    XBox Series X: Controller syncing to console has unexpectedly gone completely unresponsive,...


    I have seen a number of posts of similar nature however what is unique here is the sync button itself works (to get to Bios) but not the blinking or ability to sync any devices. I suspect a Bluetooth or bug. It makes no sense for it to be a hardware repair. I have had similar things happen with PCs over the years with Bluetooth issues and later it returning after an update. I have had this problem for about 5 days. The controller stopped working/syncing randomly when in sleep mode. I had no problem the first two weeks owning the console, this is week 3. I noticed it was no longer synced. The sync button doesn't blink (to re-sync) on the series x console. I tried the steps listed on the forums however this was unique as the sync button must work.

    I have tried the following:

    1. Hard reset, un-plugged all cables, held button down 15 seconds (the usual several times over). Take out batteries, place in new batteries in controller etc.
    2. Making sure Quick Start is off.
    3. Reset settings/wireless
    4. Attempted to boot into BIOS by holding down power and sync button.
    5. I used a USB C power cord and the controller works but isn't recognized when disconnected. ( I wish their were sync options on the menu)
    6. I have also tried taking the batteries out of controller, shut down fully, restart and the sync button nor the controller is recognized.
    7. 2X Factory restore of all settings/games etc.
    8. Synced controller to PC connected to Console to set up as new controller. Same problem continues as it wont sync without the cord and the sync button on the series X still doesn't blink.
    9. Tested Series X controller with my phone and it worked well just like my PC. I can stream to my PC monitor and use the controller wirelessly there. This rules out the controller being the issue. I also updated the controller firmware on PC and the Series X. This did not solve the issue.
    10. I have played around more with the USB C cord and it works great wired but disconnects instantly when disconnected. I attempted the sync button, plug in, plug out. It only will connect when on and plugged in by USB C.

    I have no idea how this happened and what changed within a day in sleep mode.

    Any help would be appreciated, I am truly stumped. It is not worth sending it in for a new console with it possibly taking several months to return ( I am well within return window). I can use USB C and it doesn't bother me much for now. If there are no more ideas I hope the next update somehow fixes this. I joined the insider ring program so hopefully I able able to download a preview update soon.

    Xbox Elite Controller Model 1698

    Hi there!

    Have you gone about re-syncing this controller?

    On the Original XBONE: Press the button on the side of the console's disk tray and the controllers sync button as well and hold the controllers down until it is a steady white light.

    On the S & X, at the bottom of the console the sync button will be there. Please repeat the steps and sync if not already.

    Thanks!

    The Xbox Series X controllers will work on Xbox One consoles, and the Xbox One controllers (including the Elite/Elite V2) will work on Xbox Series X too.

    This is a link to an external site which
    confirms the backwards and forwards compatibility for controllers.
