Theres a reset/wireless search? button on the console and on the controller.  When mine doesn't connect, I first push the button on the console, you'll notice the 4 green lights flashing, then press the corresponding button on the controller (at the front of controller) and wait patiently... they should connect.  Actually, I think that may be what it says to do in the booklet.  Anyway, thats what works for me.
