My phenom controller wont connect unless connected to usb


1 Hold your controller like you normally would when playing a game, and then flip it over. 2 Use a paperclip to hit the Reset button on the back of your controller. The button is located to the right of the screw found above the sticker on the back of the controller. 3 Connect your controller to your PlayStation 3 using the USB cable. 4 Press the PS button on the front of the controller. The system will boot up, and your controller is now reset and synced with your PlayStation 3. Tips & Warnings: If you use the same controller for multiple PS3 systems, you should do this whenever you notice problems with your controller, since it could resolve the issue. Don't press the reset button on the back of the controller too hard. Otherwise you risk damaging your controller.

Why is ps3 controler lights are blinking is battery gone or not charge properly thnx to anyone reply plz


I think you need to pair it with the PS3...

How have you tried to pair it?

Usually just plugging in the USB charge cable to controller and PS3 and pressing PS button works. But you may need to press the reset button on the bottom of the controller, then plug in and press PS button.

Gioteck vx1 wireless controller will not pair up to my ps3


This works: Turn ps3 on. Plug the controller into the usb cable and into ps3. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. After a short time the dongle will flash quickly (this means it's in pairing mode - when the dongle flashes slowly it's too late). Press the PS/Home button as soon as you see the dongle fast flashing. All the LED's on the controller will begin to flash and after a short time one (or two) will remain solid. Immediately disconnect the charging usb lead from the controller and again the LED's will flash, push the PS/Home button again and after a short time one or two will remain solid. The controller should now be working. If the controller fails to respond repeat this process but make sure that you disconnect the dongle and reinsert (so you can see the fast flashing lights and try again).

I have a PS3 and when i turn on my controller it works wirelessly but when i go to plug it into the system it wont charge( the lights wont even blink), i tried resetting the controllers, turning the system...


Check that the batteries in the controller are rechargeable, as some consoles that you can buy come with different things depending on the bundle you choose. I don't have a ps3 but I do have an xbox 360 and the bundle I chose did not come with a charger kit or rechargeable batteries. If they are rechargeable batteries have you tried them in a different ps3 controller to see if they will charge then?

CONTROLLER PROBLEM


Try resetting your Controller. Using a paper clip, there is a small reset button on the underside of the SIXAXIS. Press it.

While your PS3 is still on, press the PS button on the controller.

Ps3 controller


I was having the same problem. Controller would only work when plugged in.
Solution: I shut down and unplugged the PS3 for several minutes. Plugged in the controller. Turned on the PS3 and let it boot up. Pressed the PS button on the controller and let it sink up. When I unplugged the controller it worked.

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.
