Try changing the USB cable. I bought 2 new DS3 controllers and both wouldn't work until I tried a different cable. Both would work when plugged in, but quit immediately after unplugging.

On the back of the controller there is a very tiny rest button.
Press and hold for 5 seconds.
Then reconnect to PS3. It should work.
This fix came from Sony Tech Support.

Yeah, that's one down side with the Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller. It does not provide vibration, sorry. I wish I could provide you with more information.

If I helped please rate me and create a testimonial on how well I did help.

SOURCE: 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.

Can you give any information relating to the game you are trying to play? Do other games work? If your machine powers up and everything works accept the dvd drive the laser/drive maybe at fault. It maybe as simple as you need a new sixaxis dualshock 3 controller.

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.

Sixaxis controler won't vibrate


The SIXAXIS controller will not vibrate by design.

You must have a Dualshock 3 controller.

If your controller says dualshock 3 on it and it does not vibrate, you should see if you have any warranty support or if you can replace it.

Sixaxis on ps2 ???


No, it's not possible to hook up sixaxis to PS2. Sixaxis is a part of DualShock 3 for PS3 which is an optional feature in the PS3 games. Playstation 2 controllers run off of DualShock 2. So sorry, but you're gonna need a PS3 for that.
