Gioteck vx1 wireless controller will not pair up to my ps3


This works: Turn ps3 on. Plug the controller into the usb cable and into ps3. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. After a short time the dongle will flash quickly (this means it's in pairing mode - when the dongle flashes slowly it's too late). Press the PS/Home button as soon as you see the dongle fast flashing. All the LED's on the controller will begin to flash and after a short time one (or two) will remain solid. Immediately disconnect the charging usb lead from the controller and again the LED's will flash, push the PS/Home button again and after a short time one or two will remain solid. The controller should now be working. If the controller fails to respond repeat this process but make sure that you disconnect the dongle and reinsert (so you can see the fast flashing lights and try again).

I have a PS3 and when i turn on my controller it works wirelessly but when i go to plug it into the system it wont charge( the lights wont even blink), i tried resetting the controllers, turning the system...


Check that the batteries in the controller are rechargeable, as some consoles that you can buy come with different things depending on the bundle you choose. I don't have a ps3 but I do have an xbox 360 and the bundle I chose did not come with a charger kit or rechargeable batteries. If they are rechargeable batteries have you tried them in a different ps3 controller to see if they will charge then?

Ive just bought a ps3. It powers up fine but it isnt coming up on the screen. My tv isnt one of those new models (a crown tv). Pleez help!


Try this: Power off the ps3 (red light) then hold down the power button until you hear 2 beeps and let go. that should work, you just needed to reset the ps3 to work on your tv.

My ps3 controller won't turn on


Try plugging it in and syncing it up to the ps3 again by hitting the ps button circle button center of the controller.

If that dont work and it isnt charging assume the battery is dead or your usb cable is no good. And you will need to replace which ever is bad.

You may have to get another ps3 controller the battery in the inside might have smashed because of throwing it on the ground or just breaking it.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.

Sony ps3 an samsung tv


Well your PS3 Can't connect with your TV to the Samsung, because PS3 Was made HD Blu-Ray. If your TV/Samsung is not supported by High Def. or Blu-Ray, it will not work, you will need a different HDMI Cable, and it should work fine.
Hope this Helped.
