Try plugging it in and syncing it up to the ps3 again by hitting the ps button circle button center of the controller.

If that dont work and it isnt charging assume the battery is dead or your usb cable is no good. And you will need to replace which ever is bad.

My ps3 wireless controller will turn off my ps3 console. Why won't the controller turn on the ps3 console?


Try to resync the controller. With the system off, plug in the usb charging cord. then turn the system on. Use a pin to click the reset on the back of the controller. It should flash a number of times. Then it will stay on #1. It might take care of it. Good luck.

My ps3 fat won't pick up any ps3 wireless controller; solution


Install your usb charger cord to the system, and the controller before you turn it on. Then after you turn on the system, use a small pin, or paper clip to hit the reset button on the bottom of the controller. This solution works for all PS3 types, not just the fats. All that use Bluetooth controllers. Good luck. ^^

It turns on and comes onto a report problem so i send it but sometimes a report problem doesn't come up nether the less either way it starts for about 7 seconds then just freezes won't let me move...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

Can't connect orb controller to ps3


Plug the dongle in to the USB port, turn on the PS3 and the LED will flash a lot (as if you've pressed the connect button), then press L3 and SELECT together for 3 seconds; it'll then connect. Then press the PS button.
As long as you keep the dongle plugged in, the controller will not disconnect and won't need pairing again.

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D
