Question about Microsoft MS Xbox 360 Common Controller (DHC8G00004)

1 Answer

XBox control My xbox control on gears of war, keeps on "spinning". When i press the B button, it stops, and the left stick does not work for me to walk. On any car game, I only get the side view, but if i press B i get the normal view from the back. I've tried to reconnecting the control, but nothing. I also put new batteries. Could something be stuck in the remote? I do not have the right tools to open it. Please help. Thanks

    Is it spinning in-game, or is the actual stick on the controller "spinning?" If it is the stick spinning, than it is most likely broken.

The lights keep blinking but nothing is happening. It wont connect to the console. What should I do?

It's possible the xbox 360 controller isn't connected to the xbox 360. Turn the xbox 360 on by pressing the power button, and wait until it reaches the dash board. Then press the controller syncing button on the xbox 360 itself and wait until the xbox 360's ring lights start to spin around. Then press and hold the synch button on the controller (located near the charge port) and the controller should synch up with the xbox 360.

The second controller won't work with my xbox360 so that 2 of us can play

Your second controller is probably not synchronized with the xbox. there is a small white button on the top of the controller. Press and hold it until the lights on the xbox guide button starts to glow and spin (only works if the controller is on). Then press and hold a small white button located on your xbox located to the left of the xbox power button, it will light up and do the same. The xbox and the controller will find each other.

Note that I am talking about the old white version of the xbox. For the new xbox slim you press the small black button next to the USB ports on the front.

Hope this helps : )

Cant get controllers to connect to the x-box

Under the second memory stick port is a little buttton, when you press that button the green led of the xbox should be spinning. When it is press the same button located on the top of the controller of the Xbox until it starts spinning. At that point they should both pair up.

My gow 2 keeps freezing

If your Gears of war 2 is freezing there is a couple things to try, first try to look in your saved games for a currupt file. if there is no currupt file you can also clear the cache

  1. Reattach the Xbox Hard Drive.
  2. Locate the System section of the Xbox 360 Dashboard.
  3. Select Memory, and then press the Y button to view the device options screen.
  4. On the Xbox 360 Controller, press the following items in this sequence:
    • X button
    • X button
    • Left bumper
    • Right bumper
    • X button
    • X button
  5. When you are prompted to confirm system maintenance, press the A button to select Yes.
if that does not work. check yoru disc for scratches. it could be the disc. Maybe try the disc in another console. If you are still having issue's after all of that call in to support or go to for more trouble shooting steps

good luck

Gears of War 2 Loads but says "disk unredable."

You have a problem with your Xbox. 3 Game discs arent all faulty.
Call a service agent and tell them your Xbox cannot read discs.
