Weird pad syncing problem


Active Member
While playing with a wireless pad the light that indicates player 1 on the 360 keeps flicking two the player 2 light. The pad keeps working but the light flicks between them.

When I plug a wired one into 2 at the same time, the third light keeps flicking on.

As I say, it is still working, it's just the light. Anyone else had a similar problem??(seems to stop when I re-sync the pad, but it keeps happening on the next session)

I had that only last week. I was using wirelss controller 1, but section two was lit up on the console. I re-synced it and since then it seems to be alright. I was a bit concerened though as I don't know what caused it, it's never done that before.

Mine does this all the time and so does my pals and it is quite a common thing it just means the tilt switch is not working correctly and cant tell whether it is horizontal or vertical.
