Why wont all ps3 controllers connect to my ps3


On the back of your PlayStation controller should be a little hole that is used for resetting the controller back to how it was out of the box. It should be to the right of where the screw is in the middle of your controller. Insert a paperclip or anything small enough to get in there and it will hit the reset button. From there plug in your controller into the PS3 and allow it to resync. PlayStation support.

Tip

Sync a ps3 controller to a diffrent ps3


<span> <li> <p>Using a PS3 controller charge cable (the cable that connects your controller to a USB port on a PS3), connect the PS3 controller to the console you wish to sync it with.With the cable still inserted, press the PS button in the center of the ps3 controller.The lights on the PS3 controller will flash for a moment, and then a controller number will be assigned to the new controller.Your PS3 controller is now synced to the console, and you can unplug the charge cable. Repeat these steps when you want to sync your controller with a different console.If you ever need to reset the Bluetooth connection of a PS3 controller entirely, locate the small pinhole on the back of the controller. By using a paper clip or other thin object to press the button inside this pinhole, you can reset your controller and its Bluetooth connection.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

Hi, I did a system reset on my PS3 and now none of my controllers will not sync to console, Iv tried resetting controllers also. Could you help please ?


Make sure the controllers are plugged into the PS3 for initial use. Are the red LED lights flashing/lit. If not the battery may be dead. Can you borrow a friend's controller to make sure the controller ports are working correctly?

I can't find the reset butonon my playstation 3 please. help.


PS3 does not have a reset button as far as I know. Although the PS3 controller does have the reset button on the underside. It's there if your controller lost its connection to the PS3.

If you want to change from HDMI to Scart you need to press and hold the power button while it's off, than a blue light will turn on on your ps3 and you can stop holding.

you have to reset your ps3 controller to sync to your ps3 consule. to do so you need: Small paper clip or cloths pin, ps3 controller *DUH* and glasses.

1. turn your ps3 consule off.
2. flip the ps3 controller upside down
3. Underneath close to the right hand corner where the thumbstick rest there will be a small [ ] <-square
4. in the center of the square there is a ( ) ,- circle
5. that circle is the reset botton
6. with the small pin or paper clip press the circle till the blinks stop *USUALL 5 TO 10 SECONDS*
7. turn only your consule back on and press the home botton to the controller you are trying to sync

**DO NOT TURN ON ANY OTHER CONTROLLER TILL THAT CONTROLLER IS FINALLY SYNC**

PS3 controller disconnects while playing games or watching DVD's. Have tried leaving it plugged into the usb port all the time - still disconnects. I then have to reboot the console to get the controller...


Check the controller settings under,

SETTINGS, Powe Save Settings, Controller Auto-Off

If that doesn't work try performing a hard reset on the controller like this:

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

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.
