Question about Sony Wireless Controller for PS3
I just did the newest update on my ps3 to version 3.00. now my controllers do not function, they allow me to turn the ps3 on only. when they turn on; the red lights numbered 1 and 2 stay on and the controllers won't do anything. everthing worked fine before the update. i have fully charged them, i have attempted to use them while connected using the usb cable, i have pressed the reset button at the bottom of each controller. still not working. what do i do? model Sony # cechzc2u
I had a problem with this controller type. I would try to turn it on and all 4 lights would flash like it was trying to connect but would not. The solution was holding it close to the ps3 when initially pressing the ps3 button to turn on the controller. It appears the problem is a weakness in the wireless signal and it's ability to make the initial connection. You can also plug in the controller manually to make the connection then unplug it after that and it should work also.

If you still have the PS 3 manuals, try pairing the controllers to your console again by following how to synch it or push the reset button from the back of the controller.
