SOURCE: CONTROLLER PROBLEM
Try resetting your Controller. Using a paper clip, there is a small reset button on the underside of the SIXAXIS. Press it.
While your PS3 is still on, press the PS button on the controller.

Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

Sounds like the controller knows it belongs to the other PS3. It has already "paired" with one console, so that's why you're having a hard time trying to get it to pair with console #2, comprende?
Make sure console #1 is a "hard off", like switched in the back. Now flip your controller over & put a pencil or pen tip in the reset hole. ( Just to the right of the center screw hole.) NOW connect said controller with the USB to console #2. Hold the PS button for two seconds. All 4 lights will flash 5 times, then the 1 light should stay on, Boo-ya! You're PAIRED!

This is an issue since 3.10 update...MANY MANY people are having this problem. Try turning off console then turning console on by hand and waiting till its booted to turn on controller. eventually it will work, but its only a temporary fix, hopefully sony will respond to this problem soon
