Having problems with your Microsoft MS Xbox 360 Common Controller (DHC8G00004) ?

I have the same problem Xbox controller flashes once then nothing

\015 I know this usually means the batteries are dead so I bought some panasonic batteries swapped the batteries and again same problem (I decided these batteries musn't be powerful enough), I was then given some duracell batteries, decided these must have been old because again same problem. So I went out and spent a small fortune on some Energizer Ultra+ batteries and again same problem. Help, I now have a draw full of batteries! : )\015

Answers :
