    The green light on the wireless controller keeps blinking, and it will not function properly. When the game says to push start, it just doesn't do anything

That totally worked! We were freaking out! Thank you. The controller was blinking green (we have had them for 1 1/2 yrs). Out in new batteries. Not the problem. The pushing of the button on the controller didn't work but the pushing of the button on the console did. Thank goodness!!!!!!! Thanks again!

If you have a wireless controller you may simply need to sync it up with your console. You'll notice on the top of your controller there is a small button to the left of the attachment slot on the top with a few 'waves' coming off of it. Press this button and hold it until the green lights on your controller start to circle around the Xbox symbol.

Once this happens you'll want to locate the sync-up button on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The button is a small, round-shaped button located to the right of the memory card slots. Press it and hold it until the lights on your Xbox 360 console begin to circle around the power button.

If this is the problem your controller and console's lights will all blink simultaneously before your controller connects.

If your controller is not wireless or this does not solve the problem I'd suggest checking with support, though don't expect a whirlwind of information to come pouring in to you.

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

-If its a wired controller to USB then should not flash as long as you dont press the big green X button with your drivers you installed.

-If its a wireless controller, you need to purchase the adapter they sell for PC use.

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.

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.
