Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
Ps3 had ylod that has since been fixed. my problem now is when i turn the ps3 on it asks for the hard drive to be formatted, witch would usually just be a case of holding down the ps button on the control pad and hitting x. but thats my problem the ps3 wont recognise the controller its not lightiong up the wifi icon at the bottom of the unit. i tried the wifi board from this system in another and it worked fine so i think it must be the motherboard but im unsure. any ideas?

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.

Sounds like the controller knows it belongs to the other PS3. It has already "paired" with one console, so that's why you're having a hard time trying to get it to pair with console #2, comprende?
Make sure console #1 is a "hard off", like switched in the back. Now flip your controller over & put a pencil or pen tip in the reset hole. ( Just to the right of the center screw hole.) NOW connect said controller with the USB to console #2. Hold the PS button for two seconds. All 4 lights will flash 5 times, then the 1 light should stay on, Boo-ya! You're PAIRED!
