I had this exact same issue the other day. Changing the batteries did not work for me, but don't cross that off of the list quite yet. This worked for me:
1.) Pop the battery pack off of the controller. This is the only way you're going to be able to turn it off. Wait about 5 seconds and put the battery pack back into the controller.
2.) Turn on your X-Box with the power button ON THE CONSOLE. It should turn ON. If it doesn't, unplug the X-Box for 30 seconds, plug it back in, and try again.
3.) When your X-Box turns on, go ahead and hit the controller's power button. Things should function normally from this point forward.
Please let me know if this works for you!
If your having troubles with your xbox360 controller turning on or having a mind of its own, take the battery pack of and you should be able to see a small bit of metal, bend it ever so lightly with a Stanley knife and it should do the trick. It may not on the first time so repeat until it does.
There's a button on the front of your 360 and the same button is
on the front of the controller. You hit the button on the 360 and the
green lights around the power button start to circle. Then you hit it
on your controller and the green lights around the xbox guide button
start to circle. In a second or two they'll find each other and both
will flash at the same time, and it's synced up. I've linked a video for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim.
Remove the batteries from both controllers, and unplug the Xbox for a minute. Now turn the Xbox on by the power button on the console, Install the batteries in your controllers, and hit the Console sync button first, then hit the little sync button on top of the controller. If this does not work, you can purchase the wired charge pack that you must plug in to the USB port of the console to charge, and this will sync as your wired controller does. When it is synced unplug the wire from the controller and voila. Remember, the charger pack will look like this.
You need to press the sync button on the Xbox360(little white button on the faceplate just under the DVD drive). Then you press the sync button on the wireless remote. (An even smaller little white button, on the side of the contoller that would be "facing" the 360 while you hold the controller)
I had a similar issue with the XBOX 360 Wireless controller. It blinked slow when it was turned on and when synced, the XBOX got the signal, the controller got the signal, but after the full flashes of both, the console ring stayed dark and the controller kept on blinking.
I managed to get it connected by powering the console on using the "XBOX" button on the controller and then pressed the connect button just as the console was opening up the user interface, apparently the console is looking for controllers when it's just getting up and running and syncs better at that point.
Turn off your Xbox 360 console and any connected Xbox 360 wireless controllers.
turn off your wireless controller, power down the system and wait for
the lights around the controller's Xbox Guide button to disappear.)
Manually turn on your Xbox 360—don't use your controller's Xbox Guide button.
the connect button on the front of your console. This is the small
button just to the right of (or below, if your console is on its side)
the port for Memory Unit B. The lights around the console's power button will flash as the console searches for a wireless controller.
Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn on the wireless controller that you want to assign to slot one.
the controller is on and the lights are still circling the power button
on the console, press your controller's connect button, located just to
the right of the charge port.
When the lights on your controller
stop spinning, the wireless controller is configured to slot one and
the upper-left quadrant light will glow.
Select the controller you want in slot two and repeat steps 4 and 5. You can configure up to four wireless controllers.
Whenever a wireless controller is used on multiple 360s you need to resync the controller to the console. To do this turn both the controller and the 360 on, then find the little sync button on the 360 controller and hold it down until the lights flash in a clockwise circle. Now find the sync button on the 360 console and hold it down until the lights on the console spin in a clockwise fashion. Wait a couple seconds until the two sync up and then voila, you're good to go!
