The main reason why a ps3 controller will not work are limited.
First, it is common for your battery to die or run flat and then require you to charge it using your game usb cord.
If you have tried this and it still doesn't work, then your controller battery have probably exceeded their life-span and as such ,may not even charge or come on. This depends on the amount of time you have used it and if it has been more than 3 years, you may need to change it.
Lastly, you can try resetting it by looking for a tiny pin hole under the controller and use a pin or a similar object to press it.
This resets the controller and clears all errors in it programming or configuration.
Hope this solution was useful to you? Please comment for more information and thank you for using the fixya website.

    This may be a little complicated. If you can give it to a repairer to help you check it real quick, maybe there are some disconnections on the board. It shouldn't be very expensive to do this.

Hi if you go onto the ps3 website and down load the update onto a usb stick then re-install it again the chances are when you was downloading the update the 1st time you got cut off due to the maintenance the ps3 network was having and this has caused corrupt data on your hard drive so give that a try failing that you will need to get your hard drive formated and start again from scratch, you will lost everything on your hard drive though so be warned

let me know if you need further assistance ok

Husband has a ps2 controller that works when it feels like it


Sorry, I didn't quite understand the question, so are you actually using the wireless PS2 controller on the PS3?? Or it is for the PS2??
When i had a PS2, I brought a 'Logitech' controller for it and it worked well for about 6months, then after that the analogues started playing up and going funny. Same thing with the 'MadCats' PS2 contorller.
Now I have a PS3, and I just brought a new SONY PS3 Dual shock controller and works perfect. The logitech one is half the price, but i trust Sony more than other brands coz it is more reliable. I dunno if this helps, but if you're willing to spend abit more it's actually worth it.
You can check on eBay for an original PS2/3 controller which would cheaper than buying one in the stores.
Cheers~
