I have tried ever thingon the web that i found about this problem but none of them worked. I tried the unpluging of the power cord, the turning of my tv, ect. I have tried every thing i can think of. Dose anybody have any answers that will work for me?
1. since you are using a WIRED CONTROLLER, and its not conencting,try using a different controller to further isolate you issue.
2. if the other controller worked,then most probably the controller that your trying to use is not working, try calling xbox customer support for possible replacement of ur accesory.
3. If the other controlle still doesnt work,then you hav eto send your console in for repair, you can process a repair to the website service.xbox.com,click on "repair my console" or if you want to be assisted by xbox support reps.call xbox support hotline,, 1-800-4-MYXBOX.

Do you have charged bat packs or fresh bats. Have you synced both the controller and the xbox together? Unplug the unit for a min. and check all connections if wired. plug in and try to sync again, Push the little buttons on the front of the controller and the on on the unit at the same time and see if the lights do the circle thing. That will usually work for me.
If the wireless controllers won't
connect under any circumstances even with the Charge-and-Play Cable then
you most likely have a problem with a board inside your 360, i think
it's like the RF board or something, mind you, the C-P cord only forces
through an electrical charge and does not force the controller and
console to connect, it just works when your batteries are low, in the
event that your console is faulty, you can purchase RF boards and
replace them yourself (voids the warranty but takes 20 minutes) or send
it into XBox HQ (gives you more warranty but takes like 6 months) .
If by not syncing you mean it flashes the whole ring when you plug the controller in the USB and won't identify? If so I think the problem may be that you have other USB devices plugged in at the same time. Unplug all the USB and plug the controller in by itself. I've had issues with this for awhile myself. I had a bluetooth and another wireless kb/mouse. So I unplugged everything tried it by itself and it seems to identify perfectly.
Conclusion: Unplug all the USB devices and plug the Afterglow 360 controller by itself and that should solve the problem. =)
Your Xbox 360 console is utilizing wireless connectivity for controllers through a radio frequency. Chances are the receiver for that frequency might be encountering some hardware failure for your console or for the controllers. You might want to try connecting your wireless controllers to a different console and see if it will work. If it does connect, maybe it is time for your Xbox 360 to give a little visit to the Microsoft Service Center.
I just came home to find this same problem. Four blinking lights on the wireless controller and the inability to sync the controller with my 360. On a whim I took out my controller's battery and then reinserted it after a few seconds. Voila! Problem solved. Controller works normally again!
I kind of fixed it. The problem appears to be with the USB controller - specifically, my mouse (a Razer Copperhead) and the XBOX 360 wireless receiver. A lot of work went into the solution, but I essentially ended up uninstalling and unplugging all of my USB devices (you can uninstall them using device manager in System Properties>>Hardware within Control Panel. Look for Universal Serial Bus and uninstall everything in that category). Reboot. Then, I first plugged in the device in question (my 360 receiver). Afterwards, I one by one plugged in each item until I found the one conflicting with the receiver (my mouse). After that, I uninstalled all devices again and next uninstalled the drivers for the conflicting device (my mouse in this case) and rebooted again. After this, I tried several times to uninstall and reinstall the mouse and various USB devices until finally it worked (sort of).
I call this a partial solution because now I appear to have the opposite problem. My mouse seems to be conflicting with another device (probably the 360 receiver). My mouse refresh rate is very choppy. The good news (for me) is that I can uninstall the USB controller for the mouse, reboot, and both the 360 controller and the mouse will work fine... that is until shut down. Then I have to uninstall the mouse controller and reboot again. Needless to say, I keep my computer on more than usual now.
