PS3 wireless controller will not charge. Is there an internal battery?


There is an internal battery, but you would have to open the controller to access it and it is not easily replaceable. Try charging the controller using a usb port other than the ones on your PS3 and be sure to press the PS button after you have connected the controller.

My controllers wont sync to the ps3 or charge on it but they charge when i plug them into the PC. i had the "Maximum power reached" message thing plop up then my ps3 crashed and now they dont...


yea i have noticed my ps3 isn't charging stuff either it only does charge when its turned on im pretty sure theres a setting to charge while the ps3 is off To sync:
  • Connect the USB cable (provided with the controller) into the data USB port on the top of the controller. Insert the other end of the controller into one of the two USB ports on the front of the system.

  • Power on the television and the Sony PlayStation 3. You are going to see a series of lights flicker on the top of the wireless controller.
  • Press the PS3 button in the middle of the controller. This tells the gaming system it is connected. A single light appears on the controller.
  • Remove the gaming controller from the PS3. You can now use it wireless. It is also possible to remove the USB cable from the PlayStation if it is blocking your field of view.

    When my son tries to play his guitar all the lights are flashing on it and we cant figure out how to get it working..


    The flashing lights on the controller mean the guitar is not connecting to the wireless usb dongle connected to the PS3.

    1. Verify that the wireless box is plugged in firmly to the usb port on the front of the PS3.

    2. If that doesn't work, look on the wireless usb dongle for the guitar hero guitar controller. (It should be a black box with the guitar hero logo on it. You will find a small push button on the dongle. (Make sure your PS3 is turned on, though your guitar hero game does not have to be open. It may be a good idea to have the game running, so you can test your guitar or make sure it is really working). Press and hold the button on the wireless usb dongle for a few seconds. Five seconds should be enough. Doing this attempts to re-connect the dongle and the controller. You will know when the connection is good when the red lights on the controller go steady, as well as the LED on the small button you pressed on the wireless usb dongle. If either lights continue to blink, there is a connection problem still.

    3. Try changing the batteries in the guitar controller. Weak batteries tend to cause connection issues.

    4. Test the wireless usb dongle and controller with another PS3. This will rule out an issue with your PS3 system.

    5. If the problem still occurs on another PS3, the wireless dongle may have gone bad. (This does happen rarely.) Replacements are cheap to find on ebay

    How do you hook up a ps3 remote control to play games with the ps3 remote.


      1. Turn off your PS3 console and disconnect it from the power supply.

      2. 2

        Insert the USB cable provided with your console into an open contoller port. The controller ports are found on the left side of the front of the PS3.

      3. 3

        Insert the other end of the USB cable into the back of the wireless remote controller that you want to sync with the PS3.

      4. 4

        Reconnect the power supply to the PS3 and turn it on. The wireless remote control should sync automatically with your console. If it does not begin automatically, press the "PS" button at the center of your controller. This will begin the process. Once the sync is complete, you can disconnect the USB cable and the controller will communicate with your PS3.

    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.
