Only one controller can work at a time

I have a ps3 and on call of duty 4 i can play with all the controllers. i haev rainbow six veags two and i can start the game with the controller it came with, but the other controller only works when i turn the others off. and i cannot play multiplayer because one controller will stop working. i can't play gran turismo 5 prologue with either of the wireless logitech controllers. i can go through the menu's but when i start the race, all's i can do is pause the game or quit it.

You will need to pair the second controller. To do this power on your ps3 as normal with the controller that works, then plug in your second controller via usb and press the "PS" button. The red LED's should flash and then the second led should stay on.

You should be able to play normally.

Trying to play Call of Duty 1 playstion2 on PS3


Some games will do this if you are holding the control-stick any direction while starting the system.

Next time you play it, try holding the stick just slightly in the opposite direction to compensate as you start the system, or unplug the controller-hold the stick down, then plug back in ( while playing )

If that doesn't work, it might be time for a new controller. Or you could open it ( disconnect first ) and check around the stick for anything that might be pushing it up.

Ps3 controller won't turn on...


hi..

Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&thread.id=3290911

but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY..

thank u

PS3 Randomly Reboots while playing Rainbow Six Vegas


Sounds like you've got a data issue related to the hard drive.

You should use the Restore to Factory Settings option under SYSTEM.

This should address the problem.

Also does the machine feel hot or does it sound loud?
