Hi BUB07,

 

I know you want this thing to work bad. You will get better help out of Sony that what I am going to tell you. Call 1800345 7669 and get it fixed.  If you do not want to call sony and want to attempt a near impossible repair. Here we go. Go find a table on a a floor that is not carpeted.REmove the screws that hold the case together. 

  • Look where the wies connect to the main board in the middle.
  • look for Bad solder joints, and if you find any REsolder these.
  • Put it back together and test it.
  • Done.
  • Sony has been having a slight problem with the Soldering in the PS3 era, you may get  lucky and find one. But, you wil void your Warranty.  

please do not press anything less than solved here, as if you press anything less, you will not have the opportunity to return and change it to Solved.  This is a Free tip, please give it a solved Vote.

My dreamgear chargepack works but when I but my sliver remote control in it lights up which means that its charging but when I try to charge my blue control the lights wont turn on. how do I make the light...


I have several controlers in several different colors, but "coincidently" several of the blue colored controls have had the LED lights stop working completely. I am begining to think that many blue colored Sixaxis PS3 controlers were made during a version that had problems with the LED lights going out and no longer working, or simply a bad batch of controlers.

Did you try letting it charge for a while, even if the ligfhts won't light up, then press and hold the PS3 button to check and see if it took the charge?

On my blue controlers, they still charge and still work, but none of the LED lights illuminate anymore.

Solution would be to buy a new controler, or ignore the lights not working.

My playstation 3 : everytime i turn it on it goes green then back to red and wont turn on? When it was working it just froze so i turned it off and since then it hasnt turned back on


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning .

We have an Intec G7789 Infinite Play wireless controller and we can't get it to work with our PS3. We have tried everything that the instructions say but it won't connect.


I dun really know how I did it, I had the same problem as u guys. And I try all sorta method.
  1. the last method that I tried was to leave my USB receiver thing in and then restart my ps3. With my controller turned off.
  2. After the PS3 restarts, I turned on my controller.
  3. Then I pressed the home and link button together. And those 4 lights on ur controller will flash really fast.
  4. Then I replugged my USB receiver, and the controller light will flasher a lot slower.
  5. Then just press "home" and the controller should sync with your PS3.
  6. And after that NEVER remove ur USB. LOL. After that, everytime u turn on ur PS3 just press the home button and the controller should sync with ur PS3.
  7. And remember to always to turn on ur PS3 before u turn on your controller.
Well that's my solution, if it doesn't work for u then sorry. Get a refund. I was planning to get a refund but then everything luckily worked out. Good luck and keep trying.

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.
