Green ring blinks on controller

The green ring on both of my wireless controllers will not stop blinking. I have tried to re-connect them but it has had no effect. I even borrowed a friends control with the same result. The console seems fine and goes through the regular start up process, it just doesn't seem to be communicating with the controllers. Help me please!

When I put in full power batteries into my controller the proper way, it doesn't stop flashing. The controller is only about a week old. The battery pack works on my other controller perfectly.


If this is a new controller that did not come with the console then you have to sync it. In the front of the xbox right Next to the sd card slot, there is a tiny button Press and hold that button for 2 seconds. Then you should should press the tiny button located on the top of the controller Near battery pack. You should start to see your Controller Stop to blink and should show a green light on only one of the green parts on controller.

Turn your system on and turn the controllers on, when the controllers are blinking the four green lights, press the small white button to the right of the second memory card slot. The 4 green rings around the power button with rotate clockwise. Now press the small white button next to the left bumper on the controller. Both the system rings and the ones on the controller will blink in unison and that controller will be connected to that system. Repeat for as many controllers as you have. Hope this helps.

Dont know how to connect my xbox 360 controller


There are 2 sync buttons. One on the console and one on your controller. Push the one on your console(a small white button on the bottom front of your faceplate) You will see green lights in a circular motion. Then push and hold the small white button on the top of your controller until it also does the circular motion then release. You should then see the controllers and console link and the lights will stop blinking. There you are(connected) I hope this helped

Controller wont hook up with console ?


Is this a new controller?
Are the batteries new/recharged?

This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both

Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!

Step 1 | Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.

Step 2 | Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.

Step 3 | On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.

Step 4 | On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.

Step 5 | After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Light indicator on console
Green light in the center- power is on
Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected
Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller

Light indicator on wireless controllers
No lights - no batteries
Green steady light on one quadrant - connected
Blinking green lights - its either its ready to connect or the batteries are dying

*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries
*Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries
*If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.

If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement.
If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.

*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.
