Question about Activision Video Game Consoles & Games
Posted by Anonymous on
Turn on the X-Box, turn on the controller, press the "Find" button on the X-Box, It's the 3/8" ROUND button on the consol. Press the find button on the controller. It's the 1/8" round button next to the LB button.

If you're using an HDMI connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, it might be that. When using HDMI, the Xbox won't boot up until it knows what the TV is capable of displaying. Although the controller will turn the console on, it won't sync with the console -- and it's not a controller or console problem, but just a symptom of the fact that the Xbox won't get to the point where controllers will sync until it can properly communicate with the TV. I'd recommend turning off the TV and the Xbox, disconnecting the HDMI cable and re-connecting it after making sure the contacts are clean. Then turn the Xbox back on first; you'll likely to see the same behavior. Finally, turn the TV back on. With it being switched back into HDMI mode, it just might "kick-start" the Xbox into a good communication link across HDMI. Hope that helps.

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.

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.

Maybe there was a problem with the system before you got it and that's why it was sold on ebay. If the console is still under warranty, you can send it to microsoft for repairs. If it's not under warranty you will have to pay a $140 fee to have them repair it.
