Have you ever synced one of these controllers before?
Hold the controller in your hand as if you were playing a game. Next flip the controller up so that the buttons on it, are facing you.
There is a small white button that you will see. Power your xbox up and after you get to your main menu press the sync button located about 2 inches to the left of your main power button on your console.
Press the described button on the console and then the described button on your controller. The two should sync together perfectly fine.

It sounds like something happened to the power button/wireless card on the XBOX 360. There is a card on the front of the console that has the power button in it. However it is also the wireless receiver for the controller as well. Now if you have tried another controller and it does the samething then it is most likely the issue is with the power button/wireless card. Now if you are still under warranty then you might give Microsoft a call about getting your XBOX fixed.

If you are not still under warranty this is actually an easy fix. What you will need the XBOX 360 open tool, torx 8 and torx 10 driver. Once you get the case off then you will unscrew the 3 screws for the power button card and then remove it and replace it with the new one. The connector is kind of like a USB port. They are real easy to get off ebay.
Hope this help,

Testimonial: "Thanks. Very helpful."
Tips for a great answer:
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.
