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

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

The controller only works if it is plugged in and it is constantly flashing


Reset the controller then re-sync it. Unplug the controller from the ps3 system make sure the lights on the controller are still blinking then look on the back of the controller for a small round hole. Find something that can go into that hole and press the button inside to reset. Press and hold that button for 5 secs. Then re-sync your controller.

Hope that fixes it

Sixaxis not connecting


The only thing I know to do is with they system off press the PS button on the controller. While the lights are flashing, manually turn on the Playstation using the touch button on the machine. This is what I have had to do in the past and it worked for me. I hope it does the same for you.

Ps3 compatiblity with vibration and rumble feature


Greeting Vikas,
You do need a firmware update to enable the Dual Shock feature on your system. On the XMB (main menu), go to Settings and click on System Update. If you have internet connected you will be able to download the newest firmware there. Here is a link to a site with all of the Dual Shock compatible games For Japan, Europe, and USA.
