Xbox 360 wireless controllers not working

I think beginning this thread may be pointless and also I am doomed to sfinish off for the coffin, however here it is just in case…

I deserve to turn on the 360 with the wireless controllers however after that allude, the 360 will certainly not sync up with them. The console is about a year and also a half old, 3 controllers are wireless in between six months and a year and a half old, all have actually fresh batteries/battery packs.

I’ve tried moving the 360 ameans from the gigantic metal furnace, tried miscellaneous methods of syncing (pressing 360 button initially, pressing controller button first, pressing at the exact same time), have actually removed and also relinked the drive (as argued on one more vivaworldcup.info), and have actually tried disconnecting and also reconnecting the power supply (as suggested by xbox FAQ).

Am I absent anything? Should I simply offer up and also go cry around weeks/months without Peggle? Why carry out the consingle gods hate me? This is Xbox #3 already ;(

Do you have a charge and also play kit? I’ve had troubles through particular controls acting up in this method and doing a direct USB affix by means of the charge and play kit has actually always controlled to sync them up ‘the hard way’ after which they would certainly occupational fine wirelessly.

IIRC, the Play and also Charge kits don’t actually do anypoint however charge the battery. Even as soon as the wire is connected, the controller is still interacting wirelessly through the 360. It couldn’t hurt to try, though.

That can’t be ideal. I usage the play and also charge kit, and also if I plug my controller right into one more console, it becomes synced to that consingle.

A trouble I sometimes obtain is that as soon as trying to turn the controller on, the ring briefly flashes and then nothing happens, but if I plug in the play and also charge kit it works fine. My brother-in-law appears to have actually the very same difficulty.

That can’t be best. I use the play and charge kit, and if I plug my controller right into another consingle, it becomes synced to that console.

A trouble I sometimes get is that when trying to rotate the controller on, the ring briefly flashes and also then nothing happens, however if I plug in the play and charge kit it functions fine. My brother-in-regulation seems to have actually the same difficulty.

I’d need to double-examine, however I’m pretty sure I have this ideal. I remember bereason as soon as I initially obtained my 360 and also the Play and Charge kit, the rechargable battery it came with was totally discharged. I assumed that if I plugged the cable in, I’d have the ability to play right amethod, however this wasn’t the case. Then I read in the hand-operated that bereason the controller still connected wirelessly, it needed a minimum charge. This is additionally why you can’t use a Play and Charge cable to affix a wiremuch less 360 controller to a COMPUTER.

That shelp, you could be correct that the cable can be doing somepoint to the syncing, but I’m not certain.

From ProdctWiki, a completely trust-worthy resource, I’m sure

When the controller is charging with the cable, the user is able to still play games. However before, the controller is not acting as a wired cable, but instead tbelow is just enough power overpeak of the charging that allows the wireless usability to work. Unfortunately, the play and also charge kit does not allow wireless controllers to be compatible with PCs.
