Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3
With the USB cord?? Isn't this suppose to be a wireless controller? i tried resetting the controller.. But still wont work.. i went to my Playstation 3 controllers settings and set the controllers to there right settings.. still nothing.. any help from anybody would be helpful.. thanks.
Once the controller is plugged in and connected to the console, hold down the PS button to select "turn off the system." Once the system has completed shutting down, unplug the controller and press the PS button. The console should turn on. If so, the controller will connect wirelessly. Unfortunately you'll have to do this with each controller but it works every time.

Hi have the same problem where the controller has to be plugged in to work....but have managed to solve it by complete luck! when it is plugged in and connected hold the ps button down and take out the usb, keep the ps button held until the 1 red light stays on which means it is connected. although once you turn the ps3 off you will still have to turn it on by the power button on the ps3 and then repeat the process. hope this works for you guys!
