I would suggest reversing the steps you took and look for anything you missed or improperly placed components because you said it kept turning on so something got pressed together improperly and is giving you the negative results your having im sure you will figure it out

PS3 Controller will not power on, nor when it is plugged. It flashes but will not turn on.


you have to take it apart again.
be careful, like the first time.
clean contacts with rubbing alcohol (also little rubber buttons) let dry.
you have to do it again, you should see what you did wrong or something you missed.

My ps3 controller doesnt connect with my ps3 :( . when i press the ps botton no lights come .but when i charge all 4 lights blink .please help !!!!!!!


I had just fixed my controller with that problem. Theres a tiny hole on the back of the controller. That is the reset button. Get something really small and thin so it can hit the button. Once done turn on your PS3 and plug up the controller with the usb connector. Once done press the PS button then it will start blinking and then assign a controller number

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you


Rate me if it works so that i can help other people like you!

Thanks for using Fixya

Didn't eject disc before taking apart to clean laser


there is a certin tool that PS use's to put the ps3 together that stops that part because its a cd restrictive plate that stops multple cds to be in the PS3 at a time. Ur best bet would be to either send it to P.S and have dem fix it for you or bring it to a gamestop or any other gaming store.

When I press the ps button on my dualshock 3 controller for the ps3 two lights come on over the 1 and 2 labels and it won't respond. What is the problem? It used to work fine.


Hi, I dont have a ps3 myself, but sometimes when I play at my friend's house, this happens when u got more than 4 controllers on, like the ones from gh/rockband.
Press and hold the ps button, it should get u to the screen where u can chose to turn off the system, turn off the controller or change the controller number, just put it in number 1 to 4, and should work fine.
