If it has Ni Cd batteries, You probably charged it to early. They have a "memory effect" which means if you charge it when it half dead, it will have less charge next time. You can buy new batteries, or go to Radio Shack and get them revived. OR:

Just remember: Buying batteries would be a better idea.

Intec wireless controller won't sync to my ps3 it is the infinite play controller can you help me


Had a similar problem with an official Sony Dual Shock 3 recently. Turns out the solution was a very small pin hole sized reset button on the back of the controller. Have a look and see if yours has something similar, then try connect the charging cable again and sync. Worked on the official one for me anyway :/
Best of luck!

The controller only works if it is plugged in and it is constantly flashing


Reset the controller then re-sync it. Unplug the controller from the ps3 system make sure the lights on the controller are still blinking then look on the back of the controller for a small round hole. Find something that can go into that hole and press the button inside to reset. Press and hold that button for 5 secs. Then re-sync your controller.

Hope that fixes it

My dual shock 3 is not lighting at all. i tried connecting it on my ps3 and laptop using different usb cables but still when i press the ps button it didn't ligh


This usually happens when the controls have lost most of their power.
Try leaving your controller plugged in (charging)overnight or for like 2 hours. (Controls only charge with the PS3 ON).

Dualshochock 3 controller


On the back of the controller there is a very tiny rest button.
Press and hold for 5 seconds.
Then reconnect to PS3. It should work.
This fix came from Sony Tech Support.
