My son has a xbox360 and were trying to get xbox live to connect and it wont we had it working just fine on his brothers hes not home so we hooked it up to the other xbox 360 and it wont connect

1 Disconnect all accessories and wired controllers from the Xbox 360.
2 Hold the "Guide" button down for three seconds on any wireless controllers, then respond to the prompt on your television screen to disconnect the controllers from your system.3 turn on the wireless headset by pressing the "Power" button in the center of the earpiece. 4 Press the "Connect" button on the front of your Xbox 360 system. 5 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset. The ring of lights around the power button of the Xbox 360 system should spin and blink once. One of the lights should remain lit up, indicating the port number that the headset is using. If you do not see any lights on the system, you may have a faulty wireless headset.6 Press the "Guide" button on your wireless controller to reconnect the controller to the Xbox 360 system. If you are using a wired controller, you can plug it back into the system.7 Press the "Connect" button on the top of your wireless controller to sync the controller with your system. You should see the connection light around the "Guide" button on the controller light up, indicating which port you are connected to. You should also see a corresponding port light in the ring around the power button of your Xbox 360 system 8 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset until the port light on the headset matches the light on the controller and Xbox 360 system. For example, if you are the first player, the light for port number one should be lit up on the Xbox system, the controller and the headset. When all lights correspond, your headset should be properly connected.

I had just gotten my usb that i wanted to plug into so i can transfer some items from my Xbox360 to my computer but then i noticed that the last time i had taken out the wired controller it took part of a...

The USB port is likely broken for good. However, you can buy USB hubs like this one that take one USB port and splits it into four. They're also really cheap, that one being around $3.

Also, if you only need two USB ports, there is a third one in the back of your console, right above the network port.

I have an Atari 2600 console. The Player #1 slot is stuck in the firing position. It is not the joystick. I swapped out joysticks and no change. It is something with the console. What can I do to fix this?

Well the controller ports inside of the console might be needed to be resoldered or the controller ports might be broken or it could be just bad controllers then.

My Xbox wont turn on

You may have a damaged usb port, these are the two ports under the big flap on the right hand side of your console, look inside and see if there is damage or any pins touching each other, this is easily done, just bend any pins back.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

Messed up controler port

The only way to fix that is to go inside the playstation 2 and replace it. And the other thing is that you have to find a new controller port which is the hard part. Hope I Helped

When these messages keep occurring it means the controller is either broken, damaged or about to die. I had that once with some games. For instance when I got shot and the controller rumbled it paused and said "No controller present".

Try checking other controllers, try cleaning the controller ports. (use a vaccuum to suck out dust out of the controller ports). And make sure no pins inside the controllers plug are bent or broken. if so: carefully bent it straight. Also check if the other end (the slots) aren't broken. They can be a bit wobbly.

If the problem occurs with multiple controllers which you believe aren't defective try the second controller port (I know, most games require the controller to be in Port 1) but maybe the port is broken. Which can be the result of shoving in the controllers to hard.

Also, just a hint: try not to swap controllers or Memory Card once the unit is powered on. Same goes for cables and other accesoiries.
If none of this helps, and you are sure the controllers are OK: get the console itself to either a Sony repairman or the shop you got it from.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

Ps2 controller port wont work

There is a problem with the controller port PCB. Either one of the pins have snapped or a component on the Controller port board has broken down.
Can be easily replaced with a spare off an auction site.

Controller port 1

I had the same problem once, although with controller port 2. What had happened with me is someone had jammed the controller into the port too hard and actually jarred the board inside loose. When I would plug in the controller, it fit ok but wasn't making a good connection inside the machine. This could also be caused by repeat plugging/unplugging or if a controller was pulled out by someone tripping over a cable or something. I wouldn't recommend opening the system yourself as it will void your warranty, but if this is the issue, it is very easy to fix. Another possible problem is just a bad controller, try another controller if you have one, if not, plug your current one into port 2.

Ps2 multi-tap

I had this same problem. Try plug the multi tap into the player 2 port (with a controler in the player 1 port) and so on try different arangement for the controllers (mine worked with the way i wrote). If this doesnt help, a friend of mine had a problem with the contacts in the muti tap (or the controlers), if you are experience you could try open it up and make the contacts stick out a lil more or (more preferably) contact the producer of your multitap they may be able to repair it for a decent fee
