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.

Thanks,

    SIXAXIS does not provide vibration. DUALSHOCK 3 does. (Dualshock 3 also has SIXAXIS written on it, as it is also provides the motion sensors that the old SIXAXIS controllers did.)

    As for the actual problem: There's a setting in the PS3 to disable or enable wireless controller vibration.

    Go to Settings > Accessory Settings > Controller Vibration Function. Set it to ON.

    If it still doesn't vibrate, turn the controller over and press the reset button. Now resync the controller by plugging it into the PS3 with the USB cable, and pressing the PS button.

    If the controller STILL doesn't vibrate (and you're sure it's a Dualshock3 and not just a standard SIXAXIS) it may be malfunctioning. You'd likely have to buy a new controller.

    (Yes I realize this question is two years old. People still end up here from Google. I did.)

Have you charged it? If you have plugged it in and no lights blink you may have a defective controller. If so check with Sony support/

Tip

Connect ps3 to PC


<span> <li> <p>Plug the mini-USB port end of the USB cable into the PlayStation 3 controller while connecting the standard USB port end of the cable to your PC.Wait for Windows to report that it has "Detected New Hardware" and let Windows go through its full scan. When Windows says that it could not recognize the hardware, the scan is complete.Download the appropriate drivers for your controller, either SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 (it is written on the top of the controller). These drivers can be found on several websites by doing a Google search for "PS3 Controller PC Drivers."Unzip the driver files from the zipped folder to someplace easily accessible on the hard drive (such as your desktop).Double-click the Setup icon and follow the directions given on-screen to install the SIXAXIS drivers.Unhook the controller and reset your computer to complete the installation process.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

Hi, the wireless controller, a sony dualshock 3 sixaxis, won't stop vibrating. Any solutions? thanks, Angela


If you've already removed the batteries and replaced them, then I think there is a small hole on the bottom you could stick a paper clip into an press a button to do a reset. You may have to re-sync the controller with the console after doing this. I don't have one of these, but I've heard of doing this before.

My ps3 controller wont charge


Bosa, you're wrong. Had the same problem. The USB cable that comes with the PS3 won't charge the new Dualshock Sixaxis. I had to use a thicker, more robust cable in order to get the controller to start charging.

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.
