XBox 360 controller won't stay on with batteries...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I wanted to play a 360 game that isn't backwards compatible on the One but I seem to be having an issue with my controller. It's an official controller, the version with the convertible d-pad. For some reason, it will not stay powered on if I use a battery pack. I'm using the AA battery packs and my rechargeable batteries are fully topped up. Note that I have not tried my rechargeable battery packs as they are all dead and I'm too lazy to dig out the charger.


Everytime I turn on the controller, it lights up for a split second and then dies. If the console is off, it seems to stay on for a couple seconds before turning off which is weird. It works just fine if I cable it.  Any idea what's up?

The good ol xbox 360 controller


Stick some tin foil between the top or bottom of each battery and the controllers contacts
