    is your controller responding at all? any lights?

    you can start a sync by unplugging and plugging in the battery pack, give that a try, and also try the sync button on the xbox (its very close to the power button, and its the same as the sync button on the oem controllers)

Sounds like the sync button is probably stuck. You should tap it a few times with something pokey like a pin and see if that helps, if not the contact inside broke off and the easiest thing would be to replace it.

MY CONTROLLER WONT CNNCT TO MY XBOX EVEN WEN I SYNC IT . ITS BRAND NEW.

You might have to replace the batteries in the controller, as if the battery life is low the controller will have issues syncing to the xbox 360. Just in cause, To sync the controller to the xbox 360, you must turn on the controller using the xbox guide button and then press the Wireless Sync button right next to the Controller Charging Port. Then you must press the sync button on the xbox 360. You must do this semi-quickly, or the sync process will not complete.
Lastly, You also might have a faulty controller, I suggest you go back to the store you got it from and see if they will replace the faulty controller.

How to sync your Xbox 360 wireless controller

I have come across a few questions asking why a wireless controller is on but not connected, or why it is on and no corresponding green lights were on, etc.. So here it is: DRAGONF1R3 REPAIRS' GUIDE TO SYNC YOUR XBOX 360 CONTROLLER TO IT'S CONSOLE


Quite a title I know, but the actual guide is very simple.

Step 1: Power on your Xbox 360 console. In this guide I'm assuming everyone already has their console hooked up, if not, contact me.

Step 2: Power on Xbox 360 Controller. Make sure it has a battery pack that has correctly place and working batteries or charged re-chargeable battery pack.

Step 3: Locate the small circular sync button on your controller. It is near where your controller can be plugged in (between the LB and RB).

Step 4: Locate the small circular sync button on your Xbox 360 console. It is next to Memory Unit slot 2.

Step 5: Press and hold the controller sync button until the green power lights start spinning.

Step 6: While your controller lights are still spinning press and hold the console sync button. The console's lights should spin also, then flash, and finally show the player slot light on both the console and the controller.

Viola! You've synced your wireless controller! You can sync up to four controllers.
Also, you can use this guide to sync to different Xbox 360 consoles. So you can bring only your controller to your friend's house.

Note: If you sync your controller to another console, you will have to re-sync it to your own afterwords.

My Xbox 360 wont sync any of my wireless controllers and the powe

if your wireless controllers wont sync to your xbox, it could be one of 2 things.

assuming your batteries are fully charged, and that you're using a certified xbox controller, it could be that the controller itself. it is really rare that the wireless receiver inside the xbox itself, goes out, but soemtimes, it happens.

the easiest thing or you to do would be to either pick up an after market controller, or another certified controller, and see if they'll work. if you try other controllers, and they STILL dont work, verify that your system settings are correct, or are set to default, and make sure that your xbox isnt sitting close to something that could be interfering with the signal....like a wireless router for example

if this doesnt work, then it's a problem with the xbox, and you should send it back to the service repair center.

The Sync button wont make the drum light spin

I have the same problem. On my xbox, I traced the problem all the way to a poor solder connection under U2C1. This is also the cause of a more cosmetic issue with my console where the console does not know its orientation.

All is not lost though. You can force the console to sync using a play and charge cable. I bought one from Best Buy today for $15 and was able to get my wireless remote to sync instantly. The connection was maintained after I unplugged the cable.

Xbox wont sync with my wireless contorller

Have you ever synced one of these controllers before?

Hold the controller in your hand as if you were playing a game. Next flip the controller up so that the buttons on it, are facing you.

There is a small white button that you will see. Power your xbox up and after you get to your main menu press the sync button located about 2 inches to the left of your main power button on your console.

Press the described button on the console and then the described button on your controller. The two should sync together perfectly fine.

Xbox 360 sync problem - controllers will not connect

maybe the only way is take it a part and see if the sync button is not broken some how. therefore i advise you to buy a new controller maybe even a used 1 if you dont want to spend more than $20.

Xbox 360 wireless controller not connecting.

it sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.
