Try changing the USB cable. I bought 2 new DS3 controllers and both wouldn't work until I tried a different cable. Both would work when plugged in, but quit immediately after unplugging.

On the back of you dualshock pad next to the L2 button there is a tiny small hole witch looks like it could be a screw hole ! well this is the reset button once you have pushed this you will be able to conect your pad to your usb cable and it work on your console again

SOURCE: When I press the ps button on my dualshock 3

Hi, I dont have a ps3 myself, but sometimes when I play at my friend's house, this happens when u got more than 4 controllers on, like the ones from gh/rockband.
Press and hold the ps button, it should get u to the screen where u can chose to turn off the system, turn off the controller or change the controller number, just put it in number 1 to 4, and should work fine.

SOURCE: Dualshock 3 battery is not charging

Have same issue. Contollers only 2 month old and stopped holding a charge. The controllers flash 'dead battery' when switched on, if I plug up the charge lead they flash to say charging, and after 10mins or so they stop flashing. But no charge in battery. both my controllers have been charged less than 10/15 times.
This fault seems to have come about after the latest system update?
I think you should contact Sony.

How To Turn On Recovery Mode On PS3


To turn on recovery mode on your PS3 make sure you have your PS3 off,an controller charger and a controller (Does not matter what kind. EX:Afterglow,Dualshock 3 etc.). Next hold the on button on the PS3 till it turns off again. Then hold the power button on the PS3 again and when you hear two beeps really fast let go. Then it well ask you to plug your charger in and put your Dualshock 3 controller on it. It does not have to be Dualshock 3. After you have done that the recovery menu should appear. There you go your PS3 is now in recovery mode!

I just got a new ps3 which is a 320 gig, upgraded from a 60 gig. The dualshock controller is not responding or connecting to the new ps3? Any idea?


Hi,

Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you


Rate me if it works so that i can help other people like you!

My dualshock 3 controller wont connect to my ps3


i just got my new sony dualshock 3 controller (Japanese white version, i dont know if that matters) and when i try to connerct it without a USB the 4 lights will just flash and evenually just stop as if there was no ps3 there. If i connect it with a USB it will look as if it has connected, the ps3 will think it has but there is no input form the controller and instead of the first light going on the first and the second will go on. if anyone can give me any sort of help that would be great.

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
