    XBox360 Wireless Controller - Lights keep flashing after most recent update (2021)


    So yesterday I updated to the most recent Windows build, to fix a BSOD issue I was having while using Chrome. It seems to have fixed that, but now, the two wireless 360 controllers that I have (played while charging in a USB port, since the batteries don't last long anymore), keep flashing all 4 lights, never settling on which one is player 1 (or 2, etc).
    The odd thing is, the controllers still work. If I hit the XBox button, the game bar pops up. I can use them to control games. It's just the lights flashing, which wasn't happening yesterday.

    A rollback is out, since I'd much rather deal with this than constant BSODs, but any ideas?

    Thanks

    :)

    controller help

    hey thanks for the help I tried turning it on manual and the controller sync but after that it won't sync anymore and the lights keep on flashing on the controller. when I try to go sync it with the 360 but the 360 doesn't pick it up and the lights still
    flash on the controller. what does this also mean?

    Lights on 360 Wireless Controller keep flashing

    Could be from interference. I would try a different brand of batteries though. Sometimes the controller just doesn't sit well with what type of batteries you're using.

    Hi there,

    can you replace the batteries for that controller, to see if that makes any difference.

    Also try powering the console off, disconnect the power supply from the wall and console and leave it like that for at least 60 seconds. After that connect the power supply to the console and the wall socket and power the console on again.

    Let us know the results

    Lights on 360 Wireless Controller keep flashing

    Ive seen this issue before, its generally a hit and miss fix, but if you have a second console or have a friend that can let you sync it to theirs first to rule out the console being at fault, if it does the same on the second console, then its the controller
    that's faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced

    Hello.

    If you have two controllers synk the one which works fine up 1st, and then synk the one you're having trouble with as controller 2. If no joy try synking up with a 2nd console. In this way you'll change the RF signal in the controller and then retry the
    controller with your console again.

    Hope you get it working again.
