You should see the connection light around the "Guide" button on the controller light up, indicating which port you are connected to.

If the battery has run flat you may need to pair the controller to the Xbox, Switch on your Xbox and press the small button to the right of the memory card slots, the four green lights will start to flash. Now press the small button that is next to the socket on the front of the controller.
there is a "sync" button located on the top rim of the controller. the is also a "sync" button located on the xbox 360. the sync button on the xbox 360 is a small round circle on the faceplate. To connect the controller, turn on the xbox and click both buttons at the same time.
If it is a wireless controller all you have to do is turn your xbox 360 on and then you press the tiny button on the front of your 360. Then you press the tiny button on your wireless controller. Once they are synced all you have to do next time to connect the controller is hold down the xbox button until it lights up when the 360 is already on.
Let me know if it is something else or if you need further clarification.
Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, If the reciever is not lighting up then it is dead, you can try to take it to walmart and exchange it for a working one, they are usualy good at swapping out and if they give you a hard time buy a new one and return it with the old reciever instead of the new one. I hope this helps you.
it sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.
- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)
