Brian,

If after connecting to the USB it still won't work wireless, the best thing to do is this:

1 - Connect the controller to the PS3, via USB

2 - Click the PS Button to turn on the system

3 - On the XMB screen, click the PS Button again. You'll get the options, to "Turn off the controller". Do that and then turn it on again. It will reconnect with your PS3.

Regards,

Why wont all ps3 controllers connect to my ps3


On the back of your PlayStation controller should be a little hole that is used for resetting the controller back to how it was out of the box. It should be to the right of where the screw is in the middle of your controller. Insert a paperclip or anything small enough to get in there and it will hit the reset button. From there plug in your controller into the PS3 and allow it to resync. PlayStation support.

My ps3 controller wont connect. i hit the ps button and all 4 lights on controller start blinking. ps3 is hoked to tv with a hdmi cord and it says no signal.


Hey there,
You just need to sync your controller with your ps3. To do so, use the USB cable that plugs into the controller and into a usb port of your ps3.
You will then be able to start your ps3 and push that ps3 button on your controller, once the ps3 has started, and you'll be good to go.

Controller wont sync with the ps3. only


First make sure you are not too far from the PS3, if not, try plugging the controller into the USB port on the front, if still nothing, I don't know, try buying a new one.
