You have to reset your ps3 controller to sync to your ps3 consule. to do so you need: Small paper clip or cloths pin, ps3 controller *DUH* and glasses.

1. turn your ps3 consule off.
2. flip the ps3 controller upside down
3. Underneath close to the right hand corner where the thumbstick rest there will be a small [ ] <-square
4. in the center of the square there is a ( ) ,- circle
5. that circle is the reset botton
6. with the small pin or paper clip press the circle till the blinks stop *USUALL 5 TO 10 SECONDS*
7. turn only your consule back on and press the home botton to the controller you are trying to sync

**DO NOT TURN ON ANY OTHER CONTROLLER TILL THAT CONTROLLER IS FINALLY SYNC**

I have a madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

My x box 360 had the red ring of death, but after a few days cleared itself, but now the wireless controllers will not sync with the unit. They both just blink green lights. i bought a usb cable to plug...


Just to make sure your doing to resync right, first press the button on the console then on the controller so the light on the console is rolling and then on the controller.

there is not much that we can do, unless you get the 3 lights back again that would help us a little to know what fault it detects. now the wireless controller board can be replaced, but since the USB is not working either that would not fix the problem.

it looks like there is something wrong with the mainboard of the xbox, and I won't know more until you get the 3 red lights again and we read the error code from the unit.

to read the error code when you have 3 red lights flashing. Hold down the consoles controller sync button and then press on the eject button, the flashing lights will change, note how many lights do you see, write it down or something, and then press the buttons again, now again the lights change, note how many and do it 2 more times, and you should be back to the 3 lights, tell me what error code it gave you.

now a example of a error code = 4 lights, 4 lights, 2 lights, 4 lights. That would be 0020
(4lights = 0, 3 lights = 3, 2 lights = 2, 1 light = 1)

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you


Rate me if it works so that i can help other people like you!

Thanks for using Fixya

On the frount of the xbox by the memory card slots there is a little white button. If you press that were your green light on your xbox is on the fround of the console little bars will spin. Ontop of your controller, next to where you put in your plug and play there is also a little white button press it and both the controller and the console should link. =] if fails keep trying. =]

YT-9014A1 will not sync


i just sync both of mine to my ps3 it was giving me difficult at first, but i noticed the when u first put in ur usb wireless thing it starts to blink really fast and when u push the p3 button on the controller twice it flashes really fast. so i took out the wireless usb thing then put it back in so the light on it would be flashing really fast like it was searching for somthing, then press the p3 button twice to make the lights flash really fast aswell so it will sync with it. Thats how i got both of my controllers synced we my ps3. the lights on on the wireless usb thing and the controller lights must be flashing fast at the same time to sync.

Sixaxis not connecting


The only thing I know to do is with they system off press the PS button on the controller. While the lights are flashing, manually turn on the Playstation using the touch button on the machine. This is what I have had to do in the past and it worked for me. I hope it does the same for you.

Wii remotes will not stay on


1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
3. Remove the battery pack & install regular batteries.
4. On the back of the Wii remote press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
5. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
6. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
7. Quickly remove the batteries and reinsert your Battery Pack.
8. Return to Step 2 for each other remote.

You may run into this issue any time your battery pack has a 0% charge left in it for a duration. Try to keep them charged to prevent it from occuring in the future.
