Xbox 360 wired control pad won't work

\015 It was working fine, and now the controller has two green lights showing opposite each other on the central X button, it is an official control pad. The lights still show even when the console is powered off (but plugged into the mains) but when the console is turned on the controller will not let me do anything at all... any help would be greatly apreciated!\015

Answers :

Possible fix, make sure your contacts are clean, and your cable is not damaged. Obviously the 5v lines are connecting, but no data is getting through. I reccomend using a q-tip to get any grime off, but you may need rubbing alchohol (90% reccomended because it dries cleaner). Clean off the connections on the xbox and the controller. If it still doesnt work, list any extras you have plugged into your controller, and the estimated time you bought the controller.

If all else fails, I've just got a great deal on a MadCatz xbox 360 controller ($25) and its fully functional, minus the controller faceplates if thats your cup-o-tea.
