Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
Hello, I either lost my original xbox 360 controller, or gave it away, can't remember. Anyhow I got wise and bought this all new Microsoft XBOX 360 controller for PC. Well, it says it's supposed to work in Windows XP and the XBOX 360, but mine does the same as the guitar mentioned above..
I can sync all night or day long and it will spin the 1-2-3-4 on both the console and the controller, the console and controller give a few flashes with all leds lit, showing it's connected. But after that only the power led on the console is on and the controller goes on blinking like it didn't have a connection. Weird...

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 bought this system recently, and it had the same problem from the beginning.
I opened it, and found that the problem was the F1 Fuse that is cutting the current. You have to open it and bypass (soldering) the two legs of the F1 Fuse.
This is how to open it: http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/6896/openingoi6.jpg

Hope this will help ;P

hook them up using the play-and-charge usb cable
Then, disconnect the cable.
they should stay synchronized and worked fine after that.

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.
