Have you tried hitting the reset button on the controller? While it's plugged in via USB, get something small and hit the reset button on the back. (Right next to the front and center screw)

I updated my PS3 because it told me it would not run without and update and now it doesn't recognize the controller... CECHP01 used the latest update 3.66 (it asked for 2.76 or later.)


PS3's will sometimes loose their connection to the controllers. I have always fixed this problem with these steps:

1. Make sure the system is off (red light)
2. plug the control in with the usb cable
3. press the PS button in the middle of the controller (this will let the console relearn the controller)
4. once the lights on the front of the controller are not blinking red anymore, and have a single green light indicating which player the controller has taken, hold the PS button and turn off the system
5. once the system is off, unplug the usb cable
6. the controller should work without the cable now. (check by pressing the PS button to turn the system back on

Controllers will lose their connection to the PS3 when they die completely, during updates, power outages, etc. I don't know what exactly causes it, but I have had to do this process several times since I got my PS3.

Thanks,
John Vickers

My ps3 controller wont connect. i hit the ps button and all 4 lights on controller start blinking. ps3 is hoked to tv with a hdmi cord and it says no signal.


Hey there,
You just need to sync your controller with your ps3. To do so, use the USB cable that plugs into the controller and into a usb port of your ps3.
You will then be able to start your ps3 and push that ps3 button on your controller, once the ps3 has started, and you'll be good to go.

Everthing comes on but controller lights flash from 0-5 red lights and cannot start disc or film or game


It sounds like your controller has to be reset and linked with your PS3. Press the reset button on the controller with a pen or paper clip, then reconnect it via USB cable to your PS3. While red lights are blinking, hold down the PS button on the controller until it connects. If you have issues, I can give more clarification as needed. Thanks.

Problem with ps3 controller


Try hard resetting it by doing this:

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
