Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller
Batteries are fine, inserted the correct way etc. I have tried re-chargeables and ordinary AA ones but no luck.
The controller just would not switch on one day.
Is the controller dead & needs replacing?
Is this a common occurrence, or is there an easy fix, something obvious?
The controller is wireless, by the way.
Sometimes you have to beware of unknown batteries, because some companies that make the batteries are fake... However, look below for some of my FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
1. My battery pack won't does not work, and/or it will not turn on...
First, make sure that you have the right batteries that are known like Duracell. Next, DO NOT plug in the charger into your controller when you have AA batteries in your battery pack. Then, make sure that you press and hold the sync button of your Xbox 360 console, and your controller.
2. My wireless controller automatically turns off during gameplay...
First, make sure that you turn off the vibration of your controller, because the vibration takes away your controller's energy, and the lease power your controller will have. Next, please read the Frequently Asked Questions guide for wireless controllers, because there are some important steps about the wireless controllers. They usually have the problem with charging and changing AA batteries.
I hope that it was helpful, and if you have more questions, then you contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. Good Luck! ;-)

You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
