The receiver looks exactly like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Official-Wireless-Gaming-Receiver-Windows/dp/B000MGVAAQ
When I plug it, the slit-like LED light does not turn on.
When I turn my Xbox 360 wireless controller on, it blinks normally, and then I press that synchronization button, it blinks in a circular way. So I guess the controller is great, but it's just that the receiver that's not turning on.
This is a fresh Windows 10 installation.
- Opened the case, and tested the USB cable for continuity, and the USB cable is perfectly functional.
- But, then, I thought, maybe the connector pins are not good enough for the USB socket in my PC, so I butchered it, replaced its head with a new one (new pins).
Still fails. No LED turns on when I plug the thing in.
I guess now there is something failing in the circuitry of this receiver.
The circuitry is too small. I cannot replace it. So VERY UNFORTUNATELY looks that I need to buy a new one :/.. *MEGASIGH*.
