If no other controllers or remotes linked to the PS3 are on at the moment then this sounds like an internal hardware issue with the PS3 remote. Has anything been spilled in it? Has it been dropped? It can happen with excessive use as well, but it sounds like it needs to be replaced unless you are comfortable working with the internal parts.

It sounds like some of the buttons are sticking or broken may be time to get a new controller unless you can somehow open it up and clean it out but that can be very destructive and break it more. Try a different controller to confirm that the problem is acutally the controller itself and not the settings. Have you calibrated the controller? Some controllers need to be calibrated do a web serch to see if you model of controller can be.

Why is my phone acting weird?

The keypad has to be taken apart to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. What kind of phone do you have? This only applies to a phone with regular buttons (no touch screen).

I just bought a ps3 and brought it home plugged it into my television and i cant figure out how to switch the channel to auxillary or whatever channel i need to be able to play my ps3 any suggestions?

If you are using the fron input jacks you need to press the [Game] button on your remote control. you can switch back when your done by pressing Vol. or Chan. buttons. If this doesn't help please let me know how you have it hooked up, I might be able to assist more. Also I have a copy of the owners manual If you need it.

I don't know how to put my ps3 to work on my telelvisoin without the original remote. ANY Advice?

The TV always have buttons on them somewhere that you can use to control your set, ALL TV's will work without a remote. Look for these 4 - 5 Buttons on the unit, on top, side under a flap, somewhere. Now by selecting the Menu, you use the others to step Up/Down, and another to "Select or Enter" please consult your manual. link below -

Number 1, Stay away from PS3 for right now as it is very unreliable., If you must, get a good warranty.

Fixing the PS2. Get a magnifying glass and bright flashlight and pick the dust, dirt and lint from the Lasers optical path. Also , you might see smudges ot scratches that restrict the optics. .
