SOURCE: I a playstation 3 Blue-ray disc remote control which wont pair

Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.

SOURCE: hi our controllers wont charge

Are you charging it correctly? To charge the controller, you use the PS3 charge cable that should have come with the controller (it's a USB A to mini B cable). Plug the USB A end into any port on the PS3 console and plug the mini-USB B side into the PS3 controller. The controller will only charge if the console is on.

Are the USB slots on the PS3 busted? Try a different slot on the PS3 console, or try a known working controller/cable combination on the slot in question. Alternatively, you can use something that has a USB port on it to charge your controller (for example, a laptop or PC). Again you must make sure the device that is charging the controller is on.

If the problem was the PS3, you can send it in for repair (if under warranty, it's free; otherwise it's 150$ so it might be better to just deal with the broken USB port).

Maybe the cable is broken? Try another cable, if possible, with a USB slot and controller you know is working. If it is the cable you can get replacements for really cheap.

If you can confirm that it's none of the above, the problem is probably with the controller. The first thing you should try is resetting the controller. There's a small button on the back of the controller, near the L2 button. You'll need a paper clip, but just press that. Then try to use it/recharge it again.

If it still won't charge it's possible the controller is dead (as in the battery will no longer hold a charge). The best way to confirm this is to try and use your controller while it's plugged in (as if to charge it); if it works while plugged in, but stops when you unplug it then the battery has died. You can replace the battery yourself (there are instructions in the PS3 manual), or send in the controller to Sony for a replacement (assuming it's a first-party controller aka made by Sony). If you're under warranty it's free (first party peripherals are covered), otherwise they may still take it for a fee but I'm not sure.

Hope you're able to fix the problem!

How do i set up my old playstation 1???


Connect the cables to the ports on the back of the PlayStation console marked "audio out" and "video out." Make sure to match the same-coloucoloured plugs on the cables and the ports - yellow to yellow, red to red, white to white.

Connect the other ends of the audio/video cables to the ports on the back of the television or VCR marked "audio/video input.

Connect the AC power cord to the PlayStation game console and plug it into a wall socket for power.

Turn on the television, VCR (if included in the connection) and PlayStation console.

Press a button on the remote control to access the audio/video inputs for your television or VCR. The button will be labeled "video," "aux," "auxiliary," "tuner" or "line TV/video." You may need to set your television or VCR to channel 00, 90, 91 or 92. If the remote control does not have the buttons described here, check the product's instruction manual.

TV picture pauses in and out but sound is OK

You will have to search your owners manual for the television and the remote control. Look for the video control operations, you must check each function, until you find the one that you may have changed. If you do not find any problem with the setting of the controls of the television or remote control, you should check the signal input connections to you television for intermittent operation. This could be a loose connection or a connection that is dusty and dirty. You may also have a bad cable connection. Check the cables and see if you can make the picture stay on. If you can do this by moving the connection cable, you have a bad cable and should change it. If you are using a antenna, you will want to clean it off, this will allow better signal contact and more signal strength to your television. The same will happen when you clean all the connecting cables. If you still are unable to fix the problem, you may have a problem with the TV tuner. It may have become intermittent and losing contact with the video sync circuits. This problem should be check out by a qualified service technician.They will be able to test the television and determine the problem with the loss of signal control. I hope this information helps you solve you problem. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

Want to connect non wireless remote controls to console

No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped
