You can try hard resetting the controller.

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw controller and consolle - ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

I've read that not allowing the controller to die will help prevent this, so try and keep your controller charged
If that doesn't work, another issue might be your cell phone and bluetooth headset (especially if you have the headset also connected to your PS3). Try turning off the headset, or if you use the headset on your PS3 as well as your phone, turn off your phone's bluetooth adapter. I was having this issue when I was using my Plantronics headset with my PS3 and cell phone.


Got this info from Kaivarri.

Let me know if that helps, if not let me know and I'll give you some more tips. Please don't forget to rate.

Thanks!

2nd controller not working


Hi,

Try this: Switch on controller 1 on, now hold down the PS button, now select Re-assign controllers and set this one as 1. Now turn it off.

Switch on controller 2 and do the same as above but Re-assign the controller as 2. Now power off.

They are both trying to grab the top spot at the same time.

If this doesn't work, connect that controller using the usb cable and do the same as above.

If the controller still has botth LED's lit when the usb cable is connected, then either the controller is faulty or the PS3 is at faulty and may have to but set back to factory defaults, do this first and if that doesn't sort it out then the controller is faulty.

Thanks

PS3 SETUP


Hi, This May help ?

You can change the controller port/number assignments. If the controller port/number is specified by the software, assign the appropriate controller port/number.*
Controller port 2-D cannot be assigned using the PS3 system.

You can check the current controller assignments by pressing the PS button on the controller.
