Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
Don't say change the batteries 'cause it's the first thing I try and when I put the new batteries in, they'll work for a little bit then turn off again. I have one controller that came with the Xbox 360 and the other I purchased separtly. I want to go and buy new controllers but I don't want the same thing to happen with the new ones. Any suggestions 'cause about to break them both.
My solution of this problem is a bit technical but try and keep up. What I did was to remove the battery thingy so the insidy part was shown. I used my indexfinger and my thumb to pull the 2 springs longer so they would make more preasure at the batteries.
Then I put the batteries back in and havnt had any big problems since.
Im not sure if this solves your problems but its worth a shot since it fixed mine.
If this information was usefull to you please donate some money to charity

Just fixed this problem!!! on the back of the battery pack - centre, there is a metal contact (small) this also has two small metal contacts behind it that it presses onto...these are not contacting or touching so you need to bend these forward (use a small screw driver) so the main metal contact touches them, once adjusted you should not have any problems...do not bash your controller!!!!

It is the battery pack. Just a bad design. It becomes loose and you lose connection. The only things you can do are buy new controllers, use duck tape to keep a good connection or possibly get the 'charge and play kit'
Thanks Microsoft, ****** us over again.

How far are you from your xbox? It sounds like you might have some obstruction blocking the signal from your controller to your xbox.

hook them up using the play-and-charge usb cable
Then, disconnect the cable.
they should stay synchronized and worked fine after that.

check where you have the xbox located. try moving it to another place away from other eletronics see if this will speed connectivity.

Try replacing the batteries in your controller. If this does not work then try the controller on another console. Failing this your controller is broken.
Best recommendation is to buy a wire and use it wired.
