Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

New afterglow ps3 wireless controller, and the R1 button stopped working.

Is there anyway to fix the R1 button or a way to reset the controller? I got this controller for Christmas and I can't return it anymore because I threw away the box, so I was wondering if there was anything else I could do. I am not really sure what happened, I was just playing infamous then I decided to change game and then it just wouldn't work anymore. Thank you for any help :)

Try using the previous game and see if it works, some games exclude certain button functions for whatever reason... or it may be a loose connection inside the remote... you can csll Sony and they will send replacement remote if stillbunder warranty... hassle free for the most part if u have receipt on hand... If using the other game doesn't restore function of r1 then please post with update and I will tell you how to disassenble and troubleshoot wiring.... Good luck

SOURCE: wireless controller problem

Its not a memory stick! its a radio reciever that you need with the controller.

The remote bundled along has a seperate one.

Just make sure the switch on the dongle is set to PS and not PC (as can be used on a pc aswell)

SOURCE: since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot

Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge


or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

My Afterglow Ap.2 ps3 controller turns off randomly during gameplay. How do I fix?


It's quite possible that the controller is faulty...Xbox One controllers are actually having the same issue as well. Normally speaking you can either contact your manufacturer about an inquiry to get it sent in for repair, or you'll have to go out and get a new one. If they don't have a fix for you, that's one of your final options.

Where is the reset button for the afterglow AP.2 wireless located


There is not one. The Afterglow AP2 requires a dongle that plugs into one of your available USB ports in the system. Without it, it is just a glowing paper weight. Setup: Controller=transmitter, dongle=receiver. Read the box if you have it. If it says something like (2.5 htz) then it isn't bluetooth compatible.
