First thing to do is check your USB ports on the console. Plug in a flash drive or anything into all 3 USB ports to test them. If they all work you have eliminated the console as the source of the problem.
Alternatively, if you believe it may be the play and charge kit itself, simply plug it into any usb on any pc with a controller attached. If the red charging light turns on, it is working properly.
If both check out it simply means it's time to replace the battery pack in the controller. They have a life cycle depending on usage, and they vary greatly.
The usb ports are soldered onto the mainboard and would require quite a bit of technical knowlege to replace. You are stuck with wireless controllers and batteries. There are charging stations for xbox 360 controllers on ebay. Most 360's have a USB port on the back above the network port. You could charge with that one. Good Luck
Ceck to see if the USB's is all ok. I fixed a friends his showing same symptoms and one of the USB was broken and the prongs were tou=ching causing a surge to go through it., just move the prongs so they are not touching put a piece of tape over the usb so you wont use it again
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.
Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.
hey guys i was freakin out because i had that same problem. i didnt want to pay an extra 1000$ just because the stupid repair guys wouldnt tell me the answer. So look inside your broken usb port, there should be like golden prongs in there. if they are bent, straighten them and you can turn your xbox back on. Now this might not be the case with you, but that is how i just solved my problem. if you have any questions ill try to keep posted and see if i can help further. also you can get me at my gamertag for xbox live. its volcomxskater37
yo i tried everything and it turned out to be what one dude on her said about the usb ....if u look close in the usb port ...ther is 4 things sticking out ..in one port they were all straight ...in the other port they were crushed up against the wall so i took a knife and smashed them back down away from the wall make sure they are pointed down AWAY from the walll i cant plug a controller in that port but i can the other port.....soooooooooooooooooo it dont matter and bammmmmmmmmmmmm it came on i started **** in front of everyone
There is a small white button on the front of the console, and one on the front of the controller, push both so the controller and console will recognize each other. Also if you have a play and charge kit you can try plugging the controller directly into the xbox usb port. That should work.
I have the issue mostly when the batteries are about to die, Try changing the batteries, or if you are using a play and charge kit (sold seprately) connect it to your xbox 360 and one of the front usb ports. Or replace the rechargeable battery.
