It could be one of many things,
1)battery wont hold its charge
2)if the bottom corners of the battery pack holder are cracked it will keep disconnecting
3)could be controller.

Have recently purchased an xbox and the controller has connected to it once for about 10mins, i press the connect button on the xbox wait til the lights goes round and then press the controller connection...


The easiest way to connect your new conroller to your xbox is to plug it into the usb port in the front. This will identify that controller from then on to that Xbox 360 when you use it wireless. (or until you connect it to a different Xbox 360).

You might not be pushing the correct button when trying to sync your controller with the Xbox 30. On the controller you have the main guide button but the button you want is the one on top of the controller to the left of the port were you plug in your charge and play cord. It is small an of the same color as the controller. You need to push it along with the connect button on the Xbox for them to sync.

If you are still having issues then you might have weak batteries. Make sure your batteries are charged and ready to go. Try using AA batteries if you can and see if that solves your issue?

Also, some devices in your house can cause interference with your controllers if they are operating on the same frequency. (i.e. wireless phones, mocrowaves...etc.) Make sure your xbox is away from locations with conflicting frequencies. Metal shelves can also cause havoc on wireless controllers. Make sure your xbox is free of clutter and has breathing room.

Hope this helps.

X box controller keeps turning itself off - I have put new batteries in


Connection problems might be caused by one or more of the following factors:
  • Weak batteries or a weak Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack
  • Interference from another wireless device, such as a microwave oven, a cordless phone, or a wireless router
  • Metallic objects positioned between the console and the wireless controller, such as a chrome faceplate or metal dividers, shelves, or doors on an entertainment center cabinet

    Note All licensed Xbox 360 console faceplates are tested for interference, and do not interfere with licensed wireless devices.
  • There are already four controllers connected to the console.

If your controller is still not working, try the next solution. uparrow.gifBack to the top Solution 2: Replace the batteries or the Rechargeable Battery PackInsert fresh AA batteries, or attach a fully charged Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack to your controller. If you have an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack
  • Remove the battery pack and reattach it to your controller, making sure that it is attached correctly.
  • Press and hold the Xbox Guide button. In the upper-left area of the Xbox Guide button, the battery meter indicates your current level of battery strength. You might need to recharge the battery pack, if the level is low.

If you have an Xbox 360 Play & Charge kit
  • Make sure that the Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack is correctly connected to your controller and plugged into one of your console's USB ports. If you check both of those things but are still having the problem, try the suggestion below.
  • Plug the charge cable into each USB port on your console, one by one. There are two USB ports on the front of the console and one on the back. If the controller works in one USB port but not another, try another accessory in the USB port that did not work with the controller. If the USB port does not work with any accessory, your Xbox 360 console might need to be repaired.
  • Turn off vibration feedback (rumbling) on the controller. If you play games with feedback while charging, it takes longer for the controller to charge and might drain the battery pack faster than it can recharge. Here's how to turn vibration off.
    1. Press the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
    2. Go to the Settings area, and then select Preferences.
    3. Select Vibration.
    4. Select Enable Vibration to clear the checkbox.
If your controller is still not working, try the next solution. uparrow.gifBack to the top Solution 3: Remove objects between the controller and the consoleThe controller works within 33 feet (10 meters) of your console. However, objects placed between the controller and the console might reduce this range. In addition, objects that use wireless technology (for example, a cordless phone) can interfere with your wireless controller. Remove or relocate objects or wireless devices that might interfere with the wireless controller or console. Here are some things that can cause problems:
  • Microwave ovens
  • Cordless phones
  • Wireless routers
  • Chrome faceplates
  • Metal dividers
  • Shelves
  • Doors on an entertainment center cabinet
Note All licensed Xbox 360 console faceplates are tested for interference, and do not interfere with licensed wireless devices.

If your controller is still not working, try the next solution. uparrow.gifBack to the top Solution 4: Disconnect all controllers and headsetsIf all four rings surrounding the power button on the console are green but the controller has four flashing green lights, four controllers might already be connected to the console. Disconnect all of the controllers, and then try to connect the controller with the problem.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Xbox Guide button for three seconds, and then turn the controller off.
  • To disconnect a wireless headset, turn the headset off.
  • To disconnect a wired controller or headset, unplug its cable from the console.

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.

Ok, so heres the problem. My wireless Xbox 360 controller keeps shutting down every 5-20 seconds and bringing up the ''Please reconnct controller'' icon on the right. I've replaced my batteries. So is...


In case you face this problem even after replacing your batteries, you can try following two steps:

1) Check if the rear cover to battery storage that fit's to controller feels loose while attached to controller, while playing or not, becuase i encounter this problem sometimes on my controller which disconnects once in a while even with full battery charged, i remove it and re-attach again firmly it works, maybe you can try attaching a tape around it and check.

2) you may have take the controller apart and look for cold(bad) soldering on the battery leads, don't do this unless you are familar with handling hardware issues.

Check the batteries you use on some other controller in case they are re-chargeable ones in some other controller, maybe your battery charge cycle could have exhausted.

Let me know if this helps, please do take time to rate my solution

Wish you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

My Xbox 360 wont sync any of my wireless controllers and the powe


if your wireless controllers wont sync to your xbox, it could be one of 2 things.

assuming your batteries are fully charged, and that you're using a certified xbox controller, it could be that the controller itself. it is really rare that the wireless receiver inside the xbox itself, goes out, but soemtimes, it happens.

the easiest thing or you to do would be to either pick up an after market controller, or another certified controller, and see if they'll work. if you try other controllers, and they STILL dont work, verify that your system settings are correct, or are set to default, and make sure that your xbox isnt sitting close to something that could be interfering with the signal....like a wireless router for example

if this doesnt work, then it's a problem with the xbox, and you should send it back to the service repair center.

Xbox 360 wireless controller wont work unlessed plugged in


Right, just keep plugging in the charger into the controller until the light stays red, the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice for it's built in 'memory' to be clued in as to how much power is really in and will then start charging. This is usually caused by leaving your controller unused for a while usually days or so at room temperature after fully charging it in your xbox (i.e. the battery memory 'thinks' it's full and tells the xbox as much when really it's empty)
