It's defective, definitely. Either take the receipt and return for exchange or money back or if it's too old, sell on ebay for parts and get a new one. I would suggest not buying used if you can help it unless you go to game stop. Those you find on ebay could have sticking control sticks that really are awful when trying to navigate through a menu, etc.

Controller wont come on and i have brand new batteries it wont sink the light wont even come on

I had a similar problem, I'm not sure if its the same thing, mine was caused by a faulty connection in the back of the battery pack (the silver square in the middle.)
Try with a different battery case, or a pack from a play and charge kit (if you have them), this will determine if it is the battery pack or the controller, if it isn't the battery pack, you could try a repair shop/guide for steps on the controller, sorry I cant be of more help.

Wont turn on with new batteries in it and battery pack from my other controller

this is a common problem. this does the same thing with my controller too. its not the answer you'll like, but you will probably have to buy a new controller. this is as a result of the pack coming loose. the coils that hold the batteries in place sometimes bend, this causes the batteries to move. that is why the controller keeps disconnecting. i would recommend switching to a wired controller :( sorry

Wireless controller wont turn on

If you're using the AA battery pack, try this.

Use a small screwdriver or other such tool to pry up the metal spring on the back of the battery pack as seen here:

This will give you access to the two small metal prongs underneath. Pry these up as well, as far as you can (see below).

Finally, push the metal spring back down just enough so that a little bump of it appears above the battery pack, like so.

Now power it up and test it out!
