Can't turn on or sync wireless controller?

  1. I was going to sync my wireless controller with my friend's Xbox 360, but it wouldn't turn on to sync it. I changed the batteries and it turned on. I got it synced and it turned off.
    I tried turning it back on, but it won't turn back on. It blinks for a few seconds, and I've been able to re-sync it a few times, but it just turns off again. I've tried all kinds of things, but the controller won't even turn on to sync it. I can't even sync it back to my console. I can hold the middle button and it will blink, but it won't turn on, and therefor won't sync. Does anyone know anything that can help?

  1. Are the contacts on the controller and battery holder clean, as this may cause this if the contacts are dirty or dusty. Trying wiping them gently with a cloth or blowing the dust. You could also try a rechargable battery pack or another battery holder. Also try and connect the controller using a Play and Charge Kit cable to plug the controller in to the console. After it is connected remove the cable a few seconds later and see what happens whether it stays connected or disconnects again. Otherwise it maybe an issue with your controller try contacting Xbox support for assisstance.
