Try to resync the controller. With the system off, plug in the usb charging cord. then turn the system on. Use a pin to click the reset on the back of the controller. It should flash a number of times. Then it will stay on #1. It might take care of it. Good luck.

SOURCE: connecting x rocker chair to ps3

I HAVE THE SOLUTION for all ps3 and ps3 slim gamers with the x rocker chair. it took my 2 long hours of frustration but i finally figured out how to make it work with ps3 slim. okay, forget about the red and white audio output plugs, those aren't needed. (my tv has no audio output jacks so i had to find a different solution) find the cable with the green headphone plugs on both sides. plug one end into the tx box and the other into the headphone jack on your tv. make sure your sound settings on your ps3 are set normally so that the sound is coming out of the tv. turn on the tx box, turn up the chair volume (and volume on the tv) and there you have it. enjoy!

Check to see if your USB cable works.It coulb be that your USB cable dont work and since your your ps3 remote needs to be charged then when you connect it to charge nothing happens so try using a different USB cable to see if that works..

My ps3 fat won't pick up any ps3 wireless controller; solution


Install your usb charger cord to the system, and the controller before you turn it on. Then after you turn on the system, use a small pin, or paper clip to hit the reset button on the bottom of the controller. This solution works for all PS3 types, not just the fats. All that use Bluetooth controllers. Good luck. ^^

Take a paper clip and flip your controller over. Theres a small reset button on the back near the top. Push it in and try to re sync to your ps3.

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

It turns on and comes onto a report problem so i send it but sometimes a report problem doesn't come up nether the less either way it starts for about 7 seconds then just freezes won't let me move...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

Cant get internet connestion


Are you hard wiring it? if so you may need to reboot your modem then start the ps3 back up. Don't unplug from the computer and connect it directly to your PS3 because the modem still has the computer's ip address and it won't recognize the PS3 until you reboot it. If it's a wireless connection, check to see that when you scan for wireless connection that the green wireless LED is blinking, meaning it's searching for a signal. If it's blinking, then try resetting the modem and the wireless router as well and give it another try. If the green light does not blink, then there might be a harware issue with your PS3. Good luck

It stays on the first screen when u turn it on


Check if you're wireless controller is synchronized with your PS3 System. Your PS3 controller is synced if the LED underneath "1" is on after you turn on your controller. If all four lights are blinking you need to connect the controller to the PS3 using a USB cable and then push the PS button in the center of the controller. Now you should be able to navigate trough the system and play games. It only does everything.
