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.

I'v recently bought a ps3 controller..i'v charged it..i go to press the middle button while ps3 is on..it flashes all its 4 lights and then turns off again? can anyone help me?


If it's new the controller needs to be synced. 1st plug your controller into the ps3 using the usb cable that came with the system. Then turn on the ps3 then turn on the controller.
Once the controller is recongnized hold the PS button and in the controller settings menu choose to turn off the controller.
Unplug the controller and it should be synced.

Ps3 controller going nuts


Hi..
If it were mine..I'd get a ziplock bag big enough to put it in and soak the thing in 91% or better alcohol..Slosh it around a bit let it set for a few hours..drain it and let it dry out for a day or so.
Other than that..Buy a new/almost new one.

Ps3 controller


I was having the same problem. Controller would only work when plugged in.
Solution: I shut down and unplugged the PS3 for several minutes. Plugged in the controller. Turned on the PS3 and let it boot up. Pressed the PS button on the controller and let it sink up. When I unplugged the controller it worked.
