You just have to keep pushing down on the top of the stick and releasing it,like the PS2 had L3 and rolling it around.I get that with PS2 controller.I basically just go spastic on it for about 10 seconds and it stops.Do you know what I mean?Push down on the knob,not literally in the down direction.If you have questions,just reply.
Good luck!

Ps3 controller manual


You plug in the usb cable to charge the controller and connect it to the ps3 for the first time. You use the left analog stick to move around the dashboard when the ps3 is turned on and the 'X' button to change settings, go to the online browser, playstation store, or start a game. You can back out by pressing 'O' or holding the 'PS' button, which allows you to change a controller number (say controller #1 to #2 with two controllers), turn off the system or turn off the controller. Press (not hold) the controller to look around the dashboard while in a game and select say "Quit Game', or go into settings and change something around to your liking. Every game also comes with the controls and for what the buttons are. (Stick on left is the, "Left Analog Stick," right is "Right Analog Stick," from right to left starting at the green triangle shaped button is the, "Triangle," "Circle," "X," and "Square," buttons. The four buttons on the left going in all directions is the D-pad, and the triggers on the back going from the top left to bottom left and top right to bottom right are, "L1," "L2," "R1," "R2").

Water on electronics is extremely problematic. In almost all cases, unless properly and promptly taken care of, the device is usually ruined. When you spilled the water on it and then pressed buttons, the electricity that is normally sent was intensified by having a conductive material present, and the internal components were probably fried. This is why the controller can't correctly interpret the buttons that you are pushing. The PS3 controller is problematic in that to turn off the controller, you actually have to press buttons. In the future, whenever you spill water on any electronic item, immediately turn it off and allow to air dry for at least 2 days before even attempting to turn it on again. Unfortunately, in this case, I think you are just out a controller.

Welcome to Fixya. 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

Right analog on ps3 gets stuck on top left direction


the circular thing that lets it move freely probably cracked, making it harder to move. i had to buy a new controller because of this reason.

When I press the ps button on my dualshock 3 controller for the ps3 two lights come on over the 1 and 2 labels and it won't respond. What is the problem? It used to work fine.


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.

Dualshock 3 sixaxis why does it always need to be plugged in


Once the controller is plugged in and connected to the console, hold down the PS button to select "turn off the system." Once the system has completed shutting down, unplug the controller and press the PS button. The console should turn on. If so, the controller will connect wirelessly. Unfortunately you'll have to do this with each controller but it works every time.
