First of all dont panic!

it happens to everyone, we have 3 playstation 3's in our house.
basically all it has done is either run out of charge.
or has lost sync with your console.
all you need to do is connect it with the supplied cable and press the ps button.
all 4 lights will flash momenterally and it will re-synch or start charging.

My ps3 controller wont connect. i hit the ps button and all 4 lights on controller start blinking. ps3 is hoked to tv with a hdmi cord and it says no signal.


Hey there,
You just need to sync your controller with your ps3. To do so, use the USB cable that plugs into the controller and into a usb port of your ps3.
You will then be able to start your ps3 and push that ps3 button on your controller, once the ps3 has started, and you'll be good to go.

The lights come on the playstation, but the screen stays black, and it doesnt read the controller, the controller just keeps blinking.


For the screen try making sure the cable is firmly connected to both your ps3 and your tv. For the controller, plug the controller into you playstation with a usb cord and then press the ps button.

After downloading the new update, my controller won't work. I pressed the PS button as requested, but it still doesn't work.


Sometimes try hooking the usb cord up to your controller and try pushing the ps button as asked if it works your controllers battery pack is junk and you have to always use usb cord or replace the battery pack.

After formating PS3


You need to plug your sixaxis controller to the ps3 with the usb cord to marry the control to your system. after unplugging and pressing the home button it should link up. If not try using another usb cord or plug on the ps3.

Hope this helps.
