SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE CONTROLS HOW DO I FIX


I'm guessing the issue is that the PS3 isn't responding to your controller input.

Ensure that the PS3 controller is actually on. You can turn on the controller by pressing the Playstation button in the center of the controller. There will be a red light on top of the controller indicating that it is on.

If no light shows up, it's possible that the controller simply has dead batteries. Grab your controller charge cable (should have been included with controller, looks like this) and connect the controller to the PS3 while the console is on. Give it a few minutes, then press the center Playstation button again and see if it responds.

It's also possible that the controller just isn't synced to your PS3. Again, grab the charge cable and connect it to your PS3 while it's on. Then press the Playstation button while the controller is connected. It should sync it to the PS3.

If none of that is working for you, there may be an issue with the controller itself. The easiest fix it to reset the controller. There should be a tiny button in a hole on the back of the controller. Just press it (you'll need a paperclip or something to do it) and the controller will reset. I believe you'll have to re-sync the controller (using the cable again).

You should also try syncing other controllers to your PS3 to make sure that the issue isn't with the PS3 itself (which would be awful; I've never heard a PS3 breaking like that but I suppose there is always a first). If other controllers work then either your controller's battery is dead or the controller is actually broken. I don't think Sony repairs/replaces controllers so you may have to buy a new one.

It may be worthwhile to checkout their support page first, to see if anything helps before shelling out 50$ for a controller:

Sony Support
Sony Repair
Amazon - PS3 Controllers (I recommend Silver; it's ****).

Hope it all works out!

My system turns off when i playing god of war 3 on ps3 it will shut of on me sometime for 1 hour r half and hour now 5 seconds once i log on it just turns off when i listenin to music r playing other games...


You may have it set to turn off after it has not been used for a certain time if it is turning off when you are not actually using it. The auto turn off is part of the settings menu and there is also an auto off for the controllers that will stop you from running the batteries down on the controllers when the system is turned off. If it is turning off randomly while you are playing you can try ask the question at the Playstation Support Network and find out whether it has happened to others. It could be an overheating, power off for protection from fire, system directed shut down If not try running it by itself off via the wall. So don't use your your powerboard rather run it direct from it's own socket. I had a similar issue where the powerboard was at fault.

Also keep any electronics away from it mainly our iphones, and since doing that I have not had any random shutdowns

I was playing a game and the ps3 just randomly shut off then the red light starts flashing and every time I turn it on it shuts off right away


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

My xbox 360 elite is randomly disconnecting itself from both of my controllers and the batteries are brand new and fully charged


Hello
If you replaced the batteries then you may need to re calibrate the controllers to the x box console.

Controllers will not turn on ps3 and it shuts off


I'd back up my game saves, if possible, and then perform a full system restore.

Let me know if you're able to do that, if not I'll suggest another method for fixing.

plug in the controller before you turn on your ps3 then turn on the ps3 by the system. after the system starts press the ps button on the controller after it stops blinking and only one light is on unplug it. it should be linked together.

Controllers not connecting when power is turned on


your connect might just be bad, try moving your ps3 to a different location, maybe a new tv, re-set the connection, your connection on your computers, or maybe your ps3 is just over heating.. which then you would have to send it in to sony =x good luck

Ps3 controller issues


Have you charged the controllers in a while. The controler might just be running out of energy to work.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
