My INTEC Turbo Shock 3 Controller is not working i asked my friend i followed to instructions it did not help please help as soon as possible Thanks Peter


I have the same problem. I disconnected the key, plugged the controller with its original cable. Turned the PS3 on, turning controller on, pressing Sync, connecting the key in PS3. At that state, the 4 leds start to flash slower as it detects the key. Problem is I can never connect to console. I mean I press Home and it never connects. Its been working fine before I updated PS3 to 3.5 version.

PS3 Freezes On The Wavy Lines


I had the same problem.

Whilst the machine is turned on, plug in the usb to the wireless controller and the PS3 should detect it and ask you to press the ps button (center of controller). Do this and you should get a menu, select RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS, and you will have to input time, date etc but it does get machine working again - previous data is lost and you may need to keep trying as machine took several attempts to detect wireless controller - just persevere!!! I tried pressing buttons etc, switching off but nothing else worked for me ... Hope this helps

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.
