    I'm having the same problem with a silver version of it. That and the R2 button is broken, but I think that's just from playing alot of CoD and Minecraft where R2 is excessive.

I Got an speedlink SL-4451-SBK for ps3 and it wont connect


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 madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

Does not connect to the ps3


Connect a micro-USB cable between the controller and the PS3 and press the PS button on the controller. This should sync the 2 devices.

When my son tries to play his guitar all the lights are flashing on it and we cant figure out how to get it working..


The flashing lights on the controller mean the guitar is not connecting to the wireless usb dongle connected to the PS3.

1. Verify that the wireless box is plugged in firmly to the usb port on the front of the PS3.

2. If that doesn't work, look on the wireless usb dongle for the guitar hero guitar controller. (It should be a black box with the guitar hero logo on it. You will find a small push button on the dongle. (Make sure your PS3 is turned on, though your guitar hero game does not have to be open. It may be a good idea to have the game running, so you can test your guitar or make sure it is really working). Press and hold the button on the wireless usb dongle for a few seconds. Five seconds should be enough. Doing this attempts to re-connect the dongle and the controller. You will know when the connection is good when the red lights on the controller go steady, as well as the LED on the small button you pressed on the wireless usb dongle. If either lights continue to blink, there is a connection problem still.

3. Try changing the batteries in the guitar controller. Weak batteries tend to cause connection issues.

4. Test the wireless usb dongle and controller with another PS3. This will rule out an issue with your PS3 system.

5. If the problem still occurs on another PS3, the wireless dongle may have gone bad. (This does happen rarely.) Replacements are cheap to find on ebay

From the Manual:
1. With your Playstation 3 game Console on and the ON/OFF switch on the bottom of the controller set to on. Plug in the USB receiver into a USB port in the Playstation 3. The LED will flash slowly.
2. Press the "connect" button on the receiver. The LED will flash rapidly.
3. Press the "menu" button on the controller. The four channel lights will flash rapidly until the sync process is done. When the sync process is done one of the channel lights will remain solidly lit.

I just bought a Lava Glow Wireless Controller for my ps3, but i cant get it to connect to my system. what do i need to do?


With the playstation powered ON plug the USB Receiver in the Console into Input 1#. The Light on the receiver will flash rapidly. On the controller press the menu button. the led on the controller then will flash rapidly, press the menu button again while the LED on the Controler is Flashing. Once you have done this you should get a solid Light on the controler. Now your controler is set.

Why is it not working?


re syncing the controller with the ps3. by holding the small button in the back of the dongle that came with this controller. Plug that dongle in like normal and hold the button in the back for 3-5 sec. This should reset and fix the problem.
