Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Hello, my problem is with the Dualshock 3 controller from the ps3. It was working well but then it suddenly turned off and now it doesn't turn on anymore. I've tried pressing the reset button, connecting the usb cable, restarting the console... I've even connected it to my PC and it says that the software was recognized and it's ready for use. Please help!

Its due to the whole BATTERY DRAINAGE.

Connect it to console/PC and make sure that light is blinking on number 1.

Leave it for atleast 30 mins to get some charge to power.

Let me know if it works like this or not.

    Hi I have the same problem but it doesnt work on a laptop either, i also tried a new battery, the controller seems to be just dead. any help would be greatful before i buy a new one

    I tried a charging station, plugging both of them into a laptop, pc and a phone charger with the USB adapter. All of these did not work. My guess, and the most obvious one, is the controllers and junk. Time to buy new ones. Too bad the cost so much.

How To Turn On Recovery Mode On PS3


To turn on recovery mode on your PS3 make sure you have your PS3 off,an controller charger and a controller (Does not matter what kind. EX:Afterglow,Dualshock 3 etc.). Next hold the on button on the PS3 till it turns off again. Then hold the power button on the PS3 again and when you hear two beeps really fast let go. Then it well ask you to plug your charger in and put your Dualshock 3 controller on it. It does not have to be Dualshock 3. After you have done that the recovery menu should appear. There you go your PS3 is now in recovery mode!

When I press the ps button on my dualshock 3 controller for the ps3 two lights come on over the 1 and 2 labels and it won't respond. What is the problem? It used to work fine.


Hi, I dont have a ps3 myself, but sometimes when I play at my friend's house, this happens when u got more than 4 controllers on, like the ones from gh/rockband.
Press and hold the ps button, it should get u to the screen where u can chose to turn off the system, turn off the controller or change the controller number, just put it in number 1 to 4, and should work fine.

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.
