Most likely the battery is defective and any time a certain amount of energy is used it powers off the control. You will need to contact Sony or the location of purchase for a warranty as the battery is defiantly defective. Rylan

How To Turn On Recovery Mode On PS3


To turn on recovery mode on your PS3 make sure you have your PS3 off,an controller charger and a controller (Does not matter what kind. EX:Afterglow,Dualshock 3 etc.). Next hold the on button on the PS3 till it turns off again. Then hold the power button on the PS3 again and when you hear two beeps really fast let go. Then it well ask you to plug your charger in and put your Dualshock 3 controller on it. It does not have to be Dualshock 3. After you have done that the recovery menu should appear. There you go your PS3 is now in recovery mode!

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

Sixaxis on ps2 ???


No, it's not possible to hook up sixaxis to PS2. Sixaxis is a part of DualShock 3 for PS3 which is an optional feature in the PS3 games. Playstation 2 controllers run off of DualShock 2. So sorry, but you're gonna need a PS3 for that.
