Question about Sony Wireless Controller for PlayStation 3

1 Answer

The controller is charged up, but when we disconnect the wire between the station and the controller, it does'nt work. The controller just blinks on all lamps. It worked the first time we tried to use wireless. We have tried to turn off the station, but it wont work. When we connect the wire again, it charges again for a while, before it tells us that the controller is charged up. It's a DualShock 3 controller.

Nyko charger won't charge


Had same problem with blinking lights and not charging.
Plug charger base in (blinking lights), remove controllers, and plug USB cable into front charge slot (behind hinged panel). This reset charger base and lights stopped blinking. As FYI - the USB was connected to other device (charging it). Add the controllers and correct charging lights show up - including the controller 1 and 2 symbols. Controllers now charging.

What does flashing red light on wii dock charging station mean??


Make sure that when charging the battery pack it must be attached to a wii-mote otherwise this may cause a flashing red light. If the battery pack is attached to the wii-mote and you still have a flashing red light this may indicate that there could a problem with the battery pack itself.

The lights on the charge station are both blinking quick flashes of green without a remote on it - when I put the remote on it, there is no change in the blinking lights. I have no idea what's wrong - can...


Try contacting Nyko company to see if they have any solution. www.nyko.com I have the same charge station and discontinued using it because it would not charge my controllers after only a few months of use.

My new *WIRED* Xbox 360 Controller just blinks!!! *HELP*


Wireless:Mostlikey a battery issue or sync issue..
Wired:mostlikey a bad cable..
Wireless with cable:mostlikey a battery or sync issue or cable..

Unknown fact. Controller wires are ment to fail as to make more profits.. How you might ask.. if you have a old wire try stripping off the plastic and the fibermesh wire protecting that four wires are presnt a white and green wires which are for sync and control, and black and red for + and - power imput/output for charging/powering the controler.. What microsoft dosent want you to know is the black and red wires they make 2cm shorter then the green and white.(Note: This has been proven through over 45 wire checks over the past year.)

This causes the wires to rather break over a time through any number of ways the wires handled.. or to burn out through a short in the wires.. most of the time frying your controller in the process. Only solution to extend wire lifetime: Hang the wire strait in a vertical line off of something for example a wall or door.. the usb plug is fine but the problem area is between the "knot" and controller mount on the opposite end of the wire. solution #2: Dont buy wires.. battery packs and battery charge stations are cheaper in the end.

Can't connect xbox controller with NYKO batteries.


I had the same problem, asked Nyko's support department about it, and they told me that Microsoft updated their controllers at some point in the past, and this update rendered the version of battery pack I had useless. There is an updated version, but you will have to ship your old one back to Nyko and wait a few weeks. Hope this helps.

Roomba Docking Station


Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.

Docking station


I had the same problem. I did need to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!
