Why won’t my controllers or USB ports work


My wireless controller will not sync with my console with or without USB connection. The synch button on my console doesn’t work either.  I purchased a corded controller to see if that would bypass the problem. I have tried all of the troubleshooting problems and have discovered that the USB ports and wireless/wired controller work after a hard shutdown. The problem is the second time I turn on my console it happens all over again.  So it seems unless I find a fix I have to hard kill my console every time which you can imagine is annoying given I can’t resume gaming where I left off and the boot time is MUCH longer. I can’t find anything that relates to my problem and the research I have done would make me believe Microsoft doesn’t support this kind of repair.
