Ghost recon PS3 Controller connection problem

I have just purchased a ps3 from a friend and i have been unable to get the ps3 controller to connect to the ps3 itself. I have tried a number of things: - Firstly checking that it is charged by pluging it in via usb and then holding the home button but nothing seems to work. No matter what I do it wont connect. I do also have the dongle thing and that is pluged in but still no joy! Please help!

SOURCE: PS3 controller Problem

I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.

SOURCE: Controller NOT Working Properly

I just came home to find this same problem. Four blinking lights on the wireless controller and the inability to sync the controller with my 360. On a whim I took out my controller's battery and then reinserted it after a few seconds. Voila! Problem solved. Controller works normally again!

My PS3 won't reconize any of my controllers, putting the cable in works, it find the controller, but when I unplug te cable the lights start blinking again and I can't use the controller, what to do?


Hmmm. It sounds like either your PS3's Bluetooth controller is on the fritz, or all of your controllers are on the fritz. Since I doubt ALL of your controllers are malfunctioning, I am betting it's your PS3. I suggest having a friend with a working controller stop by and test his controller against your PS3. IF your friend's controller works, then you know that the PS3's Bluetooth controller is working.

Second step is to check to see if the USB cable is transmitting a trickle charge to the controller. Again, using your friend's controller (make sure he brings his own USB cable with him), try charging his controller with HIS cable first. If after 10 minutes of playing with the controller plugged into the PS3 via USB, you unplug it and the controller still works, then the problem is most likely your own USB cable (it's apparently damaged in some way). Now run down the controller's battery and try recharging it with YOUR USB cable. If it fails to charge, then you know that all you need is a new cable. Just in case, make sure you test EACH of your USB ports. A simple replacement will cost you around $10.

Otherwise, your PS3's UBS port(s) are not properly working and you should send in your PS3 for repairs. As stated above, test each of the USB ports on your PS3. My 60GB one has 4 USB ports, so I would test all 4 of them before sending in the PS3. Then, if you want it repaired, make notes of which port(s) is(are) malfunctioning and send it to an authorized PS3 repair center.

Cant connect my ps3 control to any ps3


do you have the USB cable that connects the controller to the ps3, ( it looks like this: http://tech2.in.com/media/images/2007/May/img_5948_usb_cable_450x360.jpg ) its used for charging if you're more familiar with that method.

First make sure the controller you want to connect is TURNED OFF, then simply connect the controller to the ps3 using the USB cable then press the PS button in the middle of your controller, it should work
