There's a secret reset button on the PS3 controller.

It's here:

Just hold down the button with a paper clip for ten seconds.

If you still have problems it's time for a new controller.

It stays on the first screen when u turn it on


Check if you're wireless controller is synchronized with your PS3 System. Your PS3 controller is synced if the LED underneath "1" is on after you turn on your controller. If all four lights are blinking you need to connect the controller to the PS3 using a USB cable and then push the PS button in the center of the controller. Now you should be able to navigate trough the system and play games. It only does everything.

The lights come on the playstation, but the screen stays black, and it doesnt read the controller, the controller just keeps blinking.


For the screen try making sure the cable is firmly connected to both your ps3 and your tv. For the controller, plug the controller into you playstation with a usb cord and then press the ps button.

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

When starting ps3 boots up as normal but get no display on tv and controller will not sync so lights just flash. Solida green light on front. Help please


Make sure you read this all before starting anything and if this helps please leave me a rating, if not let me know and I will try to help you farther.
Thank You

Symptoms:
On start, PS3 Green light comes up but nothing happens. No sound or video
Insert game or any disc into the slot, blue blinks and again nothing happens
Try to assign wireless controller, nothing happens.
Try restart the console, unplug it for a while, or keep it on for long time again does not solve the problem.
Solution:
With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.
Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
Now, the system restore screen (or whatever they call it) will come up like the Picture at the bottom of this writing.

You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming. For me, I tried the option top-bottom and eventually had to do the Restore PS3 System. Luckily, all I had were demos, trailers, and game saves. only game I was really playing now was Prince of Persia. I felt terrible still though, but much better than if I was playing Ninja Gaiden or MGS right? Or let’s say a game Fallout!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I have found a way to keep all your saved data with this problem.
Follow the steps above but first download the latest firmware update from the playstation website and save it onto a USB key. Follow the steps and choose the bottom option "SYSTEM UPDATE". Wait for it to update and it should restart with all your music, videos and gamesaves."ca67f16.jpg

We have an Intec G7789 Infinite Play wireless controller and we can't get it to work with our PS3. We have tried everything that the instructions say but it won't connect.


I dun really know how I did it, I had the same problem as u guys. And I try all sorta method.
  1. the last method that I tried was to leave my USB receiver thing in and then restart my ps3. With my controller turned off.
  2. After the PS3 restarts, I turned on my controller.
  3. Then I pressed the home and link button together. And those 4 lights on ur controller will flash really fast.
  4. Then I replugged my USB receiver, and the controller light will flasher a lot slower.
  5. Then just press "home" and the controller should sync with your PS3.
  6. And after that NEVER remove ur USB. LOL. After that, everytime u turn on ur PS3 just press the home button and the controller should sync with ur PS3.
  7. And remember to always to turn on ur PS3 before u turn on your controller.
Well that's my solution, if it doesn't work for u then sorry. Get a refund. I was planning to get a refund but then everything luckily worked out. Good luck and keep trying.

How to set up yobo controllers for ps3


I just bought a used one today and took me a little while to get it to work. Plug the USB receiver in and turn on the PS3. Press the Mode button and the lights will flash repeatedly at a fast rate (it's searching for the receiver). When it finds the USB receiver, the lights will still flash, but slower than before. When they're doing this, press the mode button again, and that should be all that you have to do. You can also plug the receiver in USB slot one, the charge cable in slot 2, and do the steps to set it up to make it work while charging. (I tried taking the receiver out while charging, and the lights started flashing again so I guess the USB receiver has to be in at all times)
