Problems with the Micro-USB port on my PS3 controller

Basically what it comes down to is the micro-usb port on my ps3 controller is loose. When I plug in my usb cord (the one that came with my ps3, and also a few others i have tried) it wiggles around in the port. If I get it to sit JUUUST right i can get a connection and charge it, but since this problem has slowly been getting worse the battery on my controller is starting to hold less and less charge. So I have 2 questions I guess: 1. How can i fix the micro-usb port on my ps3 controller, if you can link a video or detailed guide that would be great. 2. Can the battery be fixed, if not where can I order a new one.

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.

Charging port loose.no longer charging on my tmax tablet


Try a different Micro-USB cable. It is usually caused by the cable's micro-USB end being loose and not the tablet's charging port. Most smartphones these days use Micro-USB so you can usually try using one of those if you have one.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

This is a common problem Sony basically will not support and will make you buy a new system. The pins for the USB ports are made so cheaply you can't even find a replacement from anywhere except Sony...

There is only one way to make this work:

1. Turn off PS3
2. Plug in controller to USB port
3. Turn on PS3

My PS3 won't reconize any of my controllers, putting the cable in works, it find the controller, but when I unplug te cable the lights start blinking again and I can't use the controller, what to do?


Hmmm. It sounds like either your PS3's Bluetooth controller is on the fritz, or all of your controllers are on the fritz. Since I doubt ALL of your controllers are malfunctioning, I am betting it's your PS3. I suggest having a friend with a working controller stop by and test his controller against your PS3. IF your friend's controller works, then you know that the PS3's Bluetooth controller is working.

Second step is to check to see if the USB cable is transmitting a trickle charge to the controller. Again, using your friend's controller (make sure he brings his own USB cable with him), try charging his controller with HIS cable first. If after 10 minutes of playing with the controller plugged into the PS3 via USB, you unplug it and the controller still works, then the problem is most likely your own USB cable (it's apparently damaged in some way). Now run down the controller's battery and try recharging it with YOUR USB cable. If it fails to charge, then you know that all you need is a new cable. Just in case, make sure you test EACH of your USB ports. A simple replacement will cost you around $10.

Otherwise, your PS3's UBS port(s) are not properly working and you should send in your PS3 for repairs. As stated above, test each of the USB ports on your PS3. My 60GB one has 4 USB ports, so I would test all 4 of them before sending in the PS3. Then, if you want it repaired, make notes of which port(s) is(are) malfunctioning and send it to an authorized PS3 repair center.

Problems connecting a ps3 controller


Here's how to connect it tou your ps3. Mine works perfectly guys.

1. Turn your ps3 off without the USB key given with the controller
2. Make sure your controller is off.
3. Turn on the ps3
4. Turn on the controller
5. Press on the sync. button of your controller.
6. Plug the USB key into one of your ps3's port
7. When the light above your controller starting to flash slower, just pess the home button and your controller will be sync.

You can't turn on the ps3 with this controller. So turn it on manually than press the home button of the controller to turn the controller on.

If my post doesn't solve your problem, I really don't know how to solve it. I managed to connect mine so I hope it'll be the same for you!

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
