If you can still play games with the USB cable connected to the controller and the console then the batteries inside the controller are dead and can't be charged anymore. You would need to replace the batteries, although getting a different new or used controller may be cheaper and less of a hassle. If you can't even play games with the cable connected try a known good USB cable and connect it to the console.

Can not get a iPod touch to charge. Is this iPod supported. Please help.

There is a fix for this. Unfortunately, the some ipods will function properly with the exception of charging. You can buy an adapter to fix this. You can find them on ebay. Go to ebay and do a search for "Scosche charging dock adapter" The adapter plugs into your charging dock and then the ipod plugs into it. They usually come in black or white. If you get the same color as your docking unit you wont even see it once its installed. This works...I have one : )

Pleas fix it ps3 remote

Try this First get a paper clip and push the reset button on the back of the controller while its plugged in to the PS3. The lights should blink, and it will re-pair with your PS3 if you still have it plugged in. It should start charging again and will stop blinking as usual when it's done.
ps3 controller battery is most likely bad or a bad usb port on controller.
Call sony see what they say.

When you push a button it just flashes at me and wont do anything else

What do you mean by flash? Sounds like the controls are whacked or its not fully charged, try reset hole on the back and charging 3-4 hours, if that doesnt work, its broke.
