Re: problem with ps3 controller
Try hard resetting it by doing this:
Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw .
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 had just fixed my controller with that problem. Theres a tiny hole on the back of the controller. That is the reset button. Get something really small and thin so it can hit the button. Once done turn on your PS3 and plug up the controller with the usb connector. Once done press the PS button then it will start blinking and then assign a controller number
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
look on the bottom of your controller towards the top where the usb plugs in and you'll see a little hole.....use a pen or something small and press and hold that little button inside there for like 5-10 seconds....if it don't work...try holding it down longer. second try:
Connect controller to PS3 via USB lead.
Turn on the console (all lights flashing)
When at the "desk top" Press the PS button once
If all's well it should auto assign the the controller and you should only have one light flashing (indicating that its charging)
Eventually you will need a cord to charge it, if you push the PS button and the red lights flash it means that it has at least some charge.
With your PS3 turned on and at the main screen; look at the top of your controller where you see the numbers 1-4. Behind that (pretty much on the back top) you'll see a tiny pin hole. Get something to push the button in that hole when you hit the PS button and this will automatically sinc up your controller.
If this doesn't work, get a cable and connect the controller to the PS3 and push this button again.
I believe its a battery problem, as the ps3 signals are sent via bluetooth even when the cable is connected. The cable just supplies power. Try and get a new battery or if under warranty return the controller.
Here's how to connect it tou your ps3. Mine works perfectly guys.
1. Turn your ps3 off without the USB key given with the controller
2. Make sure your controller is off.
3. Turn on the ps3
4. Turn on the controller
5. Press on the sync. button of your controller.
6. Plug the USB key into one of your ps3's port
7. When the light above your controller starting to flash slower, just pess the home button and your controller will be sync.
You can't turn on the ps3 with this controller. So turn it on manually than press the home button of the controller to turn the controller on.
If my post doesn't solve your problem, I really don't know how to solve it. I managed to connect mine so I hope it'll be the same for you!
Sorry for my bad English folks! You know... french people =S
When you reset your PS3 and the system's light goes red and you hit the PS button your controller the four lights just flash? Is that right? The only time your controller will "connect is when you plug it in with USB?
Try this. Turn your PS3 on. Press the reset button on the back of your controller and hold it for a few seconds, then press the PS button to see if it connects then. If it doesn't you could try removing the internal battery from the controller and putting it back in. That might clear up any settings that were saved in it.
