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 does is blink. Does anyone have any idea how to connect it? I have two 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!
Please understand it wont work plugged in or even on bluetooth.
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!
