hey Brian,, well you can try this..1.) remove the battery from it,2.) remove all the screws so the the control opens up,3.) use a hair dryer, paper towels etc and dry it up as best as you could. use the hair dryer to finish of the job.4.) re assemble and re connect the controller using the connect button.

check the coils on both the battery pack and controller for any battery corrosion (white powdery paste) if you see any corrosion on the pack, buy a new pack, if you find some on the controller, you can try to scrape it off but it might be time to buy a new controller.
if no corrosion is sighted at all you can get into the controller with a special tool, there you can make sure everything is connected in the right place, look on youtube for a video on how it should look.
Xbox controller takes a signifigantly long time to
If you have a charge cable, connect that before you start the console, and make sure the proper input is on the TV. The cable should allow it to connect faster, though it\'s not always full-proof. I had this issue also (and still sometimes do) I bought a can of air, and cleaned the entire xbox, since dust can be electrically charged it can technically cause interference. (which is pretty unlikely though) then I disconnected all controllers and headsets and re-set their connection with the console. In addition, any receivers, microwaves or cell phones near your control or xbox can disrupt the signal, including metal and other electronic devices. So try as best you can to keep the area clear of those things. I am sorry it\'s not a perfect answer, but I hope that it helps you somewhat. I know how much of a pain it can be waiting for your controls to connect.Good Luck Sc Carl Storm (X-Box GT)
Issue with right analog stick - Xbox 360 Controller
I'm afraid I've had the same problem and I can shed a little light on it.
I've tried to fix this but to no avail. I have even transplanted the whole analog stick unit with one from a working controller to see if it will work but I have the same problem.
So, my conclusion the problem is not with the stick itself, but with the microcontroller inside the pad which takes the info from the stick.
I took the analog unit out, and plugged the pad into the computer without it , but STILL the vertical axis on the right stick was pushing up even though there was no input from a stick. It seems to be a fault with the pad, not the analog stick.
I can't get a second controller to work
after you press the button on your controller , also press the button on your xbox , it is present somewhere close to the power button , usually round , its a connect button it will then detect your controller :)
