    My halo wireless controller worked and sync the first time I used it but now it isn't sync'd when I tried to use it for the 2nd time. It just keeps flashing the green lights in the ring. I tried syncing again and it won't work.

Press the small white button on the Xbox then immediately press the small white button on top of the controller. They should connect

How do i sync the wirless controller to the xbox


There's a button on the front of your 360 and the same button is on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it on your controller and the green lights around the xbox guide button start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I've linked a video for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim.

I bought an xtra x box 360 controller and it wont work the unit is all brand new. the one that came with box console works but the other one wont. people say i have to sync it and i dont know were the...


You will see the syn is a very small button on the top of your controller. There will also be a sync button (with same emblem next to it) under the little flip cover on the front on the bottom or the right depending on how you xbox is setting. Press the xbox first then immediately press it on the controller the ring should flash then circle and you controller should be working. Note this may take couple tries they can be tricky some times.

Wireless XBox controller won't sync with the PC adapter


I finally found a solution that works for me (most of the time). I bought a USB hub (un-powered at the moment) and the problem seems to have disappeared. The Hub however isn't the solution. Running the controller or the hub from the rear motherboard ports is.
I was initially using the 360 wireless receiver from the front ports on the PC which are driven by a different circuit on the motherboard than those from the rear of the PC.
When the receiver is run from the rear ports or in my case a hub powered from the rear ports it works most of the time.
Ocassionally the receiver doesn't link with the 360 controller however unlike last time when pressing all kind of combinations of re-sync buttons did nothing, all I do now is press the very tiny white button on the front of the controller and it links up like it should within 1.5 seconds.
I hope this helps guys as the controller is great when working.
Cheers
Karl

XBOX 360 NON-Wireless controller has me running around in circles


More than likely one of the microswitches inside the controler has colapsed, making it seem like you are always pushing the control that direction.. Also I have seen the wires pulled out of the top of the controller from people constantly wrapping the wire around the controller when not in use - this can damage the controller and make it act up as well.

Xbox controller


Try re-syncing the second (non-working) controller to the console. To do this turn both the controller and the 360 on, then find the little sync button on the 360 controller and hold it down until the lights flash in a clockwise circle. Now find the sync button on the 360 console and hold it down until the lights on the console spin in a clockwise fashion. Wait a couple seconds until the two sync up and then voila, you're good to go!

Here's pics of what the sync buttons look like:
