The screen say connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button but nothing happens

Be sure that your controller is in working condition and the USB cable. There is a little pin size hole on the back of the controller. Use a safety pin to press the button to reset the controller. Your system could be frozen as well. Obviously you are trying to access the recovery menu. Why?

I recently purchased a PS3 slim and I'm trying to set it up but the controller won't connect. It just flashes it's 4 red lights then stops. I'm using a PS2 connector cable. What do I do?

Huh? It's a wireless device that doesn't use a connector cable nevertheless a PS2 cable. All it needs is a standard USB cable with the connector that fits. Didn't your PS3 come with one of these? Mine did. I think what's happening with your controller, though, is that it needs to be charged... .with the USB cable... connected to the front of the unit.

Controller not charging or connecting, none of the lights go on

The controllers still have a built in battery pack like all others, and after a while they will weaken and die. You can attempt (Don't know how easy this would be) to change the battery pack. If not, a new controller may be necessary.

Also, try to use that USB cable to hook up a camera or other device first, just to make sure you don't have a bad cable.
