If it is a white ps3 controller it may be a fake, my white one does not work and as far as i can tell it may because it is a counterfeit. mine says CECHZC2H on the back meaning its made for hong kong, so it may just be cheap, but if that code on the back ends in a "U" then it is 100% fake because white ones were never made for the USA. If you got it off ebay you may be out of luck :(

Gioteck vx1 wireless controller will not pair up to my ps3


This works: Turn ps3 on. Plug the controller into the usb cable and into ps3. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. After a short time the dongle will flash quickly (this means it's in pairing mode - when the dongle flashes slowly it's too late). Press the PS/Home button as soon as you see the dongle fast flashing. All the LED's on the controller will begin to flash and after a short time one (or two) will remain solid. Immediately disconnect the charging usb lead from the controller and again the LED's will flash, push the PS/Home button again and after a short time one or two will remain solid. The controller should now be working. If the controller fails to respond repeat this process but make sure that you disconnect the dongle and reinsert (so you can see the fast flashing lights and try again).

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. 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!

Thanks for using Fixya

My INTEC Turbo Shock 3 Controller is not working i asked my friend i followed to instructions it did not help please help as soon as possible Thanks Peter


I have the same problem. I disconnected the key, plugged the controller with its original cable. Turned the PS3 on, turning controller on, pressing Sync, connecting the key in PS3. At that state, the 4 leds start to flash slower as it detects the key. Problem is I can never connect to console. I mean I press Home and it never connects. Its been working fine before I updated PS3 to 3.5 version.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.

My controller wont register with the ps3 anymore and i have the cable to charge it and it still doesnt work the lights just keep flashing but it doesnt register


Try another controller and see if that will register, if that doesn't try another usb cable for the controller and if the controller still doesn't register then that means the controller board is bad and would need to be replaced.

How do I program my PS3 Bluetooth remote



Registering a BD remote control 1.
Prepare the BD remote control.
2.
Select in_peripheral.gif (Accessory Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Register Bluetooth® Device].
4.
Select [Register BD Remote Control].
Only one BD remote control can be registered at any given time. If you register another BD remote control, information on the currently registered headset will be overwritten.

5.
Follow the on-screen instructions to register the BD remote control.
When the registration (pairing) is complete, a controller number is assigned.

Hints
  • When seven SIXAXIS™ wireless controllers are in use, you cannot register or use a BD remote control.
  • If you register the BD remote control with another PS3™ system, the device registration with the first PS3™ system will be cleared.
  • For detailed usage instructions for the BD remote control, refer to the instruction manual for the BD remote control.

Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off.
Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that.
Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.

Succes.

I a playstation 3 Blue-ray disc remote control which wont pair


Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont work..it has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.
