Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System
My ps3 shows a screen that says "CONNECT THE CONTROLLER USING A USB CABLE, AND THEN PRESS THE PS BUTTON." I have tried this and all it doesn is blink. Does anyone have any idea how to connect it? I have to ps3's so the controller works fine on my other system. For some reason it will not connect. Could it be a blue tooth problem? Thank you!
Try plugging you PS3 into a different socket in your house. MY Fat PS3 power and eject buttons dont work and remotes dont sync. Reason was the wall socket wasnt grounded well. every other socket in the house all the above work fine...

If your controller works fine using the usb cable then is not your blu tooth card inside the ps3 the blu tooth only works when the contoler is not connected with the usb cable try to push the PS logo for 2 times in your control using the usb cable and then wait a few seconds and see what happend

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!
