Your controller is most likely exhibiting a hardware failure. Taking apart the device voids your warranty. When a button does not work anymore, it is safe to say that you will need to buy a new controller.

The Logitech Chillstream Gamepad is only $20 and works in the same fashion as the XBOX 360 Controller (uses the same xb360 XInput controller driver too!)

Give that a look.

    Best way to fix it is to put a NO switch on 1st (top if bottom of controller facing ou) and 2nd. Lose analog function but it works great. More than likely it is just a spring or assembly of the trigger you mashed to hard. Controller probably works great

Simple as a worn out part. The right trigger is the default fire button for most, if not all, first person shooters. The trigger has a button behind it that needs replacing. Get an old controller and take either the R or L trigger button off the board. Take the right button off your controller and do a simple swap. Need soldering skills or know somebody who does. BTW the most common part that wears out is the R analog stick. Sticks top right for some reason and your character starts drifting or moving on its own, quite irritating really.

Xbox 360 controller right trigger always activates

There are a couple things you should try before buying a new controller. First, make sure that when you start your pc or xbox 360 that you are not pressing the trigger, as this can make it stick while it is on. Next, you can try to plug in/turn on the controller and then plug out/turn off the controller a few times in a row, this may work also. If neither of those work, then you could still try with a different console or pc, and if the problem persists to those, I would think about buying a new controller.

My xbox 360 wired controller's right trigger is always activating without it being pressed

If the potentiometer for the trigger is bad or is not making good contact with the circuit board, say through a poor solder connection, this could be your problem. If the controller isn't getting any signal from the electronic trigger component it sees that as a pressed trigger and becomes grenade happy. This has happened to me.

The screen is enlarged after watching a movie how do we fix it?

Hi melissami133



With the new Xbox 360 interface, the how-to below is not working anymore! You can do the following to reset your console:
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  • 1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  • 2. Turn the console off.
  • 3. Turn the console on.
  • Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
  • 4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.

Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Xbox 360 controller wont connect

Try replacing the batteries. I think you would have tried that but go ahead and try again. If you are new with 360s try to sinc the controller with the 360. Hope that all works.

dont try tearing your controller apart to try to get it to work. If it doesnt work take it back to the store you got it from and try to get your money back.

If all of that doesnt work............. buy a new controller.

Reboot your 360 and just sit the controller down till it is done rebooting. If you even brush a button during the booting it can do crazy things.

you have to press the connection buttons, one on the controller and one on the xbox 360, the one on the controller is located on top by the triggers next to the cartridge insert port right by the left button, it has 3 wavy lines next to it, when you press it, the controller will light up and go in circles. After that quickly press the button on the xbox 360 located under memory unit A, to the left of the disc eject, then the xbox 360 lights will go in a circle then automatically connect. If it doesnt work at first, try it again, but quicker.
