If it is properly hooked up to the PS3 via the USB cable, it should only take about an hour to fully charge. NOTE, it will only charge while the PS3 is powered on. I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

Controller recharge lights flash 15 times then go off for 15 seconds not charging handset


I think 2 things here Bob. Either your battery is about to take a nose dive, or you are using an after market charging cord. NOT ALL CORDS WILL CHARGE THE CONTROLLER!!! The cheapest thing to do, is try another cord. And if this don't work, the battery is actually inexpensive and easy to replace.

Gioteck vx1 wireless controller will not pair up to my ps3


This works: Turn ps3 on. Plug the controller into the usb cable and into ps3. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. After a short time the dongle will flash quickly (this means it's in pairing mode - when the dongle flashes slowly it's too late). Press the PS/Home button as soon as you see the dongle fast flashing. All the LED's on the controller will begin to flash and after a short time one (or two) will remain solid. Immediately disconnect the charging usb lead from the controller and again the LED's will flash, push the PS/Home button again and after a short time one or two will remain solid. The controller should now be working. If the controller fails to respond repeat this process but make sure that you disconnect the dongle and reinsert (so you can see the fast flashing lights and try again).

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    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?

    Hi, I have two problems: 1- My controller disconnects when I hold or press X repeatedly. 2- My play & charge kit light turns green after a few seconds when I want to charge the controller's...


    Both issues might be to the same problem.

    First problem number 1... you should try using some AA batteries and try to see if you still get the disconnect issue when pressing the X button repeatedly. If so then you have either a bad controller or you have some interference with your controller and other device that might be messing with the 2.4Ghz radio frequency. (Note: that sometimes metal frames and some wires can also bleed signals.)

    If your controller works fine with the AA batteries then the issue is likely your rechargeable battery.

    Secondly problem number 2... I have had similar issues with batteries. often times it is just because you have reached your limit with your charging on your battery. If you are an avid gamer then this might be the issue. You might want to try the tweak to getting your charger to work again:

    "First insert the play and charge kit a little way in just enough to make a contact but not enough to click into place - light goes red - when light goes green slide it out a bit so the green light on the play and charge kit goes out - The green light on the controller should stay on, count to 2 in you head then slide it back in again like before. As soon as the light goes green to tell you its charged slide it back out again I had to do this 3 - 4 times then as if by magic the light should just stay red and carried on charging."

    Hope this helps.

    MY controler wont turn on when fully charged and it does responed to the ps3


    At the back top of the remote behind the 4 red lights there is a tiny pin-hole. With your PS3 on, press the big PS button on your remote, then push the button inside this little hole; a pencil lead may work. This is the only time you need to do this.

    Good luck and please give me a good rating if i've helped you.

    We have rechargeable controllers. They no longer accept a charge. We bought a new battery pack - when you plug in the USB cord from the console to the controller, it says they are fully charged, but when...


    it seems like the charge cable isnt charging the pack. have u tried using an alternate charging method like a charge stand? or try on another controller, if it still doesnt work on another controller, its your charge cable.

    Playstation 3...Battery in controller is low, plug in controller


    The dead give away for a dying controller is the red light on the numbers will flash.

    When you plug your controller in and hit your PS button, at the top you'll see a controller symbol and a battery icon. If the battery bars are moving then it's charging. When it's fully charged it will display 3 bars solid even when plugged in.

    I've been wrong before; but I'm 99% sure you cannot turn off the system and have the controller charge. As far as I know the system must be on while charging the controller. From my experience it takes about an hour or 2 to get it fully charged.

    Good luck and if i've helped you please give me 4 thumbs up!

    Respectfully,

    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.
