Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Controller Jams

I've been playing COD 4 for a while now, and if you played it you know that you must sprint a lot in it, which is done by pressing the left analog stick in and moving it forward. Well, now that I had the game for half a year or so, I noticed that my controller started jamming. By that I mean that the left analog stick is slightly tilted forward without me pressing it. So when I play a game, it will move my character forward. I can move it back slightly, and my character will stop. But if I let go, it sometimes goes back to being tilted forward. Also, if I tilt the stick forward all the way and release it lightly, it will be stuck facing the front until I move it. This doesn't happen to my right analog stick.

Is there a fix for this? Or am I doomed to buying a new one?

Thank you.

    I think you will have to buy another one.

    I have the same problem bu with my right analog stick so in almost every game the camera is moving constantly at a steady pace so it's rotating aswell as pointing the game camera up at the sky which is useless...

    I'm thinking it's the controller hardware itself as in the plastic not being particularly great. If you notice, the analog begins to wear out wear it touches the outer ring area, and the dust from that may be getting into the controller and jamming analog into one spot...

    I guess you could open up and clean it, but if you don't know how to put it back together again than i guess you should leave it and buy another one.
    I might go and buy one tomorrow and just before i'll go i'll open up the controller and clean it and see if it still works and the analog problem is fixed...

    Same problem, even when the left stick is centered it seems be moving characters ever so slowly forward. Unfortunately, I've heard that inside the controller, the analog sticks are a sealed unit and when they break... well, it's over. I really expected better from Sony.

I down loadedthe cod ghosts onslaught maps but cant play them why


You must activate your system first. Here are the steps.
1 power on
2 log into the system
3 sign in to psn
4 Account Management
5 System Activation
6 PS3 System
7 Games and videos
Remember, SCEA only allows (2) systems to be activated under the same account. So even if you had 3 systems in your house, you can only activate 2. After your system is activated, then you can enjoy your new maps. ^^ P.S. As of this writing, "DEVASTATION" will be released for the PS3 TOMORROW!

I have a ps3 and it will play any other games but cod 5


This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.
