Xbox 360 Won't turn on whilst my control is connected to it.

I have a wireless control connected to the xbox via a plug-in cable. It has no battery pack attached. I tried to play the xbox today however the control kept disconnecting So i left it for a few hours and came back. Now when my control is connected to any of the three USB ports and i try to turn on the console it won't turn on, however when it isn't connected it will turn on. Yet when the console does turn on the control won't connect. I have made a youtube video showing what has happened here :


I have disconnected and reconnected everything on the Xbox and the problem still persists. Unfortunately I don't have a spare control, a battery pack or another plug in cable to see whether or not the problem resides with my current plug-in cable.

Anyway please help, Thank you.
