No light or lights were visible on my ps3 joypad when I plugged it in or when I used it as a remote device. I borrowed a relatives joypad that was definately working on his machine but although the lights came on this time when I plugged it in they didnt turn off and reduce to just one light which is what is supposed to happen. I tried it in more than one usb port but still no joy! I have tried reset button at the rear of the machine but nothing.any ideas?

Make sure the controllers are plugged into the PS3 for initial use. Are the red LED lights flashing/lit. If not the battery may be dead. Can you borrow a friend's controller to make sure the controller ports are working correctly?
Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..
Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.
Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.
The PS3 combines the features of a game console and a Blu-ray player in
one device but like many highly sophisticated devices it can easily
overheat. An overheating PS3 displays an LED on the front called the
"yellow light of death" and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Repairing a PS3 system so
that it doesn't overheat can be done at home, although you will need to
open up the case and add heat dissipation paste to the GPU and CPU
chips inside of the case. But it costs you more rather you can send the unit to SONY.
is this the ps3 bluetooth if so delete the previously registered device and on top there should be a flip cover that can open plug in to register this should imediatly fix the problem please comment back and if you know how to fix ps3 error 80710102 u will be a hero

Sounds like you need to format your hard drive, if your system will not let you do this you may need to remove the drive and either use another PS3 or connect it to your PC, the PS3 uses a SATA drive like the drives found in laptops, it is formatted to FAT32, if you need to back up data you can either use an external memory device connected to your PS3 and use the backup option in menu or if that is not possible due to tech problems with the console connect drive to your pc and copy all data to a folder, please remember that the drive is FAT32 if you format on your pc, the best way to connect the drive to your pc is with an external HDD case, borrowing one rather than buying would be a good option, anyhoo so either way you have formatted your drive you replace it and now the system should say it is formatting again this is fine just let it do its thing, if you want a stable way to update visit the official site and download the latest updates for the PS3 and place onto an external memory device and connect to the console and update from there. I hope i have atleast shed some light on the problem if nothin else good luck and be lucky :)
