If they work wired and not wirelessly then you might have a problem with your wireless access module. Can you access the internet through your PS3?

The wireless controller takes to much time to connect the ps3, i try with other controller and still the same, and i cant get to the net.


Seems like you might have an EFI (Elecromagnetic Interference) problem. Has this always happened or is it just starting to happen?
################## JUST STARTING
Have you entered any new electrical equipment to the area? If so, try removing that equipment and check to see if it works. If It does, you just simply can't have that device near the PS3. If it doesn't work still, try contacting sony via 1-800-345-7669 ##################
################## ALWAYS HAPPENED
You have a defective PS3 and should return it before the warranty runs out. ##################

I had to change my sky id and now my ps3 wont connect to the internet. also my ps3 controller both normal and the dvd remote have lost wireless connection and i cant get them to re-connect wirelessly


Sounds like you have corrupt data somewhere when you changed your id. The sky player is still new to PS3 and I still see complaints of problems its about 50-50. The only thing I can say to do is a system restore. NOTE: A system restore will delete your saved game data. I recommend backing up your machine onto a usb flash drive.

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

There should be a sync button on the top back side of the remote. It's a little pin hole that you hold in for a few seconds with the system on. Please let me know if you're having further issues.

Want to connect non wireless remote controls to console


No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped

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.
