Sounds like theres some sort of interference between your bluetooth controller and receiver. Something in your house, maybe another device may be interfering. However, there is an option you can try. Reset your settings/console to default and see if it fixes the problem. If you dont care for that idea and losing your settings you could always do this.
Shutdown your PS3, shut off the power completely too it by the rocker switch on the back. Wait a few minutes, then flip the rocker switch back to on, power up the ps3 with the bluetooth controller attached via the USB cable, once loaded, remove the controller and press the reset button on the back of the controller in, holding it for atleast 10 seconds, then release. If all goes well, the controller should resync with the ps3, you should be able to press the ps3 logo on the controller and see flashing lights followed by a solid. If this doesn't yield better connectivity, once again check your house for interference and if there is none. You may want to send it in to have the bluetooth/wireless combo board replaced. Or fix it yourself :)

I cannot connect to wii console with remotes


In case you don't know how to do this: 1) Open the small door in the front of the Wii, and next to the SD card slot is a red sync button. 2) Take the back off your Wiimote and on the button right is a small red button. 3) Press the button on the Wiimote then the button on the Wii, this should sync the controllers.

Now sometimes this doesn't work. It happens to almost everyone. All of a sudden the Wiimotes just loose to sync, but after a long period of time they start working again. From what I know there is nothing you can do about this. But here are some things that you can try:
1) Unplug your Wii then plug it back in. 2) Try new batteries in your Wiimotes. 3) Keep trying to sync the Wiimotes. 4) Try to sync them in someone else's Wii, and then yours.

Why can't my wireless controller find my xbox360? It was working fine a few hrs ago but now it's just blinking. I press both buttons at the same time and I have tried separate times WTF lol


I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above.

If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.

If your controller works with another xbox and no other controllers work with your xbox than there is a issue with your console.

For issues related to the xbox I would suggest contact xbox directly by calling 1800 my xbox.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

My wireless xbox 360 controller is turned on and connected, and when I am on the main screen of my game it works, but when I start playing I can't do a thing, including pressing start.


It sounds as if the xbox it self is locking up. If that is the case than you will need to contact Microsoft directly regarding the issue. I have also listed the steps to trouble shoot the controller as well.

1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above.

I cant get my controller to program to my ps3 we just bought it at gamestop and when we plug it in to the ps3 and try to program it the center button just keeps on lighting up and flashing


Normally, any time you push the PS button on the sixaxis, and it's NOT synced, it should always go into syncing mode where you see the lights start to flash. All sixaxises should work like this. If you happen to have a ds3 it might work different, I don't know about those.

It's possible that it may not be charged up enough to do the syncing wirelessly, even though it can send the start-up signal. Try experimenting by charging it up fully, then seeing if it will start and auto-sync.

After you connect the usb cable and it syncs, can you disconnect the cable, and have the controller still work? If not, I would suspect a defective or loose battery, which can be easily fixed by opening the controller and securing the battery wire's connector plug, or replacing it.

If it will still work after you re-detach the usb cable, it sounds more like some defect in the controller itself. Could be you would need a new one to fix it.
