Controller wont function

First the green light stayed on a steady blink, now only one quarter of it stays on (not blinking).  I have never opened it and it doesn't get used very often

Re: Controller wont function

Try moving the xbox away from anything metal, most notably your TV, and then turn the xbox off. You may have to do the syncing again, but moving it away solves most people's problems.

Xbox wireless controller lights keeps blinking but

If the ring of light keeps blinking, it means that the remote controller was not connected to a receiver which is the XBox 360 console. Try to press the connect button on the console and the wireless controller to sync them together.

My xbox controllers will not charge with the plug in kit. The light turns red, then either immediately green, or it starts to blink red-off-red-off.

I had the same problem. The Battery pack on mine was dead for a long time as i havent touched my Xbox 360 in a while. So
Step 1. Plug the play and charge cord into the controller
Step 2. If Light turns green within a minute or so, Unplug the play and charge cord and go to Step 1 (Repeating this process until the light stays red on the play and charge cord (3-10 times))

My xbox360 controller acts like its attempting to sync and then does nothing but blink on both ends I just hooked it back up for the first time in a year or so..When i attempted to sync the controller the...

I had a similar issue with the XBOX 360 Wireless controller. It blinked slow when it was turned on and when synced, the XBOX got the signal, the controller got the signal, but after the full flashes of both, the console ring stayed dark and the controller kept on blinking.

I managed to get it connected by powering the console on using the "XBOX" button on the controller and then pressed the connect button just as the console was opening up the user interface, apparently the console is looking for controllers when it's just getting up and running and syncs better at that point.

Hope this helped!

Controller NOT Working Properly

I just came home to find this same problem. Four blinking lights on the wireless controller and the inability to sync the controller with my 360. On a whim I took out my controller's battery and then reinserted it after a few seconds. Voila! Problem solved. Controller works normally again!
