Cant pair bigben controller to ps3. Theres no where to put usb cable into it


Bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
'
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)

Hi, my ps3 was working fine then turned it on yesterday and there isnt any menu on the screen and the controllers dont work and when u put a game in nothing happens. regards mark


Hi Mark,

If you are getting the YLOD oryellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

Causes:

The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that takethe damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gamingagain.

Solution:

You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it foryou, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about$150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide thatwill show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

My Ps3 Wont Turn On It indicates on stand by mode(solid red light).i pressed the power button; it wont turn on and it doesnt work or even beeps. i also tried using the ps button on the contoller.same...


Hi Shiman,

Are you seeing any flashingred/yellow lights?

If so this is the red lighterror and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with allof the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they loseconnection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the redflashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and theywill fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and itwill also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heatbuild up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

I dropped my ps3 it works but when i turn it on the green light apperas then in two seconds i8t makes the reset noise then turns yellow then red. The red light then continues to flash. What do I do now


Hello

With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.

Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.

Now, the system restore screen will come up

You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming.

Good luck

Controller not working


I had the same problem, so I called customer service and had me do this:

1) with the USB cable plugged into the controller, power down the ps3 and turn the on/off switch in the back to "off".
2) hold your thumb down on the front button (where you normally can turn it on) while turning the switch on the back to "on" again. keep your thumb or finger on the front switch.
3) You will hear the normal "beep" that you usually hear when the PS3 boots up, but after a few seconds later, you will hear a secondary beep. Remove your thumb or finger after this second beep and the PS3 will reset itself after a few seconds. I have a projector connected to it, so I had to set the display screen back to HDMI afterwards, but when I disconnected the USB cable the controller worked wirelessly again. The customer service rep said that this allowed the controller to pair with the PS3 again. Note: You probably do not have to have the controller plugged into the USB cable at all while doing this. I just happened to have it plugged in. Hope this helps.

Red flashing light on ps3


When the light flashes red and you ALSO see the green light on too this indicates that the system is getting hot and you need to switch off and let it cool down.

if you switch on get the beeps see yellow light briefly then flashing red only this indicates failure.

The system has shut itself off to stop further damage ..... supposedly caused by getting hot .. maybe fan failed .... only thing that can be done is to contact Sony for repair or replacement.

I know this post is old but thought the info could help others ...... I hope you returned your PS3.
