Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Wireless controller problem

Basically, i got a 'big ben interactive' mega pack when u bought the ps3. all that came with it was ps3 stand, a memory stick and the wireless controller (needs batteries, NO USB CABLE) when i turned it on, the four red lights flashed continuously, then just stopped. it wasnt controlling what was happening on the screen at all?! and to make matters worse, my wireless controller that came with the ps3 has gone crazy! the right analog stick is playing up-i cant control the view on games and on fifa, i cant control the players! ive tried charging it and resetting it, nothing helps! aargh!!

Its not a memory stick! its a radio reciever that you need with the controller.

The remote bundled along has a seperate one.

Just make sure the switch on the dongle is set to PS and not PC (as can be used on a pc aswell)

Contact the manufacturer by email and ask them if they will sell you a reciever seperately. If not, you will have to buy a new whole new controller.

I have a big ben interactive battery controller for the ps3 and i can't sync it with another ps3


Hi, i had this problem also. you have to plug in the usb receiver (looks like a usb storage that you would use for pc) into the front of pc, make sure you have batteries in controller. Turn it on and press home, red light will flash on usb receiver until controller is paired with it.
Hope this helps...

Take care

How do i connect a Big Ben Interactive PS3 controller to a PS3? It doesn't have an imput for the mini usb!!


I don't know exactly what is wrong because i don't own one. Try looking for a sync button ether on the controller or in the options section of your PS. I also thing that it is supposed to come with a input.

Cant connect a big ben interactive controller to a playstation 3


bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
'
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)
