Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
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!!!
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.

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.
Good luck and be patient.

It could be what is called an RF board its located just behind the ring of light you will need to probably buy a new one maybe on ebay its cheap enough, also to replace this RF board you will need to open your xbox 360 which will void your warranty!

The Xbox 360 utilizes two
types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a
video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You
can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a
wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
