    I think I have the same problem, except... My controller's light ring is always flashing and never goes to one flashing one for one player or two player. So I can never update my XBox 360 for Halo Wars.

    My controllers both stopped working. Changed batteries in both still nothing. Is it possible they are just bad and I need to purchase new.

I have the issue mostly when the batteries are about to die, Try changing the batteries, or if you are using a play and charge kit (sold seprately) connect it to your xbox 360 and one of the front usb ports. Or replace the rechargeable battery.

How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?


My only guess would be that you disconnected the cable to the sensor while cleaning your Xbox. Have you checked all the connections before reassembling it? Check out the video I linked, maybe it'll help you!

How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?


Yes, this can be tricky sometimes.

Be close to your console when synching your controllers. As always make sure the controller is on.
You will need to press both the synch button on the console and on the controller approximately the same time. If you have done this correctly. The controllers should have synched to the console in a few seconds.

Here is a link to show you how to do it for the Xbox 360.

Connect controller to your Xbox 360

To synch a Xbox One Controller go to link below here.

Connect wireless Xbox One controller to your console

Also just in case the light is flashing the and the controller is already synched, that means the battery is low and you need to change it out for new batteries.

Hope this has helped and good luck.

Xbox 360 controlle not working


Have you tried pressing the sync switches on both devices, its the little white button on the top of the controller and the one on the 360 is near the memory card b slot (round white one) press the one on the controller and the lights shoudl start flashing then press the one on the 360 while the lights are still flashing they should then flash on one light about 3 times to indicate success. if this doesnt work you may have a faulty RF(radio frequency) unit, this is the wireless device which communicates with the controllers, if this is the case you can get this replaced at your local pc shop for around £20 to £30.
Hope this helps

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.

Wireless controller


I dont know if you have been able to figure out what the proble was with your 360, but the exact SAME thing happened to me. The 360 seems to be working fine, game loads, and both the consoles and the controllers rings lit up green, but then the controllers ring just keeps flashing and the console won't recognize it. I 've tried other controllers and nothing worked and obviously I tried to synch it with the console time and time again. PLEASE HELP!!!

Xbox controller not working only has two lights on game pad


There should be a sync button right on the top of the back of the Xbox 360 controller. While the system is on. Power on the controller. Hold down the sync button on the controller, and then press and hold the sync button on the Xbox 360 console. Wait for a few seconds until the Xbox 360 controller lights stop blinking. Then test out the controller. Any comments of questions, post them by clicking on the add more details link inside of this question that you've asked.
