    I have the same problem but only sometimes. When I push the PS button on either my controller or remote nothing happens. I have to turn on the system by pushing the power button on the unit and then the system recognizes the remote and controller.

You have to open the battery cover on the controller and press the red button as well as open a small cover/door on the front of the Wii system and also press that red button. This will sync that controller to that specific Wii system. You will have to do this when ever you buy a new controller or try to use any of your controllers on a different console.

I purchased a playstation 2 console from ebay. The system boots up fine but when asked to push X the controller does not respond. I tried this with several games is it the controller?


Normally, when your console boots up fine and you want to issue a command from the controller and there is no response, this is as a result of a key from the controller. all you have to do is disassemble the controller, use a methylated spirit to clean up the soft controller rubber which the buttons rests on and re assemble it. your controller will work fine after this. i hope this helps.

PS3 wont boot the operating system, so wont stay switched on!


It doesn't happen to everyone, but just about.

The problem is most likely related to the GPU on the motherboard.

But let's find out for sure.

Try booting the PS3 with the hard drive removed.

Let me know what happens.
