Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
So my xbox 360 slim won't power on at all from the power button or controller. I have already confirmed that the power supply is working on a different 360 console. None of the USB ports are making contact with the case so that's not the problem either. The console is currently completely torn down and I have confirmed with a multimeter that the board is receiving 5 volts (is in standby mode). An inspection of the capacitors shows that they are perfectly flat and smooth the touch and there is no sign of burn marks on the board around them. My feeling is that the MOSFETs are the next logical place but I'm not sure how to properly test them. I am good with a soldering iron and don't mind removing them from the board if that's necessary to test them but don't want to do so needlessly. Any help would be much appreciated.

I had the same problem with my new controller. The trick is to hold the connect button on the console for a few seconds and then hold the connect button on the controller. The main part is to hhhhoooolldddd it until the ring lights up.

maybe the only way is take it a part and see if the sync button is not broken some how. therefore i advise you to buy a new controller maybe even a used 1 if you dont want to spend more than $20.
