PS3 controller wont charge

I have tried all different options. It used to charge well the first week I bought PS3 and now it wont charge. I have tried different cables, resetting the controller, plugging it into a laptop but nothing.

    I bought a new controller just yesterday. That also wont get the charge. I tested my PS3 system by plugging in a digital camera and it would charge that.

    Never seen any system behave like this.

Why-controller-not-connecting-to-console-with-or-without-USB


I usually know this is what most people do but have you followed the instructions on how to connect the controller to the PS3?

Basic steps are as follows:
Plug the controller w/ cable into ps3.
Turn on Ps3
If automatic pairing doesn't occur press the PS3 button and it should sync.

If it is brand new the batteries might be discharged and you will have to wait for them to charge up, i'd suggest a full charge (30-40 minutes sometimes) for best results.

Did you buy a PS3 controller or accidentally buy a PS4 controller? There can be a difference in wavelengths and design that is very important (beyond that they are two different versions and two different prices).

Did you buy it used, pre-owned or new? This will dictate the possible past issues had by previous owners and why it was being sold, or that you can get a new one with receipt to replace this defective one. (I say used and pre-owned as two different categories more to cite sources of vendor than actual conditions. Used would be by a friend or a non-business entity and a Pre-Owned would be by GameStop or the like who is sort of known to not accept broken devices).

Also as a last resort, on the bottom of the controller near the warrenty sticker is a small hole, stick a pin in there and hold it for 5-10 seconds. This will reset the hardware. Try the above steps again. If all else fails contact Sony CS as they are the only ones who could know whats going on... beyond a third party electronics store.

Hope any of this helps!

I have a PS3 and when i turn on my controller it works wirelessly but when i go to plug it into the system it wont charge( the lights wont even blink), i tried resetting the controllers, turning the system...


Check that the batteries in the controller are rechargeable, as some consoles that you can buy come with different things depending on the bundle you choose. I don't have a ps3 but I do have an xbox 360 and the bundle I chose did not come with a charger kit or rechargeable batteries. If they are rechargeable batteries have you tried them in a different ps3 controller to see if they will charge then?

Check to see if your USB cable works.It coulb be that your USB cable dont work and since your your ps3 remote needs to be charged then when you connect it to charge nothing happens so try using a different USB cable to see if that works..

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.

Ps3 controller


I was having the same problem. Controller would only work when plugged in.
Solution: I shut down and unplugged the PS3 for several minutes. Plugged in the controller. Turned on the PS3 and let it boot up. Pressed the PS button on the controller and let it sink up. When I unplugged the controller it worked.
