Well... I'm not sure is this goes here but I'l start with my problem anyway:
I've had the Xbox for a few years now and today ( or for the last week ) I wanted to set it up.
I turn it on everythings fine then I go to play. For some reason the screen keeps saying 'Please reconnect controller port #1'.
It's really annoying becuase for a few minuts it works fine then it says this for a while. It seems like its in a grid and if the controller comes out of the grid it says 'Connect bla bla bla', becuase if we keep it absouletly still, it works!
Please help us becuase I miss the Halo days with my brother.
I had that happen to me too, it turned out to be a loose or bad connection in the spot where the wire connects to the controller. A way you can see if this is happening is play a game and with the controller working wiggle the wire right where it goes in to the controller and see if that brings up that error message. if not go down the wire toward the xbox and showly wiggle the wire till the error comes up. this is what i did and it worked for me, good luck.
No such luck :(.
Please help me people, I know I am sounding like a noob, but please.
You might just try blowing out the controller port on the XBox and on the controller. It might just be that you got some dirt in there.
Also just to be sure its in the xbox itself, try another controller.
I tried all 3 controllers. And of course the controller is plugged in to the xbox.
And I tried blowing it the second it stopped working.
I got some help from people at Lucasforums, they think I should pull the Controller apart, and see if the wires need soldering back.
Well, if you've tried 3 controllers and all have had the problem, I doubt the problem is with the controllers.
Sounds like you left your xbox sitting around too long and it went bust? Maybe it got shaked around and the inside got all messy.
No, it's the controllers becuase first one went broke, then the next, then the last. But other's work fine.
I just need the time to do the soldering thingy, better gt off my butt, then.
