    It won't connect to the ps3, it turns on but the lights just flash. The usb is connected and the batteries are brand new.

I can't find the reset butonon my playstation 3 please. help.

PS3 does not have a reset button as far as I know. Although the PS3 controller does have the reset button on the underside. It's there if your controller lost its connection to the PS3.

If you want to change from HDMI to Scart you need to press and hold the power button while it's off, than a blue light will turn on on your ps3 and you can stop holding.

My ps3 controller doesnt connect with my ps3 :( . when i press the ps botton no lights come .but when i charge all 4 lights blink .please help !!!!!!!

I had just fixed my controller with that problem. Theres a tiny hole on the back of the controller. That is the reset button. Get something really small and thin so it can hit the button. Once done turn on your PS3 and plug up the controller with the usb connector. Once done press the PS button then it will start blinking and then assign a controller number

Welcome to Fixya. Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you

Batteries dead?
If not, take a pin or something thin and on the back of the controller there is a reset button in an indented hole. Hold it down for 5-10 seconds while the PS3 is on and controller is plugged in...see if that helps.

Controller and consolle

You can try hard resetting the controller.

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

I've read that not allowing the controller to die will help prevent this, so try and keep your controller charged 16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
If that doesn't work, another issue might be your cell phone and bluetooth headset (especially if you have the headset also connected to your PS3). Try turning off the headset, or if you use the headset on your PS3 as well as your phone, turn off your phone's bluetooth adapter. I was having this issue when I was using my Plantronics headset with my PS3 and cell phone.

Got this info from Kaivarri.

Let me know if that helps, if not let me know and I'll give you some more tips. Please don't forget to rate.
