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.

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

Hi our controllers wont charge on our playstation 3 console can you help


Are you charging it correctly? To charge the controller, you use the PS3 charge cable that should have come with the controller (it's a USB A to mini B cable). Plug the USB A end into any port on the PS3 console and plug the mini-USB B side into the PS3 controller. The controller will only charge if the console is on.

Are the USB slots on the PS3 busted? Try a different slot on the PS3 console, or try a known working controller/cable combination on the slot in question. Alternatively, you can use something that has a USB port on it to charge your controller (for example, a laptop or PC). Again you must make sure the device that is charging the controller is on.

If the problem was the PS3, you can send it in for repair (if under warranty, it's free; otherwise it's 150$ so it might be better to just deal with the broken USB port).

Maybe the cable is broken? Try another cable, if possible, with a USB slot and controller you know is working. If it is the cable you can get replacements for really cheap.

If you can confirm that it's none of the above, the problem is probably with the controller. The first thing you should try is resetting the controller. There's a small button on the back of the controller, near the L2 button. You'll need a paper clip, but just press that. Then try to use it/recharge it again.

If it still won't charge it's possible the controller is dead (as in the battery will no longer hold a charge). The best way to confirm this is to try and use your controller while it's plugged in (as if to charge it); if it works while plugged in, but stops when you unplug it then the battery has died. You can replace the battery yourself (there are instructions in the PS3 manual), or send in the controller to Sony for a replacement (assuming it's a first-party controller aka made by Sony). If you're under warranty it's free (first party peripherals are covered), otherwise they may still take it for a fee but I'm not sure.

Hope you're able to fix the problem!

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.

Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off.
Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that.
Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.

Succes.

PS3 USB cycles every 5 seconds??


Pack it up. Ship it back, even if you don't have a warrantee, and since its the original 60GB, you probably
do not. But, it's going to keep on doing this until you have corrected the misconfigured unit.

One thing you did not mention, is whether you have the latest updates, and if you don't, try that before
packing, IF your constantly disconnecting unit will allow you to do so.

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.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
