Have you tried a factory reset of the console?

How do you do that?

Apologies I thought it was an Xbox One you had. For the 360 you can only format the drive. Can you use the controllers if you plug in the charge cable?

You have to go and find a small button on the console which has two arrows that is to sync. Now find it on your controller and press the button at the same time. Then it should sync. But if your console is not turning on maybe youn have overheated it or maybe some wires are out.

Might not be the same issue but I have a good controller that wasn’t connecting to a 360 and the issue for me was the little board on the front of the console with the power button on it. Pretty easy to take apart and get at, you can buy the boards for like $4 to $5 used.
