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!!!

Brand new Sony dual shock 3 analogs not responding like my other ps3 controllers


Take it back to the shop if it is under warrantee. Don't mess with it and destroy your warrantee.

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 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).

X button on PS3 controller not working


Hey i bought my controller from gamestop brand new for 60$ and after 8 months same thing happend to me.
I think it happend because i tunrned the ps3 off incorrectly and i corrupted some data , i could fix that dat because the data corruped was those files for recognizion of the "X" button.
To restore it you will need a PS3 Dvd/Bluray controller to go the XMB and restore using that controller.
