A friend of mine woke up yesterday morning, turned on his 360 and attempted to play. Only to discover that when he hits the xbox button in the center of his controller, the light just continuously flashes never connecting to the console. The same thing happens with both of his controllers, one of which is brand new, even when plugged in directly using the play and charge kit. I've instructed him to send his 360 in for repair as it is still under warranty. But he asked that I post a thread here to see if there are any alternate solutions before doing so.
