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 Wii Remotes no longer sync up with the console. How do I remedy this problem?


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 located next to the SD memory slot)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hold down the 1 abd 2 buttons on the remote (or press the sync button located under the battery cover).

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

Try another controller with your wii or try your controller with a different wii. 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 wii and no other controllers work with your wii than there is a issue with your console.

If your wii is still under warranty I suggest contacting Nintendo directly.

If that doesn't work you may have an internal controller error and your best bet is too replace it.

Xbox 360 wireless controller not connecting.


it sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.
