Yellow light on controller?

Recently my wired 360 controller has just stopped working. It was plugged into the machine correctly but the pad wouldnt light up showing a connection. I opened up my pad & stripped the main controller wire to see that on of the four internal wires was broken. I have fixed the break in the wire & connected the pad back to the machine & it works but a yellow / orange light has come up on segment 2 of the guide button. I would like to know what this means & also that if the machine recognises it as a modded pad, would i still get achievements (just to be on the safe side). At the moment I am using the spare wirless pad I save for split screen gaming as use the wired one to save on bateries.

I noticed that there was a slightly losse screw on the contoller that I did not do up quite right so I tightened it. The light used to change from orange to yellow every now & again but now stays yellow constanly. I have also noticed that if i turn the machine off the light stays on when it is still plugged in.

The orange and yellow most like means that the xbox recongizes that there is an issue with the controller and i would not be worried about the xbox seeing it as a modded controller as long as it does not alter the game play in anyway.
