Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

Ok so when i turn on my ps3 i see Connect the controller using a USB cable So connects but nothing that even tried to reset the pad, and also nothing that I bought 3 extra cable and an additional pad...


When you are charging your controller, have you tried pressing the ps button, (circular button in the middle) on your controller to synchronise controller to ps3. When charging are you seeing the red light flash to indicate charging?

Hope this helps.

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.

    Power to controler


    Well the Power Button is the PS Button right in the middle of the controller. Or you need to charge it if it's Wireless. While your PS3 is on, connect the USB charger from the controller to one of the USB plug-ins on the PS3 and it will start to charge.

    Ps3 controllers wont charge or hold charge so in the middle of a game there is not charge left in controllers. Hardly charge up at all


    Have you tried Connecting them to your computer and seeing if they charge.
    It might be a problem with your PS3 Usb port.
    Otherwise you can try resetting your controller by holding down the reset button on the back for 5 secs.

    I can't use my wireless controllers on my PS3 unless their plugged in and charging. When I unplug them and push the PS3 button in the middle, all four lights just blink about 4 or 5 times and then turn...


    plug in the controller before you turn on your ps3 then turn on the ps3 by the system. after the system starts press the ps button on the controller after it stops blinking and only one light is on unplug it. it should be linked together.

    XBox 360 wireless controller won't connect or charge


    Guys, you really need to calm down... I have the same problem like you.

    I'll tell you step by step why the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller won't work.

    1. The controller will automatically disconnect during the gameplay, and the charging kit won't charge.

    Solution: This is true what I'm saying now... Where you guys brought your wireless controllers in the stores, there was a Frequently Asked Questions book inside the kit. It told you about the importance of the charging of your wireless controller, because Microsoft informed that it's VERY important to empty your battery before charging it, because the charging kit will no longer charge your battery, and the same thing happened to me. So, if you have any questions of your wireless controller, then contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. I'll give you new information how to fix your wireless controller.

    Ps3 controller issues


    Have you charged the controllers in a while. The controler might just be running out of energy to work.
