    Greetings

    I have an Xbox Series x last night I turned off the Xbox went to bed. When turning it on today it boots up fine. However it will not connect to ANY controller, wired USB, or wireless.

    My controllers all pair with my PC, phone, and other Xboxes. Please advise.

    I have unplugged the Xbox series X from all devices and let sit for over 5 minutes. Plugged back in booted up fine...but no controller will connect.

    I can push the pair on both the Series X and on any controller...but as soon as they pair my controller immediately powers off.

    :)

    Hello dear Gamer, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is Vinicius.

    I am a gamer and independent advisor on the XBOX community platform.

    Hey charlesfisher, how are you today? Hope you're well.

    charlesfisher, try this on your console:

    1. Turn off your Xbox completely by holding the power button for 10 seconds. Unplug it from the wall, wait for 1 minute, and plug it back.

    2. Press and hold the Sync and Eject buttons.

    3. Press the power button, and keep holding the Sync and Eject buttons together.

    4. Keep holding the Sync and Eject buttons, until the troubleshooting menu appears > when you're on the troubleshooting page, try to connect your controller.

    5. Select the option "restore this xbox" and choose keep my games and apps.

    Xbox 360 controller not working with Xbox Cloud Gaming.

    Hi,

    The Xbox 360 wireless controllers can't be turned into wired ones with a Play & Charge. This is because even when wired, 360 wireless controllers remain wireless. The cable only provides power, no data is sent.

    This is also why they don't appear in game controllers but the generic controller does.

    To use a wireless 360 controller on Windows requires a gaming receiver. And the receiver must be for 360 controllers, the official receiver for Xbox One/Series controllers won't work.

    how do you turn on xbox 360 wireless controller

    Hi,

    Powering on Xbox 360 controllers is the same as powering on a Xbox One controller - press the guide button until it flashes green. The guide button is silver on Xbox 360 controllers and white on Xbox One/Series X|S controllers.

    Support guides for Xbox 360 controllers can all be found on the Xbox Support website (https://support.xbox.com) simply by typing ‘Xbox 360 controller’ into the search box, I’ll add them here though.

    And for wired controllers:

    How to replace the batteries in your Xbox 360 Wireless Controller

    For help with a Xbox One/Series X|S controller (I understand you’re enquiring about Xbox 360, but I’ll also include the guides for Xbox One in case needed, and to help others):

    Connect an Xbox Wireless Controller to your console

    Get to know your Xbox One Wireless Controller

    Troubleshoot your Xbox Wireless Controller

    Update your Xbox Wireless Controller

    This applies to both Xbox One/Series X|S and Xbox 360 controllers:

    If the controller light is flashing and doesn’t eventually turn to a solid colour, then this means something is preventing it from connecting/powering on (it’s possible it could be all these factors and reasons so be sure to consider this and verify everything):

    1. You need to replace the batteries.

    2. It’s out of range from your console - try moving closer.

    3. It’s not synced to your specific console - try resyncing it referring to the guides above. The re-sync should be instant but can it take a few seconds.

    4. The console is off (if the controller is synced to your console, then the power supply would be disconnected, as turning on the controller automatically turns on the console).

    Sometimes the light is incorrectly flashing (indicating that it’s resyncing even when it isn’t), although if the controller is working okay, then you can ignore the blinking light - you may want to restart your console if this persists.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Controller won't sync to my xbox

    Using a USB cable to connect-

    Connect your controller using a micro-USB cable (included with all standard Xbox One wireless controllers and the Xbox One Play & Charge Kit). Standard alkaline batteries won’t be used to power the controller functions while you’re using your controller
    as a wired controller.

    If you’re using an Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 or Xbox Adaptive Controller, connect your controller using a USB-C cable (included with both controllers).

    Depending on the type of controller you have, plug the micro-USB or USB-C cable into the power port on the back of the controller then plug the other end of the cable into your Xbox One. More details can be found
    here on connecting your wireless controller to Xbox consoles: https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/hardware-network/controller/connect-a-wireless-controller
