There is probably something stuck under one of the analogue sticks or the crosshatch button. Like a hair or crumbs for example. You could try and open up the controller and clean the internal parts that control movement. However, be very carefull if you do this as there are parts that can fall out and be very difficult to put back in place. If after this the controller still banks to the right you will need a new controller.
Well, it's simple. what kind of controller do you have, and how old is it? the 2 Sony six axis controllers i bought with my ps3 had buttons that stopped working on them. so it is possible if it is an old controller that the sixaxis just simply "went out" BUT when psn does go back up tomorrow download the little big planet demo or pop the game in if you already have it. it uses the sixaxis to move their heads. GTA4 also has sixaxis parts to it. and you can access that in the phone menu while playing the game. But you might just have to buy another controller if yours isn't working. Hope it helps!
Normally, any time you push the PS button on the sixaxis, and it's NOT synced, it should always go into syncing mode where you see the lights start to flash. All sixaxises should work like this. If you happen to have a ds3 it might work different, I don't know about those.
It's possible that it may not be charged up enough to do the syncing wirelessly, even though it can send the start-up signal. Try experimenting by charging it up fully, then seeing if it will start and auto-sync.
After you connect the usb cable and it syncs, can you disconnect the cable, and have the controller still work? If not, I would suspect a defective or loose battery, which can be easily fixed by opening the controller and securing the battery wire's connector plug, or replacing it.
If it will still work after you re-detach the usb cable, it sounds more like some defect in the controller itself. Could be you would need a new one to fix it.
I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
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.
No, it's not possible to hook up sixaxis to PS2. Sixaxis is a part of DualShock 3 for PS3 which is an optional feature in the PS3 games. Playstation 2 controllers run off of DualShock 2. So sorry, but you're gonna need a PS3 for that.
First of all I don't believe the PS3 controller is recommended for use on a computer, lol. And the sixaxis may mess it up in the first place. You need to go get you a COMPUTER CONTROLLER, like a logitech or something. Soi you can play on a right controller. Also make sure your PS3 controller is properly managed on the laptop.
Your controller is most likely exhibiting a hardware failure. Taking apart the device voids your warranty. When a button does not work anymore, it is safe to say that you will need to buy a new controller.
The Logitech Chillstream Gamepad is only $20 and works in the same fashion as the XBOX 360 Controller (uses the same xb360 XInput controller driver too!)
