Question about Sony BD Remote Control for Playstation 3

Open Question

Playstation 3 remote just stopped working

We thought that it needed to be hooked up to the charging wire to charge it and also, at the same time be able to use it but NOTHING happens. It just seems to be dead.

hey guys,

would like to give a suggestion...

have you ever tried using another battery? you should always have a spare battery. most probable cause for this is the battery and we will only know if the cause is the battery when you try another battery.

This could be any of a number of problems try these solutions one of which may work. If they all fail to work you can contact sony directly at

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps.

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.

Greetings... My remote does not charge. I have tried the following: - Buying new cable (did not help) - Buying new remote (cannot even charge it initially) Is the problem my ports?

it could be your ports or more likely your battery in the controller try a freinds controller and see if that charges ok if so i would guess its a fault with your battery.

My ps3 pad will not stop vibrating even when i turn it of

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.

Hope that helped!

When i try to turn the controller on, all four lights blink for awhile then turn off. but it won't turn my game on.

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.

Dualshock 3 battery is not charging

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.

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
