Ok, im figuring that you have a wireless network in your area.(to connect to xbox live. Also take into concideration that your wireless router works on the same radio frequency as your controller(it overrides the controller).
Got to your router's settings and change the redio band to the highest it will go.

How to install Polaroid Wireless Controller to a ps3

  • Power on the console either using the power button on the front, or by holding down the PS button on your first controller. On the top edge of your main controller, you should be able to see a single red LED flashing beneath the number "1." this indicates that the controller has paired with the console as the primary controller. In any multiplayer games you start, this controller will always be assigned to "Player 1"

  • 2

    Connect a second controller via the USB cable. Plug the larger end into the port on the front of the console and the small connector into the top of the controller. Check that all four lights are flashing, indicating that the controller is charging. It's advisable to let the new controller charge for as long as is practically possible; its rechargeable battery will have a longer lifespan if it is fully charged to begin with.

  • 3

    Press the PS button on the second controller and the red LED under "2" should illuminate. This controller is now paired with your console. You can continue charging the controller and use it to play or disconnect the cable and use it wirelessly.

    X box controller keeps turning itself off - I have put new batteries in

    Connection problems might be caused by one or more of the following factors:
    • Weak batteries or a weak Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack
    • Interference from another wireless device, such as a microwave oven, a cordless phone, or a wireless router
    • Metallic objects positioned between the console and the wireless controller, such as a chrome faceplate or metal dividers, shelves, or doors on an entertainment center cabinet

      Note All licensed Xbox 360 console faceplates are tested for interference, and do not interfere with licensed wireless devices.
    • There are already four controllers connected to the console.

    If your controller is still not working, try the next solution. uparrow.gifBack to the top Solution 2: Replace the batteries or the Rechargeable Battery PackInsert fresh AA batteries, or attach a fully charged Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack to your controller. If you have an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack
    • Remove the battery pack and reattach it to your controller, making sure that it is attached correctly.
    • Press and hold the Xbox Guide button. In the upper-left area of the Xbox Guide button, the battery meter indicates your current level of battery strength. You might need to recharge the battery pack, if the level is low.

    If you have an Xbox 360 Play & Charge kit
    • Make sure that the Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack is correctly connected to your controller and plugged into one of your console's USB ports. If you check both of those things but are still having the problem, try the suggestion below.
    • Plug the charge cable into each USB port on your console, one by one. There are two USB ports on the front of the console and one on the back. If the controller works in one USB port but not another, try another accessory in the USB port that did not work with the controller. If the USB port does not work with any accessory, your Xbox 360 console might need to be repaired.
    • Turn off vibration feedback (rumbling) on the controller. If you play games with feedback while charging, it takes longer for the controller to charge and might drain the battery pack faster than it can recharge. Here's how to turn vibration off.
      1. Press the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
      2. Go to the Settings area, and then select Preferences.
      3. Select Vibration.
      4. Select Enable Vibration to clear the checkbox.
    If your controller is still not working, try the next solution. uparrow.gifBack to the top Solution 3: Remove objects between the controller and the consoleThe controller works within 33 feet (10 meters) of your console. However, objects placed between the controller and the console might reduce this range. In addition, objects that use wireless technology (for example, a cordless phone) can interfere with your wireless controller. Remove or relocate objects or wireless devices that might interfere with the wireless controller or console. Here are some things that can cause problems:
    • Microwave ovens
    • Cordless phones
    • Wireless routers
    • Chrome faceplates
    • Metal dividers
    • Shelves
    • Doors on an entertainment center cabinet
    Note All licensed Xbox 360 console faceplates are tested for interference, and do not interfere with licensed wireless devices.

    If your controller is still not working, try the next solution. uparrow.gifBack to the top Solution 4: Disconnect all controllers and headsetsIf all four rings surrounding the power button on the console are green but the controller has four flashing green lights, four controllers might already be connected to the console. Disconnect all of the controllers, and then try to connect the controller with the problem.
    • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Xbox Guide button for three seconds, and then turn the controller off.
    • To disconnect a wireless headset, turn the headset off.
    • To disconnect a wired controller or headset, unplug its cable from the console.

    We have rechargeable controllers. They no longer accept a charge. We bought a new battery pack - when you plug in the USB cord from the console to the controller, it says they are fully charged, but when...

    it seems like the charge cable isnt charging the pack. have u tried using an alternate charging method like a charge stand? or try on another controller, if it still doesnt work on another controller, its your charge cable.

    Xbox 360 wont charge play and charge kit

    First thing to do is check your USB ports on the console. Plug in a flash drive or anything into all 3 USB ports to test them. If they all work you have eliminated the console as the source of the problem.
    Alternatively, if you believe it may be the play and charge kit itself, simply plug it into any usb on any pc with a controller attached. If the red charging light turns on, it is working properly.
    If both check out it simply means it's time to replace the battery pack in the controller. They have a life cycle depending on usage, and they vary greatly.

    Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, If the reciever is not lighting up then it is dead, you can try to take it to walmart and exchange it for a working one, they are usualy good at swapping out and if they give you a hard time buy a new one and return it with the old reciever instead of the new one. I hope this helps you.

    XBox 360 wireless controller won't connect or charge

    Guys, you really need to calm down... I have the same problem like you.

    I'll tell you step by step why the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller won't work.

    1. The controller will automatically disconnect during the gameplay, and the charging kit won't charge.

    Solution: This is true what I'm saying now... Where you guys brought your wireless controllers in the stores, there was a Frequently Asked Questions book inside the kit. It told you about the importance of the charging of your wireless controller, because Microsoft informed that it's VERY important to empty your battery before charging it, because the charging kit will no longer charge your battery, and the same thing happened to me. So, if you have any questions of your wireless controller, then contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. I'll give you new information how to fix your wireless controller.

    PS3 controller Problem

    I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
