If this is for a PS3 controler it may be your port on controler or just the USB cable. Check them both out

Playstation controller won't charge or turn on just flashes


well, there are 3 possible problems that causes your controller not to charge:

1. check the cable with an other device to see if it can charge something.

2. have you tried other USB hubs, other than you ps3?
if it's number 2 your ps3 is broken and needs to be repaired, or like the USB ports.

3. if your controller doese'nt charge with an other cable on an other device Etc. computer, if that is the case you need a new controller.

Nyko charger won't charge


Had same problem with blinking lights and not charging.
Plug charger base in (blinking lights), remove controllers, and plug USB cable into front charge slot (behind hinged panel). This reset charger base and lights stopped blinking. As FYI - the USB was connected to other device (charging it). Add the controllers and correct charging lights show up - including the controller 1 and 2 symbols. Controllers now charging.

Hi our controllers wont charge on our playstation 3 console can you help


Are you charging it correctly? To charge the controller, you use the PS3 charge cable that should have come with the controller (it's a USB A to mini B cable). Plug the USB A end into any port on the PS3 console and plug the mini-USB B side into the PS3 controller. The controller will only charge if the console is on.

Are the USB slots on the PS3 busted? Try a different slot on the PS3 console, or try a known working controller/cable combination on the slot in question. Alternatively, you can use something that has a USB port on it to charge your controller (for example, a laptop or PC). Again you must make sure the device that is charging the controller is on.

If the problem was the PS3, you can send it in for repair (if under warranty, it's free; otherwise it's 150$ so it might be better to just deal with the broken USB port).

Maybe the cable is broken? Try another cable, if possible, with a USB slot and controller you know is working. If it is the cable you can get replacements for really cheap.

If you can confirm that it's none of the above, the problem is probably with the controller. The first thing you should try is resetting the controller. There's a small button on the back of the controller, near the L2 button. You'll need a paper clip, but just press that. Then try to use it/recharge it again.

If it still won't charge it's possible the controller is dead (as in the battery will no longer hold a charge). The best way to confirm this is to try and use your controller while it's plugged in (as if to charge it); if it works while plugged in, but stops when you unplug it then the battery has died. You can replace the battery yourself (there are instructions in the PS3 manual), or send in the controller to Sony for a replacement (assuming it's a first-party controller aka made by Sony). If you're under warranty it's free (first party peripherals are covered), otherwise they may still take it for a fee but I'm not sure.

Hope you're able to fix the problem!

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.

    Is it ok to charge my controller on laptop/pc


    There isn;t a reason why you shouldn't charge using a laptop/pc, did a bit of resaearch and many people claim to be charging thier pads via a pc's usb,
    I tried it on mine and it didn't work, it recognised the PS3 pad and installed it as a game controller, which was pretty cool but it wouldn't charge, haven't tried it on my mac yet . If it doesn't work first time try a diff. usb port on your laptop pc, as sometimes its certain usb ports on your system that carry enough juice to power a device

    Dual shock 3 after several attempt to turn it on or charge it iget no response. no flashing lights, noting


    So, no flashing lights when you connect it to the USB charger? Have you tried alternate USB slots? Have you tried your PC's USB connection? The controller, if still functioning, should accept a charge. If not, try a similar USB cable to see if that's the issue. If that doesn't resolve the problem, you may need a new controller.
