Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3
This controller is new and will not engage or sync with ps3 console. do u have any suggestions? it is fully charged and is a dualshock 3, sixaxis. Thank U!
On the back of the controller there is a very tiny rest button.
Press and hold for 5 seconds.
Then reconnect to PS3. It should work.
This fix came from Sony Tech Support.

Try changing the USB cable. I bought 2 new DS3 controllers and both wouldn't work until I tried a different cable. Both would work when plugged in, but quit immediately after unplugging.
