Press the small round white button on the 360 and the small round white button on the controller at roughly the same time. The controller and the machine both have to be on.

Mx vs atv alive says activate second controller


I guess it's as easy as pressing A or Start.

But if the controller really isn't connected anyways, you have to:

1: Turn on controller, and hold the sync button ( just to the right of the Left Bumper ).

2: Press the Sync button on the Xbox 360
> Slim version: Sync button is placed just beside the usbports on the front of the xbox.
> Original version: The sync button is placed just beside Memory Slot B ( looks pretty much as the one on the xbox controller.

3: The controller should connect and sync automaticly to your Xbox 360.

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.

The white wireless contoller from an older white x box 360 does not connect with the black kinnect x box 360 we just purchased.. i was told they were compatible why doesnt the white controller work with...


There is a sync button next to the Play and Charge port on the controller, all you have to do is press both the sync button on the Xbox and the controller and it should connect. On the nonslim Xbox 360's the sync button is right next to the infared sensor and the memory card slots. On the slim Xbox 360 the sync button will be right next to the usb ports on the front of the Xbox 360 console. When you successfully start the sync the led's for the controller's and console's lights will spin and be ready for you to press the sync button on the other device.
(PS, you have to have both the console and the controller on for this to work; PPS, By controller on I mean having it searching)

MY CONTROLLER WONT CNNCT TO MY XBOX EVEN WEN I SYNC IT . ITS BRAND NEW.


You might have to replace the batteries in the controller, as if the battery life is low the controller will have issues syncing to the xbox 360. Just in cause, To sync the controller to the xbox 360, you must turn on the controller using the xbox guide button and then press the Wireless Sync button right next to the Controller Charging Port. Then you must press the sync button on the xbox 360. You must do this semi-quickly, or the sync process will not complete.
Lastly, You also might have a faulty controller, I suggest you go back to the store you got it from and see if they will replace the faulty controller.

When i turn on my 360 controller. It continues to blink and will not work. What is the problem?


It probably means that the controller isn't synced to the system. To sync it you press the sync button that is on the top of the remote at the same time you press the sync button on the front of the XBOX 360. The sync button is represented by 3 curvy lines.

New xbox 360 not reading old 360 wireless controller


It sounds like it needs syncing in. On the controller there is a little button between the LB & RB buttons, when pressed the the green LED ring will light up clockwise.
At the same time press the sync button on the 360, just to the left of the power button, the green LED ring on the 360 will also light up clockwise, after a few seconds both controller and 360 should sync.

Light flahes no response


If its a wireless controller this could just be a case of syncing the controller to the 360. Press the sync button on the 360 then quickly press the sync button on the controller.

Try re-syncing the second (non-working) 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:
