PS3 pad start button doesnt work

Hi i just bought my PS3 5 days ago and have noticed on PES 2009 and GTA 4 the start button does not work.  
It is particularly frustrating as in PES the only time i need to use the start button is after a goal but for some reason i cannot press start to skip replays and continue with game.  Even after all replays have been shown, i still cannot press start button to resume game.
In GTA 4 I cannot pause game with start button which i could do 2 days ago, but have to press PS button to do that.
As i have 2 pads i thought the problem was the pad but it happens on both pads.
Please help me if you can
Cheers
Anthony

    Press and hold the PS button until the menu comes up. Select reassign controller option and select 1st position.

    The problem started for me after I had downloaded the 2.7 software patch. No solution yet, just have to wait for Sony to issue a new patch, I guess?

SOURCE: CONTROLLER PROBLEM

Try resetting your Controller. Using a paper clip, there is a small reset button on the underside of the SIXAXIS. Press it.

While your PS3 is still on, press the PS button on the controller.

SOURCE: ps3 will not turn on

Your playstation is oficially broken and needs to either be replaced or repaired. Sony will fix this problem for $150.00 through their website(under warranty its free). This problem happened because it overheated and the soder melted to the point where the componets shut down and the unit went into safe mode :( :(

How to set up yobo controllers for ps3


I just bought a used one today and took me a little while to get it to work. Plug the USB receiver in and turn on the PS3. Press the Mode button and the lights will flash repeatedly at a fast rate (it's searching for the receiver). When it finds the USB receiver, the lights will still flash, but slower than before. When they're doing this, press the mode button again, and that should be all that you have to do. You can also plug the receiver in USB slot one, the charge cable in slot 2, and do the steps to set it up to make it work while charging. (I tried taking the receiver out while charging, and the lights started flashing again so I guess the USB receiver has to be in at all times)
