We contacted Sony and they asked us to send the console back to them to be checked out. It is still under warranty, so that is what we will do. I was hoping that if there was something we could do here to trouble shoot the problem we could avoid that, but this appears to be the best course of action.

Sync ps3


Does the controller light up when plugged in? If so an previous update may have messed it up. If not it could be the controller or the usb port. Try another USB port or another controller. If neither one of those solutions work. Try to delete the previous update, and reupdate the console. Most likely it is the controller or the usb port is broken.

My USB ports both don't work they stopped working and I tried to restore my PS3 to factory setting and that popped up I can not sync because o the messed up ports money is extremely tight and can't af


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

USB should work if something is in upon bootup, if this does not solve your problem I hate to break it to you, but a new PS3 it is my friend...

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

I have a logitech ps3 controller that is wireless. i plug in the usb into a usb port on the playstation and it still does not work. how do i fix this?


A couple possible issues here.
The first is that the batteries on your controller are dead. You may want to try changing them to see if that fixes your problem.
The second is that your USB receiver may not be seated properly or the port on your PS3 may not be working with the USB receiver. Try a few different ports to see if that changes anything.
The third is that you have a hardware failure in either your controller or USB receiver. If that's the case then you'll need to get a replacement from Logitech.

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.

Microphone not working on ps3 w two connections


you should be able to plug each mic into a usb port. (they are the holes on the front of the machine) they each need to be plugged in separately. If this doesn't work there may be a problem with the usb port.

PS3 USB ports won't work


All I could say is have a person who is really smart with technology take your Ps3 aapart and check the diodes on your fuse board (green plate that has a buncha little things on it). check to see if your diodes could be burnt or possobly loose. unless you can take it apart but have troubles putting it back together i wouldent try it. have a really smart person fix it. not a scientist or some guy from a company...justi make sure they no wat they are doing. I messed up my USBs by having a short in my keyboard. it tells me to plug in my controler but It wont read my controlers. theres a 92% chance its somthing wrong with my USB ports. I hope this helps you out.
