If it is a new PS3 controller with an old PS3 it should be as simple as plugging in the controller to the console with the USB cable. If you are trying to use a new PS3 controller with an older version console such as PS2 then it can not be done.

Controller/console fight... Help!

Well it mioght not be the controller then it might just be that the console has died because of old age or there is an internal problem with the console. SOmetimes the ac adapter can cause an N64 console not to turn on at all try a new adapter if zero luck then the console is 100% dead.

PS3 controler is dead and does not charge when connected thru usb cable to console or pc.

Battery is old or defective so you won't be able to charge it. If its new take it back if its old then throw it away and buy a new one.

Yes the controller is loose help!

Well the joy stick piece sometimes will go loose after a while because of useage and old age so I bought 4 new N64 controllers instead of ordering a joy stick piece because it was easier to buy new controllers then.
