Having problems with your Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller ?

My new *WIRED* Xbox 360 Controller just blinks!!! *HELP*

\015 Well I got the Xbox 360 Go Pro this X-Mas. I got one controller for me that was *WIRELESS* and it works fine. When I bought a new controller that was *WIRED* I hooked it up and it didn't work. I found out a wireless controller does have a sync button on it, but the wired controller doesn't. It's new, and it came with no batteries. I need help fast, cause I'm gonna return it tomorrow and I want the X button in the middle of the *WIRED* controller to stop blinking and sync in. I tried syncing the 360 to find the controllers that were connected to it and all it connected to was the wireless one. I don't want to spend my money, or my parents on more junk, and it still won't work. Please give me an answer!!!\015

Wireless:Mostlikey a battery issue or sync issue..
Wired:mostlikey a bad cable..
Wireless with cable:mostlikey a battery or sync issue or cable..

Unknown fact. Controller wires are ment to fail as to make more profits.. How you might ask.. if you have a old wire try stripping off the plastic and the fibermesh wire protecting that four wires are presnt a white and green wires which are for sync and control, and black and red for + and - power imput/output for charging/powering the controler.. What microsoft dosent want you to know is the black and red wires they make 2cm shorter then the green and white.(Note: This has been proven through over 45 wire checks over the past year.)

This causes the wires to rather break over a time through any number of ways the wires handled.. or to burn out through a short in the wires.. most of the time frying your controller in the process. Only solution to extend wire lifetime: Hang the wire strait in a vertical line off of something for example a wall or door.. the usb plug is fine but the problem area is between the "knot" and controller mount on the opposite end of the wire. solution #2: Dont buy wires.. battery packs and battery charge stations are cheaper in the end.
