Is the lithium ion battery connected? sometimes when reassembling the controller the red/black wire from the flat LI battery gets damaged. if you forced it shut, it will never work...all the plastic pieces towards the back (by the R1 L1 buttons) have to match up perfectly. it should close smoothly if correctly aligned

My left joystick keeps moving things down without me moving it


Sometimes your joystick on xbox controllers can become stuck. To fix this you can do one of two things. you can ether buy a can of air used to clean out computer keyboards and spray it inside the analog stick. Sometimes if that does not work you can also disassemble your controller with a t8 torc screwdriver. Ones disassembled use hot water on and below the analog stick to get rid of unwanted grim. This should fix the problem.

I just turned my ps3 system on and my controller seems to be pushing all the way to the right everytime i hit left(directional) it pushes back to the right like a fight i cant win :( i need help asap


Hi.

There is probably something stuck under one of the analogue sticks or the crosshatch button. Like a hair or crumbs for example.
You could try and open up the controller and clean the internal parts that control movement. However, be very carefull if you do this as there are parts that can fall out and be very difficult to put back in place.
If after this the controller still banks to the right you will need a new controller.




Regards.

Hi, the wireless controller, a sony dualshock 3 sixaxis, won't stop vibrating. Any solutions? thanks, Angela


If you've already removed the batteries and replaced them, then I think there is a small hole on the bottom you could stick a paper clip into an press a button to do a reset. You may have to re-sync the controller with the console after doing this. I don't have one of these, but I've heard of doing this before.

It only turns on to player3 . changed batteries but still stuck


is it sideways? or upright? cuz sometimes upright is not the correct way on it and sideways sometimes isnt either, but either way u should still keep it sideways cuz of air circulation.

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

Sixaxis controller turns left


The solution is simply to buy a new controller, or get a cheaper one like 'madcats' or 'Logitech' which is about half the price of the SONY brand.
But you need to consider this if buying a brand other than SONY;
it might not last as long maybe about 6 months-a year before it gets funny with the controls. Also, most of them needs a USB receiver and batteries for the controller to use wirelessly for PS3. Which I think is troublesome, cause you can't charge it like the SONY dual shocks, and have to spend more money for new batteries or rechargables. You also need to sacrafice a USB slot on the PS3 for the receiver to work wirelessly with the controller, and I have no idea what the response is like when playing games, it might not play as smoothly as the original SONY Dual Shock.

Sixaxis on ps2 ???


No, it's not possible to hook up sixaxis to PS2. Sixaxis is a part of DualShock 3 for PS3 which is an optional feature in the PS3 games. Playstation 2 controllers run off of DualShock 2. So sorry, but you're gonna need a PS3 for that.

PS3 Controller Problems


First of all I don't believe the PS3 controller is recommended for use on a computer, lol. And the sixaxis may mess it up in the first place. You need to go get you a COMPUTER CONTROLLER, like a logitech or something. Soi you can play on a right controller. Also make sure your PS3 controller is properly managed on the laptop.
