Try syncing it with your ps3 while it is connected to the usb. If it still does not work, then contact paypal to get a refund.

Ps3 pad does not connect to the console


The problem you described seems to come from your ps3 game controller (pad). You can try a different one and see if it works.

If the game pad is charging, the ports are ok.

Hope it helps

My PS3 controller won't turn on. When I say that, I mean the lights don't even blink. It won't charge or turn on. Please help! I can't get a refund (well, I can but not for nearly as much as I bought it...

Same thing here. I DONT KNOW IFTHIS WILL WORK FOR YOU, BUT I...cleaned both ends of the usb cable with a Q-tip and a tiny bit of alcohol. Then i swabbed the female port of the controller. I NEVER TOUCHED THE PS3. i was asfraid of doing damage. Went back online for solution tips, 10 minutes later i realized my controller lights were blinking and charging again. Hope it works for you.

Ps3 controller wont work unless hooked up to the system

Not sure if this is the same as my issue but worth a try anyway. I had tried 2 duashock 3 controllers with our 80GB system. Neither would work unless plugged in. Reset, left plugged in for hours, nothing worked. Tried a different USB cable and worked right away. I let if charge for a few minutes and unplugged it, still worked. I did notice that when I was using the first USB cable that when I checked status of the controller (charge, controller assignment, etc) it had a "-" instead of showing a charging animation. Hope this helps.
