I think beginning this threview may be pointmuch less and I am doomed to sfinish off for the coffin, yet right here it is simply in case…

I have the right to revolve on the 360 via the wiremuch less controllers yet after that allude, the 360 will not sync up through them. The console is about a year and a fifty percent old, 3 controllers are wireless in between six months and a year and also a fifty percent old, all have actually fresh batteries/battery packs.

You are watching: Why is my controller not connecting to my xbox 360?

I’ve tried relocating the 360 away from the giant steel heating system, tried miscellaneous techniques of syncing (pushing 360 switch first, pressing controller switch initially, pressing at the same time), have rerelocated and also relinked the drive (as said on one more nlinux.org), and have actually tried disconnecting and also reconnecting the power supply (as argued by xbox FAQ).

Am I missing anything? Should I just provide up and also go cry around weeks/months without Peggle? Why do the consingle gods hate me? This is Xbox #3 already ;(

Do you have actually a charge and also play kit? I’ve had troubles via certain controls acting up in this method and doing a direct USB connect through the charge and play kit has actually always managed to sync them up ‘the difficult way’ after which they would work-related fine wirelessly.

IIRC, the Play and also Charge kits don’t actually carry out anypoint however charge the battery. Even when the wire is connected, the controller is still communicating wirelessly through the 360. It couldn’t hurt to attempt, though.

That can’t be appropriate. I usage the play and also charge kit, and also if I plug my controller right into one more console, it becomes synced to that consingle.

A trouble I periodically obtain is that as soon as trying to turn the controller on, the ring briefly flashes and then nopoint happens, yet if I plug in the play and charge kit it works fine. My brother-in-law seems to have the very same problem.

I’d have to double-inspect, however I’m pretty certain I have actually this appropriate. I remember bereason as soon as I initially got my 360 and the Play and also Charge kit, the rechargable battery it came via was completely discharged. I assumed that if I plugged the cable in, I’d have the ability to play ideal amethod, yet this wasn’t the situation. Then I read in the hand-operated that bereason the controller still connected wirelessly, it necessary a minimum charge. This is also why you can’t usage a Play and also Charge cable to connect a wireless 360 controller to a COMPUTER.

That shelp, you might be correct that the cable can be doing somepoint to the syncing, yet I’m not sure.

From ProdctWiki, a completely trust-worthy resource, I’m sure

When the controller is charging via the cable, the user is able to still play games. However, the controller is not acting as a wired cable, but instead there is simply enough power overtop of the charging that enables the wiremuch less functionality to occupational. Unfortunately, the play and charge kit does not allow wireless controllers to be compatible via PCs.
