    Hi Everyone,

    I have run into an issue with my old 360. I am unable to wirelessly sync either of my controllers. If I plug either of them in with the play and charge cable, it sometimes takes overnight before the controller will sync. It is not a problem with the controllers themselves as they will sync without issue to my cousin's 360.

    I have just replaced the RF board as I have seen mentioned online but that had no effect. If anyone as any other ideas or suggestions, I would love to hear them. Thanks very much for the time and have a great afternoon!

    Respectfully,
    George D.

    Be better to take it to a shop or someone who works on them or you'll end up buying more parts in the hope one works & possibly waste more money

    There is a small trick that may work .As you have replaced the RF board its a difficult one to pin down.

    I synced one this morning, this how I did it 1) switch xbox on
    2) power up controller
    3) press sync button on controller (a small button near the port for a cable)
    4) then press the sync button on the xbox itself it's just below the right hand side of the disc tray
    5) I also pressed power button on controller but I don't know if this is necessary, let us know how you get on.

    sounds like the RF module is bad. Just get a new box
