I had almost the same problem,but a bit worse. Controller wouldn't start the console, controller shut down immedietly when i removed the usb cable etc.

Turns out that when i switched to a shorter usb-cable it all of a sudden started to charge the controller. The longer usb-cable i've used (~3meters) have worked perfectly on my other controllers (non dualshock though)... just upgraded from old ps3 to a ps3 slim where i got the dualshock controller which for some reason don't get charged with my long usb-cable...

So my solution, use the original usb-cable that comes with the console or buy a short usb-cable.

Its due to the whole BATTERY DRAINAGE.

Connect it to console/PC and make sure that light is blinking on number 1.

Leave it for atleast 30 mins to get some charge to power.

Let me know if it works like this or not.

My ps3 controller wont charge


Bosa, you're wrong. Had the same problem. The USB cable that comes with the PS3 won't charge the new Dualshock Sixaxis. I had to use a thicker, more robust cable in order to get the controller to start charging.

Dualshock 3 battery is not charging


Have same issue. Contollers only 2 month old and stopped holding a charge. The controllers flash 'dead battery' when switched on, if I plug up the charge lead they flash to say charging, and after 10mins or so they stop flashing. But no charge in battery. both my controllers have been charged less than 10/15 times.
This fault seems to have come about after the latest system update?
I think you should contact Sony.

Is it ok to charge my controller on laptop/pc


There isn;t a reason why you shouldn't charge using a laptop/pc, did a bit of resaearch and many people claim to be charging thier pads via a pc's usb,
I tried it on mine and it didn't work, it recognised the PS3 pad and installed it as a game controller, which was pretty cool but it wouldn't charge, haven't tried it on my mac yet . If it doesn't work first time try a diff. usb port on your laptop pc, as sometimes its certain usb ports on your system that carry enough juice to power a device

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
