Xbox 360 controller won't work

I bought an xbox 360 controller with wireless reciever for my pc. It worked for a while but out of nowhere the reciever won't connect anymore. The controllers connecting light just sits there and flashes all four at once. And that's all it does for five minutes. Then shuts off. It isn't under the game controlers app on my computer and I don't know how to change that. It has new batterys in it. If anyone can solve my problem I would be very greatful.

    The wireless receiver doesn't light up at all. Even after pushing the button. The one on the controller searches but never finds anything. The receiver is acting like it doesn't have any power at all, and other things get power out of the same usb port. It doesn't work in any other usb ports either.

Most likely the controller can't find the signal from your wireless receiver. There should be a white button on the front of the controller that has three wavy bars on it, press that so your controller starts searching for a signal. You should find a white button with the same three bar design on it on the wireless receiver. Press that and the controller should eventually find the receiver. You may have to deviate and try different combination (press the button on the receiver first and then the one on the controller.) Sometimes the wireless controllers are finicky about the signal.

Xbox 360 wireless pc controller reciever not working??


My receiver died two days ago, i opened it up, and the Fuse was damaged, dont know how it could happen, not that much of current going thru that receiver, well the thing is all you have to do is get a solderer, and soldering iron, remove the fuse and solder a little cable so that you have a close circuit, The fuse is on the down side of the PCB (Printed Circuit Board), its named after F1

Help Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver For Windows, help help


Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, If the reciever is not lighting up then it is dead, you can try to take it to walmart and exchange it for a working one, they are usualy good at swapping out and if they give you a hard time buy a new one and return it with the old reciever instead of the new one. I hope this helps you.

XBOX 360 Wireless Controller PC Connection Problem


WARNING: try at your own risk!

I kind of fixed it. The problem appears to be with the USB controller - specifically, my mouse (a Razer Copperhead) and the XBOX 360 wireless receiver. A lot of work went into the solution, but I essentially ended up uninstalling and unplugging all of my USB devices (you can uninstall them using device manager in System Properties>>Hardware within Control Panel. Look for Universal Serial Bus and uninstall everything in that category). Reboot. Then, I first plugged in the device in question (my 360 receiver). Afterwards, I one by one plugged in each item until I found the one conflicting with the receiver (my mouse). After that, I uninstalled all devices again and next uninstalled the drivers for the conflicting device (my mouse in this case) and rebooted again. After this, I tried several times to uninstall and reinstall the mouse and various USB devices until finally it worked (sort of).

I call this a partial solution because now I appear to have the opposite problem. My mouse seems to be conflicting with another device (probably the 360 receiver). My mouse refresh rate is very choppy. The good news (for me) is that I can uninstall the USB controller for the mouse, reboot, and both the 360 controller and the mouse will work fine... that is until shut down. Then I have to uninstall the mouse controller and reboot again. Needless to say, I keep my computer on more than usual now.
