Hey Pete,

Xbox 360 controllers do not have that problem very often and you know what happens to me sometimes. I change the batteries and the controller still doesn't turn on. Turns out the batteries that i replaced had no juice on it. Make sure you are using the right kind of batteries too meaning don't cheap out and use the ones you get at 99c stores or anything like that. Those will work by the way they will not last more two days. Buy new batteries.

If you are using a wireless controller, the most likely issue is that the batteries in your controller have gone dead.
To replace the batteries, simply do the following:

1. Open the battery case by pressing the release button on the top of the battery pack which is located on the back of the controller.

2. Replace the batteries.

X-box 360 controller will not switch on

Sometimes you have to beware of unknown batteries, because some companies that make the batteries are fake... However, look below for some of my FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. My battery pack won't does not work, and/or it will not turn on...

First, make sure that you have the right batteries that are known like Duracell. Next, DO NOT plug in the charger into your controller when you have AA batteries in your battery pack. Then, make sure that you press and hold the sync button of your Xbox 360 console, and your controller.

2. My wireless controller automatically turns off during gameplay...

First, make sure that you turn off the vibration of your controller, because the vibration takes away your controller's energy, and the lease power your controller will have. Next, please read the Frequently Asked Questions guide for wireless controllers, because there are some important steps about the wireless controllers. They usually have the problem with charging and changing AA batteries.

I hope that it was helpful, and if you have more questions, then you contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. Good Luck! ;-)
