Hey there sellina and biobat,

I had the same thing happen to me, if it's just two lights that flash for a moment and then turn off. It means the controller is having a hardware failure. I ended up just returning the controller and got a new one. This generally occurs in 3rd-party controllers like Mad Catz.

The lights keep blinking but nothing is happening. It wont connect to the console. What should I do?

It's possible the xbox 360 controller isn't connected to the xbox 360. Turn the xbox 360 on by pressing the power button, and wait until it reaches the dash board. Then press the controller syncing button on the xbox 360 itself and wait until the xbox 360's ring lights start to spin around. Then press and hold the synch button on the controller (located near the charge port) and the controller should synch up with the xbox 360.

It is possible that something happened to the AC Adapter. If you have a friend that has an AC Adapter then you can try his to see if it works. Note it possible for something to be wrong with the system its self but it look fine.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

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

Xbox 360 controller

If the control is blinks in sequence with the four LED light on the XBox 360 but it does not change to only one LED, being the one that corresponds to which player the control is, you need to remove the batteries from the control then disconnect power from your XBox 360. Wait a few minutes before reconnecting power to either then attempt to sync the control again. This resolves most issues.

Xbox controller not working only has two lights on game pad

There should be a sync button right on the top of the back of the Xbox 360 controller. While the system is on. Power on the controller. Hold down the sync button on the controller, and then press and hold the sync button on the Xbox 360 console. Wait for a few seconds until the Xbox 360 controller lights stop blinking. Then test out the controller. Any comments of questions, post them by clicking on the add more details link inside of this question that you've asked.
