Hi there, the only thing I can think of is in what order are you pressing the sync buttons. According to this link it's the console first then the controller, but you can also try vice versa: support.xbox.com/.../connecting-game-controllers

Also please see the troubleshooting steps here and see if you have any luck with those: support.xbox.com/.../wireless-controller-disconnects-frequently-or-cannot-connect

Hi there,

one thing to try, if your xbox console is always connected to power, is to disconnect the console from the wallsocket for at least 60 seconds and then reconnect it again. This sometimes fixes an issue like this.
