Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
This just started yesterday My new ps3 dulshock controller went dead so i charged it for about 4 hours, usually 30 min lets me play for a while so i figured it would be ok to use it again. well it wouldnt come on so i connected it and played for a bit. when i disconected it, it still would not come back on until i hooked it back up to the system. why is this happening? I've never had this issue before until i got the dualshock.
Not sure if this is the same as my issue but worth a try anyway. I had tried 2 duashock 3 controllers with our 80GB system. Neither would work unless plugged in. Reset, left plugged in for hours, nothing worked. Tried a different USB cable and worked right away. I let if charge for a few minutes and unplugged it, still worked. I did notice that when I was using the first USB cable that when I checked status of the controller (charge, controller assignment, etc) it had a "-" instead of showing a charging animation. Hope this helps.

I would say that the battery has gone on your controller. I have gone throught two allready, it just dosent hold charge any more. If you have a multi meter you can open the controller and see how mcuh power the battery has. Ebay has spare batteries
Let me know if this helps
