Having problems with your Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller ?
Xbox 360 controller green light unusual
\015 So apparently my controller sat in water over night when a cup spilled over. At first the controller didn't work at all, but now it turns on but the green lights blink faster than normal and go double time if i press the "sync with xbox" button. Is there any way I can use my controller again?\015
If you or someone you know are mechanically inclined, you can take it apart and clean EVERYTHING with rubbing alcohol and some cotton swabs. Use canned air to blow the directional controls out. They are at the base of the joysticks. A tiny amount of water inside these will create all kinds of problems. Don't pull anything too hard. There are some thin connectors inside.
The water may have damaged some of the on board controls, meaning that only some of the buttons may not work. I am affraid to say that this is not reversable.
