start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I think there's a little symbol of air waves next to the button.

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.
