Having problems with your Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller ?

Wireless Controller not connecting to console.

\015 When I turned on my Xbox 360 with the wireless controller, I found that after it started up, the console would not acquire a connection to the controller. I attempted to resync the controller and console,\015\012 - Click sync button on console.\015\012 - Held and release sync button on controller.\015\012 - The controller and console both had matching spinning lights. \015\012 - The controller and console blinked 6 times.\015\012\015\012Afterward though the console lights went dead, and the 4 controller LEDs continue to blink until the power pack is pulled.\015\012\015\012I have replaced the batteries in one controller, and recharged the pack for the other. I have tried the sync operation many times even right up next to the console.\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015

Hey guys,

I've had the same problem today. The controller wouldn't connect no matter what. The strange thing was I could still turn the console on using the controller, but afterwards it wouldn't do anything.

Now I think I found a solution, at least for my case. All I did was to remove the HDD (that thing on top of the console) and put it back in. Then I started the console again using the controller and it was instantly connected.:)

Now I just hope it stays this way.;)

The guest's "POSSIBLE SOLUTION" post on June 6, 2008 is likely to solve the problem you're describing. Here's a post I made to a similar thread:

If you're using an HDMI connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, it\015\012might be that. When using HDMI, the Xbox won't boot up until it knows\015\012what the TV is capable of displaying. Although the controller will turn\015\012the console on, it won't sync with the console -- and it's not a\015\012controller or console problem, but just a symptom of the fact that the\015\012Xbox won't get to the point where controllers will sync until it can\015\012properly communicate with the TV. I'd recommend turning off the TV and\015\012the Xbox, disconnecting the HDMI cable and re-connecting it after\015\012making sure the contacts are clean. Then turn the Xbox back on first;\015\012you'll likely to see the same behavior. Finally, turn the TV back on.\015\012With it being switched back into HDMI mode, it just might "kick-start"\015\012the Xbox into a good communication link across HDMI. Hope that helps.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
