Re: controllers

Sounds like you have a dud controller port module. I had the same problem after I broke my PS. The fuse in the controller ports is blown. Either take it to be repaired, or by anotherone dirt cheap - I bought a new one for £10.

My new wireless controlpad will not connect

I'm having the same problem... Only when I click my PS button, it flashes, normally. Then again, it's faint, and very, very fast, machine-gun-like flashing. And it's really annoying. Who knows how to fix this problem? I've tried resetting, there's no way to connect the controller with the console it's self, I've tried using the wire to connect it... No luck, nothing's happening. Please help?

My old ps2 controller is not working. i used a new controller but it still doesn't work. the new controller was tested on another unit and it works fine. so i guess its the console itself is the...

See if your ps2 controller hub or port is damaged. If any pin is twisted try to get it straight and if you can't fix it, take the console to a service center.

My controller will not connect on my ps3.

Sounds like the controller knows it belongs to the other PS3. It has already "paired" with one console, so that's why you're having a hard time trying to get it to pair with console #2, comprende?
Make sure console #1 is a "hard off", like switched in the back. Now flip your controller over & put a pencil or pen tip in the reset hole. ( Just to the right of the center screw hole.) NOW connect said controller with the USB to console #2. Hold the PS button for two seconds. All 4 lights will flash 5 times, then the 1 light should stay on, Boo-ya! You're PAIRED!

My Ps3 has code 8001000A and won't connect to the network

Since you're having both controller and wireless it might have something to do with your PS3's wireless hardware.

If both your controller and your internet work correctly while wired then that would help to confirm that.

Test to see if it makes a difference. If it works correctly then I would suggest replacing the part yourself. It's VERY easy to do.

Let me know what happens by rating my solution and then we'll go from there.

Best of luck!

I got a nintendo wii but it comes on but the remote wont connect to the sensor can enyone hel


if you take out the batterys in the controller, you,ll see a small button/switch.
use this for the sensor bar, to receive the signal being transmitted from the controller to the sensor.
You may alternatively, have to reset in the settings menu.

Happy Gaming.

Power problem

Sounds to me that you have loose connection, have you pulled the plug out of the socket and checked the wires are connected properly.Obviously make sure there is no power on if you do this!

Move the lead about behind the PS3 see if it makes any differance.

How old is the unit is it under warranty if it is then i would take it back to where you bought it.

Ps2 won't read ps1 memory card

PS2's don't read PS1 memory cards outside of the browser screen. It can only be used as access memory. Hope this helped. As for the slots it might be only fixable by a mechanic.
