    Help! My Zen V will NOT turn on unless I have it plugged into the computer. Otherwise it shuts down and I'm not able to switch it back on again (until I can plug it back in the computer).

My dualshock 3 is malfunctioning badly. Many times when I'm using the L2 trigger, it activates commands issued to the L1 button or the directional pad. How do I fix this issue?

I have had the same issue, except my issue is when I press L3 (left joystick pop in), it would malfunction the entire left side of my controller (L2, L1, and all the d-pad arrows). There are, unfortunately, very few 'good' solutions to this. The problem can lie in one of 3 different things: your controller's bluetooth is dying, your ps3 controller-receiver (its also a bluetooth chip) is dying, or both (that was the case with me). I had 2 controllers doing that, and I sent my ps3 to Sony to have it repaired (its free with a warranty, the whole process took 2 to 3 weeks) cuz they said the bluetooth receiver for the controllers (not for mic) was dying/dead. When I got my ps3 back, one of my controllers worked perfectly, and the other one (red dualshock 3, model number cechzc2u) was still malfunctioning. What Sony did was replace my ps3 motherboard. I plan to buy another controller, and save the receipt this time.

If you dont have a warranty, Sony will fix your ps3 for around $110-150, and when you get it back, it will come with a 90 day limited-warranty in case it wasn't fixed properly.

A TEMPORARY fix is to buy an aftermarket usb-plug controller, which runs on batteries and the plug goes into one of your usb slots. The problem with this, tho, is all of the aftermarket controllers have their own problems/design flaws, or unconfortable/not durable.

good luck, and I hope I helped :)

I too have the same problem. It's not a fault in the controller AFAIK as mine was new and I returned it thinking it was faulty only for the replacement to suffer the same problem.
My only solution so far is to not use any equipment so I don't get my face blown off whilst running with a claymore in my hands........

My PS3 won't reconize any of my controllers, putting the cable in works, it find the controller, but when I unplug te cable the lights start blinking again and I can't use the controller, what to do?

Hmmm. It sounds like either your PS3's Bluetooth controller is on the fritz, or all of your controllers are on the fritz. Since I doubt ALL of your controllers are malfunctioning, I am betting it's your PS3. I suggest having a friend with a working controller stop by and test his controller against your PS3. IF your friend's controller works, then you know that the PS3's Bluetooth controller is working.

Second step is to check to see if the USB cable is transmitting a trickle charge to the controller. Again, using your friend's controller (make sure he brings his own USB cable with him), try charging his controller with HIS cable first. If after 10 minutes of playing with the controller plugged into the PS3 via USB, you unplug it and the controller still works, then the problem is most likely your own USB cable (it's apparently damaged in some way). Now run down the controller's battery and try recharging it with YOUR USB cable. If it fails to charge, then you know that all you need is a new cable. Just in case, make sure you test EACH of your USB ports. A simple replacement will cost you around $10.

Otherwise, your PS3's UBS port(s) are not properly working and you should send in your PS3 for repairs. As stated above, test each of the USB ports on your PS3. My 60GB one has 4 USB ports, so I would test all 4 of them before sending in the PS3. Then, if you want it repaired, make notes of which port(s) is(are) malfunctioning and send it to an authorized PS3 repair center.

Dpad is stuck goin to the right and won't stay still

Turn off the controller and gently press each button to it's limit, including a rotation of the thumb sticks. This should help loosen up all the contacts and stop any sticking that's going on. It's the game-controller version of limbering up before a work out. Then turn your controller back on and reconnect.

If this doesn't fix the problem, turn off the entire system, including all controllers, and then turn them all back on. This should reset any "commands" your system is performing from the controller.

If neither of these options work, then your controller may have a real malfunction, and I would suggest having a local professional take a look at it for you. You may end up having to replace it.

I can hear game sound through my headset, i cant hear players but i can talk through my headset why is this?

You probably kinked your controller cable. That will cause the mic to malfunction. You should purchase a new controller cable on TurtleBeach's website under "Replacement Parts".
