Controller Connection Malfunction

For some reason my 360 controller decides to disconnect, and yes i do press both buttons on the 360 and the controller to sync it and it reads it, and as soon as i press start 2 seconds later the controller loses connection, and it keeps on, it has happened a while back but had just stopped, and now started acting up again, and yes i checked the batteries, and ever switched controllers, but same thing, please help anyone?

Are you sitting far away from your X-box?

You could try re-syncing your controller to your xbox..

^^^This seems to be the same problem you're having.

I would recommend investing in a Play & Charge Kit. Instead of syncing it all the time, using the P&C Kit would simply automatically sync your controller to your console.

P&C's are about $20. It comes with a Rechargeable Battery and the Rechargeable USB Cable. You can find them cheaper on Amazon or eBay.

I wouldn't even bother calling MS, but if you want to, here's the number: 1-800-4MY-XBOX

With the P&C, you can easily sync any controller to any console. In your case, since you have problems syncing your controller, just use the P&C and you're good.

Just use it one time and you're good. It's better to have one just in case the syncing problem keeps reoccurring.
