Console is frozen on connect controller screen


Have you plugged your controller into the system via a usb cable? Do that and hold the center button (PS) until the red lights in front of the controller go from 4 blinking lights to one, then you should be good to go.

My ps3 controller wont connect. i hit the ps button and all 4 lights on controller start blinking. ps3 is hoked to tv with a hdmi cord and it says no signal.


Hey there,
You just need to sync your controller with your ps3. To do so, use the USB cable that plugs into the controller and into a usb port of your ps3.
You will then be able to start your ps3 and push that ps3 button on your controller, once the ps3 has started, and you'll be good to go.

Cant start ps3 with controller ,just 4 flashing lights.


It may have lost a connection to the console. Connect the controller via the supplied Mini-USB cord, just as if you were charging it.

Everthing comes on but controller lights flash from 0-5 red lights and cannot start disc or film or game


It sounds like your controller has to be reset and linked with your PS3. Press the reset button on the controller with a pen or paper clip, then reconnect it via USB cable to your PS3. While red lights are blinking, hold down the PS button on the controller until it connects. If you have issues, I can give more clarification as needed. Thanks.

Epson TM-T90 wont work with USB plug


I have the same problem...Epson does not work with a parallel to usb cable or adapter. If you still want to use this printer you will have to use the parallel port or change the interface on the printer to USB.

Sixaxis not connecting


The only thing I know to do is with they system off press the PS button on the controller. While the lights are flashing, manually turn on the Playstation using the touch button on the machine. This is what I have had to do in the past and it worked for me. I hope it does the same for you.

Dualshock 3 sixaxis why does it always need to be plugged in


Once the controller is plugged in and connected to the console, hold down the PS button to select "turn off the system." Once the system has completed shutting down, unplug the controller and press the PS button. The console should turn on. If so, the controller will connect wirelessly. Unfortunately you'll have to do this with each controller but it works every time.
