Learn how to connect a wireless or wired controller to your Xbox 360 console.
Connect a wireless Xbox controller
  1. Turn on your console.
  2. Press and hold the Guide button on the controller until the controller turns on.

  1. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.
On the Xbox 360 S console, each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console power button and the controller Guide button. On the 360 E console, a solid green light on the front of the console indicates that the controller is connected. To determine the player position associated with your accessory, look at the ring of light that surrounds the Guide button on the controller.

You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Guide button for three seconds, and then choose to turn the controller off.
  • When you turn off the console, the controller will reconnect the next time you turn on the console.
  • The controller can be connected to only one console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different console, but the connection to the previously connected console will be lost.

Wireless controller troubleshooting
If your wireless controller disconnects or cannot connect to your console, see Xbox 360 Wireless Controller disconnects or can't connect.
If your wireless controller does not turn on or loses power, try the following solutions:
Solution 1: Replace the batteries
Insert a new set of AA alkaline batteries into the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, and then try to turn it on.
Solution 2: Try a different battery pack
If you have another Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, take the battery pack off that controller and attach it to your controller. Then try to turn your controller on.
If your controller works with the different battery pack, your original battery pack might be defective. If your controller is under warranty, you can order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support . See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.
If your controller is out of warranty, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store.
Solution 3: Try a rechargeable battery packIf you or a friend has an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack, attach that battery pack to your controller and try to use your controller. If your controller works with the rechargeable battery pack attached, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store or order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support. See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.

My wired 360 controller keep on disconnecting and reconnecting


You have a broken wire in your cable, most likely near you controller, it is repairable, if you know a good electrician or a electronics guy or girl that can fix it for you you could try that, I know of a repair shop that you could send it to, if you want the info, let me know. Rick.

Wired Xbox 360 Controller is loose where it connects into the top


You can try using a little bit of Loctite Handyman Glue if the rubber piece is the only thing that is loose. if the wires themselves are loose inside the controller, i would suggest buying a New/Used controller instead opening it up yourself (unless you work on controllers and other small computerized objects)

Wired xbox 360 controller's constantly 'disconnect'


It sounds like it needs replaceing. Sometimes Radio shack has the wireless Xbox360 controllers on sale for 40$ and Gamestop sells used ones for around the same price. Also wireless is much better.

My wireless xbox controller keeps blinking green but won't connect


Have you tried leaving your console OFF first, and then Holding down the CENTER [X} button to turn your console on?

Usually that always works, I usually disconnect the battery clip and reconnect it (to turn it off) when it keeps blinking and does not connect.

Then I hold down the center button on the controller and move the left analog stick around in circles while it's blinking, and it usually recognizes it a lot faster when I do this.

-If the above does not work, disconnect the battery clip on the controller again and put it back in,

-But first (before powering on the controller) press and hold the tiny -sync- button on your xbox (while it's on),
-and then turn on your controller, and hold down the sync button on your controller, and move the anolog stick around while it does this also.

If the above does not solve your problem, I'm sorry, but I tried.

Xbox 360 wireless control conects then disconnects randomly


The solution is VERY simple.

There is nothing wrong with your controller OR your xbox.


The battery indicator found when pressing your xbox logo button is temperamental. It might say 2 bars, or 3 or even full battery but this is not a good indicator of a full battery.

The problem IS low batteries - when the batteries become low the vibration function can cause the controller to disconnect. This is happens because the vibration function uses extra battery power.


So basically... Every time your controller vibrates, it disconnects. This occurs when firing a weapon in most games, grenades in COD, landing heavy tricks in Skate 2, the list goes on, you'll find many complaints from people stating their controller disconnects specifically with these events.


The simple solution, turn off the vibration function when this occurs. It'll never happen to you again ^_^

Thumbs this up when it proves correct for you. People will find the solution quicker that way.
