Question about Sony PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 Wireless Controller (Ceramic White)

1 Answer

I just got a brand new red PS3 wireless controller for Christmas. I tried charging it on my carging port but the red lights don't even blink. I tried connecting it to the USB cable and nothing happened at all either. It also won't sync to the system at all. I have no idea what's wrong with but have only had it for about a week.. What's wrong with it?

I have a PS3 and when i turn on my controller it works wirelessly but when i go to plug it into the system it wont charge( the lights wont even blink), i tried resetting the controllers, turning the system...


Check that the batteries in the controller are rechargeable, as some consoles that you can buy come with different things depending on the bundle you choose. I don't have a ps3 but I do have an xbox 360 and the bundle I chose did not come with a charger kit or rechargeable batteries. If they are rechargeable batteries have you tried them in a different ps3 controller to see if they will charge then?

Hi so i must charger my ps3 pad to laptop i put to usb laptop and after 24h i try conection to ps3 and nothing i buy new pad and is this same problem if you know why ???


If you are trying to charge your controller with a laptop, you have to make sure the laptop is ON for there to be power to the USB port.

The other thing I think might be the issue is you may have a bad USB cable. Try a different cable or try the cable with your PS3 while the console is turned on and see if your controller charges. You will know the controller is charging when you see the 4 blinking red lights on the top edge of the controller.

Good luck.

My PS3 controller won't turn on. When I say that, I mean the lights don't even blink. It won't charge or turn on. Please help! I can't get a refund (well, I can but not for nearly as much as I bought it...


Same thing here. I DONT KNOW IFTHIS WILL WORK FOR YOU, BUT I...cleaned both ends of the usb cable with a Q-tip and a tiny bit of alcohol. Then i swabbed the female port of the controller. I NEVER TOUCHED THE PS3. i was asfraid of doing damage. Went back online for solution tips, 10 minutes later i realized my controller lights were blinking and charging again. Hope it works for you.

Psyclone essentials ps3 wirless remote controller wont connect


just fixed mine. i went to psclones web site ...it doesn't even have the PS3 remote listed a s a product!! however by reading the PS2 manual i figured that if I basically adapted the instructions it might help...I moved the remote to the 3rd slot.. turned off controller switch... held connect button on reciever... turned on controller.... held connect button....held select button ......held down left analogue stick....in no particular order...going back and forth until i noticed the lights had started to go steady... kept holding (30 secs+) Saw a single steady red on 3rd slot...It stayed...Yeh ;O (no clue what was the deciding factor...but theres hope!!) Lesson learned..next time i pay the full price for the Sony remote... Hope this helps

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
