My PS3 wireless controller does not come on

Hi. I"ve had my PS3 since July 08. All of a sudden, my wireless controller does not work at all. I tried plugging in the USB wire but my controlles still does not come on.

I tried hitting the reset button and still nothing.

I then purchased a new contoler, plugged it in, and nothing. No lights blinking, nothing.

    I bought a brand new Sony PS3 controller and that one doesn't work either. I plugged in the USB cable to the new controller, and nothing. Could the cable be defected?

My new wireless controlpad will not connect


I'm having the same problem... Only when I click my PS button, it flashes, normally. Then again, it's faint, and very, very fast, machine-gun-like flashing. And it's really annoying. Who knows how to fix this problem? I've tried resetting, there's no way to connect the controller with the console it's self, I've tried using the wire to connect it... No luck, nothing's happening. Please help?

hi do you have any other wireless devices near by as the only reference i can find is controllers disconnecting because of wireless interference from another device.

Turning on PS3 causes home wireless network to stop working


I have the same problem. My router is located about 1.5 feets from the PS3 and when I turn on the console my wireless network barely works. Something I did was change the frequency of the wireless. It was working in channel 9 and now it's on channel 3 with no problem.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network

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.
