Probably a bigger problem.

You should test the wire / controllers on a friends system.

NO wait!

Don't do that. If you do then you'll lose the connection / link between your controllers and the ps3.

Test your FRIEND'S controllers / cables on your PS3.

If they don't work then it's a problem on the motherboard that isn't easy to fix.

You'll have to charge the controllers another way. Or else pay Sony 150+ to fix the problem.

My ps3 controller isn't charging what should I do ?


First, you need to troubleshoot if it's your system, wire, or controller.

Testing the controller:
Try plugging the wire into another port on the PS3, or into something else to charge it. Try charging it on a friend's system, with his wire, to see if it's your system. If it doesn't work, your controller or battery is bad.

Testing the battery:
Put your battery into another controller, see if it will charge on your friend's PS3 to test it. DO NOT put another battery in your controller: If the controller is shorted, it could ruin your battery!

Testing the Console:
If your controller charges on your friend's PS3 with his wire, try to use their wire on your system. If that works, it's probably your wire. If not, try other ports as I said. If none of the ports charge it (but it charges on your friend's, there's a problem with the voltage or amperage.

_______

If it's your system: It may symbolize a short life left of your PS3, not not for sure. I would still avoid plugging anything into USB you don't want to risk getting destroyed. You can still charge your controller with certain wall chargers, but only certain ones have the circuitry for a "handshake" the PS3 needs to charge.

If it's your wire: Get one from the dollar store should work.

If it's your battery: Getting one one eBay may be cheaper than replacing your controller.

If it's your controller: I prefer wired controllers personally, anyhow... for everything but the Wii, of course. You're going to need a new one for the PS3. You may want to save your battery for a later time or need.

Tip

Sync a ps3 controller to a diffrent ps3


<span> <li> <p>Using a PS3 controller charge cable (the cable that connects your controller to a USB port on a PS3), connect the PS3 controller to the console you wish to sync it with.With the cable still inserted, press the PS button in the center of the ps3 controller.The lights on the PS3 controller will flash for a moment, and then a controller number will be assigned to the new controller.Your PS3 controller is now synced to the console, and you can unplug the charge cable. Repeat these steps when you want to sync your controller with a different console.If you ever need to reset the Bluetooth connection of a PS3 controller entirely, locate the small pinhole on the back of the controller. By using a paper clip or other thin object to press the button inside this pinhole, you can reset your controller and its Bluetooth connection.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

3-9 v6 I put a new alt. still not charging


Hey Bob , you need to check an see if there is battery voltage at the bigger wire connected to the alternator ! This wire has a fuse for protection , if it is open , burnt fuse ! This is the wire the charging current flows to the battery on ! This charging system is controlled by the powertrain control module , the two smaller wires in the connector come from the PCM . You would need a factory scan tool to see if the PCM is switch it on ! Do you have a charging or battery symbol lit on the instrument cluster ? Hope I was able to help an you catch what I'm saying ! good luck

The problem could be as simple as a loose connection .. Control pads are fiddly and can get very frustrating I ended up buying a new pad as I figured that the stress wasn't worth the cost of a new 1 but 1 of my pads used to pull to the right constantly and the problem was solved by taking the pad apart and simply cleaning the inside and making sure all wires was connected .. Sorry I couldn't be more help

First you should turn off your ps3 and then take out your plug for safety resons. secondly shake your pad there is a reason but a weird one. third, get a pin look at the back of your pad and clik that tiny button. then put the charge wire in your pad put your ps3 on. wait 5 minutes that should work.

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D
