Tbelow is a safety and security disaffix system in the 360 battery holder.

If you look at the battery polarity label, there is a square cutout in the centre through which you can check out a shiny steel contact. A plastic protrusion on the controller pushes this contact into an additional contact and completes the battery circuit. If the contacts are broken or corroded no power will pass.

To verify if the holder is the trouble, you can jerry rig a temporary test setup through tape and also a paperclip:

You may have actually scraped off the call pad. Try to use some white vinegar on q-tips aobtain to neutralize and clean off the corrosion, then isopropyl alcohol to give the other contacts an excellent clean. Then try using silicone grease (or petroleum jelly, yet it doesn't job-related as well) where you scraped off the contact and that need to at least allow a present.

I don't think I scraped anything off however quite I was unsuccessful at scraping anypoint off. Specifically the rust on the steel bit. Don't know what you mean by call pad, I will certainly try the white vinegar and also alcohol if I have actually it, not certain if i can silicone grease or petroleum jelly on hand also. If namong that works I'll look right into buying a brand-new cord.

The play and charge cable would power it without batteries.

I'm puzzled as soon as I search for cords what precisely I'm expected to obtain. Several of the cords look choose they're for charging battery packs or somepoint. What precisely is the cord you think I must buy? Thx
