If you have some sort of cable with which you can connect your controller to your console, it is best you try use it.
if you don't, here is what you would do.
1.switch off the console and all it's controllers.
2.differentiate between the two controllers.maybe tag them controller a and b
3.turn on the console again and switch on controller a first, wait and see if it synchronizes properly.
4.turn off controller a and switch on controller b and see if it synchronizes with your console properly.
5.if they both work separately, turn everything off and switch on again and try to use both controllers at the same time.
6.if it repeats the same thing, switch only one controller on and then when you turn on the other one, press the small button in front of the controller close to the right trigger button and also press a button that looks similar to it on the console. this should help you synchronize all the controllers.

How to Configure an Xbox Controller Fotolia.com"> configure-xbox-controller-800x800.jpg Configure you Xbox controller.

The Xbox 360 utilizes two types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

  1. Wired
    • 1 Connect the controller's cable to the in-line release cord. This cord prevents you from accidentally pulling the Xbox 360 along with your controller during game play.
    • 2 Insert the in-line release cord's USB plug into the USB port on the front of the console.
    • 3 Turn on the console to activate the controller automatically.
    Wireless
    • 1 Insert batteries in your wireless controller, if necessary.
    • 2 Hold down the "Guide" button on the controller.
    • 3 Push the Xbox 360's "Connect" button, located on the front of the console.
    • 4 Push the controller's "Connect" button to sync it with the Xbox 360.

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, If the reciever is not lighting up then it is dead, you can try to take it to walmart and exchange it for a working one, they are usualy good at swapping out and if they give you a hard time buy a new one and return it with the old reciever instead of the new one. I hope this helps you.

XBOX 360 WIRELSS CONTROLLERS JUST BLINK WONT CONNECT


Did you try to press the sync button on both the XBOX and the controller? This should make them connect after they take a second to find out that their searching for eachother. If this doesn't work then you should call into Microsoft and talk to them because the sync system might be faulty. Try the controllers on another XBOX before calling just to make sure though.

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.
