Sounds daft cause you have probably tried already, but have you re-synced the controller?
1. Turn on the controller
2. Turn on the console
3. Press the sync up button on the console
4. Press the sync up button on the controller

  1. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.
On the Xbox 360 S console, each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console power button and the controller Guide button. On the 360 E console, a solid green light on the front of the console indicates that the controller is connected. To determine the player position associated with your accessory, look at the ring of light that surrounds the Guide button on the controller.

You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Guide button for three seconds, and then choose to turn the controller off.
  • When you turn off the console, the controller will reconnect the next time you turn on the console.
  • The controller can be connected to only one console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different console, but the connection to the previously connected console will be lost.

1-try rettting the game's control layout back to default...you might have changed the layout 2-is this problem happening in other games as well? if it does, then we can consider taking the controller for repair 3-there is always ebay and amazon to get you a new controller 4-do you have a wireless or usb adapter to connect the xbox controller to the pc? in windows 7 you can use the gamepad as a gamepad and in "callibration settings" you can test the buttons

My xbox controllers will not charge with the plug in kit. The light turns red, then either immediately green, or it starts to blink red-off-red-off.


I had the same problem. The Battery pack on mine was dead for a long time as i havent touched my Xbox 360 in a while. So
SOLUTION
Step 1. Plug the play and charge cord into the controller
Step 2. If Light turns green within a minute or so, Unplug the play and charge cord and go to Step 1 (Repeating this process until the light stays red on the play and charge cord (3-10 times))

Xbox 360 Wireless controller wont turn on


Right, just keep plugging in the charger into the controller until the light stays red, the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice for it's built in 'memory' to be clued in as to how much power is really in and will then start charging. This is usually caused by leaving your controller unused for a while usually days or so at room temperature after fully charging it in your xbox (i.e. the battery memory 'thinks' it's full and tells the xbox as much when really it's empty)

My controller wont turn on without the charger cord


If you are using a rechargeable battery and it hasn't been used for a year it is possible that it is not holding a charge anymore. You may have to buy a new rechargeable battery. A good way to test that there is nothing wrong with the controller is to throw some AA batteries in there to make sure. If the controller works fine with two AA batteries then you know that you most likely need new rechargeable batteries. If it doesn't work you have have a bigger problem with the controller or the cord, but I doubt that there is a problem with the controller.

My WireLess XBox 360 Controller wont connect to my XBox 360


i had the same problem, and is a easy fix, turn on your console, dont need the controller on, and hold the sync button for approx 30 seconds, then turn the console off, take out the power lead from the console and then remove it from your mains, wait about 1-2 minuts then plug it up and switch on the console, first sync the xbox then the controller, and this should work, if it dosent try xbox support their number is on xbox.com

My red xbox 360 controller wont charge with the included play and charge kit after i turn off my console, it works if i do it as soon as it dies but not if ive played for a little while and then turn it...


Basically an xbox battery has a built in 'memory' that it tells the xbox how much charge is in it and the problem with rechargable batteries is that if they're not used for a while and left at room temperature their charge begins to dissipate so when you plug it in the battery 'thinks' it's charged and tells the xbox the same when in truth it's not. What to do is keep plugging and unplugging the charger on top (waiting until the light comes on) until the charger light stays red (as opposed to going red then immediately green) the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice to clue it as to just how much power it REALLY has in and will then start charging as normal.

Xbox 360 wireless contoller won't sync with game console


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.
