If you are using a rechargeable battery and it hasn't been used for a year it is possible that it is not holding a charge anymore. You may have to buy a new rechargeable battery. A good way to test that there is nothing wrong with the controller is to throw some AA batteries in there to make sure. If the controller works fine with two AA batteries then you know that you most likely need new rechargeable batteries. If it doesn't work you have have a bigger problem with the controller or the cord, but I doubt that there is a problem with the controller.

My xbox controllers will not charge with the plug in kit. The light turns red, then either immediately green, or it starts to blink red-off-red-off.


I had the same problem. The Battery pack on mine was dead for a long time as i havent touched my Xbox 360 in a while. So
SOLUTION
Step 1. Plug the play and charge cord into the controller
Step 2. If Light turns green within a minute or so, Unplug the play and charge cord and go to Step 1 (Repeating this process until the light stays red on the play and charge cord (3-10 times))

Xbox 360 wireless controller wont work unlessed plugged in


Right, just keep plugging in the charger into the controller until the light stays red, the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice for it's built in 'memory' to be clued in as to how much power is really in and will then start charging. This is usually caused by leaving your controller unused for a while usually days or so at room temperature after fully charging it in your xbox (i.e. the battery memory 'thinks' it's full and tells the xbox as much when really it's empty)

My red xbox 360 controller wont charge with the included play and charge kit after i turn off my console, it works if i do it as soon as it dies but not if ive played for a little while and then turn it...


Basically an xbox battery has a built in 'memory' that it tells the xbox how much charge is in it and the problem with rechargable batteries is that if they're not used for a while and left at room temperature their charge begins to dissipate so when you plug it in the battery 'thinks' it's charged and tells the xbox the same when in truth it's not. What to do is keep plugging and unplugging the charger on top (waiting until the light comes on) until the charger light stays red (as opposed to going red then immediately green) the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice to clue it as to just how much power it REALLY has in and will then start charging as normal.

My controller wont turn on without the charger cord


Sounds daft cause you have probably tried already, but have you re-synced the controller?
1. Turn on the controller
2. Turn on the console
3. Press the sync up button on the console
4. Press the sync up button on the controller

Xbox controller will not sync with console


Disconnect the power cord from the 360 for a couple of minutes.

Plug it back in and turn it on. Power turn on a different controller than the one that isn't working and sync it with the 360.

Now turn on the original controller that wouldn't sync, and use the sync buttons on the 360 and controller. It should sync up and go to player 2 slot.

Everything should be good now, that's how I fixed mine.
