SOURCE: I already tried it.
Get someone to press the botton the same time as you but make sure the 4 rings are flashing or doing the same as on your controller, if that does not work then hold your button down and tell them to just press it

I've had the same problem today. The controller wouldn't connect no matter what. The strange thing was I could still turn the console on using the controller, but afterwards it wouldn't do anything.
Now I think I found a solution, at least for my case. All I did was to remove the HDD (that thing on top of the console) and put it back in. Then I started the console again using the controller and it was instantly connected.:)
Now I just hope it stays this way.;)

Yeah I foudn the problem. I just found out one of the wires was broken inside, right above where the controler meets the wire. It was a grayish wire, probably the one that turns it on. No wonder it would only turn on if the wire was in a certain position, it was connecting the wires! Problem solved.

If you're using an HDMI connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, it might be that. When using HDMI, the Xbox won't boot up until it knows what the TV is capable of displaying. Although the controller will turn the console on, it won't sync with the console -- and it's not a controller or console problem, but just a symptom of the fact that the Xbox won't get to the point where controllers will sync until it can properly communicate with the TV. I'd recommend turning off the TV and the Xbox, disconnecting the HDMI cable and re-connecting it after making sure the contacts are clean. Then turn the Xbox back on first; you'll likely to see the same behavior. Finally, turn the TV back on. With it being switched back into HDMI mode, it just might "kick-start" the Xbox into a good communication link across HDMI. Hope that helps.

I was having the same problem, and what seemed to fix mine was my hard drive. I keep my 360 on it's side and it [hard drive] was falling out a little. I pushed it back in and that seemed to do the trick. Also, when I fix my red rings, I just turn the console off, unhook EVERYTHING and leave it out for a minute. Then I hook everything back in (power cord, hdmi cable, ethernet cable, and hard drive) and it usually works out ok. I'm not saying that fixes everything, but, it has for me in the past.
