My dualshock 3 controller wont connect to my ps3

I just got my new sony dualshock 3 controller (Japanese white version, i dont know if that matters) and when i try to connerct it without a USB the 4 lights will just flash and evenually just stop as if there was no ps3 there. If i connect it with a USB it will look as if it has connected, the ps3 will think it has but there is no input form the controller and instead of the first light going on the first and the second will go on.
if anyone can give me any sort of help that would be great.

How To Turn On Recovery Mode On PS3


To turn on recovery mode on your PS3 make sure you have your PS3 off,an controller charger and a controller (Does not matter what kind. EX:Afterglow,Dualshock 3 etc.). Next hold the on button on the PS3 till it turns off again. Then hold the power button on the PS3 again and when you hear two beeps really fast let go. Then it well ask you to plug your charger in and put your Dualshock 3 controller on it. It does not have to be Dualshock 3. After you have done that the recovery menu should appear. There you go your PS3 is now in recovery mode!

I connected my dualshock to one PS3 and now it wont connect to the other, it will only charge when plugged in.


When you connect the controller to a PS3 system via cable it pairs with it. And the only way that controller will work with another system is to plug it in also and let it pair with that one. That way when you turn the controller on it wont power up two systems and browse two systems at once. This is the way that Sony designed the controller.

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
