Hello, I recently noticed a problem its that my xbox controller will not connect to my xbox 360. I've read many posts and forums but none seem to have a solution that works. Take in mind that I have had this Xbox 360 Arcade since 2008. This thing is a beast and has worked perfectly (up untill this point) and even has gone so far as to have survived 8 RED RINGS of Death. I cannot make this up. I've had 3 Complete Red Rings which means the console is beyond F*%ked along with the other different types of red rings that you can get. I never did any stupid towel trick, I simply left the console off or turned it back on again. My friends and I have yet to understand how this Xbox Arcade is still kicking since all of them witnessed these first hand.
Currently I'm in my 3rd year of college and noticed when I brought it home I doesn't want to connect. Nothing around it is on. Nothing that could interfere, I've tried re-syncing it. I have noticed that when both the console and the controller are off, if I hold the xbox button on the controller, the console will turn on like normal, but won't connect to the controller. (perhaps thats just a normal thing). I'll continue to fiddle with it. I've tried directly connecting the controller without a battery pack to the xbox via charging cable but it still doesn't recognize the controller. I'm certain I'll get it to work but a little help may be needed with this.
