Well, if you want to charge the controller, through the console, then you use a usb cable. Plug the cable in to the PS3, then plug it into the controller. The way you can tell the controller is charging is by looking at the little red light on the controllers top in between the trigger buttons. If this light is solid ( not blinking) red, you are good to go! You may need to leave the console on.

Why-controller-not-connecting-to-console-with-or-without-USB


I usually know this is what most people do but have you followed the instructions on how to connect the controller to the PS3?

Basic steps are as follows:
Plug the controller w/ cable into ps3.
Turn on Ps3
If automatic pairing doesn't occur press the PS3 button and it should sync.

If it is brand new the batteries might be discharged and you will have to wait for them to charge up, i'd suggest a full charge (30-40 minutes sometimes) for best results.

Did you buy a PS3 controller or accidentally buy a PS4 controller? There can be a difference in wavelengths and design that is very important (beyond that they are two different versions and two different prices).

Did you buy it used, pre-owned or new? This will dictate the possible past issues had by previous owners and why it was being sold, or that you can get a new one with receipt to replace this defective one. (I say used and pre-owned as two different categories more to cite sources of vendor than actual conditions. Used would be by a friend or a non-business entity and a Pre-Owned would be by GameStop or the like who is sort of known to not accept broken devices).

Also as a last resort, on the bottom of the controller near the warrenty sticker is a small hole, stick a pin in there and hold it for 5-10 seconds. This will reset the hardware. Try the above steps again. If all else fails contact Sony CS as they are the only ones who could know whats going on... beyond a third party electronics store.

Hope any of this helps!

I bought a second hand ltf47k1cb. i cant get hdmi to work or scart sockets or audio output. i have bose surround sound system ps3 and none of them will work when connected up.


Hi,
- Turn it off so it is in standby mode,
- hold down the power button for roughly 15 seconds untill it beeps, - this should reset the settings for the PS3. - And about the "a hdmi connection has been detected, do you want to use it?" message it might be trying to display 720p.You will have to disable all resolutions except for 480 and 1080i. - set the PS3 for maximum 1080i output
Try these steps individually and then try, do not follow all the steps at one time. Try each and stop where your problem is solved, Still having problem, please let me know.
Hope this helps, please leave a comment and rate if this solution was helpful, thanks!

Hello Gdemon6 Here is a step by step instruction on how to fix this issue.
Firstly turn off your playstation 3 controller, insert the USB cable into the playstation and then the controller. Have a small pin to hand, when its flashing press the button located at the back of the controller to the top, next to the screw hole. It is a very small hole, go to settings in your playstation 3 menu. Under accessory settings, go to recalibrate controller.
Your playstation 3 controller should now be ready to use properly without any issue. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fix ya.

THE PS3 SCREEN STAY BLACK EVEN WHEN THE CONSOLE IS ON


Hi, I can help you but i need you to turn everything on and at that blank black screen insert any Disc wait like 2 seconds and tell me if the top right hand corner if theres a small loading icon looks something like a water drop ripple that pops up. If so i had the same exact problem, they way i fix mine is I replaced my HDD (2.5 SATA drive) which is located on the left side of the ps3 when layed down horizontally if you didnt know already. I went ahead and bought a new 2.5 SATA drive and replaced it with my old one that was causing the problem, most likely is caused buy corrupted data files. HOpe this helps

sorry about my previous post, it is auctually used to access a network storage device.  If you  go to mycomputer, look if any device is labeled as a "Network Drive" if there is, right click on it and select disconnect.  Then You should be able to uninstall the software by going to the control panel, selecting add or remove programs.  Navigate through the list for the program and click uninstall or remove.
