Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3
The controller all of a sudden refuses to charge. It is working fine with the remaining charge, vibrates, startsup the PS3 console via the PS button etc. But does not charge.
Local Sony Gulf refuses to repair it.

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.
