Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

None of my wireless controllers will sync. They were all previously synced and worked fine, one morning i tried to use them and they would not connect. I have tried syncing by pressing both the button on the controller and the 360 at the same time but both just have their lights spin. No new electronics have been added so there is no new interference, and it sits on a desk so there is no overheating or signal blocking. Ive taken the hard drive off and unplugged the console then tried and got nothing. I have a play and charge kit and if plugged in the controller can turn on the console but wont connect and/or allow me to do anything once the console boots. I have a wired controller and it works. Any ideas?

Your Xbox 360 console is utilizing wireless connectivity for controllers through a radio frequency. Chances are the receiver for that frequency might be encountering some hardware failure for your console or for the controllers. You might want to try connecting your wireless controllers to a different console and see if it will work. If it does connect, maybe it is time for your Xbox 360 to give a little visit to the Microsoft Service Center.

Jesus do you know any other way to fix this problem? My sons Xbox was extremely dirty and got hot very quickly. I took it apart to clean it. I know that voids the warranty so I just want to do it myself. I am very good with electronics so I'm not worried but just not sure what I'm even looking for or how to fix the issue.

None of my wireless XBox 360 controlers will connect to to my XBox 360. I have tried replacing batteries, syncing it with the system, turning my system off then on again, removing any obstructions near the...


If the wireless controllers won't connect under any circumstances even with the Charge-and-Play Cable then you most likely have a problem with a board inside your 360, i think it's like the RF board or something, mind you, the C-P cord only forces through an electrical charge and does not force the controller and console to connect, it just works when your batteries are low, in the event that your console is faulty, you can purchase RF boards and replace them yourself (voids the warranty but takes 20 minutes) or send it into XBox HQ (gives you more warranty but takes like 6 months)

Used my wireless mouse yesterday morning and then couldn't work in the evening.


I think that you should change the battery of the mouse or could be that the sync is not there anymore. Try syncing the mouse again by pressing the sync button at the bottom of it for 10-15 seconds.

Why can't my wireless controller find my xbox360? It was working fine a few hrs ago but now it's just blinking. I press both buttons at the same time and I have tried separate times WTF lol


I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above.

If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.

If your controller works with another xbox and no other controllers work with your xbox than there is a issue with your console.

For issues related to the xbox I would suggest contact xbox directly by calling 1800 my xbox.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

If that doesn't work you may have an internal controller error and your best bet is too replace it.

Wireless Les Paul guitar light keeps flashing after I sync to 360


I had the excact same problem with a Microsoft wireless controller. It just showed it synced fine and the controller dropper off the rig right after, keeping blinking idly as always when unconnected.

Solution: When you power the console on with the X button on the controller, try pressing the connect button on the controller then, apparently the console looks for controllers when it's just opening the user interface. Had to try it twice but it synced fine just as I was giving up hope, and has been working ever since!

My new *WIRED* Xbox 360 Controller just blinks!!! *HELP*


Wireless:Mostlikey a battery issue or sync issue..
Wired:mostlikey a bad cable..
Wireless with cable:mostlikey a battery or sync issue or cable..

Unknown fact. Controller wires are ment to fail as to make more profits.. How you might ask.. if you have a old wire try stripping off the plastic and the fibermesh wire protecting that four wires are presnt a white and green wires which are for sync and control, and black and red for + and - power imput/output for charging/powering the controler.. What microsoft dosent want you to know is the black and red wires they make 2cm shorter then the green and white.(Note: This has been proven through over 45 wire checks over the past year.)

This causes the wires to rather break over a time through any number of ways the wires handled.. or to burn out through a short in the wires.. most of the time frying your controller in the process. Only solution to extend wire lifetime: Hang the wire strait in a vertical line off of something for example a wall or door.. the usb plug is fine but the problem area is between the "knot" and controller mount on the opposite end of the wire. solution #2: Dont buy wires.. battery packs and battery charge stations are cheaper in the end.

Xbox 360 wireless controller not connecting.


it sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.

360 wireless controller


Hey tavis,

Try this, make sure if you have any cord controllers, that they are unplugged.

Turn off the console.

Make sure the controller is off too.

Turn on the console, and then press the wireless sync button on the console itself.

Then, press the sync button the controller. This should def work for you.

If it still does not work, it sounds like something could be wrong with the system, since you say it works on a friends.

Is this the first time using a wireless controller on your 360?

Try using your friends wireless controller since it works for his, just to see what it does on yours.
