    Controller not staying synced.


    Why does my controller not stay synced to Xbox. Every other day I have to re-sync my controller. I have brand new batteries in controller even swapped out for new batteries. Still does same thing. Xbox is only a couple months old.

    :)

  2. Controller losing connection

    If the controller is having an issue staying synced, it could be the controller itself. The Kinect's IR is also able to sync the controller and if it is covered this may prevent the controller from re-syncing itself through the Kinect. If it happens when
    the Kinect is covered I would make sure to leave it uncovered and see if that helps. My other suggestion would be to see if it does it with another working controller or not as well.

    Controller Not Synced After Update

    Xbox Support on Twitter helped me on this one.

    I had to do a complete power down which is holding the power button on the the system for 5 seconds till it shuts off. Then using the button on the system to power it back on. Both wheel and controller work perfect now.

    controller won't sync with console (already tried new batteries) all lights flashing

    these are Microsoft controllers and I have been through the sync process with them and they will occasionally sync for a minute or two but not stay synced.

    Xbox 1 controller randomly stops working.

    Hi Yonatan, with both the console and controller on hit hold the sync buttons on both the controller and the console at the same time until it starts to cycle. It should be re synced after that and will hopefully stay connected.

    Controllers losing sync and won’t stay synced.

    I have the same problem when I turn on the Xbox first and then the controller, however I can still turn on the Xbox using the controller and if I do it this way this problem doesn't happen.

    Have you updated the controller firmware yet?

    Controllers losing sync and won’t stay synced.

    Thank you for the response. I’ve tried with multiple controllers though which makes me believe the issue isn’t with them. I will continue troubleshooting on my own and try to figure out why i suppose.

    Controllers losing sync and won’t stay synced.

    you may have defective controllers i have had this issue in the past as well mine worked fine plugged in but if it was wireless it would keep saying controller not connected or it could also be a defect with the xbox which is normal sometimes through the
    manufactuar i myself had to buy a new system my problem got fixed after doing so but on another note have you tried contacting microsoft via phone you may be able to get the problem fixed faster than you think
