Hello Gdemon6 Here is a step by step instruction on how to fix this issue.
Firstly turn off your playstation 3 controller, insert the USB cable into the playstation and then the controller. Have a small pin to hand, when its flashing press the button located at the back of the controller to the top, next to the screw hole. It is a very small hole, go to settings in your playstation 3 menu. Under accessory settings, go to recalibrate controller.
Your playstation 3 controller should now be ready to use properly without any issue. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fix ya.

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

Let me know if that resolves your issues, if not there is Plan B.

Black ops PS3 will not install, first copy installed then had to delete, took back to shop and replaced now will not install 2nd copy, all other games work please help!!


Are you speaking of the software for the actual game?

I would like for you to save your saved data onto a thumb drive or external hard drive and do the following: It appears that your system is glitching and will need to be restored or reformatted.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5. If

this doesn't work, you may have to replace your HARD DRIVE. This is a

problem that I have faced before.

when you next turn on your system you will have to quickly hold your finger down on the on/off buttons simutaniously for around 4-5 secs till you hear some beeping noises, hopefully this will start again with no problems.
