If the ring of light keeps blinking, it means that the remote controller was not connected to a receiver which is the XBox 360 console. Try to press the connect button on the console and the wireless controller to sync them together.

My xbox controller is fully charged and it wont connect to the xbox. If switched the batteries and everything. The lights just keep blinking, slow then fast.

Next to the button that you use to remove the batteries there is a button that you must hold to sync it to the xbox. You have to also hold the sync button on the xbox which is near the usb ports in the front or if you have a older xbox near the memory slot b slot.

I cant get my madcatz ps3 controller to turn on. i just purchased it and threw out the intructions by mistake. I plugged in the usb key and get the controller to turn on

If it is wireless you have to either insert some batteries or charge it by USB.

Usually MadCatz controllers have a button to turn them on or just keep the Home button pressed until you see some light on it.

The USB dongle should be blinking and after you turn on the controller it should pair with it and stop blinking.

Hope it helps...

I just got a refurbished xbox 360 elite and when i turn the wireless controller on it doesn't connect. It just keeps blinking. How do i get it to connect?

To begin, turn on your xbox 360. On the top of the wireless controller, to the right of the LB button there is a small white button. Hold this, and the lights near the xbox button will spin in a circle. On the front of your xbox 360, there is a button to right of the memory card slot. Press this button and the lights on the front of the xbox will spin. After a few seconds, the controller should synch with the xbox. If this does not work, make sure that the lights are spinning in circles at the same time.

Please let me know if you need any more help

Controller wont hook up with console ?

Is this a new controller?
Are the batteries new/recharged?

This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both

Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!

Step 1 | Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.

Step 2 | Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.

Step 3 | On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.

Step 4 | On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.

Step 5 | After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Light indicator on console
Green light in the center- power is on
Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected
Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller

Light indicator on wireless controllers
No lights - no batteries
Green steady light on one quadrant - connected
Blinking green lights - its either its ready to connect or the batteries are dying

*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries
*Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries
*If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.

If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement.
If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.

*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.

Keeps on blinking

you need to be a little more clear. if its a wireless controller and it DIDNT work while it was blinkin the solution is VERY easy. all you have to do is sync it with your xbox. you can sync it by pressing the button next to the memory card slots (on the console) then pressing the button on the top left of the controller (next to the trigger the xbox should read the controll and you should be fine.

Xbox 360 Wireless controller wont turn on

Right, just keep plugging in the charger into the controller until the light stays red, the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice for it's built in 'memory' to be clued in as to how much power is really in and will then start charging. This is usually caused by leaving your controller unused for a while usually days or so at room temperature after fully charging it in your xbox (i.e. the battery memory 'thinks' it's full and tells the xbox as much when really it's empty)

Wireless Les Paul guitar light keeps flashing after I sync to 360

I had the excact same problem with a Microsoft wireless controller. It just showed it synced fine and the controller dropper off the rig right after, keeping blinking idly as always when unconnected.

Solution: When you power the console on with the X button on the controller, try pressing the connect button on the controller then, apparently the console looks for controllers when it's just opening the user interface. Had to try it twice but it synced fine just as I was giving up hope, and has been working ever since!
