Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3
The X button on my PS3 controller has stopped working. Controller is new (less than 6 monts), I have tried to recharge it, reset it and turn the console off and on again.
Anyone knows if this is a bug or if the controller is simply broken?
Hey i bought my controller from gamestop brand new for 60$ and after 8 months same thing happend to me.
I think it happend because i tunrned the ps3 off incorrectly and i corrupted some data , i could fix that dat because the data corruped was those files for recognizion of the "X" button.
To restore it you will need a PS3 Dvd/Bluray controller to go the XMB and restore using that controller.

Ok, you've probably already figured this out, but you are in possession of a worthless POS fake PS3 controller. Congratulations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mji_PLB7Tb0

Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe
Press and hold the power button until
the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)
Press and hold the power button again
until you here 3 beeps. Let go.
It should ask you to connect your
controller via usb and press the PS button in
the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5
