There isn;t a reason why you shouldn't charge using a laptop/pc, did a bit of resaearch and many people claim to be charging thier pads via a pc's usb,
I tried it on mine and it didn't work, it recognised the PS3 pad and installed it as a game controller, which was pretty cool but it wouldn't charge, haven't tried it on my mac yet . If it doesn't work first time try a diff. usb port on your laptop pc, as sometimes its certain usb ports on your system that carry enough juice to power a device

Ps3 controller was sticking so i took it apart to clean it and now it doesnt work @ all!


Best advice that can be given, take it to a video game store or other related repairman. If you're not sure on the interior of ps3 controllers, you could wreck it even more trying to fix it, even off a tutorial. From what you said, however, it might just be cheaper to buy a new controller alltogether.

My 1 month old dualshock3 controller goes crazy and does the wrong action. Sometimes it works correctly only if i connect my usb charger halfway in, thats crazy...


You may have to download a system upgrade for your ps3, It should download automatically if your ps3 is on-line, failing this reset controller and fully charge before using, The "usb charger halfway in" i don't know how you would fix this, sorry.

Dualshock 3 just blinks with all four lights when i plug it into ps3 slim. reset button does nothing but delay blinking. no way of connecting so i dont know if it is charged or charging


Hello and welcome to Fixya. From what your describing it sounds as if your DualShock3 Controller lost it's bluetooth connection with the PS3. Make sure you plug the controller to the PS3 using the USB to miniUSB cable and hold down the PS button for three seconds to see if this resyncs it. If it does not turn your controller around and you will see a small hole. You will need a paperclip or other small long object and insert it into the hole to reset the controller. Next after pressing the reset button on the controller try the same steps that I provided above again. I can tell you that the four lights blinking slowly means the controller is actively charging. I hope you found this helpful and good luck.

My controller is original dualshock3,...the stick and the pad when i turn on the ps3 on the xmb menu it rapidly goes stuck to the left any ideas before i buy another ps3...HURRY!!! i won't hold much...


Have you tried using a different controller? Usually this is the problem, your PS3 controller's D-Pad is stuck on the left side or the responding piece beneath the D-Pad is being pressured down in some manner. I recommend trying a Different controller first before buying another PS3 ( get a cheap PS3 Arcade stick or something)
