My playstation eye camera is not recognized by the ps3 and the red light isnt on only the blue light HELP

Hi,did you install the drivers of the eye camera that your using? I guess that's the problem.

When you install the drivers of the eye camera, it will make the system recognize the eye camera.

Hope that helps.

any further comment fill free to pass on.

Take care.

Hi. I connected the playstation eye to my ps3, and the blue led light is blinking on the camera. But when starting one of the games, it says no eye is recognized. I bought the playstation move starter...

I have the exact same problem. It worked for several hours and then suddenly I have this... litteraly after closing one game and going into another it just suddenly is no longer recognised by the PS3... yet the motion controller is recognising my movements to be able to move through menus... so surely this means the camera is working??

PS3 Blueray drive,, Both blue and red LED's work, but it will not read a blueray disk, At first it spins fine and looks good,, but then the disk slows down and the eye jumps back down, at this piont it...


If this solution am providing you now did not solve the problem, i will advice you format or get a new drive.

Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on with switch. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps. Your ps3 should automatically reset.

Take care.
