Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller

1 Answer

I got vegitable oil in my xbox 360 wireless controller and it wont turn on now. is it still fixable?

Im pretty sure the vegitable oil entered through the xbox guide button and now it wont even turn on. i know water does not clean oil very well, plus it has to do with electronics and curcuit boards, but is there any way to go about cleaning or fixing it? i havent even tried to open it yet and it happened a couple months ago.

Water is a definite no no
there is a crc contact cleaner on the market that will not affect electronic parts and will clean oil and grease away
to ensure that there is no problems , remove all power sources before using

SOURCE: My xbox 360 wireless button doesn't work????

I had the same problem with my new controller. The trick is to hold the connect button on the console for a few seconds and then hold the connect button on the controller. The main part is to hhhhoooolldddd it until the ring lights up.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Wireless controller wil not sync with xbox 360

turn on the console. let it start up all the way. turn on the controller. on the console to the right side of the two memory card slots is a little button. press and hold it til the green lights start flashing around the power button. there is a little button on top of the controller. when the lights around the power button are flashing, press and hold the button on the top of the controller til the lights around the center button start flashing and then it should sync together

Xbox wont turn on its pluged in and getting power to the unite but wont turn on

What color is lit on the power unit? Is it red, yellow, or green? Are you using a wireless controller to turn it on or the actual button on the XBOX? If you're using the wireless, make sure it's plugged in to the unit and controller. If not, replace batteries in controller and see if that works. If still nothing make sure you have a good connection between the power unit and the XBOX.
