I found the issue that helped me fix my controller the black button that's under the power button on your Xbox. you need to hit that while your controller is unplugged and plugged it back up should change color and work again

That's for wireless controllers

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.

I have rebooted my xbox multiple time and still get the same results

Majority of the time it's the USB port on the controller. These devices are plug and play. If this fixed your issue I'd imagine it's a rare issue. It's not like a wireless controller that needs to re-sync after using it on another console.

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.

This can happen too. I do have cords that have bad connections as well. Swap cords with a known good one and see if it works.

Controller is $@$*. Had it maybe one month, worked fine until today. Mid match lights shut off and all buttons register left on dpad. Rebooted Xbox, performed reset steps,changed usb plug and port. Controller won’t power up or function. Only the small white light above the Xbox button illuminates. Anyone have this issue? My guess is it’s done. Get what I pay for I guess. Pos

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've taken apart 3 different brands of Xbox One controllers. Microsoft's are way more reliable, although I never heard of stick drift until Xbox One. No problems with Sony sticks. Afterglow corded sticks are pretty good too. Their controller only had an issue with the USB port, which dumbfounded me why they just don't make these solid corded like oldschool game systems. I made my son's Afterglow controller solid cord and no issues since. Gamestop's brand is cheap crap from China that won't last a year. DO NOT buy these. Micro USB sucks period. Especially if kids are using them, but not as bad as an Apple lightning port. USB C is way better,… this is the way.

Same problem found it would flicker on and off once plugged in and if I pressed the Xbox home button it would turn on but I wouldn’t be able to use it noticed that the white light above the home button wasn’t on I tried a couple of the other suggestions here and found no luck but I think it’s probably to do with the age of mine I’ve had it for years but more practically i found my cable to be pretty stressed at the usb end I’ve only bent the cable in the other direction and it works fine but can only imagine that’s a temporary fix and I’ll eventually need to buy a new cable or find a replacement

Just an addition to this, when it says reboot the xbox, I do this : unplug the power lead for at least 10 seconds, plug back in (with the controller connected) and press the button on the front of the xbox. Do not touch the controller. This will reset the controller's link to the xbox. It does for me anyway.

The AfterGlow Prismatic Controllers are not durable. I had the same issue and spent a day trying to fix it, I couldn’t find anything that worked so I just contacted customer service support.pdp.com and got a replacement.
