Wireless controller control functions does not work.
My xbox 360 powers up and reads the disk but the controllers will not start the game. The lights on the console do not light up. I sent my unit in for a disk drive replacement and the lights worked prior to the replacement. The drive would not read the disk prior to the replacement but does now. I have tried several controllers without any success.

How to Configure an Xbox Controller
Configure you Xbox controller.
The Xbox 360 utilizes two
types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a
video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You
can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a
wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
Connect the controller's cable
to the in-line release cord. This cord prevents you from accidentally
pulling the Xbox 360 along with your controller during game play.
Insert the in-line release cord's USB plug into the USB port on the front of the console.
Turn on the console to activate the controller automatically.
Insert batteries in your wireless controller, if necessary.
Hold down the "Guide" button on the controller.
Push the Xbox 360's "Connect" button, located on the front of the console.
Push the controller's "Connect" button to sync it with the Xbox 360.
Is this a new controller? Are the batteries new/recharged?
This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both
Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!
Step 1 | Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
Step 2 | Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360
console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is
the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.
Step 3 | On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
Step 4 | On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
Step 5 | After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller
and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the
Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the
controller is connected.
Light indicator on console Green light in the center- power is on Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller
Light indicator on wireless controllers No lights - no batteries

*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries *Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries *If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.
If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement. If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.
*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.
