First you should turn off your ps3 and then take out your plug for safety resons. secondly shake your pad there is a reason but a weird one. third, get a pin look at the back of your pad and clik that tiny button. then put the charge wire in your pad put your ps3 on. wait 5 minutes that should work.
Toggle the vibration function on the controller (turn if off then on again). You can do this by holding down the Playstation button in the center of your controller. Then select "Controller Settings" and switch the "Vibration Function" to off. Exit out and repeat the steps, but this time turning it on.
You could also try to reset the controller. There's a little button in the controller on the backside at the top; it's near the L2 button. You'll need a paper clip in order to reach it. Press it, then reconnect/re-pair your controller to the PS3 (you know, hook it up via USB then hit the Playstation button).
If there's still problems just let the battery drain; hopefully it'll be sorted out when you charge it back up.
i suppose the rechargeable battery is dead or has done its lifespan and needs to be replaced.for how long have you been using the controller?2-4 years,if years this is definitely the problem.get an expert to help you replace it.hope this helps
you need to sync it with your system. turned of, plug it to your console. Then wait a couple of seconds and turn it on. Once the lights stod blinking and the ligh indicate the number of controller assigned, unplug it.
Have same issue. Contollers only 2 month old and stopped holding a charge. The controllers flash 'dead battery' when switched on, if I plug up the charge lead they flash to say charging, and after 10mins or so they stop flashing. But no charge in battery. both my controllers have been charged less than 10/15 times.
This fault seems to have come about after the latest system update?
I think you should contact Sony.
i had the same problem dude...i had to keep the USB cord plugged into the remote so it can work and it wouldn't work wirelessly but I researched and made a risk on spending only $9 to buy a new battery from ebay....and bam! fixed it myself...works as if nothing happened ;)
Though I am not entirely sure, spare controller charges should be sold at maybe a Walmart or a game store (Game Crazy, Game Stop, etc.) If not, try checking the Playstation website at www.playstation.com
