Issue with uknown controller/constant menu boxes

My xbox has recently become really weird. I only have 1 controller but it now thinks there are 2. And when they random controller shows up, the xbox constantly flips between the xbox menu (like pressing xbox logo on controller) and the shut off console screen. It will switch constantly back in forth every second till you shut it off. Then when you turn it back on, with either button or controller, the uknown controller (which there isn't one) comes up always as first and the actual controller and 2nd.

Any ideas?

I see you have Guitar Hero games in your list of played games, do you still have a guitar somewhere tucked away that is having the guide button constantly pressed or the batteries are going flat ?

When the going gets tough find something easier to do.

I see both guitars, however nothing is pressing on them. And the controller is plugged in via USB.

Have you tried disconnecting/taking the batteries out of the guitars to see if you still get this phantom controller showing up. It could be a button stuck in on a guitar.
