  1. Controller sync issues- need help


    We have an older xbox one and just purchased a new xbox one s. we sync'd all our controllers to the one S but now want to go back and use the older xbox one and can't get even one to sync back. I've tried all the steps recommended on support sites.
    the xbox one also hasnt been used in a while and the initial screen wants an software update... (can't choose start without a working controller). HELP!

    I'm worried that a software update occurred on the controllers with xbox one S that is not backward compatible with the older box?

    I've also unplugged the xbox S completely so they can't see it when trying to pair with the old one.

    Any other suggestions?

    :)

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you are having this problem.

    Have you tried connecting the controller with a USB cable?

    If you have a micro-USB cable or the Xbox One Play & Charge Kit, you can connect your controller by using the micro-USB cable and do without batteries.

    Restarting your console and controller might correct the connection issue.

    Yes, all Xbox One controllers work with all of the Xbox One consoles (Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One All Digital Edition, Xbox One X)

    Hey blackcat103199

    Have you tried downloading the Xbox App on your phone and using that as a controller to update your console?
