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.

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!

Tip

How to Troubleshoot Blinking Lights on a PS3 Controller


Video Guide to this tip is HERE Accessible>>

The controller for the PlayStation 3 is unique to any other previous PlayStation controller in that it is wireless. The controller is not physically plugged into the system, which means that you can still use it from any point in your room and you don't have to be a specific distance away from the PS3. Occasionally the controller will run into problems, which are often displayed to the user as a series of blinking lights on the controller itself.
Step 1 Move closer to the system. If you get too far away from the PlayStation 3, the controller will not be able to transmit its signal to the system. This will cause the lights to blink and the controller to become unresponsive.
  • Step 2 Recharge the controller. As the PS3 controller is wireless, it operates on an internal battery. If the battery becomes too low, the lights will start to blink, alerting the user that it needs to be plugged into the system to charge. Plug the controller into the system and charge it fully before attempting to use it again.
  • Step 3 Turn the controller on and off. If the lights start to blink and you can't determine the reason, turn the controller off and then back on again. This will clear its internal memory, essentially resetting it. When the controller comes back on it will operate as normal, without blinking lights.

    I dont know how to turn on a mad catz playstation 2 wireless controller


    First, make sure you have new batteries in the controller.
    Next check the reviver of the wireless controller and see if there are any switches to turn on/off.
    Lastly, there should be a switch on the controller itself on the middle face of it.

    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.
