Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I bought a new xbox 360 wireless controller and i went to connect it to my 360 and when i pushed the wireless button on the controller, the controller did it's job and nothing was wrong with it, but when i tried to push the wireless button on the console like it said to do=the lights on the console didn't light up around in circles or w/e like they were supposed to do. does anyone know why my xbox 360's wireless button isn't working?ppls help me with this. or at least tell me how to fix it..ty, a very mad gamer!!! lmfao!!!
I had the same problem with my new controller. The trick is to hold the connect button on the console for a few seconds and then hold the connect button on the controller. The main part is to hhhhoooolldddd it until the ring lights up.

I had the same problem. You just have to buy a plug and play cord and when you plug your controller in it automatically syncs the controller to the xbox. It's like $20 at best buy and it comes with the charger cord and a rechargeable battary

Press both buttons at the same time next time you try. If it still doesnt work, Call customer support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX

You need to press the little button on the xbox360 first then press the little button on the top of the controller its next to where you charge it. hope this helps.

The cable worked for me as well. Here is the detail on why:
On my xbox, I traced the problem all the way to a poor solder connection under U2C1. The switch is connected to a pullup resistor, which holds a signal high until the button is pressed. On my xbox, the voltage levels all behave as expected all the way to the other end of the 10k resistor that leads to U2C1, which means that the problem has to be either inside of the circuit board or under the chip. I suspect the chip for other reasons but am not willing to try reflowing the solder of a BGA if there is another way to get it working.
After reading this forum, I bought the play and charge cable from Best Buy today for $15 and was able to get my wireless remote to sync instantly. The connection was maintained after I unplugged the cable. Thanks for the help!

I had the same prob and couldn't find any advice...This MAY be your problem.
Take off the xbox's face plate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTkvZCeUAwo). Look @ where the connect button lines up. On the back of the plate you should see the backside of the button. It SHOULD be a 1/4 inch or so piece of plastic aimed toward the inside of the xbox. THIS is the part that actually physically goes in initiates (presses against) the connection inside the xbox. When I first found mine it was bend sideways (probably from jamming it in so hard lol). Just put some super glue on it and when it's completely dry, connect the faceplate so that the plastic part actually goes in it's hole with no interference. It should now work (you'll here it click like a button). Hopefully it helps!!

The Xbox 360 utilizes two
types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a
video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You
can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a
wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
