    How to Sync a Wireless Controller

    The following guide will help you connect any extra controllers purchased to your console. Please note the controller that came with your Xbox One is already synced. Conveniently there are now three different ways to sync a controller, which are:

    • Using the console’s connect button
    • Using Kinect
    • Using a USB to micro-USB cable.

    Method One: Connect Button​

    Let’s start with the first and most important step, install batteries into the controller. Next, turn on the controller by pressing the Xbox button on the front of the controller.

    If the controller is not synced then you will see the light on the Xbox button will pulsate, if it is already synced then it will display a solid light.

    Next press the sync button on your console; it is located on the left side of the console, right next to the disc drive.

    Immediately afterwards press the sync button on the controller. It is a small round button on the top of the controller, near the mini usb port.

    Once the controller syncs with the console the light on the controller will flash a few times before switching to a solid state.


    Method Two: Kinect ​


    First lets make sure the console and controller are both powered on.

    Press the sync button on the top of the controller and wait for the light on the controller to pulse. Aim the controller towards the Kinect and make sure the LEDs on the controller ARE FLASHING IN THE DIRECTION OF THE KINECT.

    Once the Xbox light on the controller stops pulsating and goes solid, your controller has successfully been synced with your console.


    Method Three: USB Cable​

    Using a micro usb connection or the play & charge kit, connect the controller to the console. This will automatically sync the controller (note the console must be powered on first.). This will also turn your wirelesses controller into a wired controller, meaning no battery would be necessary.

    I can't connect my second controller.

    You have to sync your second controller, via the Xbox One's sync button on the left, and the controller's sync button on the top.

    Hopefully this helps! Here or Hard Reset should work (hold power button for 10secs then reboot after
    allowing it to be off for atleast 30secs)

    Xbox one Sync button

    I'm currently having the same issue with my lucidsound LS35X headset and Xbox One X. I posted a similar question yesterday but had no reply. I'm curious if there is a way that pairing can be done via software/app instead of the front button.
