How do I sync Big ben wireless controller to ps3?

Bought big ben interactive wireless controller for ps3 in a mega pack from argos. Does anyone know how to sync this with my playstation 3? It has no usb connection on it only room for the 2 batteries and an on/off button. Everything else identical to the original ps3 controller.

    Hi, tried what you recommended but only the 1234 on the controller flash, The usb receiver is not flashing at all. Have tried the 2 usb ports. Maybe I just have a faulty receiver? Thanks for your help.

I have a big ben ps3 controller, and when i push the ps button the red lights just flashing and then turns off, it just wont connect to my ps3.. please help!


Welcome to Fixya. Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you

Rate me if it works so that i can help other people like you!

Thanks for using Fixya

The big ben balance board does not sync with wii.

Did you find a sync button under the battery cover? I mistook the big button for sync button. But the sync button is a small button under battary cover. Also the board should be not further than 1 meter from you Wii.

Cant getmy big ben remote controlto work with my playstation. how do you connect them?

Inside the user manual for the big ben should be an area describing how to put the remote into pairing mode. Do this first. Then on the PS3 under settings select accessory settings. Then select manage bluetooth. Then select register new device this will scan for bluetooth and should pick up the remote. then all you have to do is select use this device.

How do i connect a Big Ben Interactive PS3 controller to a PS3? It doesn't have an imput for the mini usb!!

I don't know exactly what is wrong because i don't own one. Try looking for a sync button ether on the controller or in the options section of your PS. I also thing that it is supposed to come with a input.
