Dual shock controller 3 for PS3 joystick needs repair

I've had the dual shock controller for 2 months and the rubber sleeve
over the joystick (L) has split and separated off. The sharp plastic cap
underneath is shreading my thumb. Ouch. Can this rubber sleave be purchased.

    I have the same problem. Don't want to buy a new controller just because of that, so I was wondering where I could buy just this rubber part.



    If you happen to know, please feel free to e-mail me :marcelobl@gmail.com



    Thank you!!!

Hi, I have 2 PS2 controllers, the one was newly bought, the other, has been used for about a year or two. The problem is, the old one's R1 button is unresponsive. Well, it do responds, but only if...


Hi there,
you will need a rubber replacement for your R1 button, if you or a friend have a defective joystick consider that a replacement. if you can't find a defective joystick you can buy a ps2 rubber kit online. below are reference pics.

1. Remove 5 screws with a philip screw at the back of the joystick.
2. Split the two covers with caution.ck
3. Carefully remove the rubber beneath the R1 button and replace it with a new one.
4. Put together the front and back part of the joystick.
5. Test the replaced part and screw if you're satisfied.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using Fixya..

My dualshock 3 is malfunctioning badly. Many times when I'm using the L2 trigger, it activates commands issued to the L1 button or the directional pad. How do I fix this issue?


I have had the same issue, except my issue is when I press L3 (left joystick pop in), it would malfunction the entire left side of my controller (L2, L1, and all the d-pad arrows). There are, unfortunately, very few 'good' solutions to this. The problem can lie in one of 3 different things: your controller's bluetooth is dying, your ps3 controller-receiver (its also a bluetooth chip) is dying, or both (that was the case with me). I had 2 controllers doing that, and I sent my ps3 to Sony to have it repaired (its free with a warranty, the whole process took 2 to 3 weeks) cuz they said the bluetooth receiver for the controllers (not for mic) was dying/dead. When I got my ps3 back, one of my controllers worked perfectly, and the other one (red dualshock 3, model number cechzc2u) was still malfunctioning. What Sony did was replace my ps3 motherboard. I plan to buy another controller, and save the receipt this time.

If you dont have a warranty, Sony will fix your ps3 for around $110-150, and when you get it back, it will come with a 90 day limited-warranty in case it wasn't fixed properly.

A TEMPORARY fix is to buy an aftermarket usb-plug controller, which runs on batteries and the plug goes into one of your usb slots. The problem with this, tho, is all of the aftermarket controllers have their own problems/design flaws, or unconfortable/not durable.

good luck, and I hope I helped :)

My dual shock 3 is not lighting at all. i tried connecting it on my ps3 and laptop using different usb cables but still when i press the ps button it didn't ligh


This usually happens when the controls have lost most of their power.
Try leaving your controller plugged in (charging)overnight or for like 2 hours. (Controls only charge with the PS3 ON).

Need wireless controller with vibration mode


they don't have it. the dual shock 2 has it. but thats a ps2 controller. the dual shock 3 is a six axis controller, sony opted for six axis instead of vibration. if your lucky you may be able to find a setup to use a dual shock 2 setup to use with an wireless adapter for the ps3. good luck with that one though.

Ps3 compatiblity with vibration and rumble feature


Greeting Vikas,
You do need a firmware update to enable the Dual Shock feature on your system. On the XMB (main menu), go to Settings and click on System Update. If you have internet connected you will be able to download the newest firmware there. Here is a link to a site with all of the Dual Shock compatible games For Japan, Europe, and USA.
