If this is for your console:
*Solution* - It means your controller isn't synced with your console. At the top of your controller, there is a little sync button with waves next to it inbetween the two bumpers. Press that button once, then go to your console and press the similar button located on the front of it right next to Memory Slot B. You'll see the green light run circles around the main button for a second until they recognize each other, blink a couple of times and then you'll see the green light in the top left quadrant of the controller and the console.

If this is for the PC:
*Solution* - It could be in relation to a driver issue, power issue or both. First try unplugging any other USB devices you have to your machine besides the 360 controller. The wireless dongle used to connect to the controller uses a lot of onboard power. If unplugging everything but the controller get's the controller to sync, you might have to consider getting an upgraded power supply unit if you have a desktop or just getting a wired controller.

If that doesn't fix it, you can try uninstalling the current controller drivers you have on your system, downloading and installing the new drivers from Microsoft's web-site and try syncing again.

try pressing the circle button on top of your controller right next to where you plug in your play and charge cable and you should see a little white button hold it and there is another one on your xbox right next to the second memory card slot. Press and hold that one to till both your xbox and controller start blinking and your controller should be fine

My wireless xbox controller keeps blinking green but won't connect


Have you tried leaving your console OFF first, and then Holding down the CENTER [X} button to turn your console on?

Usually that always works, I usually disconnect the battery clip and reconnect it (to turn it off) when it keeps blinking and does not connect.

Then I hold down the center button on the controller and move the left analog stick around in circles while it's blinking, and it usually recognizes it a lot faster when I do this.

-If the above does not work, disconnect the battery clip on the controller again and put it back in,

-But first (before powering on the controller) press and hold the tiny -sync- button on your xbox (while it's on),
-and then turn on your controller, and hold down the sync button on your controller, and move the anolog stick around while it does this also.

If the above does not solve your problem, I'm sorry, but I tried.

Controller


you have to press the connection buttons, one on the controller and one on the xbox 360, the one on the controller is located on top by the triggers next to the cartridge insert port right by the left button, it has 3 wavy lines next to it, when you press it, the controller will light up and go in circles. After that quickly press the button on the xbox 360 located under memory unit A, to the left of the disc eject, then the xbox 360 lights will go in a circle then automatically connect. If it doesnt work at first, try it again, but quicker.
