My ps3 fat won't pick up any ps3 wireless controller; solution


Install your usb charger cord to the system, and the controller before you turn it on. Then after you turn on the system, use a small pin, or paper clip to hit the reset button on the bottom of the controller. This solution works for all PS3 types, not just the fats. All that use Bluetooth controllers. Good luck. ^^

360 wont recognize any disk put into the system


Clean the lens, it sounds like it has dust on it.

You can do this with a cheap cd cleaner, a cd with brushes on it.

I prefer the method of using a can of compressed air and an extension (red straw looking thing) on the can. If you open the tray and pull the power while it is open, you can gain access to the lens.

Wii console isnt working


Have you tired resetting the AC adapter? If not, then try this:


  1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
  2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
  3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

Not recognizing disk


My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Playstation 3 wireless controller


I had the same problem. If you plug into the system with the usb and then go to the settings menu - reassign the controller to number 2 then back to 1 and it should work. Worked for me anyway.

Good luck
