So I just received a refurbished 360 that I bought, and had flashed by someone else, but I cannot for the life of me get either of my wireless controllers to connect to it.
I power on either of the controller, then the system, then hold down the sync buttons on both the system and the controller until both of their green lights start spinning. But they keep spinning, then eventually stop, and just start flashing.
I went out and bought a Play & Charge kit, as I'd heard that can help them sync, but it didn't help at all. I then tried a wired controller, and it works fine, but I really want to use my wireless controller.
Any help? Does this mean something's gone bad on the 360?
It's possible the wireless comms chip isn't responding (on the ring of light board). Make sure it's plugged in correctly and/or there are no obtrusions stopping it from being connected properly.
You don't need to hold down the sync buttons - pressing the one on the 360 and pressing the one on your controller should be enough.
