    Terrible! Tried these solutions with no luck. Really disappointed as it's probably something stupid to do with the USB signal device - odd it doesn't work with cable either, though. BTW, don't blame the retailers, they don't manufacture it! Tried Intec's website...too bad - no way of really contacting supposed "Customer Service". Best way to solve is to return, get money back, and alert others so they don't buy it. Did anyone notice there weren't any reviews on this on the buying sites? We need to review it there we can help our fellow gamers avoid this product!

I dun really know how I did it, I had the same problem as u guys. And I try all sorta method.

  1. the last method that I tried was to leave my USB receiver thing in and then restart my ps3. With my controller turned off.
  2. After the PS3 restarts, I turned on my controller.
  3. Then I pressed the home and link button together. And those 4 lights on ur controller will flash really fast.
  4. Then I replugged my USB receiver, and the controller light will flasher a lot slower.
  5. Then just press "home" and the controller should sync with your PS3.
  6. And after that NEVER remove ur USB. LOL. After that, everytime u turn on ur PS3 just press the home button and the controller should sync with ur PS3.
  7. And remember to always to turn on ur PS3 before u turn on your controller.
Well that's my solution, if it doesn't work for u then sorry. Get a refund. I was planning to get a refund but then everything luckily worked out. Good luck and keep trying.

Fixed - However, I had to call the people directly. Apparently a few updates that the PS3 has sent has knocked out alot of third party controllers, so intec has had to release a few different dongles(receivers for free) to work around the updates. Got mine in the mail today, works like a charm everytime! Great controller once you get it to work, feels great in the hands!

    Problem fixed! you have to get a new dongle(receiver), which will support the newer system updates, it'll work everytime like a charm after that. I got mine from them today, works like a charm, EVERYTIME. good controller, feels good in the hands, works great.

Intec wireless controller won't sync to my ps3 it is the infinite play controller can you help me

Had a similar problem with an official Sony Dual Shock 3 recently. Turns out the solution was a very small pin hole sized reset button on the back of the controller. Have a look and see if yours has something similar, then try connect the charging cable again and sync. Worked on the official one for me anyway :/
Best of luck!

I did exactly what the instructions said to do with the controller, I turned on the PS3, then plugged in the controller, turned it on, then puched the sync button, then plugged in the 2.4 wireless stick...

If the wireless remote has a USB plug, the remote has to be temporarily connected to the PS3 to physically sync. Once that is accomplished, the remote will always work.

Hi, i have lost the instructions on how to perform the controller link with my ps3. could you give me a step by step walkthrough? thanks (this is for the ps3 infinite play wireless controller)

It should be as easy as plugging in the controller to the PS3 unit by using the usb cord and then pressing the PS3 button on the controller. That's how the original controller works.

Good luck.

Infinite play wireless controller turbo

I believe that it's a typo. You can only use turbo on one button at a time. Try it.

Press and hold the Turbo button, and press the button you want to use turbo with. If it doesn't work, your controller could be faulty and you may have to return it.
