Xbox 360 wireless contoller won't sync with game console

\015 Our xbox 360 wireless controller will not sync with the game console. It won't even turn on. We've repalced the batteries, tried to turn it on, pushed the connect button on both the controller and the base and still no green light, no connection.\015

Answers :

If you're using an HDMI connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, it might be that. When using HDMI, the Xbox won't boot up until it knows what the TV is capable of displaying. Although the controller will turn the console on, it won't sync with the console -- and it's not a controller or console problem, but just a symptom of the fact that the Xbox won't get to the point where controllers will sync until it can properly communicate with the TV. I'd recommend turning off the TV and the Xbox, disconnecting the HDMI cable and re-connecting it after making sure the contacts are clean. Then turn the Xbox back on first; you'll likely to see the same behavior. Finally, turn the TV back on. With it being switched back into HDMI mode, it just might "kick-start" the Xbox into a good communication link across HDMI. Hope that helps.
Try pressing the small reset button at the front of your xbox then press the reset button at the back of your contoller hopefully your controller will then work again
