Take the battery pack off, there are two coiled springs that touch the batteries.
Stretch these springs up slightly, but not too much.
Then replace the battery pack.

None of the solutions I found online worked for me but everyone kept saying it was a problem with the connection between the batteries and the battery pack. I folded up pieces of tin foil and placed them anywhere there was a connection between the batteries and battery pack (top and bottom of batteries). I also slipped a small piece of foil in the slot that has the little metal piece sticking out of it in the middle of the battery pack. I've been playing for an hour now, hasn't disconnected yet. P.S. Try to make sure your pieces of tin foil aren't touching. I didn't test it out but I imagine it might cause problems. Good luck.

Wireless remote keeps turning off


check the coils on both the battery pack and controller for any battery corrosion (white powdery paste) if you see any corrosion on the pack, buy a new pack, if you find some on the controller, you can try to scrape it off but it might be time to buy a new controller.

if no corrosion is sighted at all you can get into the controller with a special tool, there you can make sure everything is connected in the right place, look on youtube for a video on how it should look.

My xbox 360 wireless controller is new and the green light just keeps falshing it will not go on to 1 or 2 player.


you may have to sync your controller to your xbox. First you hold the big X button in the middle to turn the controller on. Next, after making sure your 360 is turned on, push the sync button on the 360 controller so the lights around the big X are spinning around. you will find it located at the top of your control close tp LB (it has 3 little waves next to it) Finally, push the sync button on the 360( which is located directly to the right of memory unit B or with xbox360 s nex to the part at the front with 2 usb ports) and the lights around the on/off button of the console should spin. Eventually, your console will find the controller. hope this helps

Sixaxis controller turns left


The solution is simply to buy a new controller, or get a cheaper one like 'madcats' or 'Logitech' which is about half the price of the SONY brand.
But you need to consider this if buying a brand other than SONY;
it might not last as long maybe about 6 months-a year before it gets funny with the controls. Also, most of them needs a USB receiver and batteries for the controller to use wirelessly for PS3. Which I think is troublesome, cause you can't charge it like the SONY dual shocks, and have to spend more money for new batteries or rechargables. You also need to sacrafice a USB slot on the PS3 for the receiver to work wirelessly with the controller, and I have no idea what the response is like when playing games, it might not play as smoothly as the original SONY Dual Shock.

I had one that did this exact same thing and it was a wireless one.
yours is wireless as well. from experience i purchased a charge pack
and every other time i switched battery packs it would work for a long while but eventually i just took it back to wal-mart and got another one free of charge just told them it was defective.
I would take it back and not deal with the trouble of wasting good batteries, and dont worry if your warante is no good just call Microsoft and send it to them they have no problem replacing stuff ive had my 360 replaced 3 times.

Wireless controller position


Try this:
Under heading "How can I change the screen positions for my wireless controllers?"
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/resources/supportfaq.htm

To reset the screen configuration for an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console and any connected Xbox 360 wireless controllers.

    (To turn off your wireless controller, power down the system and wait for the lights around the controller's Xbox Guide button to disappear.)
  2. Manually turn on your Xbox 360—don't use your controller's Xbox Guide button.
  3. Press the connect button on the front of your console. This is the small button just to the right of (or below, if your console is on its side) the port for Memory Unit B. The lights around the console's power button will flash as the console searches for a wireless controller.
  4. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn on the wireless controller that you want to assign to slot one.
  5. Once the controller is on and the lights are still circling the power button on the console, press your controller's connect button, located just to the right of the charge port.

    When the lights on your controller stop spinning, the wireless controller is configured to slot one and the upper-left quadrant light will glow.
  6. Select the controller you want in slot two and repeat steps 4 and 5. You can configure up to four wireless controllers.
