Sounds like your wireless board went bad. Call SONY if you still have warranty.
If not find a wireless board (I sell them sometimes on ebay). It is really easy to replace.
Contact me at bubulica2000@yahoo.com if interested in purchasing a wireless board.

Have you charged it? If you have plugged it in and no lights blink you may have a defective controller. If so check with Sony support/

I cant connect my guitar to the ps3


1. First of all, make sure the batteries are in the guitar.
2. With your PlayStation 3 console powered off, insert the wireless receiver into an available USB connector on the console.
3. Press and hold the PS button on the guitar to turn it on.
4. Turn on your PlayStation 3 console.
5. Press the connect button on the wireless receiver (not the guitar). The status light will flash, indicating that the receiver is searching for the controller.
6. Press the PS button on the guitar to establish a connection with the receiver. (You may have to wait for the receiver to stop flashing so fast. I think it flashes real fast at first, but then slows down.)

Also, make sure the guitar is assigned as control port #1.

I hope that helps.

PS3 Controller wont turn on?


mine sometimes does that, just try pushing and holding it until the options come up on the screen, then turn off controller. Then try turning it back on. If that doesn't work, turn the ps3 off when its done charging, then unplug it while its off. This should work.
