Xbox controller trouble

I'm having some issue with my controller.

I try and sync it to my Xbox but my controller won't show light up as player 1, all four lights just keep blinking, I thought my controller wasn't connecting to the Xbox at all, but I can turn on my xbox using the controller so that must mean the controller is connected to the console is some way right?

So even though there obviously connected why can't I get my controller to show player 1?

If you have a wired charging kit for your controller I would say plug your controller into your xbox and this will automatically sync the controller to your xbox. Is this happening with any of your other controllers at all if you have any? It would be helpful to know if it is a single controller issue or a console issue. Thanks!

I just got one, and It still won't sync, I have a wired controller on the way to see if it is the controller.

i have had a problem like this before. on the controller there is supposed to be a small button and on the xbox near the power button there is another button, (not the one to open the disc tray), but another one. press and hold both of them at the same time and your controller will work

Greetings, Jeansybaby! Sorry to hear you're having trouble getting your wireless controller to connect up. If all four lights are currently blinking on your controller and on your console, you might already have four controllers connected to the console. Can you do me a favor and disconnect all of your controllers and try again to connect the one that you are currently unable to connect? If you need instructions on how to do this, please read the "Disconnect all controllers and headsets" section of this page: support.xbox.com/.../wireless-controller-disconnects-frequently-or-cannot-connect

Let me know if this helps! I'm here if you have any further questions.

And if for reasons beyond my control, I don't have access to these supposed connected controllers?

I fixed It, I removed the plastic power button covering the RF board and now it syncs every time.
