Hey there I have used a "SMALL" amount of baby powder, its non conductive so you dont have to worry about static...just rub a bit around the edges of the buttons depressing them as you go. Work it in and blow off the excess. Try that its a quick fix i have used in the past. anymore problems with it answer back. Hope it works for ya

Ps3 controller manual


You plug in the usb cable to charge the controller and connect it to the ps3 for the first time. You use the left analog stick to move around the dashboard when the ps3 is turned on and the 'X' button to change settings, go to the online browser, playstation store, or start a game. You can back out by pressing 'O' or holding the 'PS' button, which allows you to change a controller number (say controller #1 to #2 with two controllers), turn off the system or turn off the controller. Press (not hold) the controller to look around the dashboard while in a game and select say "Quit Game', or go into settings and change something around to your liking. Every game also comes with the controls and for what the buttons are. (Stick on left is the, "Left Analog Stick," right is "Right Analog Stick," from right to left starting at the green triangle shaped button is the, "Triangle," "Circle," "X," and "Square," buttons. The four buttons on the left going in all directions is the D-pad, and the triggers on the back going from the top left to bottom left and top right to bottom right are, "L1," "L2," "R1," "R2").

Ps3 controller triangle circle box and x buttons wont work


Was anything spilled on it? This is likely cause for buttons to stick or become unresponsive. Has the controller taken any major impact? I.E thrown at wall? If none of these, take a pin or paper clip, turn controller over, and gently push the reset button. I do not recommend taking controller apart, as springs for the triggers are easily broken and will void and legitimate repair done by Sony.

My Intec PS3 Turbo Shock Wireless Controller wont sync to my ps3. it is useless. i dont know what else to do. i have never dropped it. it was working fine one day and the next day it did not sync to my...


I've gotten mine to sync fine just follow the steps but press and hold the sync button for like 5-10 seconds. To be honest the best thing you should do is to refund it because mines already broke, cat knocked it over and now I have no vibration..... I've had it for less than a day, both analogue stick move by themselves in game which to me seems like the f*cking thing is demonic and sucks hardcore playing online.Also the sticks arent sensitive they'll jump over things when you move them and add the automoving analogue sticks that your constantly fighting with just makes things like hell Save your money for a higher grade model!!!!

Hi, I just put a 5mm LED inside my dualshock 3, behind the ps button, but now when I connect it to my ps3 the left analog stick is always pointing left. so on menus it will always scroll left. I dont know...


You just have to keep pushing down on the top of the stick and releasing it,like the PS2 had L3 and rolling it around.I get that with PS2 controller.I basically just go spastic on it for about 10 seconds and it stops.Do you know what I mean?Push down on the knob,not literally in the down direction.If you have questions,just reply.
Good luck!

X button on PS3 controller not working


Hey i bought my controller from gamestop brand new for 60$ and after 8 months same thing happend to me.
I think it happend because i tunrned the ps3 off incorrectly and i corrupted some data , i could fix that dat because the data corruped was those files for recognizion of the "X" button.
To restore it you will need a PS3 Dvd/Bluray controller to go the XMB and restore using that controller.

Husband has a ps2 controller that works when it feels like it


Sorry, I didn't quite understand the question, so are you actually using the wireless PS2 controller on the PS3?? Or it is for the PS2??
When i had a PS2, I brought a 'Logitech' controller for it and it worked well for about 6months, then after that the analogues started playing up and going funny. Same thing with the 'MadCats' PS2 contorller.
Now I have a PS3, and I just brought a new SONY PS3 Dual shock controller and works perfect. The logitech one is half the price, but i trust Sony more than other brands coz it is more reliable. I dunno if this helps, but if you're willing to spend abit more it's actually worth it.
You can check on eBay for an original PS2/3 controller which would cheaper than buying one in the stores.
Cheers~

Sixaxis controller turns left


The solution is simply to buy a new controller, or get a cheaper one like 'madcats' or 'Logitech' which is about half the price of the SONY brand.
But you need to consider this if buying a brand other than SONY;
it might not last as long maybe about 6 months-a year before it gets funny with the controls. Also, most of them needs a USB receiver and batteries for the controller to use wirelessly for PS3. Which I think is troublesome, cause you can't charge it like the SONY dual shocks, and have to spend more money for new batteries or rechargables. You also need to sacrafice a USB slot on the PS3 for the receiver to work wirelessly with the controller, and I have no idea what the response is like when playing games, it might not play as smoothly as the original SONY Dual Shock.

Triangle button sticking


Try a little rubbing alchahol on a Q-tip. do not drip in to controller, just rub around the button and press the button a few times. might have to do it a few times, let it dry before doing it again. It will break down what ever is sticky.
