There is a round button on the front of the controller and the console. Press one then the other, the order shouldn't matter. Press them within 10 seconds of each other. After a few seconds, the console should recognize the controller. On the controller, this button is between the triggers and on the console, it is between the memory card slots and the power button.

Mx vs atv alive says activate second controller


I guess it's as easy as pressing A or Start.

But if the controller really isn't connected anyways, you have to:

1: Turn on controller, and hold the sync button ( just to the right of the Left Bumper ).

2: Press the Sync button on the Xbox 360
> Slim version: Sync button is placed just beside the usbports on the front of the xbox.
> Original version: The sync button is placed just beside Memory Slot B ( looks pretty much as the one on the xbox controller.

3: The controller should connect and sync automaticly to your Xbox 360.

My xbox 360 wireless controller will not connect to my xbox 360 console even when i press the button that scans for the pad but it still turns on the xbox 360 when you press the middle button on the pad


Turn off both the console and the controller, then follow these steps:
  1. Turn on both the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller and the Xbox 360 console.
  2. On the console, press the connect button. (to the immediate right of the memory card slot on the console)
  3. On the controller, press the connect button. (Look on top of the controller for a small button.)
  4. The green lights that surround the Guide button on the controller and the power button on the console spin and flash when the controller is being connected to the console. After the controller is connected, a single green light illuminates on the controller and on the console to show you which quadrant the controller is connected to.

MY CONTROLLER WONT CNNCT TO MY XBOX EVEN WEN I SYNC IT . ITS BRAND NEW.


You might have to replace the batteries in the controller, as if the battery life is low the controller will have issues syncing to the xbox 360. Just in cause, To sync the controller to the xbox 360, you must turn on the controller using the xbox guide button and then press the Wireless Sync button right next to the Controller Charging Port. Then you must press the sync button on the xbox 360. You must do this semi-quickly, or the sync process will not complete.
Lastly, You also might have a faulty controller, I suggest you go back to the store you got it from and see if they will replace the faulty controller.

My wireless xbox 360 controller is turned on and connected, and when I am on the main screen of my game it works, but when I start playing I can't do a thing, including pressing start.


It sounds as if the xbox it self is locking up. If that is the case than you will need to contact Microsoft directly regarding the issue. I have also listed the steps to trouble shoot the controller as well.

1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above.

If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.

If your controller works with another xbox and no other controllers work with your xbox than there is a issue with your console.

For issues related to the xbox I would suggest contact xbox directly by calling 1800 my xbox.

If possible please rate the solution I have posted.

Game loads okay but controller does not work. controller is brand new. lights work on controller but can not ply any games


If the controller is brand new, you need to Sync it with your XBox 360.

Turn on your 360 using the button on the console.
Turn on the controller by holding the X button in the middle.

With both on, click the SYNC button on the xbox 360.
Then click the SYNC button on the Controller.

The green ring around both should flash a few times, then the upper left quadrant should light up on both meaning it's Sync'd.

Enjoy.

Xbox 360 wireless controller not connecting.


it sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.
