When you get a new Xbox 360, or you get a new controller for it, it’s hard to remember how to syn the controller to a new or different console. I know I do it so rarely that I have to pause and think about the process. Generally speaking, though, it’s not too hard. Here’s how you can do it:
- Turn on your Xbox 360.
- Turn on the controller by pressing the Guide Button (Xbox Logo button in center of controller – hold until it lights up).
- Press the controller sync button on the console (a small button on the front of the console, it blends in, but it’s near the power button – pictured above!).
- Press the small controller sync button on the controller itself.
As you might expect, Microsoft has a helpful guide with additional pictures on their website: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/accessories/connecting-game-controllers – helpful as always!
