My ps3 wireless controller will turn off my ps3 console. Why won't the controller turn on the ps3 console?


Try to resync the controller. With the system off, plug in the usb charging cord. then turn the system on. Use a pin to click the reset on the back of the controller. It should flash a number of times. Then it will stay on #1. It might take care of it. Good luck.

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

Ps3 is 14 months old and just froze, cant do anything with it.


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 You need to restore the file system.
Here is how to do it.


HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Hi there. it sounds like the blue ray drive has failed on your ps3.I take it that sony repaired your old one or sent out a reconditioned unit? If it is still under warranty get them to replace it again and insist on a 12 month warranty. i am on my 3rd unit now and because its a 40 gig model which they dont make anymore i am having to do with yet another reconditioned unit. hope this helps.
