    Controllers not syncing to console.


    Hi guys, i have just purchased an old xbox 360. i got some used controls on ebay. now my problem is that i cannot get the controllers to sync to the console. i have tried using the sync buttons on the units, but again wont sync. i do not have the usb recharge cable to try that way as i have purchased some usb recharging batteries. the lights on the console and controller seam to be doing their thing when sync buttons are pressed but when they stop circling, they flash back to what it was doing before sync buttons were pressed. hope this is enough info for someone to give a reasonable answer to my sync problems. thanks in advance.

    :)

    turn on console

    Hey there Ashford! Is your controller wireless? If so, your controller may not be synced properly with the console anymore. Try turning the console on with the physical button, then try syncing your controller by pressing the sync button on the console and
    controller. Once they sync up again, turn your console off and try turning it on with the controller. Let me know the result of this, thanks!

    Controller Problems

    Have you tried syncing the controller to the console? Hold the sync button on the front of the controller and the sync button on the console (on the left side just before the usb) until the light on the controller syncs.

    If that doesn't work then try heading over to Settings>System and update the controller to see if that helps.

    Xbox controller won’t stay on longer then 3-5 seconds

    While the controller is flashing, press the sync button on both the controller and console to re-sync the connection. Try this while the controller is wired to the console with a USB cord.

    Halo 4 console and Sync issues.

    Hi, you are pressing the sync button on the console and then the sync button on the controller? What happens when you try to sync the controller?

    My New Xbox 360 Wireless Controller not connecting?

    Try re-syncing the controller to see if that helps.

    Press the sync button on the front of the controller and the sync button on the console to see if it will reconnect.
