    Controller Refuses To Turn On


    My Xbox One controller has been working fine all this time since purchase and it was recharged early morning this day. A few hours later however I was in the middle of a game when my character started to uncontrollably spin and no matter what direction I
    tilted either analog there was no response. Immediately after, the controller shut off and would not turn back on. I plug in the charge cord thinking it needs an update or something, but the light on the cord does not light up nor does the controller turn
    on. So I removed the battery pack and put in a fresh pair of AA batteries. It turned on but would not connect. While trying to connect the controller became super heated and I could smell a strong scent of paint. The kind of flowery clay paint that is cheap
    and used in little kid art classes. I quickly took the batteries out, which were way too hot to even touch. Is my controller just dead now, because I can't use AA batteries or even my Play and Charge Kit?

    :)

    When i first got this controller around 11/23/13 it was working fine, by 1/1/14 the LB and Left analog stick had broke and about 2 weeks ago, the controller refuses to charge the battery, and refuses to turn on when using non-rechargable

    Xbox 360 refuses to turn on

    For the record this is a 250 gb Xbox 360 E purchased sometime in 2013

    My xbox turned off automatically and now will not turn on except to display a green light for 1 second.

    Details:

    I was using the xbox in the basement which was somewhat cooler than room temperature. Twice my xbox turned off automatically once in the middle of playing Gears 3 (I had been playing for ~ 1.5-2 hours) and again while I was just looking at statistics in
    the games menu. Then It was only on for ~30 seconds (I timed it). Now when I try to turn it on, it only displays a green light on the power button for 1 sec. The fan or disk drive don't make a noise. The light on the power block/brick w/e is solid orange before
    I turn it on and during the brief time it is on (if it is on for a sec). Hours later the same problem persists (which is why I'm posting this at 12am EST)

    At first my father and I thought it was an overheating problem but it turns off automatically too fast for it to get very hot. It may of been that ~ 2 hour session but I've done longer in the past with no problems (although the day before was quite intensive).
    The xbox also had it's vents uncovered and was resting on an open top desk along with it's power block.

    I tried looking at fixes and guides but most of them consisted of plugging in the xbox in various orders (didn't work) and the problems others faced usually came with symptoms my xbox did not have (flashing red or orange lights, error messages). Maybe I
    just missed the solution.

    I don't quite know what to think. Has anyone here had the same issue? Is it an overheating problem? Did u find a way to fix it?

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    It sounds dead to me... but I'm not experienced with controller issues. Mine have always worked perfectly.

    Xbox one controller not working after firmware update

    The controller works fine when i plug it viz. USB. But once unplugged it refuses to even stay powered on. It blinks twice and turns off. I even tried using a new pair of batteries but it still refuses to be turned on.

    manette xbox one halo 5 guardians ne s'allume plus

    Personne pour répondre ????

    Traduction en anglais :

    Hello, I have a controller xbox one halo 5 guardians who refuses to light.

    this

    controller was bought 2 and a half years ago, she has an official

    battery xbox one and it is by recharging this battery that she refused

    to light thereafter. I tested with batteries, but it does not work. The battery works on another controller. I

    have the impression that it is a false contact or short circuit because

    the light refuses to light up or very weak for some micro seconds and

    goes out immediately.

    I tried to play with the cable, but when I plug the cable, the controller turns on and off immediately.

    What is the warranty period for a controller? or can it be repaired?

    It's a collector joystick and I do not want to separate ....

    cordially

    Xbox 360 refuses to turn on

    (Posting this here because I'll be referencing this thread in my repair request)

    I fear I may have voided the warranty (tampering/external damage) by trying to remove the face plate

    details:

    While looking up guides on how to repair an Xbox, I mistook a guide for an Original Xbox 360 (despite it being clearly labeled as "Xbox 360 Original Console") for a general Xbox 360 guide. It said to remove the face plate and so I tried on the Xbox 360 E.
    I did not remove the face plate but I did warp the edge in spots. Pictures:

    The Guide:
    forums.xbox.com/.../153182.aspx


    I don't know whether this will be considered tampering or causing external damage (and therefore voiding the warranty) regardless of it's relation to the problem I'm having with the console. I only hope that Microsoft will still accept my request and claim
    to the warranty as that is all I can do.
