Having problems with your Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller ?

Wireless controller issue

\015 Recently my 360 controller is unable to turn on. I've tried many different battery packs, but they don't work, and I know the battery packs (rechargeable or otherwise) are fine because they work in other controllers.Normally I'd declare the controller dead and buried, but I've found when I connect a play and charge cord to the controller and to my console, it will turn on. But it will only turn on. It can't sync with the console and it also doesn't charge whatever battery happens to be connected at the time.Any ideas? Is the controller a goner?\015

Answers :

The fact that the controller is not syncing to your console even when connected via the Play and Charge cable leads me to believe that your controller is more or less "a goner". The wireless controllers should automatically sync with the console when plugged in via the cable, so since yours doesn't sync I would guess there is something wrong with the IC chip inside and somehow something got corrupted.

\015\012Out of curiosity, when you plug in the cable how can you tell the controller is on if it doesn't sync? Do the lights continuously spin around in a circle? Do they just flash? Does quadrant 1 light up like normal but pressing buttons on the controller doesn't do anything?
