Look on the bottom of the wireless controller, while it's NOT connected to the usb wire, there is a small hole for a paper clip. Press the button down softly for 10 seconds release, then another 10 seconds release, then plug it back to the usb wire, press the PS button, give it a few seconds to work, then try it wirelessly. should fix it.

How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?


My only guess would be that you disconnected the cable to the sensor while cleaning your Xbox. Have you checked all the connections before reassembling it? Check out the video I linked, maybe it'll help you!

How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?


Yes, this can be tricky sometimes.

Be close to your console when synching your controllers. As always make sure the controller is on.
You will need to press both the synch button on the console and on the controller approximately the same time. If you have done this correctly. The controllers should have synched to the console in a few seconds.

Here is a link to show you how to do it for the Xbox 360.

Connect controller to your Xbox 360

To synch a Xbox One Controller go to link below here.

Connect wireless Xbox One controller to your console

Also just in case the light is flashing the and the controller is already synched, that means the battery is low and you need to change it out for new batteries.

Hope this has helped and good luck.

I have installed my NetGear Wireless adapter, and it worked great up until now. Now, when I plug it into the USB port, the light on the adapter flashes blue like normal, but the icon on the bottom right of...


Have you unplugged from power for 5 minutes? And/or look on the back of the adapter push the little button and reset it. Unplug from power first to see if that works.

YT-9014A1 will not sync


i just sync both of mine to my ps3 it was giving me difficult at first, but i noticed the when u first put in ur usb wireless thing it starts to blink really fast and when u push the p3 button on the controller twice it flashes really fast. so i took out the wireless usb thing then put it back in so the light on it would be flashing really fast like it was searching for somthing, then press the p3 button twice to make the lights flash really fast aswell so it will sync with it. Thats how i got both of my controllers synced we my ps3. the lights on on the wireless usb thing and the controller lights must be flashing fast at the same time to sync.

Controller not working


I had the same problem, so I called customer service and had me do this:

1) with the USB cable plugged into the controller, power down the ps3 and turn the on/off switch in the back to "off".
2) hold your thumb down on the front button (where you normally can turn it on) while turning the switch on the back to "on" again. keep your thumb or finger on the front switch.
3) You will hear the normal "beep" that you usually hear when the PS3 boots up, but after a few seconds later, you will hear a secondary beep. Remove your thumb or finger after this second beep and the PS3 will reset itself after a few seconds. I have a projector connected to it, so I had to set the display screen back to HDMI afterwards, but when I disconnected the USB cable the controller worked wirelessly again. The customer service rep said that this allowed the controller to pair with the PS3 again. Note: You probably do not have to have the controller plugged into the USB cable at all while doing this. I just happened to have it plugged in. Hope this helps.

Controller NOT Working Properly


I just came home to find this same problem. Four blinking lights on the wireless controller and the inability to sync the controller with my 360. On a whim I took out my controller's battery and then reinserted it after a few seconds. Voila! Problem solved. Controller works normally again!
