The Lips Mic Doesn't Work on My Xbox

The Lips game for the Xbox 360 allows you to sing into a wireless microphone to music in the game. Before you can use the Lips microphone with your game console, you will need to sync the microphone to the Xbox 360. You must also ensure that your microphone has batteries with a strong enough charge to power the controller for the wireless game.

Insert two new AA batteries into the microphone if the old batteries have lost charge or need to be replaced.

Turn on your Xbox 360 console and start the Lips game.

Turn the microphone upside down and hold the power button on the controller for three seconds, until the microphone lights flash.

Hold the power button on the microphone again for three seconds until the lights flash quickly.

Press and hold the "Connect" button on the Xbox console for one second. The lights around the console's power button will flash and spin. When the lights stop flashing on the microphone, the microphone is synced to the console, allowing you to play the Lips game.

Repeat the steps if you need to sync more microphones to your Xbox console.
