first off just let me say, if you are not going to read this whole post and pay attention, save my time and yours and don't reply. i have searched google and the support and forum features here for the answer to this problem with no luck. my 360 console will no longer recognize my wireless controllers. i have 2 of them. and neither one will connect. i've tried using both brand new AA batteries and my plug and play charge kit. nothing works. and yes, i've pressed the sync buttons on both the console and the controller. the green lights just spin around in circles like it is fixing to connect, then the lights on the console go off without indicating a controller was connected, and the lights on the controller go back to flashing. i can connect a wired controller. but only the older white models. i have a newer black wired controller and even when it is plugged in, the console says no controller is connected and the black wired controller won't work. has anyone else had a similiar problem? or know of how to fix this? don't really want to send my console off for repairs. i've had terrible luck with that in the past.
