SOURCE: 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.

My ps3 controller isn't charging what should I do ?


First, you need to troubleshoot if it's your system, wire, or controller.

Testing the controller:
Try plugging the wire into another port on the PS3, or into something else to charge it. Try charging it on a friend's system, with his wire, to see if it's your system. If it doesn't work, your controller or battery is bad.

Testing the battery:
Put your battery into another controller, see if it will charge on your friend's PS3 to test it. DO NOT put another battery in your controller: If the controller is shorted, it could ruin your battery!

Testing the Console:
If your controller charges on your friend's PS3 with his wire, try to use their wire on your system. If that works, it's probably your wire. If not, try other ports as I said. If none of the ports charge it (but it charges on your friend's, there's a problem with the voltage or amperage.

_______

If it's your system: It may symbolize a short life left of your PS3, not not for sure. I would still avoid plugging anything into USB you don't want to risk getting destroyed. You can still charge your controller with certain wall chargers, but only certain ones have the circuitry for a "handshake" the PS3 needs to charge.

If it's your wire: Get one from the dollar store should work.

If it's your battery: Getting one one eBay may be cheaper than replacing your controller.

If it's your controller: I prefer wired controllers personally, anyhow... for everything but the Wii, of course. You're going to need a new one for the PS3. You may want to save your battery for a later time or need.

Dualshock 3 just blinks with all four lights when i plug it into ps3 slim. reset button does nothing but delay blinking. no way of connecting so i dont know if it is charged or charging


Hello and welcome to Fixya. From what your describing it sounds as if your DualShock3 Controller lost it's bluetooth connection with the PS3. Make sure you plug the controller to the PS3 using the USB to miniUSB cable and hold down the PS button for three seconds to see if this resyncs it. If it does not turn your controller around and you will see a small hole. You will need a paperclip or other small long object and insert it into the hole to reset the controller. Next after pressing the reset button on the controller try the same steps that I provided above again. I can tell you that the four lights blinking slowly means the controller is actively charging. I hope you found this helpful and good luck.

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

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)

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.
