Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3

1 Answer

The lest analog stick is either not working or permanitly down.

When turned on either the D-pad or the left stick is always down. In FPS games this translates to constantly running backwards and in the opening menu it's always going down.
When trying to go up with the left stick nothing happens, also unresponsive to the left and right. D-pad works, but it always goes down.
If anyone can help, I appreciate it alot, thanks.

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").

On cod my logitech controller's control pad moves my player but i cant move with the left joystick (they have been switched somehow)


You have to go through the game settings and ensure that you have set the primary control to be done by the left analog stick. In other words, make sure that you have the left-analog stick as the tool to move your player around while playing the game.
Also, if that doesn't work, there is a possibility that your left-analog stick is somehow jammed and as a result doewsn't perform the right function.
This could be a factory fault or one that arose as a case of mis-management. Whatever your result is, kindly let me know.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using www.fixya.com

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!

The left analog stick stuck to the left


You need to recalibrate the the analog sticks. To do this you need to take out one of the two batteries then press and hold L1 and L2 at the same time. While holding L1 and L2 insert the battery you took out earlier. Now you can release the L1 & L2 and your analog sticks should be centered. Do not touch or move the analog sticks during this process. If this fails to recalibrate then repeat the procedure again.

Retro Nintendo 64 Controller by Retro-bit is not working properly


This is an old question but Ill answer it.

N64 controllers always need to remain still before the system starts or it will lean to one way. That means if you hold right it will continue to go right.

Slow down always does the pause button quickly, there's no way to use a controller to slow down a game. If its a pause screen it might be fine but if its 007 with a major menu change it doesn't work that well don't it?

Turbo normal works like this. Ether hold the button then press the turbo button, or hold the turbo button then press the button. Turbo works just like the slow down. It will continue to send the command to do A or B over and over.
