Instead of updating to 2.42, you should update to the latest version available (currently v2.80). The game probably doesn't work with the current software as the game most likely needs some of the new features in a newer firmware update.

My ps3 is stuck on a black screen reading: connect the controller using a USB cable than push the PS button, I think its part of the safe screen but I don't have a wireless. Don't know what to do.


if you have tried to connect the controller using the usb and that didn't fix it try to rest your controller and reprogram it for your system make sure it is fully charged

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.

Bought new controller but it wont turn on the system when I press the PS button?


Ok first of all you need to pair it with your system by plugging it in manually through the usb cord. After that it should be ready to go now you can turn it on or off with the PS button.

Have you tried hitting the reset button on the controller? While it's plugged in via USB, get something small and hit the reset button on the back. (Right next to the front and center screw)

My dual shock 3 do not sync with my ps3. When I push ps button to sync it plug on the usb cable I got the no. 1 and 2 light than stay on. Thanks!


At the top back part of the controller there is a little pin hole button. With the console on, press the PS button and then the little button inside the pin hole to sync the controller.

If i've helped you please give me a good rating.

V/r,

Ps button


Back up your system using the backup utility ( ONLY if you have saved games, pics, video, etc. that you wanna keep)

Go to SETTINGS, SYSTEM SETTINGS, RESTORE PS3

That's the first thing you should try.

Let me know what happens.
