Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games
Plug the controller in via USB and see if you can recreate the problem.
If yes, then it sounds like a faulty controller assuming it happens in all games and all menus.
If no, then unpair the PS3 controller by holding down the "ps" button and selecting "turn off controller" from the onscreen menu.
Then plug the controller into the PS3 using a USB cable and power it on by holding down the PS button again.
