While the controller is plugged into the system with USB cord try the reset button on the back of the controller (next to the center screw on top).

Can you give any information relating to the game you are trying to play? Do other games work? If your machine powers up and everything works accept the dvd drive the laser/drive maybe at fault. It maybe as simple as you need a new sixaxis dualshock 3 controller.

My ps3 controller wont charge


Bosa, you're wrong. Had the same problem. The USB cable that comes with the PS3 won't charge the new Dualshock Sixaxis. I had to use a thicker, more robust cable in order to get the controller to start charging.

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.

Dualshochock 3 controller


On the back of the controller there is a very tiny rest button.
Press and hold for 5 seconds.
Then reconnect to PS3. It should work.
This fix came from Sony Tech Support.
