The problem can be in 3 places. the ps3, the controller, or the cord. get a camera cord that lets you move pics to your computer and charge it with that. ask a frriend to charge your controller with their ps3, or try a new controller.

Hi eveyone i have a ps3 and a Logitech wireless controller but won't connect to the ps3 please help


If there is a USB cable /charging port plug into PS3. If this doesn't have a USB cable /charging cable using your other ps3 controller turn ps3 on, scroll over to the settings, manage blue tooth accessories, turn controller on in discovery mode , and follow steps on screen to pair your PS3 and controller

Ps3 pad does not connect to the console


Hello,

The problem you described seems to come from your ps3 game controller (pad). You can try a different one and see if it works.

If the game pad is charging, the ports are ok.

Hope it helps

Ps3 controller charging failed


ok, either your charger for the ps3 is broken...or,it cant read(know)the cord is there. you may have dust or something clogged up. i know cause it happend to my ps2...i blew into the slot where the controller goes ( although u need to blow into the charger where u plug it in. if it doesent work... then u may need to either try a different usb plug or controller and see how it goes...OR take the controller and charger to a friends house if they have a ps3 and see if it works on theirs..if it vworks on theirs...then the thing where u plug the charger in at on the ps3 is probably broken or clogged up with dust
...if it doesent work on theirs than your usb plugs are brokn...

My 1 month old dualshock3 controller goes crazy and does the wrong action. Sometimes it works correctly only if i connect my usb charger halfway in, thats crazy...


You may have to download a system upgrade for your ps3, It should download automatically if your ps3 is on-line, failing this reset controller and fully charge before using, The "usb charger halfway in" i don't know how you would fix this, sorry.

My PS3 wireless controller works fine, except for the fact the it has a delayed reaction to every movement I make it do. If I move the joy-stick left 1.5 seconds later the same appears on the television....


It sounds to me like there is a noteable delay due to a combination of things: your Bluetooth wireless controler (primary reason), and the cable connection from your PS3 to your TV. Now, to determine what the problem is specifically, you'll need to check a few things:

1. Make sure your PS3 is updated to the latest software

2. Check to make sure your cable connections from your PS3 to your TV are firmly in place. I personally have noticed that I got delayed reactions when my HDMI cable was not firmly secured to my HD TV. Weird, but as soon as I unplugged and re-plugged in the cable at both the TV end and the PS3 end, it cleared things up for me. If that does NOT work (btw, this can also be the case if you use a composite or component set up too).

3. Check to make sure that your PS3 controller is fully charged. Controllers that are partially charged occasionally do demonstrate really weird results, like the delay you're talking about. So, make sure that your PS3 controller is fully charged.

4. If the controller is fully charged AND your PS3 to TV cable is plugged in properly, then try to plug the USB cable to connect your PS3 controller to your PS3. Sometimes, for reasons I don't know about yet, this could solve the delay problem.

I cannot get my Orb bluetooth headset to work. and yes before you say it im not a dohnut i did follow the instructions as they are put out but when scanning for bluetooth devices on my ps3 it scans...


i figured it out!!! you have to do the Scanning firstly then when you are asked to hold down the P button for 5 seconds and it turns RED immediately open the microphone whilst it is still RED and it will work (hopefully) then it will be registered with your ps3! (hopefully)

Good luck :)
