Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox 360 Controller Shutdown

Everytime I turn on my Xbox and power up the controllers, a few minutes into my gaming, the controllers either shut off, or lose their connections. After I attempt to power them up again, the experience is repeated. I use batteries, and they are fully charged, so I suspect it is a problem with the console. Thanks for your help.

Hi there

one common problem is if you have other 2.4gzh around the house

try turning off your phones (uniden is a really common one that interferes) or if you have a wireless router change it to a different channel and see if it helps.

good luck

How to turn xbox 360 off the right way

On the xbox 360 controller, press and hold the xbox button in for a few seconds. A screen will pop up asking if you want to turn off the controller (if you are using a wireless controller) or the system.

Another option is to press the power button and wait for the system to turn off.

Game loads okay but controller does not work. controller is brand new. lights work on controller but can not ply any games

If the controller is brand new, you need to Sync it with your XBox 360.

Turn on your 360 using the button on the console.
Turn on the controller by holding the X button in the middle.

With both on, click the SYNC button on the xbox 360.
Then click the SYNC button on the Controller.

The green ring around both should flash a few times, then the upper left quadrant should light up on both meaning it's Sync'd.

Turn the vibration off in the options menu of a game that allows it, if the game play is fine then you may have to ask Santa for a new controller, as that one sounds like it is starting to fail.

Xbox won't shut down

HI there,

im guessing you have some problems with your Elites motherboard, could possibly be damaged electronics within the motherboard, as it is the motherboard on the Xbox which prepares the system for shutdown when the button is pressed and also wirelessly through the controller.

Luckily Xbox systems come with 5 years warranty. and because this is potentially a hardware issue, i would recommend contacting Xbox customer support to solve this issue. their contact information can be found on

Hope this helps

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 360 wireless controller

You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.
