Appears from the red light that the machine sees the controller.  From other sites it seems that there is foam inside and that it slips sometimes and that would explain why one part works and not the other.  The X button feels funny as if it does not depress all the way.  I am going to buy another controller and see if that solves the problem.  Two games work the same with it.

Why does the 4 lights flash red on the back of the wireless controller


When the controller is not synchronized with the PlayStation, the 4 LEDs flash. If the PlayStation is not turned on they'll flash if you happen to power the controller on. Press the PS (PlayStation) button on the controller to cause it to sync with the unit. If that does not work try plugging the USB cable into the PlayStation and into the controller to charge the internal batteries for a while and see if a full charge will help - if the radio signal is too weak coming from the controller it won't sync. If all that fails, try another controller if you have one and see if it does - could be a bad controller. Also you can go into the PlayStation settings in the controller section and tell the unit to "forget" old controller settings and start fresh. Handy to look at the PlayStation interface on the TV screen when you are trying to sync a wonky controller to see if the unit will give you any indication of a sync failure or something similar.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE CONTROLS HOW DO I FIX


I'm guessing the issue is that the PS3 isn't responding to your controller input.

Ensure that the PS3 controller is actually on. You can turn on the controller by pressing the Playstation button in the center of the controller. There will be a red light on top of the controller indicating that it is on.

If no light shows up, it's possible that the controller simply has dead batteries. Grab your controller charge cable (should have been included with controller, looks like this) and connect the controller to the PS3 while the console is on. Give it a few minutes, then press the center Playstation button again and see if it responds.

It's also possible that the controller just isn't synced to your PS3. Again, grab the charge cable and connect it to your PS3 while it's on. Then press the Playstation button while the controller is connected. It should sync it to the PS3.

If none of that is working for you, there may be an issue with the controller itself. The easiest fix it to reset the controller. There should be a tiny button in a hole on the back of the controller. Just press it (you'll need a paperclip or something to do it) and the controller will reset. I believe you'll have to re-sync the controller (using the cable again).

You should also try syncing other controllers to your PS3 to make sure that the issue isn't with the PS3 itself (which would be awful; I've never heard a PS3 breaking like that but I suppose there is always a first). If other controllers work then either your controller's battery is dead or the controller is actually broken. I don't think Sony repairs/replaces controllers so you may have to buy a new one.

It may be worthwhile to checkout their support page first, to see if anything helps before shelling out 50$ for a controller:

Sony Support
Sony Repair
Amazon - PS3 Controllers (I recommend Silver; it's ****).

Hope it all works out!

My controller won't turn on red lights flash then go off ,works ok when attached 2 charge cable. controller is fully charged


There is a tiny hole on the bottom of the controller. It's at the top left of the label. Use a sewing needle or something as small and push it into that hole. It will reset the controller and it should work again once you sync it to your PS3 with the USB cord again.
Thank you.

Playstation 3...Battery in controller is low, plug in controller


The dead give away for a dying controller is the red light on the numbers will flash.

When you plug your controller in and hit your PS button, at the top you'll see a controller symbol and a battery icon. If the battery bars are moving then it's charging. When it's fully charged it will display 3 bars solid even when plugged in.

I've been wrong before; but I'm 99% sure you cannot turn off the system and have the controller charge. As far as I know the system must be on while charging the controller. From my experience it takes about an hour or 2 to get it fully charged.

Good luck and if i've helped you please give me 4 thumbs up!

Respectfully,

Don

Controller not detected when contorllers plugged in, asking to insert ps 2 dual shock.


Look at the controller and see if the red light is on in the middle of the controller if it is not press the black rectangle button above the red light. If that dont work then your controller ports on the system might be dirty and need a light cleaning ....or you dont have a ps2 controller you might have a ps1 controller. Hope this helped

For PS2 "The Dualshock 2 Analog Controller is not detected." What should be done to fix this? Mom with 3 kids home from school! Help!


This could be the PS2 console. You need to try a different Dual Shock controller to determine if the problem is the controller itself or the ports on the Playstation. The normal problem here is a dirty connector on the Playstation. Clean the connector or you may need to check the Fuses inside the Playstation. This requires specialized skillls.
I have seen where Dogs have chewed the cable running from a controller, and caused the problem.

PS 3 Won't turn on blinking light


Are you trying to turn the PS3 on via bluetooth controller? If so, attempted to turn PS3 on from console itself. Sometimes the controller will get out of sync with the system and not allow for turning on remotely.
