SOURCE: PS3 controller Problem
I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.

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!

This is an issue since 3.10 update...MANY MANY people are having this problem. Try turning off console then turning console on by hand and waiting till its booted to turn on controller. eventually it will work, but its only a temporary fix, hopefully sony will respond to this problem soon

I've got exactly the same problem i'm running 3.10 on my PS3 and have tried restoring the system doing a full format of the drive you name it. nothing works. The update 3.15 downloads fine but it gets to 21% of the install and brings up this 8002F147 error. I can't play any Blue Ray films on it or go on the web as all it wants to do is run this update which it can't. Additionally I also can't turn on via
the PS button. It's a 80GB one that i've just brought off ebay.
Ps. I called Playstation support at the weekend and they advised that I take it around my friends and try running the update which made no differnce which I thought it wouldn't as i've tried it via flash etc which downloads fine it's an install problem......
