Try plugging the second controller in to the ps3 using a provided usb cord then press the PS button on the controller. Do this just to make sure that the controller is paired to your PS3. If your still having issues you may need a new controller.

Hi.i can't split the screen on the ps3 when playing mine craft.to add a second player.my settings must be wrong somewhere?


To split the screen for a player 2 in Minecraft for the ps3 version, you must use a cable with the colors red, blue, and green, OR an HDMI cable to connect to your TV. If you are using another type of cable, you are out of luck.

We have xbox360 it's hooked up to sansui sledvd244 how do i get split screen so there can 2 players please help


Minecraft Xbox 360 is a multiplayer game by default. Players can join online or locally via connected controllers. Split screen is a way to play multiplayer on the same console. To play split screen, the Xbox must be outputting a resolution of 720p or higher.
you must have an HD TV for split screen. Connect Xbox to tv with an HDMI cable. Start mine craft when you've logged on with your first controller enter your desired world then pause the game. Turn on and sync your other controllers if they haven't been connected before.Log in those controllers and press Resume Game.
  • Your television screen should be split into two or four parts depending on how many controllers are connected.

How can I get ride of the pscan split screen view on my memerex vcr-dvd player without the remote control and no manual


Hi,
I'm not sure what is model number of your VCR-DVD combo so providing you general info to turn off pscan.
Put disc in player, press play to have distorted picture then press stop button to stop playback.
Now press and hold Stop button on unit for 6 seconds that will turn off pscan mode.
Or let me know exact model number of your player to find out solution.
Thanks.

Cannot play Tiger Woods PGA 09 with 2 remotes


Tried that, but the 2nd remote won't respond when we try to use it to pick second player. My question is why in the world would someone create a game that is sooooo difficult to play!? Picking two players with two remotes shouldn't be so hard to do!!!

DVD plays as a split screen on my television


On the Insignia remote control:

- press power on
- Open disk tray
- click set up button
- click the arrow button pointing left
- press enter
- click the arrow button pointing up
- press enter
- press enter again

I got this off of a website yesterday evening and figured I'd give it a try. Well, it worked. The screen went back to it's original state and the PSAN error (in the middle of the screen) disappeared.

Wii mario kart, second wheel won't turn


I tried resyncing from the main screen, but one of the wiimotes still didn't work. I read to smack the wiimote facedown in your hand a couple of times, and that worked!!!

Apparently the motion sensor can get stuck inside, although it doesn't totally make sense, because previously when the wiimote didn't steer, it still moved on the screen to choose character, car, etc.

Cant add a controller


I had the same problem and called Nintendo support. They had us unplug the wii console for 30 seconds, plug it back in and start the system back up. BEFORE pressing the A button on the health and safety screen, we needed to take the battery cover off of one remote, press the red sync button, then quickly press the sync button on the front of the wii console (in the front - you have to open the flap). Once the single blue light was on at the bottom of the remote, do the same with the other remote (press the sync button on it and then on the wii console). Then the second blue light should be lit on the second remote. Hope that helps!
