Why won't it turn on?
I plug the controller in to my PC or Xbox and it won't turn on, Any help is appreciated
I know i am a little late here, but i ran into a similar problem. For me, my controller would flicker on but then turn off and even if it did turn on i could not use it. I fixed it by, plugging it into the xbox one, turning off the xbox one and unplugging it. I then rebooted the xbox one and the controller worked.
the controller is not the problem, i found thats its more of the cord that ends up breaks before the end first. so i recommend trying a new cord to see if that helps.
The USB connector on the controller is damaged. If you have the tools and ability to do so, unsolder the connector and solder on a new one.
Have you tried a different USB port? I had a problem with my PDP controller randomly turning the xbox on.. Then would not turn on itself. Turned out to be a USB port problem.
I popped open the back and dragged around a wire on the main board and it turned on. I think it might have a issue with turning on by itself. -this voids your warranty.
I finally found out the answer!!
My controller stopped working after my headphone jack quit out, I would turn on with the white bar but wouldn’t respond, I ended up taking it apart and noticed that the headphone jack was bent after bending it back the controller worked just as good as new. Hopefully this helps :)
I disconnected the cable from the controller and hard resetted (hold the power button until the Xbox light stops flashing on the console, or until the power brick turns from white to orange) the xbox. I waited about 10 seconds and plugged it back up, and it works again. I hope this helps someone. This was for a problem for the led lights working but the white light wouldn't appear and the controller itself was unresponsive.
