Dualshock3 controller won't vibrate

Just got it today, charged it up for a couple hours. I noticed it wasn't vibrating during CoD4, system says vibrate is enabled. All buttons function, just no shock going on.

First you should turn off your ps3 and then take out your plug for safety resons. secondly shake your pad there is a reason but a weird one. third, get a pin look at the back of your pad and clik that tiny button. then put the charge wire in your pad put your ps3 on. wait 5 minutes that should work.

Hi I can't seem to get the controller to vibrate and my ps3 is saying the vibration is on but I don't feel it working


Try another controller that you know the vibration is working properly. If it works then you know the original controller is faulty. Those wireless controllers have a little motor that vibrates and they can go bad after alot of use, or if they get thrown around, etc.

My 1 month old dualshock3 controller goes crazy and does the wrong action. Sometimes it works correctly only if i connect my usb charger halfway in, thats crazy...


You may have to download a system upgrade for your ps3, It should download automatically if your ps3 is on-line, failing this reset controller and fully charge before using, The "usb charger halfway in" i don't know how you would fix this, sorry.

My ps3 pad will not stop vibrating even when i turn it of


Toggle the vibration function on the controller (turn if off then on again). You can do this by holding down the Playstation button in the center of your controller. Then select "Controller Settings" and switch the "Vibration Function" to off. Exit out and repeat the steps, but this time turning it on.

You could also try to reset the controller. There's a little button in the controller on the backside at the top; it's near the L2 button. You'll need a paper clip in order to reach it. Press it, then reconnect/re-pair your controller to the PS3 (you know, hook it up via USB then hit the Playstation button).

If there's still problems just let the battery drain; hopefully it'll be sorted out when you charge it back up.

Hope that helped!

My controller won't stop vibrating.


This could be one of two issues:

A) Your controller isn't real, was manufactured somewhere in China as a scam to get your money. You bought it off the Internet and got scammed.
B) If it's actually a Sony controller, it could be a hardware defect. It wouldn't just vibrate unless the PS3 Game told it to... If it's still vibrating, try letting the battery die completely, then plug it in. If it's still vibrating, call SCEA (1-800-345-7669).

Everytime I turn on my PS3 The controler vibrates


Go to "Accessory Settings", and then "Controller Vibration Function" - click on it, there will be "on/off"
That should prevent it, I don't think there is a specific option for disabling the vibration on startup only

Is it ok to charge my controller on laptop/pc


There isn;t a reason why you shouldn't charge using a laptop/pc, did a bit of resaearch and many people claim to be charging thier pads via a pc's usb,
I tried it on mine and it didn't work, it recognised the PS3 pad and installed it as a game controller, which was pretty cool but it wouldn't charge, haven't tried it on my mac yet . If it doesn't work first time try a diff. usb port on your laptop pc, as sometimes its certain usb ports on your system that carry enough juice to power a device
