    Controller Taking a Few Minutes to Sync After Restart - Series X


    I restarted my Series X this morning, because when I clicked to install a game, it wouldn't.

    After my console restarted, my controller wouldn't sync, the X button just kept flashing. I pressed the sync button on my console, and nothing.

    I tried restarting a few more times, and I even unplugged the console, and it still would not sync.

    I found out that if I wait about 3 - 5 minutes, the controller would finally start working, and the sync button on the console would start working, also.

    I put the console into standby mode, then turned it back on with the controller, and it worked. The controller stayed synced.

    But, I restarted the console again, and the controller lost the sync. I had to wait another 5 minutes for it to work again.

    I am in Beta ring, it's happening with all controllers and I am about to report this on the console. I am waiting for my controller to resync lol.

    I have lost sync with my controller before, but not like this.

    Controller won't sync, help!!

    **Update

    EURYNOMR STOLAS's way works, unplug your console for a few minutes, it will restart. I used a USB cable to turn on my controller, this also turned on my console and synced :D

    Certain games not loading

    Adding to the below awesome Ambassador. Are you getting the "This may take a few minutes" message? If so, it's syncing with everything in the cloud. Might also be worth it to restart your router just to make sure there are no internet issues.

    Xbox One Controllers Looses Connection

    I've had my X1 for some 2 years and it does this as well. My solution isn't a hard reset but rather with the controller connected, I go into settings and click restart console. Which at least for a week or two often solves the problem for me.

    When during those times the controller fails to connect, or looses connection, I manually turn the console off (not a hard reset) and after a few minutes back on, then after the console fully boots up I turn the controller back on, which for some odd reason
    then syncs with the console. I then go into settings/restart console and... No worries for weeks on end.

    All discs not working on Xbox One

    I've had recent issues with noise and disc drive not being recognised on my Xbox Series X and the only way I found to stop this issue is to do a Full shutdown of the console and restart.

    Settings>System>General>Power...>Full shutdown.

    Its worthwhile removing power cable from console for a few minutes after you shutdown before you restart.

    Also, eject the disc before you shutdown.

    Xbox series S controller already synced.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    It's normal. My Xbox Series X and Series S came well packaged and I didn't need to hit the bind buttons to sync the controllers.
