Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
Basically, my wired(not wireless) 360 controller is broken. It only turns on for a half a second at a time. If I move the cord in the right spot(spot varies) it'll turn on for a half second. Otherwise it stays off.
A month or so ago it would stay on for a while if I kept the controller wire at the right spot. All the buttons worked fine, there was no problem there. The mic. would work fine as well for XBL. As far as I can tell, nothing is wrong with my controller expect for the fact that it won't stay on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not exactly thrilled about the possibility of having to spend $40 for a new controller, you know?
Yeah I foudn the problem. I just found out one of the wires was broken inside, right above where the controler meets the wire. It was a grayish wire, probably the one that turns it on. No wonder it would only turn on if the wire was in a certain position, it was connecting the wires! Problem solved.

U said u moved the cable and it turned on for half a second so maybe the problem is that a cable inside was cut. its really easy to fix that just take the plastic off from were the cut is and get the cable that is cut and with your fingers put them back together now get your black tape and tape it all around were the cut is and when ur done just put more tape now connect your controller to the xbox 360 and it should work just fine.i had the same problem and i fix it myself.

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.
