PS3 does not detect controller even with a USB cable

I bought a brand new PS3 and when I started it for the first time, it did not detect the controllers, even with USB. I tried changing the controllers and cable, but still it does not work. The screen keeps on asking me to connect controller using a PS3. My PS3 model is CECHL01.

Sony play 3 wirerless controller brand new turn it on and just four lights blink?for about 3 minutes then shuts off


Hi there. To fix this you will need to register your new controller with your PS3.

Do the following:

Connect your New PS3 controller to the PS3 with the USB cable. Followed by the PS button on the new controller. This should send the driver to the PS3 so that it recognizes that you have a new controller.

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)

you need to plug the usb cord in to the ps3 and the controller. then press the ps button then it should work. if it does not then keep it plugged in and press the small reset button with a pin on the back of the controller and then repeat the first step.

I cant get my controller to program to my ps3 we just bought it at gamestop and when we plug it in to the ps3 and try to program it the center button just keeps on lighting up and flashing


Normally, any time you push the PS button on the sixaxis, and it's NOT synced, it should always go into syncing mode where you see the lights start to flash. All sixaxises should work like this. If you happen to have a ds3 it might work different, I don't know about those.

It's possible that it may not be charged up enough to do the syncing wirelessly, even though it can send the start-up signal. Try experimenting by charging it up fully, then seeing if it will start and auto-sync.

After you connect the usb cable and it syncs, can you disconnect the cable, and have the controller still work? If not, I would suspect a defective or loose battery, which can be easily fixed by opening the controller and securing the battery wire's connector plug, or replacing it.

If it will still work after you re-detach the usb cable, it sounds more like some defect in the controller itself. Could be you would need a new one to fix it.

Ps3 controller


I was having the same problem. Controller would only work when plugged in.
Solution: I shut down and unplugged the PS3 for several minutes. Plugged in the controller. Turned on the PS3 and let it boot up. Pressed the PS button on the controller and let it sink up. When I unplugged the controller it worked.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
