To assign the contollers, you need to plug them direcly into the PS3 for a minute, then unplug and restart. (You only need to do this once, but sometimes every so often)

Make sure your TV is set to the correct input method for the PS3 to show up on the screen. Ex. HDMI

My ps3 wireless controller will turn off my ps3 console. Why won't the controller turn on the ps3 console?


Try to resync the controller. With the system off, plug in the usb charging cord. then turn the system on. Use a pin to click the reset on the back of the controller. It should flash a number of times. Then it will stay on #1. It might take care of it. Good luck.

My ps3 fat won't pick up any ps3 wireless controller; solution


Install your usb charger cord to the system, and the controller before you turn it on. Then after you turn on the system, use a small pin, or paper clip to hit the reset button on the bottom of the controller. This solution works for all PS3 types, not just the fats. All that use Bluetooth controllers. Good luck. ^^

It turns on and comes onto a report problem so i send it but sometimes a report problem doesn't come up nether the less either way it starts for about 7 seconds then just freezes won't let me move...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

When i turn my ps3 on my screen is all black and when i try to reset my system and when it tells me to connect my controller and press the ps button it doesint do anythink, please help


Can I just check that you are actually using a USB cable to connect the controller to the PS3? And sometimes it takes a couple of presses for it to register. Try again for me and see what happens.

If you have a BD Remote or a USB PS2 to PS3 controller converter connected to your PS3, it will automatically assign your PS3 controller to #2 to rectify this problem do the following:
  • Reassign BD Remote to #7.
  • USB PS2 to PS3 controller converter will need to be disconnected.

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.

PS3 SETUP


Hi, This May help ?

You can change the controller port/number assignments. If the controller port/number is specified by the software, assign the appropriate controller port/number.*
Controller port 2-D cannot be assigned using the PS3 system.

You can check the current controller assignments by pressing the PS button on the controller.
