Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I have bought now 4 cordless remotes for the PS3. After a while, when pressing the PS button on the remote, the lights on the front just flash on and off a few times, but will not lock in to a specific player so that it can be used. The remotes has been charged. Is there anything that I can do to fix this problem?

On the PS3 in the settings menu, you need to set each remote/keyboard and everything seperately.

Bought a new will remote but it doesn't work.


Check the battery levels. You can do this by pressing A. If all 4 lights flash on and off, your batteries are completely charged. 3 lights, 2 lights, and 1 light signify 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 battery levels. If lights don't flash, replace/insert batteries.
If it's not working with your console, open up the battery cover and the flip lid on the front of the console. (If it's a Wii U, you don't need to open the flip lid.) In both places, there is a red button. (On Wii U, it's next to the flip lid.) Press both red buttons at the same time. (Your Wii will need to be powered on.) The Wii Remote will continuously flash lights until it either receives a sync signal or about a minute has passed; whichever comes first. If you've pressed the buttons and your remote is still flashing, press the button on the console again. Once the remote is synced, the flashing lights will turn into a single light; the placement of the light will vary depending on how many remotes are signed into the Wii.
*Note* Once your remote is synced, you simply need to press A to sign back in if your remote turns off.
If all of the above steps were followed, and your remote is still not functioning, contact the manufacturer. Brands such as Nintendo and Nyko are usually okay, but generics like GameStop aren't the best. It's often easiest to return it and buy a different brand.

Need to conect only controller i have for my ps3 and its a bd remote control how do i program this remote to my ps3


  • 1 Insert the two AA batteries into back of the DVD/BD remote.
  • 2 Power on your PlayStation 3 system manually. You can accomplish this by pressing the "PS" button in the middle of your wireless controller, or on the front of your PlayStation 3.
  • 3 Navigate to "Settings" on the PS3 home menu, referred to as the XMB.
  • 4 Scroll down the list of settings and select "Accessory Settings" by pressing "X" on your PS3 wireless controller.
  • 5 Select "Register BD Remote Control" by pressing the "X" on your PS3 controller.
  • 6 Follow the on-screen instructions that appear for registering your BD/DVD remote control. Once the remote is paired, you can control various multimedia applications on your system.

    How do you hook up a ps3 remote control to play games with the ps3 remote.


      1. Turn off your PS3 console and disconnect it from the power supply.

      2. 2

        Insert the USB cable provided with your console into an open contoller port. The controller ports are found on the left side of the front of the PS3.

      3. 3

        Insert the other end of the USB cable into the back of the wireless remote controller that you want to sync with the PS3.

      4. 4

        Reconnect the power supply to the PS3 and turn it on. The wireless remote control should sync automatically with your console. If it does not begin automatically, press the "PS" button at the center of your controller. This will begin the process. Once the sync is complete, you can disconnect the USB cable and the controller will communicate with your PS3.

    I can not sync my Controller to my ps3 console. I tried using the USB cord and it will not connect. I purchased a brand new controller and still the same results. What am I missing?


    Easy fix! Here's what you do:

    Start with everything off, connect your PS3 remote to the cord and plug it into your PS3.

    You are going to need something pretty thin, like a pencil lead, toothpick, or something semi-pointy with a decent size tip. I use a paperclip.

    Turn your PS3 on by hand, running your finger over the power opening (Don't know the technical term for this hole...) and let it completely boot up

    Once your main screen is loaded, press the center PS button on your remote. The 4 red lights will start flashing. Take the pointy end of your (paperclip/toothpick/other pointy object) and insert it into the tiny hole on the top back of the remote, press it in like your pushing an internal button. It should be right behind the 4 red lights - either way - it's the only little hole you have on it. Hold it in for a few seconds.

    The controller will process, and if done correctly, will sync with your PS3.

    If you have any other problems let me know. Enjoy!

    Respectfully,

    MY controler wont turn on when fully charged and it does responed to the ps3


    At the back top of the remote behind the 4 red lights there is a tiny pin-hole. With your PS3 on, press the big PS button on your remote, then push the button inside this little hole; a pencil lead may work. This is the only time you need to do this.

    Good luck and please give me a good rating if i've helped you.

    My screen is frozen in updates. It tells me to press ps button to use my controller. What is this?


    Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..

    Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.

    Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.

    Hope this helps
