Do you have the USB cable that connects the controller to the ps3, ( it looks like this: ) its used for charging if you're more familiar with that method.

First make sure the controller you want to connect is TURNED OFF, then simply connect the controller to the ps3 using the USB cable then press the PS button in the middle of your controller, it should work

My ps3 controller was just on my friend's playstation, but now it won't connect to mine and if i take it off the usb, the buttons stop flashing

Take a paper clip and flip your controller over. Theres a small reset button on the back near the top. Push it in and try to re sync to your ps3.

My pl-6309 wireless controller does not connect to my 160gb ps3 how can i get this to work.

You would need the USB charging cable that usually comes with remotes or PS3s. Its a standard USB on 1 side and mini plug on the other that would fit inside of the controller. With your TV and your PS3 on you plug the controller in and it should pair up to the PS3 with in a few seconds.

Everything but my ps3s will connect to my router. i have 2 lap tops and an xbox that connect but none of the 3 ps3s will connect

Make sure your wireless access point is in infrastructure mode. (Not AdHoc, computer to computer)
If you are attempting to use a cell phone as an access point, such as with WMWifiRouter, the PS3 will refuse to connect to it.

When i try to download a game it says 5 ps3s activated & it wont let me download plz tell me how to deactivate a ps3 without having access to the other ps3s

You can't, not without a lot of hacking. If you have 5 PS3's with that game already on each, use of them. If this game is being cirulated among your friends, quit being cheap and buy your own copy, then you can play it as much as you like on the PS3 you actually have access to all the time. If this is a game you bought, then you should be having this problem.
