    Is the controller wireless? If wired, is it being used on PC?

Depends on how long you are playing. Usually I play a couple hours a night and my rechargeable battery pack last awhile till I have to switch it out. You can usually tell when the battery is getting low, a light starts to circle around the on/off button on the controller.

Wireless xbox 360 controller keeps disconnecting when i fire or get shot evertime whats the problem


I've had this same problem with a few controllers. It's your battery. Well, more specifically the container of the batteries. Chances are, it's lose.
(I would have to keep holding mine firmly in place, while playing games.) The reason it disconnects when you get shot is cause of the controller vibrations. It makes your battery jump out of place, due to not being held in place firmly.
My suggestion would be to either buy a new battery container, or turn vibrations off.
Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 wired controller glows green for 2 secs then shuts off


Microsoft software is usually very good about finding mods within their systems. Since you have repaired a wire, it might somehow think it's been modded.

Double-check your repair work, if you used a soldering iron, it could have attached to another wire -causing a short (faking a mod). If you just twisted and taped it, you might want to consider a better fix.

Wireless Xbox Controller Buttons are Dead for some strange reason


It's probbably a battery related problem. Sometimes dropping a controller can break/knock lose an electrical component. If you open up the controller, you might notify the problem.

Controler connects but disconnects later


COD 5 is a great game, but on to the problem...

...the controller connects and disconnects because of two main reasons:
1:The XBOX port has been worn or tampered with.
2:The controller plugin has small metal prongs, which can be bent and not connect propely or disconnect from movement of system or cord.

Hope this helps You! (need a new controller or try blowing into both ports)
