I don't know where you bought it but you should have gotten a usb receiver with your controller. you need that to be plugged into your ps3 and synch with your controller. here is the step by step from the beginning

I have a madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

How to re sync a ps3 controller


<span> <li> <p>Connect the controller. With your playstation 3 system powered down, connect the mini-USB --- which is the smaller of the two ends on the cord --- to the slot located in the center of the top of the PlayStation 3 controller. The USB end of the cord should then be connected to one of the multiple USB slots located on the front bottom of your PlayStation 3 console.Turn on the PlayStation 3. The console will automatically recognize the connected controller, which you can then use to operate the PlayStation 3. By powering up the console with the controller attached, the two will automatically pair up and sync.Shut off the PlayStation 3. Hold down the P button located in the middle front of the controller until a menu appears on your screen asking you whether you'd like to shut down the PlayStation 3, shut down the controller or cancel. Choose the first option and wait until the console powers down. Disconnect the cord from both the PlayStation 3 and the controller.Turn on the console with the controller. Holding down the P button on the controller, wait until the console powers up and the introduction screen appears. Your controller is now synced with the PlayStation 3 system.Troubleshoot your controller. If the above steps do not work, there is another step to take, according to PlayStation's troubleshooting guide. Straighten out a length of paper clip and then flip your controller over so you are looking at the back of it. There is a small hole in which you can insert the paper clip and reset the controller's settings. Once you do, repeat the steps above to sync your controller to the console.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

Sync a ps3 controller to a diffrent ps3


<span> <li> <p>Using a PS3 controller charge cable (the cable that connects your controller to a USB port on a PS3), connect the PS3 controller to the console you wish to sync it with.With the cable still inserted, press the PS button in the center of the ps3 controller.The lights on the PS3 controller will flash for a moment, and then a controller number will be assigned to the new controller.Your PS3 controller is now synced to the console, and you can unplug the charge cable. Repeat these steps when you want to sync your controller with a different console.If you ever need to reset the Bluetooth connection of a PS3 controller entirely, locate the small pinhole on the back of the controller. By using a paper clip or other thin object to press the button inside this pinhole, you can reset your controller and its Bluetooth connection.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

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

My controllers wont sync to the ps3 or charge on it but they charge when i plug them into the PC. i had the "Maximum power reached" message thing plop up then my ps3 crashed and now they dont...


yea i have noticed my ps3 isn't charging stuff either it only does charge when its turned on im pretty sure theres a setting to charge while the ps3 is off To sync:
  • Connect the USB cable (provided with the controller) into the data USB port on the top of the controller. Insert the other end of the controller into one of the two USB ports on the front of the system.

  • Power on the television and the Sony PlayStation 3. You are going to see a series of lights flicker on the top of the wireless controller.
  • Press the PS3 button in the middle of the controller. This tells the gaming system it is connected. A single light appears on the controller.
  • Remove the gaming controller from the PS3. You can now use it wireless. It is also possible to remove the USB cable from the PlayStation if it is blocking your field of view.

    Controller wont sync with the ps3. only


    First make sure you are not too far from the PS3, if not, try plugging the controller into the USB port on the front, if still nothing, I don't know, try buying a new one.

    The controller is not powering up with new batteries


    If your controller does not power up then it is because it has not been synced to the console.

    I do not know what system you have so I can not tell you how to do this.

    For instance, If you have a Wii, you need to turn on the wii, open the battery cover on the controller. Press the little red button. Then open the little door on the wii where you put the memory card and hit that red button. that should connect the controller to the Wii.

    For Xbox 360:
    1) Turn on 360 (ring of light) and controller (Start or Guide button).
    2) Press the Connect button on the 360.
    3) Press the Connect button that's at the top of the controller, next to the slot for a charging cord.
    4) Everything spins and flashes, and syncs up.

    If you have PS3 then:

    Plug your controller into the console with the usb cable, then hit the PS button. that will sync it to the PS3 then you can unplug it.

    Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya!!

    Here's how to connect it tou your ps3. Mine works perfectly guys.

    1. Turn your ps3 off without the USB key given with the controller
    2. Make sure your controller is off.
    3. Turn on the ps3
    4. Turn on the controller
    5. Press on the sync. button of your controller.
    6. Plug the USB key into one of your ps3's port
    7. When the light above your controller starting to flash slower, just pess the home button and your controller will be sync.

    You can't turn on the ps3 with this controller. So turn it on manually than press the home button of the controller to turn the controller on.

    If my post doesn't solve your problem, I really don't know how to solve it. I managed to connect mine so I hope it'll be the same for you!

    Sorry for my bad English folks! You know... french people =S
