How to install Polaroid Wireless Controller to a ps3

  • Power on the console either using the power button on the front, or by holding down the PS button on your first controller. On the top edge of your main controller, you should be able to see a single red LED flashing beneath the number "1." this indicates that the controller has paired with the console as the primary controller. In any multiplayer games you start, this controller will always be assigned to "Player 1"

    Connect a second controller via the USB cable. Plug the larger end into the port on the front of the console and the small connector into the top of the controller. Check that all four lights are flashing, indicating that the controller is charging. It's advisable to let the new controller charge for as long as is practically possible; its rechargeable battery will have a longer lifespan if it is fully charged to begin with.

    Press the PS button on the second controller and the red LED under "2" should illuminate. This controller is now paired with your console. You can continue charging the controller and use it to play or disconnect the cable and use it wirelessly.

    Sony play 3 wirerless controller brand new turn it on and just four lights blink?for about 3 minutes then shuts off

    Hi there. To fix this you will need to register your new controller with your PS3.

    Do the following:

    Connect your New PS3 controller to the PS3 with the USB cable. Followed by the PS button on the new controller. This should send the driver to the PS3 so that it recognizes that you have a new controller.

    I have purchased a new Dr Who sonic Screwdriver wii controller, unfortunately the instructions were thrown out with the packaging and i am having trouble charging it. I have it currently connected via usb...

    Hi, Here is the relevant text as found in the instructions:"Plug the mini USB end of the supplied USB charge cable to the charge socket on the Sonic Screwdriver Remote Controller (SSRC) and other end [ their error, not mine -KP ] of the charge cable to the Wii console. A red LED charge indicator is on when charging. When the battery is fully charged, the red LED automatically turns off. Charge time is between 2 to 3 hours and a fully charged battery has between 6 to 12 hours of playtime.""The Wii Console must be ON for the SSRC to be able to recharge its battery. It will not recharge when the Wii Console is OFF or in Stand-by Mode."" Charging : LED lights up"" Full charge : LED goes out"Hope this works for you. Keith Pyne

    My PS3 won't reconize any of my controllers, putting the cable in works, it find the controller, but when I unplug te cable the lights start blinking again and I can't use the controller, what to do?

    Hmmm. It sounds like either your PS3's Bluetooth controller is on the fritz, or all of your controllers are on the fritz. Since I doubt ALL of your controllers are malfunctioning, I am betting it's your PS3. I suggest having a friend with a working controller stop by and test his controller against your PS3. IF your friend's controller works, then you know that the PS3's Bluetooth controller is working.

    Second step is to check to see if the USB cable is transmitting a trickle charge to the controller. Again, using your friend's controller (make sure he brings his own USB cable with him), try charging his controller with HIS cable first. If after 10 minutes of playing with the controller plugged into the PS3 via USB, you unplug it and the controller still works, then the problem is most likely your own USB cable (it's apparently damaged in some way). Now run down the controller's battery and try recharging it with YOUR USB cable. If it fails to charge, then you know that all you need is a new cable. Just in case, make sure you test EACH of your USB ports. A simple replacement will cost you around $10.

    Otherwise, your PS3's UBS port(s) are not properly working and you should send in your PS3 for repairs. As stated above, test each of the USB ports on your PS3. My 60GB one has 4 USB ports, so I would test all 4 of them before sending in the PS3. Then, if you want it repaired, make notes of which port(s) is(are) malfunctioning and send it to an authorized PS3 repair center.

    My controller just keeps blinking when I try to turn my playstation on and when I press the on button on the console nothing shows on the TV what should I do?

    sound like it may not be connecting.

    try this if it doesn't work for you write back. Otherwise be kind and leave a positive rating for my help.

    try this:

    1-Press the tiny reset button on the back of the controller

    2-Plug in the USB Connection wire

    3-Restart Console

    4-When loaded, Press the PS Button

    5-Disconnect the USB wire

    Then it should have recognized the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you :)
    Also try new batteries or recharging the battery.
