Put fresh batteries in the controller. If you're using a rechargeable battery pack or rechargeable AAs, try swapping in a new pack or alkaline (normal, non-rechargeable) batteries to see if those are also affected. If the controller works better with alkaline cells, then your rechargeables might be worn out.

"The easiest way to sync them is with a plug 'n' play cord plugged directly into the 360, and then turn it on. When you unplug the controller (once the lights on the controller light up), it will be synced with that 360. Sometimes it will take a moment to boot the 360 from the controller without pressing the power button on the 360 itself.

While you're at it, in reference to the rechargeable batteries, try scrubbing the copper connectors, and plugging in the controller several times in order to fully recharge them.

A lot of the times, the rechargeable batteries will ""finish"" recharging, but not hold much of a charge. When it does, unplug and replug the controller until the light stays red and fully charges."

"I got it!!All you need to do is turn on both the Xbox and controller. Then press the connect button on the Xbox. Then press the same thing on the controller. It should work. I had the same problem.

Hope this helps!! :)"

"I found that the connection drops during playing and realised that it was when I was getting a bit physical with the controller (ie shaking it about a bit). It seems that the battery connectors come apart from the batteries when you shake the controller. To see if this is your problem just ry shaking the control quite hard and see if it switches off?

Take of the battery holder and use a small screwdriver or a knife tip to open up the metal tab in the middle of the battery holder a tiny bit more, then refit and enjoy."
