My ps3 controller doesnt connect with my ps3 :( . when i press the ps botton no lights come .but when i charge all 4 lights blink .please help !!!!!!!


I had just fixed my controller with that problem. Theres a tiny hole on the back of the controller. That is the reset button. Get something really small and thin so it can hit the button. Once done turn on your PS3 and plug up the controller with the usb connector. Once done press the PS button then it will start blinking and then assign a controller number

Tip

Sync a ps3 controller to a diffrent ps3


<span> <li> <p>Using a PS3 controller charge cable (the cable that connects your controller to a USB port on a PS3), connect the PS3 controller to the console you wish to sync it with.With the cable still inserted, press the PS button in the center of the ps3 controller.The lights on the PS3 controller will flash for a moment, and then a controller number will be assigned to the new controller.Your PS3 controller is now synced to the console, and you can unplug the charge cable. Repeat these steps when you want to sync your controller with a different console.If you ever need to reset the Bluetooth connection of a PS3 controller entirely, locate the small pinhole on the back of the controller. By using a paper clip or other thin object to press the button inside this pinhole, you can reset your controller and its Bluetooth connection.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

My ps3 controller wont connect. i hit the ps button and all 4 lights on controller start blinking. ps3 is hoked to tv with a hdmi cord and it says no signal.


Hey there,
You just need to sync your controller with your ps3. To do so, use the USB cable that plugs into the controller and into a usb port of your ps3.
You will then be able to start your ps3 and push that ps3 button on your controller, once the ps3 has started, and you'll be good to go.

Im tryin to get my ps3 controller to sync to my ps and its just blinkin the lights for controls 1234 extra fast and wont load


Maybe the electricity that your PS3 is using is not completely enough for it to work, it has happened to me sometimes, I just moved the PS3 from the room I used to use it, it was simple enough. Or maybe you just don't know how to sync it, you must connect the controller to the PS3 using the USB cable, then press the PS button and its done. Hope it works.

The lights come on the playstation, but the screen stays black, and it doesnt read the controller, the controller just keeps blinking.


For the screen try making sure the cable is firmly connected to both your ps3 and your tv. For the controller, plug the controller into you playstation with a usb cord and then press the ps button.

My logitech controller for PS3 won't work. The red light will blink but it will not function at all.


you need to sync it with your ps3 console. There a button on the usb (underneath) that you need to press while pressing on the ps3 button on the controller. The usb needs to be connected to the console while your doing this.
