Rock Cand controller for ps3 stopped working


Hi. Not sure what you could do. Turn your ps3 on manually so no controller is connected. Now hold your playstation home button for at least 30 seconds and it should start to flash and sync with your ps3.If not have a look if there is a reset button on the controller. There is normally a small pin hole on them which allows you to do this. Let me know what fixes your problem. Thanks

Ps3 controller won't sync after i restored the setting, i've tried everything including resetting the controller and still nothing. anyone with any ideas as to what i can try next?


You need to make sure the controller is connected to the PS3 via the USB cable. Then hit PS button in the middle of the controller to complete the sync.

Ps3 controller will not steer Motorstorm Pacific Rift anymore


Give this hard reset a shot.

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

Controller and consolle


You can try hard resetting the controller.

You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

I've read that not allowing the controller to die will help prevent this, so try and keep your controller charged 16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
If that doesn't work, another issue might be your cell phone and bluetooth headset (especially if you have the headset also connected to your PS3). Try turning off the headset, or if you use the headset on your PS3 as well as your phone, turn off your phone's bluetooth adapter. I was having this issue when I was using my Plantronics headset with my PS3 and cell phone.


Got this info from Kaivarri.

Let me know if that helps, if not let me know and I'll give you some more tips. Please don't forget to rate.

Thanks!

Cant get hdmi for ps3 to work on my jvc hd 52g887


Had same problem with Panasonic PT60LC14 tv when connecting by HDMI cord to my PS3 and a blue ray disc was playing. First, read your tv manual to see what video inputs it supports . Then read the PS3 online manual (section on "video output settings").

For me I found out that my tv only supported 1080i (along with 480i/p, 780p) and the ps3 manual says blue ray outputs 1080p, so my blue ray discs will not play on my tv according to the PS3 manual. PS3 manual says to restart the ps3 (power off, then power on and HOLD for 5 seconds) - then the standard video output settings should be reset. Hopefully the ps3 menu will pop up at least. I haven't tried this yet but if it doesn't work, i'll may try to reset PS3 video out settings manually first using another tv that works with it ..
