Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
When i turn the Controller on it just blinks and it will not connect to the console. I have replaced the batteries and still nothing.
There are multiple connections your controller have. When the device just blinks, it means that it works on one channel of the connection but the operation is faulty. You need to check the connection. I have some device that I am fun of connecting and reconnecting some faulty wires. All you have to do is cut/replace the wire with a new one and the connector. But you have to be careful of the connection that will not interchange the polarity.
But most of all get a tester and test connections before doing it or that may only cost a few dollars for replacement.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION: The EXACT same thing that is happening to you guys is happening to me - not connecting, but recognizing the controller was there, even with play/charge kit it wouldn't connect, resync wouldn't connect and the Xbox even turned itself off after a few mins. However I had changed from HDMI to a SDTV, and I hadn't changed to the mode on my HDTV to the game mode (to play xbox) and the second I changed it (like literally split second) it turned on, I saw the Xbox start logo go, then my controller synced. I think the xbox wasn't actually turning on fully to the point of the startup where it connects to the controllers, and it needed to recognize what definition it was going to boot in, so when I changed the TV to my xbox mode it was it was back in HDMI from SD and then booted correctly.

I had this same problem. One day i was just playing my xbox and i noticed one of my good controllers was running low on battery so i switched the batterys and battery case out from each other. When i tried to reconnect the controllers after that they wouldnt work.I tried taping the batterys, buying new ones, unplugging everything and replugging, moving metal and wireless things, and cords and rechargeable batterys. I eventually called MS support using this number -(1800) 4MY-XBOX. At first a machine answered then i eventually got to a real person. You can ship your broken or not responding controller off and they will send you a new one. This worked fine for me.
