    Brand new Xbox 360 Play and Charge won't charge or even turn the light on


    Since my last thread was locked and recently got the solution I will open a new thread. I bought 6 Batteries, sealed and brand new and the light won't turn on when I connect the battery and try to charge it. I know that they have been in the shelves maybe too long and the minimum charge required is not there anymore. Is there a way to kick start the battery or are they lost forever?

    :)

    Brand new Xbox 360 Play and Charge won't charge or even turn the light on

    Yes THERE IS A WAY

    Disclaimer: Do this at your own risk. This is only if your battery won't even make the light on the cable turn on (nor red, nor green). For The issue in which it turns red then immediately green and doesn't charge, please refer to youtube, there are videos on the topic and are rather simple to follow. THIS IS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ISSUE. If you don't know what positive and negative poles of electrical current are, DO NOT TRY THE SECOND SOLUTION,

    1. After leaving it connected 3 hours or so, try repeatedly connecting and disconnecting the cable from the controller and maybe it will eventually turn red and charge. I got 3 out of 6 brand new (but discharged) batteries working.

    2. This is the nuclear option: grab a portable car jumpstarter and "bite" with each clamp a metal paper-clip. You will need those for precision since you will touch the battery's pins with them. Face your battery in a way that you can read the "Microsoft" logo and be SURE it is not upside down. Now from left to right you will have to precisely touch with the tip of the POSITIVE Clip the SECOND golden contact and also touch with the NEGATIVE clip the FIFTH golden contact at the same time and for a split second. You will likely see a spark. Please, if you have shaky hands do not try this, you have to be absolutely steady and precisely touch what is indicated. After this connect the battery to the controller and then connect the cable to the controller and the Xbox. The light will blink once, leave it like that for 10 seconds and then disconnect and reconnect again "voila!" your Battery should be working! With this method I revived the remaining 3 batteries I bought.

    I used a 5 Volts 2A car jumpstarter with a Starting current of 300A and peak current 600A. It is a mini car jumpstarter Model BLY-JGL you can search for it on Google. I emphasize the fact that it was 5 VOLTS. I thin batteries are 1.5 volts. I wouldn't recommend using more than that (5).

    This is the original Reddit Thread and all Credits to user BlueberryNo3773 who initially gave a 9V battery as an idea and the info of which pins to touch. A Microsoft representative told me there was no way to jumpstart the battery... Well, he/she was wrong :D it felt just like jumpstarting my car battery. Cheers!

    As I said in the other thread, they don’t last on the shelf. 6-7 years ago there was some guy dumping Hello Kitty pink 360 batteries, every single one of them was bad and they were 3-4 years old. Purchasing new AA rechargeable batteries are a reliable way to get the same functionality.

    They are working like a charm. Trying them on PC and on the Xbox 360. Accurate Battery load Icon and all.

    thanks for the reply. The headset is the OEM Microsoft wireless headset for 360. I have tried charging both AC and USB. It begins to charge (flashing 1,2,3,4) and continues ti do so for roughly 20 minutes. Then all lights go dark and no more flashing. I
    dont see any error codes (1,1,2) indicating a charging problem. Even after sitting on charger for 24 hours i still cannot get the headset to turn on. This is brand new in the box...
