The Xbox 360 is primarily controlled by and through the manipulation of the Xbox 360 wireless game controller. Using the two thumb-sticks, four face buttons, two bumpers and two triggers, you can navigate through the "Dashboard" and play a variety of video games, music and movies. The Xbox 360 wireless controllers are powered by two "AA" batteries that are located inside a battery pack attached to the back of the controller. These batteries often run out of energy with prolonged use and must be changed by disassembling the Xbox 360 controller battery pack.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press down on the tab located on the top of the battery pack. This will cause the battery pack to dislodge from the controller.

  2. 2

    Turn the battery pack upside down, so that the open side with the batteries is facing toward the ground.

  3. 3

    Hit the end of the battery pack facing the ceiling using the hand not holding the battery pack to remove any batteries inside. The battery pack is now ready for you to insert new batteries and reattach it to the controller.

Tips and warnings

  • When inserting new batteries, follow the imprinted positive/negative directions to ensure the batteries are facing the correct way.
