Is this controller original or alternative? there are a lot of alternative PS3 DS3 with this kind of defects...the clone controller is so close in quality that sometimes people thinks that it is original...but when you open it you discover that it´s not....try and see if it is really original..
Good Luck!

I bought a dual shock controller but the little reset button at the back doesn't have a button in it, so can't reset. What can I do. The lights are blinking when I plug in the usb cable, but that's it. ...


Hi,

You need to use a paperclip to press the reset button. Unfold the paperclip and push it into the reset hole which is to the right of the screw above the sticker on the back of the controller.

Once you have reset it, plug in the USB cable and press the round button to sync with the PS3.

Hope this helps,

Chris

My dual shock 3 is not lighting at all. i tried connecting it on my ps3 and laptop using different usb cables but still when i press the ps button it didn't ligh


This usually happens when the controls have lost most of their power.
Try leaving your controller plugged in (charging)overnight or for like 2 hours. (Controls only charge with the PS3 ON).

Dual shock 3 after several attempt to turn it on or charge it iget no response. no flashing lights, noting


So, no flashing lights when you connect it to the USB charger? Have you tried alternate USB slots? Have you tried your PC's USB connection? The controller, if still functioning, should accept a charge. If not, try a similar USB cable to see if that's the issue. If that doesn't resolve the problem, you may need a new controller.
