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").

I noticed that every time I buy new PS2 Dual Shock 2 it only last for 3 months because I play to much almost everyday then when I try to open the black wire of the dual shock the colored wires some...


Hi, This is happen because : 1. You may bought a non original controller. 2. You may always engage the vibration function. Sony dual stick controller ( analog stick) has fine cables inside controller. The imitation ones even smaller. While you use the vibration function for long time, it make some cables apart.
Suggestion :- Use only original dual stick controller ( analog stick). Don't engage vibration function for long time - I believe you can reconnect the wires inside controller ( so just fix it yourself) and play..

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!!!!

Need wireless controller with vibration mode


they don't have it. the dual shock 2 has it. but thats a ps2 controller. the dual shock 3 is a six axis controller, sony opted for six axis instead of vibration. if your lucky you may be able to find a setup to use a dual shock 2 setup to use with an wireless adapter for the ps3. good luck with that one though.

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.
