Syncing the controller is a nightmare.

#1Foxx3kPosted 8/17/2014 7:27:45 PM
My controller light just blinks and blinks and blinks. It won't sync with my Xbox.

I can plug it in hard wired and it won't do anything.

I have to keep removing the battery and trying again again and again until it works.

What a nightmare. Why can't it just work. This is ridiculous.

You could have saved time by calling microsoft instead of complaining here

It's obvious that the controller is garbage. 1800-4MYXBOX

Microsoft doesn't really offer any support for their accessories and this is clearly a firmware / software problem anyway.

And problems should be made public regardless.

You do know there is a sync button on the left side of the actual console itself? When I got my XOne the controller synced no problems but when I got my second controller with the Forza 5 bundle I couldn't sync it because I was unaware of the sync button on the actual console itself.

No luck. My controller blinks, I press the button on the Xbox One and the controller stops blinking but there is no input.

The only "solution" I've found is to hard-power down my Xbox One. When I turn it back on, the controller works and is synced until : I unplug the controller, I unplug my headset, or I press the sync button. (If I power it on with the controller wireless, it will work until I plug it in)

It's *very* annoying. Very very very annoying.

Pretty much this. I'd say make sure your controller is on it should blink if unconnected. Then while it's blinking hold the sync button on the left side of the console, following round from the eject button and hold it until it goes solid.

If this doesn't work, ehhh you've got a dud.

Its actually super easy with the Kinect. You just hold the button on the controller and hold it up so the Kinect see's it.
