Your controller is most likely exhibiting a hardware failure. Taking apart the device voids your warranty. When a button does not work anymore, it is safe to say that you will need to buy a new controller.

The Logitech Chillstream Gamepad is only $20 and works in the same fashion as the XBOX 360 Controller (uses the same xb360 XInput controller driver too!)

Give that a look.

    Best way to fix it is to put a NO switch on 1st (top if bottom of controller facing ou) and 2nd. Lose analog function but it works great. More than likely it is just a spring or assembly of the trigger you mashed to hard. Controller probably works great

Simple as a worn out part. The right trigger is the default fire button for most, if not all, first person shooters. The trigger has a button behind it that needs replacing. Get an old controller and take either the R or L trigger button off the board. Take the right button off your controller and do a simple swap. Need soldering skills or know somebody who does. BTW the most common part that wears out is the R analog stick. Sticks top right for some reason and your character starts drifting or moving on its own, quite irritating really.

Xbox 360 controller right trigger always activates

There are a couple things you should try before buying a new controller. First, make sure that when you start your pc or xbox 360 that you are not pressing the trigger, as this can make it stick while it is on. Next, you can try to plug in/turn on the controller and then plug out/turn off the controller a few times in a row, this may work also. If neither of those work, then you could still try with a different console or pc, and if the problem persists to those, I would think about buying a new controller.

My xbox 360 wired controller's right trigger is always activating without it being pressed

If the potentiometer for the trigger is bad or is not making good contact with the circuit board, say through a poor solder connection, this could be your problem. If the controller isn't getting any signal from the electronic trigger component it sees that as a pressed trigger and becomes grenade happy. This has happened to me.

My xbox 360 controller left bumper trigger wont work. I have opened it but it looks like nothing is wrong and it doesnt wiggle or move at all? please help

The contact point on the left trigger might have failed already due to wear and tear since there are moving parts, and if there are moving parts there is friction thus likely could damage the contact point of trigger whenever being pressed. The might need to be replaced in that case.
