Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the SYNC ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a XBOX REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

Me and my friends use this very good Console Repair Website.

The other solution would be to send the console off to Sony, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

A few days ago, the batteries in my Rock Band 2 guitar died so I replaced them with new ones. When I tried to turn the guitar back on it wouldn't work. When I hold down the Xbox button all of the...

Yes, it's called dead batteries.

Replace the batteries with new ones, and then just turn it on. It shouldn't be necessary to sync it to the xbox, unless yuo have synced it to another xbox lately.

Mx vs atv alive says activate second controller

I guess it's as easy as pressing A or Start.

But if the controller really isn't connected anyways, you have to:

1: Turn on controller, and hold the sync button ( just to the right of the Left Bumper ).

2: Press the Sync button on the Xbox 360
> Slim version: Sync button is placed just beside the usbports on the front of the xbox.
> Original version: The sync button is placed just beside Memory Slot B ( looks pretty much as the one on the xbox controller.

3: The controller should connect and sync automaticly to your Xbox 360.

I have a brand new controller which came with my new xbox 360 and i have put the batteries in the correct way as instructed but when i press the xbox guide button nothing happens. I have also tried to sync...

The guide button won't work until its synced,you need to push the button on the console to look for controllers then the button on the controller and it will sync it and then it should work fine. If that doesn't work then try hitting the button on the controller first then the one on the console.

Wireless controler won,t connect to consol

I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above of course.

If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.

If your controller works with another xbox and no other controllers work with your xbox than there is a issue with your console.

For issues related to the xbox I would suggest contact xbox directly by calling 1800 my xbox.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

New xbox 360 not reading old 360 wireless controller

It sounds like it needs syncing in. On the controller there is a little button between the LB & RB buttons, when pressed the the green LED ring will light up clockwise.
At the same time press the sync button on the 360, just to the left of the power button, the green LED ring on the 360 will also light up clockwise, after a few seconds both controller and 360 should sync.

Cant sync my wireless guitar to the xbox

Step one: Hold the Xbox button on the controller for 5 seconds
Step two: click the connect button on the xbox.
Step three: Hold the connect button on the controller for 5 seconds.

If they are not broken, this should work. This is the PROPER way to connect ANY wireless controller.

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.

360 wireless controller

Hey tavis,

Try this, make sure if you have any cord controllers, that they are unplugged.

Turn off the console.

Make sure the controller is off too.

Turn on the console, and then press the wireless sync button on the console itself.

Then, press the sync button the controller. This should def work for you.

If it still does not work, it sounds like something could be wrong with the system, since you say it works on a friends.

Is this the first time using a wireless controller on your 360?

Try using your friends wireless controller since it works for his, just to see what it does on yours.
