The battrey is probably to old and will not charge. try another controller and see if that charges and stays charged when you unplug it. or try pressing the reset button on the controller.

I have an xbox 360, but i have a ps3 connect to the tv via hdmi. i swapped the hdmi cable to the xbox and powered on. i had all the cables in the correct position, the correct av selected on the tv, but...


Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable from both the TV and the console and then trying to reconnect?

Y+RT does not reset controllers for the Xbox 360, so not sure what you are attempting there?

What type of TV do you have? It appears the issue is with either your cable or the TV seeing that you are having the same issue with both your PS3 and Xbox 360.

I still think your first step should be to disconnect all cables from both ends and reconnect. (with poer off of all sytems of course) If this doesn't solve your issue then submit further information on your setup such as TV make and model and I can research other possibilities.

How do you hook up a ps3 remote control to play games with the ps3 remote.


    1. Turn off your PS3 console and disconnect it from the power supply.

    2. 2

      Insert the USB cable provided with your console into an open contoller port. The controller ports are found on the left side of the front of the PS3.

    3. 3

      Insert the other end of the USB cable into the back of the wireless remote controller that you want to sync with the PS3.

    4. 4

      Reconnect the power supply to the PS3 and turn it on. The wireless remote control should sync automatically with your console. If it does not begin automatically, press the "PS" button at the center of your controller. This will begin the process. Once the sync is complete, you can disconnect the USB cable and the controller will communicate with your PS3.

Disconnect the cable from the ps3, the one that connects the ps3 and the monitor, for a few seconds, then reconnect it. You do this while video is playing or when you play games.

PS3 USB cycles every 5 seconds??


Pack it up. Ship it back, even if you don't have a warrantee, and since its the original 60GB, you probably
do not. But, it's going to keep on doing this until you have corrected the misconfigured unit.

One thing you did not mention, is whether you have the latest updates, and if you don't, try that before
packing, IF your constantly disconnecting unit will allow you to do so.

My ps3 controller wont connect with my ps3


Brian,

If after connecting to the USB it still won't work wireless, the best thing to do is this:

1 - Connect the controller to the PS3, via USB

2 - Click the PS Button to turn on the system

3 - On the XMB screen, click the PS Button again. You'll get the options, to "Turn off the controller". Do that and then turn it on again. It will reconnect with your PS3.

Regards,
