Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Can't Establish Player 1

I have four controllers, three of them wireless, and I suddenly can't use any of them. The machine will turn on from the controller and when I use the sync buttons the flashes on machine and controller correspond as if syncing, but once the machine has stopped the controller just continues to blink as if deciding which player to be. What the hell?

    Yeah, following usual protocol. I also tried holding both, tapping both, morse code, holding together, holding seperately, you name it. But, yeah, normally just pressing sync on machine, holding for a brief moment, then pressing sync on controller. I've had to resync them before and it was never a big deal.

    Just to double-check, after you press the sync button on the console, you are pressing the sync button on the controller, correct?

I had the same issue when I got my box back from repair. If you have a play and charge kit, I plugged the controllers in one at a time, just to get them resynchronized, works fine now. Give it a try if you have one.

Mi xbox360 controler lite suddenly started to glow by circling


Does it glow in all four quadrants and doesn't go to the player 1 quadrant? If it does, I think I just barely got past that problem! What you need to do is: Turn your controller on (make sure the 360 is on first) press the connect button on the console, then the most important part: HOLD THE CONNECT BUTTON ON THE CONTROLLER! This was a real biggy for me, i just tapped the button instead! hope i helped!

Setting up a 360 wireless controller


Turn Your Console and Controller On The Xbox® Guide button in the center of your controller puts the Xbox 360® experience at your fingertips. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn your console on.
To turn on your console only, press the power button on your console. To turn on your controller only, press the Start button on your controller.
Once on, pressing the Xbox Guide button gives you immediate access to the Xbox Guide. To turn off your console, press and hold the Xbox Guide button for three seconds and then confirm your selection.
Turn Your Console and Controller Off To turn your console and controller off, press and hold the Xbox Guide button on your controller for three seconds. Then select whether you want to turn off just your controller or both your controller and your console. (Selecting the console will turn off both the console and all connected controllers.)
To turn off one controller when multiple wireless controllers are connected, press and hold for three seconds the Xbox Guide button of the controller you want to turn off, then select Turn Off Controller.
To turn off your console only, press the power button on your console
When you connect a controller to your console, it is assigned a specific quadrant, which glows green to indicate the controller's number and position. Each subsequent controller connected to the console (up to four) is assigned an additional quadrant.
If system problems should arise, the Ring of Light on the console will flash combinations of red.

I hope this solved your problem.
Happy Gaming!

Wireless controller position


Try this:
Under heading "How can I change the screen positions for my wireless controllers?"
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/resources/supportfaq.htm

To reset the screen configuration for an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console and any connected Xbox 360 wireless controllers.

    (To turn off your wireless controller, power down the system and wait for the lights around the controller's Xbox Guide button to disappear.)
  2. Manually turn on your Xbox 360—don't use your controller's Xbox Guide button.
  3. Press the connect button on the front of your console. This is the small button just to the right of (or below, if your console is on its side) the port for Memory Unit B. The lights around the console's power button will flash as the console searches for a wireless controller.
  4. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn on the wireless controller that you want to assign to slot one.
  5. Once the controller is on and the lights are still circling the power button on the console, press your controller's connect button, located just to the right of the charge port.

    When the lights on your controller stop spinning, the wireless controller is configured to slot one and the upper-left quadrant light will glow.
  6. Select the controller you want in slot two and repeat steps 4 and 5. You can configure up to four wireless controllers.
