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.
The flashing lights on the outside of the green power button are the status lights for any connected controllers. Just turn on one of your wireless controllers and the green status lights should come on. If you turn on a controller and it doesn't automatically connect, press the connect button the top of the controller and front of the Xbox at the same time. This should connect the controller.
If the battery has run flat you may need to pair the controller to the Xbox, Switch on your Xbox and press the small button to the right of the memory card slots, the four green lights will start to flash. Now press the small button that is next to the socket on the front of the controller.
If this is a new controller that did not come with the console then you have to sync it. In the front of the xbox right Next to the sd card slot, there is a tiny button Press and hold that button for 2 seconds. Then you should should press the tiny button located on the top of the controller Near battery pack. You should start to see your Controller Stop to blink and should show a green light on only one of the green parts on controller.
Is this a new controller? Are the batteries new/recharged?
This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both
Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!
Step 1 | Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
Step 2 | Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360
console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is
the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.
Step 3 | On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
Step 4 | On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
Step 5 | After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller
and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the
Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the
controller is connected.
Light indicator on console Green light in the center- power is on Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller
Light indicator on wireless controllers No lights - no batteries
Green steady light on one quadrant - connected Blinking green lights - its either its ready to connect or the batteries are dying
*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries *Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries *If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.
If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement. If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.
*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.
