Have you charged it? If you have plugged it in and no lights blink you may have a defective controller. If so check with Sony support/

I just got a new ps3 which is a 320 gig, upgraded from a 60 gig. The dualshock controller is not responding or connecting to the new ps3? Any idea?


Hi,

Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you


Rate me if it works so that i can help other people like you!

My dualshock 3 wont pair with my playstation , all the 4 lights flicker but the number 1 light dont stay lit.


Try attaching the controller via cable, then turn the controller on. This will set you to the #1 controller, then unplug the controller, it should stay on the #1. Then turn the controller off (hold PS button for 3 seconds) and then turn back on.

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.

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.

Dualshock 3 sixaxis why does it always need to be plugged in


Once the controller is plugged in and connected to the console, hold down the PS button to select "turn off the system." Once the system has completed shutting down, unplug the controller and press the PS button. The console should turn on. If so, the controller will connect wirelessly. Unfortunately you'll have to do this with each controller but it works every time.
