Usb device fully charged


Try pressing and holding down the PS button and see if any menu comes up.

If noting then you will have to contact the controllers manufacture for further assistance. I believe at this point the controller is no longer functional.

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    THE CONROLLER INDICATOR PANEL DOES NOT SELECT A NUMBER E.G.1/2/3 OR 4 AND DOES NOT COMUNICATE WITH THE X BOX. Have tried another controler and this works ok and also tried charging the handset from the x...


    Try set setting a connection between the Xbox and the controller by pressing the small button on the front of the controller (between the LB and RB bumpers) and the small button on the front of the Xbox ( right next to the memory unit B slot.)

    Whenever i turn my controller on the options on the menu keep flickering so that i can't control it and the buttons don't work


    Be sure that your controller is fully charged. Alternatively, try connecting the controller directly to the PS3 with a USB cable.

    Como conectar el control


    To connect the controller first press the small connect button on the xbox itself. It will be left of the power button on the front of the xbox, the elite will have a round button on the older styles, otherwise the new slim version will have a square button. Then hit the button on the controller while the xbox lights are spinning in a circle to connect. This button is next to the charging port on the front of the controller and will be a small round button, about 3 mm wide.
    Let me know how this works out for you.

    MY controler wont turn on when fully charged and it does responed to the ps3


    At the back top of the remote behind the 4 red lights there is a tiny pin-hole. With your PS3 on, press the big PS button on your remote, then push the button inside this little hole; a pencil lead may work. This is the only time you need to do this.

    Good luck and please give me a good rating if i've helped you.

    Playstation 3...Battery in controller is low, plug in controller


    The dead give away for a dying controller is the red light on the numbers will flash.

    When you plug your controller in and hit your PS button, at the top you'll see a controller symbol and a battery icon. If the battery bars are moving then it's charging. When it's fully charged it will display 3 bars solid even when plugged in.

    I've been wrong before; but I'm 99% sure you cannot turn off the system and have the controller charge. As far as I know the system must be on while charging the controller. From my experience it takes about an hour or 2 to get it fully charged.

    Good luck and if i've helped you please give me 4 thumbs up!

    Respectfully,

    My controller turns on and it just shows a green circle


    try pressing the circle button on top of your controller right next to where you plug in your play and charge cable and you should see a little white button hold it and there is another one on your xbox right next to the second memory card slot. Press and hold that one to till both your xbox and controller start blinking and your controller should be fine
