Ps3 Controller turns off randomly

When I'm playing a game, any game, my controller will just turn off. I can turn it back on but it takes a few seconds to reconnect. Thats a big problem when i'm play online.

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

I have an 80gb ps3 that is backwards compatible. it plays ps1 and 3 games fine. It will load and run ps2 but it will not allow me to play


you have to push the ps button on the controller again after the system loads the video game, for some reason (i assume compatability issues) the system breaks connection with the controller when it loads the ps2 discs. If this doesnt help get back with me

Ps3 controller won't turn on...


hi..

Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&thread.id=3290911

but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY..

thank u

Controller moving automatically


Usually you have to disconnect the controller and plug it back in. The controllers calibrate to center when you plug it in. you must have had the stick to some other position than center when you turned it on.

Ps3 controller going nuts


Hi..
If it were mine..I'd get a ziplock bag big enough to put it in and soak the thing in 91% or better alcohol..Slosh it around a bit let it set for a few hours..drain it and let it dry out for a day or so.
Other than that..Buy a new/almost new one.

My PS3 keeps losing its signal between console and controller (it normally takes about 30mins) but either way it loses the signal and the only way to sort it out is to turn the PS3 off at the socket and...


I've had the same problem before, i believe what you have to do is.. recalibrate the controller, that helped, but i don't know if it'll work for you, now i don't have a bluetooth, so i couldn't help you with that.. also, it would help for you to turn off the controller during the movie.. or not interacting with the system as far as playing games..
