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.

Ps3 stopped reconizeing usb ports


Most common issue (assuming it hasn't been modded) is simply dirty connections. With the power off and unplugged (say saying to protect myself so someone doesn't get electrocuted), use compressed air to spray out thee ports. From there, dip q-tips in isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and gently clean the metal connections on both the PS3 and device that is being connected. There is a chance that one of the tiny metal connectors have broken off. If the other port is still working, you could pick up a hub which is a device that has one USB end that plugs into the PS3 but multiple input ports to allow multiple devices.

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...

Ps2 controller won't work with our new ps3


Of course, ps3 can not be used on the ps3 controller. Can not be mixed used.
Or you can dial the Sony service center for advance information, it's better.

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

Cant get the controller to work


is this the six axis? if so have you tried the reset button on the bottom of the controller? And does it work when plugged in to the usb port? if you have plugged it in and it still dosent work then its possible the controller is bad. If it does work when its plugged in then its the controller battery. if you try it without the usb and it just blinks 4 red lights then the PS3 isnt picking it up and could be a problem with the bluetooth reciever in the PS3.

My ps3 has a message saying (the maximum amount of power that can be supplied to usb device has been reached remove at least one device) what is the problem.. it does this when i have my controller hooked...


how many gigs is your PS3 and are you using a offical PS3 usb plug and is your controller a real PS3 Sony controller or one of those mad catz controller. If it is not the USB plug that came with the PS3 that could be one problem, if its not a real Sony PS3 controller that could be one and if your PS3 is less than 60gig dont play or watch any thing on it when you plug in the controller

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.
