All 4 lights keep on blinking on my controller


You may need to "Sync" the controller to your Xbox console.

1) Press the sync button on your Xbox 360. The green lights on the Xbox will swirl.
2) Press the small white button on the controller (between the bumper buttons).

After a few seconds, the position 1 green LED should light up on the controller.

My controller and xbox wont connect


To connect the controller to your Xbox 360 console, follow these steps:
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.

Green light flashing on controller no light on 360


You need to reconnect your controller to your xbox. Next to the two memory slots on the front of your xbox, there should be a small round button. Turn on both your controller and your xbox. Push the little round button. There should be a similar button on your controller. Push that too. They should recognize each other.

Controller wont function


Try moving the xbox away from anything metal, most notably your TV, and then turn the xbox off. You may have to do the syncing again, but moving it away solves most people's problems.
