Why is my Xbox 360 PC wireless controller stuck on player 2?

my Xbox 360 PC wireless controller is stuck on player 2, sometimes player 3. It used to be on player 1 , but now I cant use it, I checked drivers, removed some usb drivers, checked device and printers... but still it displays the player 2 light. :(

I solved the same issue, at least for me. If you have any game streaming service (Such as Kinoi Streamer or the like) Remove it!!! That auto assigns itself to player 1, thus defaulting your controller to player 2! I Uninstalled it, and my controller defaulted to player 1 again!

Carlos Daniel, I'd start by trying to resync the controller. Check on here Should it still do this after, try a different controller. This will determine if the controller is sending wrong signals or the receiver board is failing. some of it will depend on which version Windows you are using.

I guess another wire controller is connected to your PC. It is defined as player 1. That's why your controller stuck on player 2.
