Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

I bought another Xbox 360 a few months ago, and for some reason, the wireless controllers take a couple minutes to connect. This happens for both my old controller and new controller, even if they're plugged in with the play-and-charge kit. The lights just blink on and off for 2 - 3 minutes, then they finally connect. I have a wireless adapter for my PC, and the controllers connect to that instantly, so it's not a problem with the controllers.

First Check the batteries ,I'm sure you did this all ready.
Second is the RF module AKA ring of lights has a weak transceiver.
This module is simple to replace affter the removl of the case and
three screws on the module itself . Then just plug and play with the
new module . They cost around 10.00-20.00 from many suppliers.

If you have any question feel free to ask.

If the wireless controllers won't connect under any circumstances even with the Charge-and-Play Cable then you most likely have a problem with a board inside your 360, i think it's like the RF board or something, mind you, the C-P cord only forces through an electrical charge and does not force the controller and console to connect, it just works when your batteries are low, in the event that your console is faulty, you can purchase RF boards and replace them yourself (voids the warranty but takes 20 minutes) or send it into XBox HQ (gives you more warranty but takes like 6 months)

Why does my xbox lag i got wireless router and modem but it started lagging 3 months ago for no apparent reason, no computer just laptop and that works fine upstairs in the same room as x box


There could be a trojan in one of the pc's that is leaking into the xbox making it run bad. Believe it or not, it was happening to our xbox. 3 pc's on one modem wireless, all were fine but one and the xbox 360 was direct into the modem via ethernet. We'd take my sons pc off line and the xbox would work great. Put the pc back online (connected to wireless) and the connection on xbox was back to awful.

Check and see if that's the problem.

XBox 360 wireless controller won't connect or charge


Guys, you really need to calm down... I have the same problem like you.

I'll tell you step by step why the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller won't work.

1. The controller will automatically disconnect during the gameplay, and the charging kit won't charge.

Solution: This is true what I'm saying now... Where you guys brought your wireless controllers in the stores, there was a Frequently Asked Questions book inside the kit. It told you about the importance of the charging of your wireless controller, because Microsoft informed that it's VERY important to empty your battery before charging it, because the charging kit will no longer charge your battery, and the same thing happened to me. So, if you have any questions of your wireless controller, then contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. I'll give you new information how to fix your wireless controller.

Hey Tafari, It's an overheating issue that is common in xbox 360 models made between a certain date range. I had the same problem a few months ago.

All you gotta do is contact Microsoft tech support and provide them with your serial number. They'll ask you a couple of questions and then they'll get you to ship them the 360. (They pay for shipping)

They'll try to repair it, but if your lucky like me, you might get a new xbox 360 with 1 month of xbox live for free.

Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.

Yes you probably have to recharge it. To recharge it you must buy a cable or adapter, which can be bought from any gaming store which sells console components.

You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.
