Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller

Need to get broke part out of controller

My 360 headset(wired) had the tip broke of in the connecting spot, this prevented me from using the controller to chat online even with a new headset. I have had the same problem in the past and recently discovered that the peace was pushed all the way in the controller allowing it to now connect to a new headset. this however leaves the part inside making a rattling noise when moved the controller takes that key allen key tool with the dot in the middle, so i guess all this text was to ask if anyone knows where to get one of those tools?

Try using a metal needle, take out battery pack and push it back through the hole. But you will still have to buy a new headset, more than likely

A quick search on ebay for "security torx" screwdrivers should return a set of usable drivers. Be careful that you do not get teh short bit sets to fit a standard hex screw driver as they will not reach the 2 bottom screws - I have this set of drivers and have to pre drill the holes to repair my controllers, get a set of screwdrivers with long thin stems.
If ebay fails you sometimes the local hardware store can special order them.

Xbox 360 controller not working, all 4 lights are blinking.


The wired and wireless controllers can be actively connected to an Xbox 360 console all at one time. Each connected controller is assigned a quadrant on the Ring of Light. Before you can connect a wireless controller, at least one quadrant must be free and will be unlit.

Connecting an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to an Xbox 360 Console is called Connecting. To connect a controller to a console:
First, Press and hold down the Guide Button on the wireless controller until it turns on.
Second, Press and release the power button to turn the console on.
Third, Press and release the connect button on the console.
Fourth, Press and release the connect button on the controller.
Fifth, After the ring of light on the controller and console spin and flash once, the controller is connected. The quadrant that remains lit indicates the controller's position.


Four Green lights on the controller's Ring of Light flash continuously

The Please Reconnect Controller message appears on the monitor

There is interference and the controller does not respond properly

Step 1: Ensure that either the AA batteries are new or the Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack has a full charge.

Step 2: Ensure that you have performed the proper procedure to connect the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to the console.

Step 3: If still experiencing issues, ensure there is a clear line of sight between the front of the console and the wireless controller. If there are any obstructions, especially metal objects, remove them.

Step 4: 2.4 gigahertz cordless telephones, microwave ovens, and Bluetooth headsets for cell phones can interfere with the operation of the wireless controller. Turn off or unplug those devices and then try to connect the wireless controller to the console again.

Step 5: If these steps did not resolve the issue, the wireless controller may need to be replaced.

When i plug my wired remote into my 360 it lights up for a minute then goes off wireless works fine but it does this in both usb ports


As wireless works ok and you have the same problem with both USB ports then it's possible that the wired remote has a loose or broken connection wire.

This also happens with wired headsets, in many cases it means replacing the controller.

Xbox 360 wired control pad won't work


Possible fix, make sure your contacts are clean, and your cable is not damaged. Obviously the 5v lines are connecting, but no data is getting through. I reccomend using a q-tip to get any grime off, but you may need rubbing alchohol (90% reccomended because it dries cleaner). Clean off the connections on the xbox and the controller. If it still doesnt work, list any extras you have plugged into your controller, and the estimated time you bought the controller.

If all else fails, I've just got a great deal on a MadCatz xbox 360 controller ($25) and its fully functional, minus the controller faceplates if thats your cup-o-tea.

Xbox 360 Wired Controller Busted


Yeah I foudn the problem. I just found out one of the wires was broken inside, right above where the controler meets the wire. It was a grayish wire, probably the one that turns it on. No wonder it would only turn on if the wire was in a certain position, it was connecting the wires! Problem solved.
