Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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.

what you can do is open the controller clean the board by using cotton buds with alcohol or cleaner you will notice accumulated dust preventing the buttons from touching the board you need to remove those.

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!
